The features were okay but there were not enough pictures of the torn seats in the car. I bought the car anyway but I may not have if I had known about the seats ahead of time.

Great Second Car - Except Brakes And Headlights... — Great second car - except brakes and headlights...Headlights - very dim low beam lights force me to use high beam most of the time. Brakes - seem to be replacing brake pads and rotors way too often. Great handling and upgraded sound options. .

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great handling and upgraded sound options.  .

Cons: Headlights - very dim low beam lights force me to use high beam most of the time.  Brakes - seem to be replacing brake pads and rotors way too often.

Good Overall Estate — Powerful turbo, thirsty in petrol guide, opt for a diesel, Nice looks, good feel on the road, pulls like a train even fully loaded! good road holding, nice firm seats, tempted to try a TDI varient though the poor sump design puts me off.

Pros: good load carry capacity

Cons: poor oil sump design leads to filter clogs and then further issues with failing pump costly repair.

I Love This Car! — The acceleration, braking, and handling are all excellent. No squeaks, rattles, or repairs. Exterior style is nice. Interior style could be better, but very nice. Very good gas mileage-about 21mpg in the city and 31 on the highway. A blast to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun and sporty, yet safe and secure.

Cons: I can't service it myself.

Either Love It Or Hate It. — This is a very solid car with many amenities wich compares with more expensive veihicles. It has an excellent ride with the perfect balance between high speed firmness and low speed comfort. The german engineering is palpable in all areas inlcuiding the fit and finish as well as the quality of materials. As all VW it needs special care in the maintanence and accesories wihc tends to show thier age ahead of time. Besides this is trulyan "inexpensive" drivers car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Affordable drivers car.

Cons: Auto care

'01.5 New Passat Glx 4motion — Be careful, once you get near 90XXX miles the timing belt MUST be changed or else you'll bend a few valves and that turns into an expensive repair. The 4Motion is the way to go, AWD or bust, great handling. Power is limited to 190HP and there's not much out there to upgrade it, but it will get up and go, and once you figure out the TipTronic transmission you'll be set

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handling/luxury

Cons: Repair costs/mileage in the 4Motion model

The V6 engine (which is otherwise stellar) creates way too much torque steer and wheel spin on the front wheel drive Passat. Also, the DSG transmission (V6 model) is jerky at lower speeds. The 1.8... Read More
