expensive repairs, but a fun car
By bullrunner on


1995 Volkswagen Passat GLX V6 4dr Sedan


owned the car for eight years; driven
130000+km; I absolutely love the car;
however, every time I take it to the
dealers for maintenance, it's costing
me an arm and a leg. I have
experienced a worn wheel bearing, oil
filter seal leak, ignition firing
system replacement, etc. Contrary to
what other reviewers have claimed, I
don't have much electrical problems.
Anyways, this car corners like it's on
rails, especially if you fix the "toe"
to all 4 wheels. This car is not very
suitable for cold weather. The door,
its windows, and the lock freeze. It's
very important not to wash the car
during winter.

Best Features

Features are just features. One grows out of fancy options. The best thing is the drivetrain, extremely responsive, and highway acceleration is tremendously powerful.

Worst Features

lowering of cost repairs. If the car breaks down with major problem, I'd be in a world of pain.
