1990 Volkswagen Passat Sedan GL 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought my 1990 Passat for my first car, and I don't regret it. Petunia May, (her name) is an awesome highway car, but it is hard to park in tight areas. Other than that, I love it. I had to do some break repairs to it which cost an arm and a leg, but to me that is wear and tear parts. They are going to need attention one time or another in any car you buy.


Best Features

The power moonroof, tilting front and back seats, roominess, handling, good gas mileage, and power on the highway.


Worst Features

Give it better acceleration in first gear and better wiper controls.

Review

I bought my passat with 140,000 miles
on it and it was immaculate. It runs
great and nothing has gone wrong with
it yet. Great value. Front wheel drive
is great in snow and the car is
generally fun to drive with a fast yet
rock solid feel. Nice factory exhaust
tip and exhaust. Acceleration is a bit
slow, but that is expected for a car
of this size with 140 horsepower.
Super smooth ride. 110 mph feels as
smooth as 60 does. Gas mileage is
about 25 mpg. Overall, I'd reccomend
this car to anyone who wants a sporty
sedan with plenty of room to boot.


Best Features

THe interior is roomy with plenty of room to recline and drop the sttering wheel, while saving lots of legroom for rear passengers. Rear seats recline, and fold down for more cargo space.


Worst Features

Power windows, locks, and power 2-way sunroof are definately desired for this car, but simplicity means less things to maintain. Automatic transmission is a bit quirky, shifts at odd times, but that is solved by the sport mode switch, so the engine revvs higher before shifting.

Review

Generally we like this car. Expensive
to repair - although once repaired it
is ok. Comfortable to drive, good
mileage, easy handling. We would not
buy another Passat because they are
simply too expensive. We know someone
who has a 1996 and they think it is a
money pit.

Review

I just recently bought my passat and I
was very pleased when I found the car
for the amount of money they were
asking for. Now that I have mine
something always seems to go wrong and
I don't know of any places close by
where I can take my car.


Best Features

I love the body and interior of my volks. I enjoy the power window and the sunroof aswell.


Worst Features

I wish the people who had my car before me would of taken better cared of it.
