1997 Volkswagen Passat GLX V6 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought my Passat on a trade-in and what a difference from the Mazda I drove! Solid, responsive, balanced...yeah, a little underpowered with the auto, but a blast down the hwy. or back roads. Sure it needs fixing more than a Ford and parts aren't cheap (not to mention my dealer sucked!), but for pure driving enjoyment, I couldn't have made a better choice!

Best Features

Roomy interior w/ folding rear seats = mucho cargo space. Ride quality is forgiving, but not cushy. Sunroof, A/C puts out, leather has better feel than a Bimmer's.

Worst Features

Sound system, door handles, turbo option, better gas mileage. Transmission @100K feels weak these days
