1997 Volkswagen Passat GLX V6 4dr Sedan

Review

This is the second VW product I have owned and it has lived up to every expectation I have. I was surprised when the right front wheel bearing went out at 50K, but that was easily replaced. A quick V6 that gets 25 mpg, an easy to read dashboard, comfortable riding car. We even took the family vacation with this car, a very large trunk and the room in the back seat is enough the kids can't kick the front seats. I wouldn't tell anyone to stay away. One more thing, I was rear ended and only the bumper cover was replaced on my car, the other car sustained much more damage. I feel very safe in this car.

Favorite Features

The shifting is easy and powerful and the car handles very well. Also enjoy how much cabin and trunk space in this car.

Suggested Improvements

Add a glove box and some better drink holders. One touch on the power sunroof would be nice as well.
