1997 Volkswagen Passat GLX V6 4dr Sedan


This is the second VW product I have
owned and it has lived up to every
expectation I have. I was surprised
when the right front wheel bearing went
out at 50K, but that was easily
replaced. A quick V6 that gets 25 mpg,
an easy to read dashboard, comfortable
riding car. We even took the family
vacation with this car, a very large
trunk and the room in the back seat is
enough the kids can't kick the front
seats. I wouldn't tell anyone to stay
away. One more thing, I was rear ended
and only the bumper cover was replaced
on my car, the other car sustained much
more damage. I feel very safe in this

Best Features

The shifting is easy and powerful and the car handles very well. Also enjoy how much cabin and trunk space in this car.

Worst Features

Add a glove box and some better drink holders. One touch on the power sunroof would be nice as well.
