1997 Volkswagen Passat GLX V6 4dr Wagon

Review

Although purchased used, this car was great until it reached its fifth birthday. Over the last five years this car has nickeled and dimed (or more accurately $500 and $1,000) us to death, especially with the pesky check engine light that has been diagnosed at least three times. I've put more into this wagon over the last five years than I did for my last two Toyotas which had double the mileage. So much for my European love affair, I'm going back to the orient where my cars have been reliable to over 150,000 miles

Favorite Features

How it has lots of room both for passengers and cargo.

Suggested Improvements

Has VW ever heard of "continual improvement"? If not their engineers should take a course on how to build a reliable car.
