1997 Volkswagen Passat GLX V6 4dr Sedan


We bought this car with 74,000 miles and have had a few problems. 1) EGR valve. No idea what so ever how to fix it. 2) rear window doesn't work. It is a solid car with good MPG, but could be better. Tons of interior room and trunk space. Love the sunroof. The radio goes into SAFE mode every time the battery is disconnected though. Now it is permanently locked and only the dealer can open it. The exterior design is a definite draw back. Over all, it is a great family car.

Best Features

Sunroof, Over powerful A/C and heat. Heated leather seats, MFA.

Worst Features

Cheap interior and exterior design needs to be fixed, EGR DEFENITLY!!!!!!, locking system and radio SAFE mode.
