1996 Volkswagen Passat GLX V6 4dr Wagon
Review
This is my second Volkswagen Passat. My first one was a '91 Passat which I loved. I decided to upgrade for the VR6. With 176 horsepower on tap on a much heavier car it wasn't going to win any races. This car has been a dismal experience, as the O2 sensors (in engine bay and under the fuel tank) have gone out, as well as the thermostat and automatic transmission. After thousands of dollars in repairs and countless man hours of doing the work myself, I have finally gotten rid of the beast.
Favorite Features
This is a fun to drive German car. It has the typical stiff suspension and dealer support network (NOW).
Suggested Improvements
Improve the reliability. Lower the cost of parts for repair. Improve the cheap interior materials, fuel mileage, and dealer support network (up until 2004).
