Disappointed in my Passat

2005 Volkswagen Passat GL 1.8T Fwd 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


I cannot wait to squirrel away enough money to replace my car, with a non-VW model. I used to be that person that would defend VW and my car selection, but no more. After three recalls, multiple ignition coils going out, faulty electronics and the bottom panel of my car falling out on the freeway, I am done with this car. Not to mention it is a boring sedan. There is nothing outstanding about this car, aside from my repair bills.

Best Features

Decent gas mileage, features of the car were fun four years ago when I purchased the car. Ample cargo space.

Worst Features

How about build a car that doesn't cause me constant angst and headache? Volkswagens are affordable automobiles to purchase, but it is evident why. The cost to repair (of which the repairs are frequent) more than makes up for the difference.
