1993 Volkswagen Passat GLX V6 4dr Wagon


I bought my 1993 Volkswagen Passat with 76,000 miles on it. The previous owner had a dispute with a local repair shop who toasted the old engine by draining oil during an oil change and forgetting to add oil again and driving vehicle, which screwed up the engine. So 30,000 miles ago a brand new engine was put in. The car runs well, operates smoothly, and is great on highway trips. I had to recently replace the electric ignition switch and distributor ($625 total, parts/labor) so repairs can be costly. The overall quality is nice!

Best Features

The zippy five speed and good horsepower. The car runs smoothly and can turn on a dime, even though it is a wagon.

Worst Features

Two words, cup holders! Also, the sunroof does not work on mine, I sealed it because of leaks and a failed motor.
