2000 Volkswagen Passat GLS 1.8T Turbo 4dr Wagon


Liked the car for the ability to transport 2 German Shepherds and humans comfortably. Plenty of room and very comfortable with the heated leather seats and pretty good gas mileage. The steering was pleasantly weighted and got heavier the faster the vehicle moved, giving a feeling of solidity and feeling well planted and secure. Cruised well. Unfortunately after a mere 8000 miles of ownership, the engine compartment combusted today necessitating a 911 call to extinguish the flames.

Best Features

Steering and comfortable driving with good visability outward. Decent gas mileage averaging 27 mpg on long hauls and 24 mixed driving.

Worst Features

Engine management systems, electronics, warning lights..All problematic and requiring attention during the short ownership experience.
