2002 Volkswagen Passat GLS 1.8T 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

We got VW Passat 02 wagon on 06.2007 in CarMax with 51K miles on it. For the 7 month after we bought it, we spent $1500 for repairs. I got 16.5 mpg per city and 22 mpg on highway. It is the worst car: No Fuel Economy, High cost of maintenance. Bad Electric, brakes, and engine part. I did not expect the bad quality from German car producer, but I experienced it with my Passat. Service cost is too high. After 3 month the problems started with window power and electric cables&wires. Nobody could explain why station wagon "eats" gasoline as a Chevy Suburban. It is unbelievable, but I got 16 miles per gallon in city. I will never buy any VW product and would not recommend to someone else. Just bad

Favorite Features

1. The Interior is comfortable for the long distance driving; 2. It is really big inside and a lot of useful space for the families with the kids; 3. It is really good on highways, speeding, "keeps' road well;

Suggested Improvements

1. Fuel Economy NOW 2. Transmission 3. Timing Belts 4. Make a less labor cost for the repairs 5. Electric wires and cables on the windows and doors 6. REGULAR GASOLINE - NO MORE PREMIUM GASOLINE ANYMORE 7. Suspension system quality 8. Engine parts quality 9. Service place improvements!!!!!
