2000 Volkswagen Passat GLS 1.8T Turbo 4dr Sedan


Review

I've had a lot of used cars and this one tops the replacements I have had to put in it. The sludge build up required motor and everything connected to the motor to be replaced (hoses, belts, etc). I also had cracked pipes. And, to top it off I now have the ABS module gone bad. I have a 99 Taurus that I've only spent 1000 on so far. This car, I've spent over 5000, and , I haven't replaced the module yet!

2000 Volkswagen Passat GLS 1.8T Turbo 4dr Sedan


Review

38 - 40 on a long trip. Stick shift is smooth. Lots of leg and headroom. Best car I've ever owned. Far superior to my '91 Passat.


Best Features

Roomy interior and great gas economy. Trip computer. Immense trunk!


Worst Features

Premium fuel is a hassle. Should run on regular. I've been using 87 octane with no knocks.

Review

Don't get me wrong here... VW's are excellent cars when they are running 100%. The problem is 99% of the time they are not running properly. Case in point here is my 2000 Passat 1.8T. After 5 years of ownership, I drowned thousands of dollars into repairs. Blown turbo, oil cooler cracked, brakes went soft early on too. The list goes on and on. Sludge had built up in the engine and finally, after 83k miles, the heater core broke. I will NEVER buy a VW again. This is the worst car I've ever dealt with and I don't know why I kept it for so long.


Best Features

Winter traction control, informational dash display


Worst Features

Make an engine last longer than a few thousand miles before having a problem occur.
