1998 Volkswagen Passat GLS V6 4dr Sedan

Review

When we first bought this car we loved it. Then the honeymoon was over. The car got real buggy fast. It has been a relentless pain in the a**. Electrical system problems all you can eat style. Door locks and alarm problems are annoying but the ecu/ecm problems are the real killer. Cha ching bring your checkbook or if it is real bad hope your credit line is impressive. The suspension is a nice drive till you have to fix it, then wow how much did you say that was gonna cost. Do yourself a favor if your wife falls in love with one of these. Promise to let her have another baby or divorce her. Either would be cheaper than owning one of these cars.

Favorite Features

Good handling. Not to bad power for the MPG.

Suggested Improvements

Wow ware do I start. How about a car that does not require a swiss bank account to fix and does not want to get quite so close with the VW dealer service bay. Put a warning sticker on the car.
