1995 Volkswagen Passat GLX V6 4dr Sedan


I bought my 95 Passat 1 year old with
20K miles. At 43280 the engine had a
compression problem, and was completely
rebuilt by the dealer under an extended
warranty. At 92114 the intermediary oil
shaft broke and as a result the valves
were bent and the dealer thought it
would be cheaper to put in a rebuilt
engine than try to fix it. They wanted
$5700 to fix a car that was worth maybe
$7000. Less than 4 weeks earlier I had
paid the same dealer $1300 for a 90K
service and various repairs (front
window, serpentine belt, coolant flush,
etc). My wife's Jetta's engine is being
replaced (warranty) right now at 49K
miles. These are all city/hwy miles (ie.
no off roading, abuse, etc)
