Gotta love the VR6
By Rick in Texas on


1997 Volkswagen Passat GLX V6 4dr Sedan


I bought this car in June of 2001. It
only had 15,000 miles on it and it
still smelt new! I love it, power is
very impressive with the help of a K&M
Supercharged Airfilter (which was
tough putting in).

I have had ZERO problems with it
except for the ABS light that has come
on about 5 times for a few minutes
then goes off.

Very quick for what it is and on my
last trip (365 miles) I got 26.6 miles
to the gallon. In town I normally
just get around 18 because I do drive
it a bit hard.

Wish I had the electric seats because
there are way to many adjustments when
someone else drives it.

Love it!
