German for "Piece of Junk"
By theronald on
1997 Volkswagen Passat GLX V6 4dr Sedan
This car was really nice for about the first 3 years that we owned it. Ever since that point, it has had many nagging, expensive, and repetitive failures. (Among those too numerous to mention - Door Handles, Controller, O2 Sensors, Belt-tensioner) The Yellow light has been on more than it has been "off". Were it not for the fact that I was unemployed on & off for most of the past 4 years, we would have "dumped" it on some other poor sap. Have talked to several other GLX owners - most had same problems. Their highly-touted "German Engineers" should all be fired, and replaced by the guys from GM. (I've never had to replace all 4 door handles on a Buick twice!)
It IS roomy inside
Fire the idiots who decided to use Bosch Engine Controls, plus the completely incompetent, inept idiots who designed and approved the design of the door handles.
