1997 Volkswagen Passat GLX V6 4dr Sedan


I bought my 97 Passat with 15,000
miles, it now has 34,000. I have not
had one problem, other than bad factory
tires. This car works perfectly, and is
a good family, or commuter car. It is
very bouncy however, not meant for hard
cornering. It is quiet and luxury is
at hand. A good buy.

Best Features

Booming after removal of snorkel pipe. Luxury Seats

Worst Features

Vacuum driven locking system reminds the driver that he/she is driving a MkIII. Bouncy Bouncy. A real pig when A/C is operating. Sits too high.
