1997 Volkswagen Passat GLX V6 4dr Sedan


I bought this car about a year ago, and have really enjoyed driving. Auto trans can shift hard occasionally, had some problems with the ABS & Check Engine lights coming on - but that could be because my mechanic couldn't figure it out - I never found any performance problems when these lights were on. Overall its a great car, very comfortable, plenty of power. My only complaint is the lousy gas mileage - I have never gotten the claimed MPG.

Best Features

Comfort, power

Worst Features

No glovebox - what genius thought that was something reasonable to do without?
