Beware of snap-on hubcaps and cheap
roof rack material. I have had 4
hubcaps come off after 2 different VW
dealerships did maintenance and rotated
my tires. I also had a plastic piece
of my roof rack fall off. It is normal
now to look around my car to see if
everything is in place before I drive
it. Is this Quality?
We have owned this car for a year and
half and have only had one problem that
was immediately replaced through
recall. This car runs great and is a
pleasure to drive. I especially like
the interior layout and amount of room.
We bought out Passat GLX with a manual
5-speed because the dealer gave us a
very good deal. My wife also enjoys
driving the 5-speed because it is so
smooth and effortless. The V6 is very
luxurious and has good power,
especially at low rpm's in traffic.
This car eats up the highway miles in
comfort and style. I see all the SUV
drivers staring at my VW wagon with
envy. My wife thinks the Passat looks
so much better than the new Accord and
Camry, and I agree. We've had it for
one year and 18k miles with no
Front seats, big rear seat with great
headroom in the wagon, the GLX is
loaded with so many great features
that cost extra on other cars.
