The Bottom Line Is , Go & Get One Of You`re Able Too, They`ll Last A Lifetime — this was a 1989 car - a 1.8 gl - performance was really good - at worst the way i`d drive it, it would do 30 m.p.g. - the best it would do 44/46 m.p.g. - so long as you kept the revs around 4,500 r.p.m. it would keep up with most cars out there - the most i had out of her was 128 m.p.h. - build quality as with all volkswagens was exellent - i damn good car to look at too - so damn easy to work on & maintain too - an absolute hoot to drive - the only critisism i`d have was with the electrics just before i got rid of it, they went right up the swanny lol

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: reliability - performance - fuel economy - build quality - looks

Cons: no reason to avoid these at all

Vw Passat 35i — Basic, good car. Nothing bad to say about it. Except the 1.6 engine, which sucked. Way too underdimensioned for the size of the car. It was good to drive. Corrosion was a minor problem. Some electric faults showed up and minor technic problems.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Big, really spacious, and smooth to drive.  Cheap spare parts.

Cons: Corrosion, basically ungly
