1996 Volkswagen Passat GLX V6 4dr Sedan


I received this car in my grandmother's will, and as she meticulously maintained it and kept it in excellent shape. I see no major problems in the car. It drives nicely, accelerates quickly, and handles like a car half its size. My only gripe is the door handle, it seems to act up every once and a while, leaving me fiddling with it for a bit to get it to work. As this is my second car, my first car was an Isuzu Rodeo, I am very pleased with it.

Best Features

The engine, handling, and good gas mileage (it get s around 20 mpg overall, but after getting 12- 13 mpg in my Rodeo it's a big step forward).

Worst Features

The door handles, cup holders, and headlight covers (they tend to fog up over time).
