So many minor problems. Ranging from
malfunctioning electronic displays to
car not starting. It has caused
nothing but headaches and worries about
what is going to happen next?

Style and fun to drive.

2002 Volkswagen Passat Sedan GLX 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Purchased GLX v6 in Nov O2. Treated
very well by Dealer, Ernie Von
Shledhorn Menonomine Falls Wi. (ask for
Fritz great guy to work with) Great car
so far, have heard there are some
electrical problems, but approx 4k into
this car not a single issue. Car has
been a joy in every way. Love it's
quality, style,power and road feel. If
this keeps up, VW will see us again.


Best Features

Exterior/Interior/Handling/European Luxury Car Feel, Outstanding power from the V6


Worst Features

Fuel ecomony. Actually perfer the dial heat/ac controls, makes it easier to adjust temp without taking eye off of road to figure out which button you want. Automatic headlights on a car in this price range. My F150 has them!

2002 Volkswagen Passat Sedan GLX 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Purchased GLX Sedan 18 months ago, and
put on 29K miles. Next month, my wife
gets one :o). The car handles great -
tight steering, nice pickup while it
runs quiet and smooth. The shifting is
smooth and shift throw short. I have
made many trips to the home deport with
this car and have fit stacks of 8' 2x4s
and 2x6s in it with the rear seat
folded down. Power seats are nice
too. Build is solid. This car does 100
mph in 3rd gear. It does everything I
could want it to do..


Best Features

Smooth engine and great handling. Nice to take the on/off ramps at 2x "recommended" speed. Nice surprise is the rain-sensor wipers - never thought that would be a feature I would like, but they work great. No more futzing around with wiper speeds.


Worst Features

Better headlamps - dealer has replaced bulbs 2x already.
