98 Passat --nice while it lasted
By pdhorn on

Vehicle

1998 Volkswagen Passat GLS 1.8T Turbo 4dr Sedan

Review

Car still drives and handles well but costly electrical problems have developed, forcing me to donate it on the market after 142,000 miles. Sunroof and door locks mysteriously stopped working--costly to repair.

Best Features

Brakes, overall handling. Smooth and quiet on the highway.

Worst Features

Visibility and seating position could be better.
