Top of the line VW?
By Lori Cox on

Vehicle

1997 Volkswagen Passat GLX V6 4dr Sedan

Review

Love driving the car, hate the design. You would think buying the top of the line VW would insure top of the line quality. Not so. All four door handles have broken (some more than once), power windows failing, and we've had several mechanical failures before 50000 miles. Dealers are inept and rude. Dealer parts and labor are astronomical. I will never buy a VW again.

Favorite Features

Drives great, very comfortable.

Suggested Improvements

Make your "top of the line" worthy of the title. Redesign door handles and power windows!! Train your dealers in customer service and don't gouge your customers on prices, especially for parts that shouldn't be failing!
