1995 Volkswagen Passat GLX V6 4dr Sedan


This was my first new car purchase.
I've always wanted a VW. In 1995 this
car offered the most features for the
money of any comparable vehicle, bar
none. I've had much pleasure driving it
and will continue to do so indefinitely,
especially considering its ridiculously
low resale value.

BTW: What's with everyone dogging the
cup holders? (Even Consumer Reports
didn't like them in 1995.) You guys are
crazy. The cup holders are one of its
best features. They're perfectly
positioned and can hold a great range of
sizes and shapes, including a regular
sized coffee mug if you fold the neck
brace down and use only the nonslip base.

Best Features

Solid feel, superb paint quality (still shines like new), comfortable seats (even on long trips), cup holders, multi-function computer, German engineering

Worst Features

More power (lethargic starting out in 1st with passengers and A/C on)
