Fun to drive - rough on the wallet
By Jeremy on
1999 Volkswagen Passat GLS 1.8T Turbo 4dr Wagon
This car is really fun to drive. It handles well. It costs WAY too much to maintain. $900 to replace the timing belt. $500 to replace the brakes. Timing belt slipped and had to get the engine replaced. Found a used one for $3000 as opposed to the $7000 the dealership quoted me. Basically it's not worth having because it costs too much to maintain.
The handling, heated seats
VW needs to make their cars affordable to maintain
