1996 Volkswagen Passat GLX V6 4dr Wagon


Since buying our Passat GLX wagon in early-2004, we've had nothing but problems. The front doors don't close in the winter, the driver's door won't open at all, the transmission skips, the check engine light is ALWAYS on, the temperature light stays on through the summer months, it leaks oil...I'll stop there. This is a GREAT looking car with good gas mileage, but I will never buy another Passat wagon.

Best Features

Look, gas mileage, power

Worst Features

Glove box, more comfortable seats, better door mechanisms. I would not recommend this vehicle to anyone.
