Amazing — love the five speed tranny and its amazing acceleration. the 2.0 litre is very suprising as far as performance, it spanked my old eclipse in a race... this little think flew past me like i was sittin still in third gear

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: five speed

Cons: four door

1990 Volkswagen Passat 4 Dr GL SedanReview

Good Car For People Who Now How To Fix Them — Be prepared to dig into your pockets if you own one of these, bought the car for $1200, had it for 3 years, put about $6000 in repairs, sold it for $300, definately lost out on this one.

Pros: Zippy little car, fun to drive, 5-speed

Cons: Always had something broken every week, would stall randomly, mostly at stop lights.

1990 Volkswagen Passat 4 Dr GL WagonReview

Fun Car For A Nearly 20yr Old Family Hauler! — I purchased a 1990 GL Wagon earlier this year. After a tune up and some new tires it is a great car. Enough power to zip through everyday traffic. Plenty of room for the family and the two dogs. I was surprised by all the features for a car in this class from 1990.

Owner for 1 years, 0 months

Pros: Fun to drive, lots of features, very functional family car.

Cons: Service costs, no cup holders, annoying automatic seatbelts that plagued many cars of the late 80's/early 90's

2015 Volkswagen Passat Reviews

Love This Car... By dpkdo731

I like the fuel efficiency, cost and stylishness of the vehicle. It is sporty, but does not lose its ability to be professional and classy. The 45-50MPG is fantastic and the Diesel TDI will go fore... Read More

Made For America With German Engineering. By Pal_venkat

I have recently bought my VW Passat 1.8 TSI SE with Nav. Initially went to buy VW Golf then ended up with the Passat because of the size. I love the interior not being too busy. Very simple and decent... Read More

This Is A Surprisingly Good Ride. By BobSteveVA

I've been a BMW driver for about 12 years and loved the 5 series I drove. After not being able to get a manual transmission and reaching my max to spend for a set of wheels, I decided to stay German b... Read More

Best Diesel Car/sedan For Your Money. Period. By 5DDFL

Everything about it is fantastic! Owning this has sold me on the TDI brand for life. Having the Diesel engine is a bit more expensive so I wouldn't suggest buying a new one unless you plan on drivin... Read More

A Fuel-sipping Champion. By Beta_400

This is a terrific all around family car. The seating is huge, it is fuel efficient, and handles well. The design is spartan and timeless. The only thing I've noticed over time is that the paint doesn... Read More

Great Overall Car By tneff350

This car was great. I did much out of town traveling and experienced great MPG through my interstate travels. Even better while traveling down two-lane roadways at 65-70 MPH. Very roomy car with lots ... Read More

Solid Family Car By ElephantMovers

I loved the style and handling, I was worried about the breaking system and reports about the car being slow to stop, but have had no problems so far. The back seat area is great for our kids. The hea... Read More

Love It By JS1828

One of the best vehicles I've driven. The antenna system seems to act up during cold weather as the receiver has to warm up before the signal goes to 100% during warm up it only receives at about 65% ... Read More

3d Passat And No Wonder! By nedm

This 2010 is truly the last of the good performance Passats. VW blew it with the underpowered 2012+. It is simply a blast to drive. The 2.0L turbo w/ 200 hp is amazingly responsive and FAST! No wonder... Read More
