Fun to drive - rough on the wallet

1999 Volkswagen Passat GLS 1.8T Turbo 4dr Wagon

Review

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.

Favorite Features

The handling, heated seats

Suggested Improvements

VW needs to make their cars affordable to maintain
