The Passat is a great vehicle. Only
problem and it's been a big one is that
after 115000 miles my transmission gave
out. My mechanic who sent it to an
authorized VW service center has had the
car on and off for the last 3 months
while they try to work out the kinks.
Have a 1987 Quantum(the original Passat)
and after over 200000 miles the original
transmission gave out. Lets see an
American car do that.
Overall, the best car I've ever owned,
in spite of the transmission problem.
