I bought my 1990 Passat for my first car, and I don't regret it. Petunia May, (her name) is an awesome highway car, but it is hard to park in tight areas. Other than that, I love it. I had to do some break repairs to it which cost an arm and a leg, but to me that is wear and tear parts. They are going to need attention one time or another in any car you buy.
I bought my passat with 140,000 miles
on it and it was immaculate. It runs
great and nothing has gone wrong with
it yet. Great value. Front wheel drive
is great in snow and the car is
generally fun to drive with a fast yet
rock solid feel. Nice factory exhaust
tip and exhaust. Acceleration is a bit
slow, but that is expected for a car
of this size with 140 horsepower.
Super smooth ride. 110 mph feels as
smooth as 60 does. Gas mileage is
about 25 mpg. Overall, I'd reccomend
this car to anyone who wants a sporty
sedan with plenty of room to boot.
I just recently bought my passat and I
was very pleased when I found the car
for the amount of money they were

I don't know of any places close by
where I can take my car.
Generally we like this car. Expensive
to repair - although once repaired it
is ok. Comfortable to drive, good
mileage, easy handling. We would not
buy another Passat because they are
simply too expensive. We know someone
who has a 1996 and they think it is a
