1997 Volkswagen Passat GLX V6 4dr Sedan
I am a new driver and this is the first car that I have bought. I didn't really pick this car, it was more seredipity that i found it. It was everything I was looking for, relativly cheap (under $4,000) spacious, and not an American car. At first it was great, then a couple of problems occured. Nothing too serious, a dead battery because of a broken relay, an alternator that stopped working. These are significant problems yes, but easly fixed and they are not harmful to the car or people inside of the car. Overall the car is very exciting, fast, and handles beautifully. Even with its problems it has been worth it. I couldnt have asked for anything more.
2.8 liter VR6. When you step on it, it goes. And the heated seats are great in the winter. Trunk has a lot of space. Rear passanger seats have a lot of leg room.
Gas milage is pretty low. 18/26 is not that much, but then again it does have a 2.8 liter VR6...
