Great Family Wagon — Couldn't want a better family wagon. It's diesel, 4wd, full with all possible factory fitted stuff; such as sport seats, ACC etc.

Pros: Cheap 2 drive, good family wagon

Cons: diesel slow, it's white(not my pic)

German-engineered. Driver Found. — This was the car that first started my obsession and the only car that developed enough of a character that I actually named her. Intelligent German design and sophisticated looks. Confidence inspiring autobahn handling. It was hard giving her up and I still miss her.

Pros: German design. Solid build. Autobahn handling.

Cons: V6 needs more power.

Recommended To Us In '98, It Has Truly Been A Joy To Drive, Unsurpassed In Comfort And Space For Car Its Size, With Style And Extra Features As Well As A Decent Price. — My husband originally talked me into the Passat when I wanted a BMW. I have not regretted our decision and think the Passat, as well as the newer Jettas, to be some of the most attractive cars on the road. I have been asked by many people if I enjoy driving mine. It's as if they already know the answer. We have since purchased a 2005 Jetta (used/certified with extended warranty) for our daughter and she has been equally pleased. With routine maintenance ours have been relatively trouble-free. It is only after 8 years that I have begun to have some mild problems starting it, so we are currently investigating the cause.

Owner for 7 years, 8 months

Miles Driven per Year:10,000

Pros: Economical, quiet, comfortable, easy handling, many nice features including tiptronic, spacious inside, reliable with great style.

Cons: It is slow to pick up speed, and when cold transmission seems stuck in first gear for a few moments. Only disappointing feature has been the drink holders and limited storage space in console and glove.

Affordable Luxury — This car had one of the widest array of no-charge features, including: split rear seat sunroof trip computer excellent sound system alloy wheels adjustable intermittent wipers, and assisted braking (ABS). Gets great gas mileage--32 MPG on average with the Passat VW tires (I lost about 2 MPG of that with a replacement set of Kelly, all season radials). Really a great car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: With zippy engine, and manual shift, this car is still fun to drive at 170k + miles. Great in the New England snow with all season radials. Has many added features that one would normally pay extra for in most cars--see review.

Cons: The old engine seized up at 80k miles, but VW supplied me with a new one, no questions asked. I've changed with synthetic oil ever since, and no problems. AAMCO Rebuilt the clutch at 100k miles or so; still going strong. The sunroof leaked until I learned merely to clear the drainage tubes in the front passenger door jambs. The cloth headliner now sagging a bit.
No rust despite 11 New England salty winters, but the clear coat is starting to wear away from the paint.

Fun Sedan — I got this car broken. the transmission is the problem and when fixed i can tell this car will be amazing. the sound system in the car is crazy and the upholstery is amazing. black leather interior. i know this car willl be fun to drive with the windows and the sunroof down. The car was absolutely amazing, comfortable and even in the end was amazing when I slammed into an SUV who went through the stop sign going down hill. Kept me safe and also gave me twice the amount i bought it for from insurance.

Pros: interior

Cons: build quality
