1990 Volkswagen Passat GL 4dr Wagon


This car is been the most unreliable
car. I bought it at 85k and put on 50k.
I have spent over $13k (not counting
gas and insurance) on it. It has
stranded us 4 times. Every time I fix
something expensive, I would think, now
it will be okay for a while. It is very
expen$ive to fix, and the same things
go wrong. The automatic transmission is
terrible and it has been replaced by VW
at 50k (before I owned it) and rebuilt
by VW at 110k while I owned it. The
transmission is so bad, there are no
used ones available. The fuel pump and
pre-pump have failed at least twice
each. The power windows are weak. I
could go on all night. Stay away from
this car!!!
