Great car, lots of costs

Vehicle2002 Volkswagen Passat GLX 4Motion AWD 4dr Wagon (2.8L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewI am finally at the end of my lease with my Passat wagon. My car has been in the shop numerous times for various problems; i.e. electrical, engine problems, minor things like bulbs burning out and the brakes needed to be replaced at 25K miles! To add insult to injury, my local VW dealer has ONE certified repairman so many times I had to wait for up to 2 weeks to get my car into the shop. Bottom line is that I took a lot of time researching cars when making my decision and unfortunately VW did not live up to my expectations. This car is expensive all the way around; repairs, gas mileage, etc. Be cautious when purchasing this car.
Best FeaturesHeated seats! Seat comfort. Ease of using cruise control and stereo from the steering wheel. LOVE the sun visor that extends out to always block out the sun. The car body is pretty durable so door dings are non-existant (unless someone hits you pretty hard). Again, I say seat comfort.
Worst FeaturesGas mileage. Less expensive repair costs. Better reliability.
