1999 Volkswagen Passat GLS 1.8T Turbo 4dr Sedan

Review

Since purchasing this car three years ago I have had nothing but problems. I had to replace the clutch @ 110k, the automatic locks stopped working and worst of all-it started to flood and no one can figure where out it's coming from! So poorly designed they have the comfort control module under the drivers feet, obviously where water can get into if the car is leaking. Water has gotten into the comfort control and has effected the entire performance of the car and it stopped starting. I had to pay $2k to have the module completely redone and found out the passats have a problem with leaking through the sunroof! These repairs should have been covered as it is obviously a manufacture defect!

Best Features

None

Worst Features

Correct leaking of water into the car, do not put something that controls so many aspects of the cars functionality where it could potentially get wet (duh!)
