1990 Volkswagen Passat GL 4dr Sedan


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.
