Nice Car, but

2003 Volkswagen Passat GL Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Still a nice car after 2 yrs and 40,000 miles. Car brought in for 40,000 mile service, rear break pads were worn and I was shocked to find pads and rotors need to be replaced as same time. I'm used to honda & toyota & subaru where the front breaks do the work (and need service) and the rear breaks can be pretty much ignored.

Best Features

Fun, safe and sure footed.

Worst Features

Let buyers know that rear breaks will only last 40,000 and that you have to have the rotors replaced with the pads.
