1999 Volkswagen Passat 4 Dr GLS 1.8T Turbo SedanReview

Passat — The VW is pretty much a excellent turbo engine on a car that has more clitched then a robot build by Homer Simpson. The car flings around corners on try days with percision but suffers under wet weather as it is not four wheel drive. The car feels so much more bigger inside then outside which gives it a rich feeling but suffers when you are parking

Pros: Power Train, interior

Cons: Glitches and how easy it is to screw up the alighnment. Cost of fixing

V-dubbin' — This is a really awesome car. Leave it to V-Dub to produce such a solid car. its quick but not so fast that you have to get in trouble. its got style. it hasnt had alot of problems. and the gas milage is great stuff.

Pros: almost everything

Cons: the damn cup holders are the worst idea ive seen in a car in a while!

. — I really like this car because it's a great all around car. It's got room for 4 adults (and a fifth if they're not all as big as i am!) and drives comfortably on long road trips. I've modified things such as the turbo and suspension so that it is faster and handles better. Also added lighter wheels and better tires to round it out (to name a few things). It's inexpensive to maintain and there's great support on Passatworld.com

Pros: Passatworld has saved my passat multiple times and it'd be gone if not for this forum.  Thanks!!

Cons: Dealer support is spotty at best.  not an issue as Passatworld has my back.

'99 Passat (1.9 Tdi) - 110 Bhp — It's reliable, solid and quite powerful. I am yet to find a car with a more comfortable driving position and for a ten year old car, it still looks bloody good :-) Consumption is slightly high for a diesel...but it's worth it coz it's really fun to drive!! Spare parts are on the more expensive side!!

Pros: Size, Comfort and Torque

Cons: Expensive to Repair

Old Reliable Darth! — I've owned Darth since 99 and he's only been in the shop once for any mechanical issues. There have been a few little issues here and there that came up but in general he;s been a solid driver. Just wish there was a little more power on tap.

Pros: Style
Reliability
fit & finish

Cons: Power
Front Wheel Drive

R Line is a good value. 2900 mile trip and averaged 34 mpg. Features are okay. USB for CarPlay is in a bad place because it is in the bottom of a tray pointing up and catches all the small particles ... Read More
