Worst car I've owned
By stan on
Vehicle1995 Volkswagen Passat GLX V6 4dr Sedan
ReviewI bought the car for $3500 in 2006 with 130k. Almost immediately the car began draining my bank account. Broken items in three years: Windows, door handles, ABS light, interior ceiling cloth, cup holders, defroster, wipers. These are the things that I could sort of fix on my own or do without. Then there was the ignition switch (twice) ignition relay, brakes (twice) and a coolant tube connection. All told, I spent more than $5000 in maintenance costs in 3 years of ownership. The car also sat in a shop for a total of about 10 weeks over that period while mechanics tried to fix it, waited for parts, tried again, etc. Finally the fuel pump went out, (~$500) and I traded it in.
Best FeaturesHeated seats. Nice engine power, acceleration and handling. Rides smooth.
Worst FeaturesYou kidding me? How about a car that is reliable? This thing left me stranded on three separate occasions.
