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.
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
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.
