Great Car Except... 2 Things Drive me Crazy
By jax20 on


2003 Volkswagen Passat GLS 1.8T 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


I'm writing this review because I just got backed into.
And if the blasted horn were to work when the car is turned off it would not have happened.

What I want to ask you Mr. Hans Designor is why must the hatch lock everytime it is closed?
How is this a safety feature?
And how in the world is it safe to be unable to use a horn when your car is turned off?

A paranoid hypocondriac grandmother could not design a more annoying electric locking system.

Best Features

The Monsoon sound system. Good traction. Turbo makes it sporty. Nice ride. Fun to drive.

Worst Features

A horn that works when the car is off. A hatch that does not lock everytime it is closed.
