2002 Volkswagen Passat GLS 1.8T 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
If you insist on buying a Passat, stay away from the 4 cylendar. We have had more problems with this car in two years than I have had with my '96 corolla in 9 years. We had to have it towed twice for ignition coil failures. The passenger side seatbelt broke and it took 2 weeks to get it repaired. Then several trips to the dealer for the check engine light which dumbfounded the technicians. The final straw came on the 25,000 mile service when they told me the rear brake pads and rotors were 90% worn and rusted. AT 25,000 miles!!!. $350.00. The dealer did repair them on warrenty but only after I threatened to get a second opinion. Hmmmm.
Favorite Features
Style, interior quality and base-level features.
Suggested Improvements
More storage space/compartments. Better CD compartment. Better cruise contol controls. Get rid of the automatic locking tail gate.
