- Looks good.
- Expensive maintance!!! Everything breaks down with this car!!
My Passat has cost me more headaches and money than anything else! In fact, I'll probably be trading it in for a more dependable car; like I intended in having, like a HONDA! This car is at the dealership, I swear, like every other month. First, the electrical system went out. All the interior lights went out. Of course, VW of America didn't help out with the cost with any of these repairs and it wasn't under warranty. Then, the headlights have gone out at least 3 times since I've had the car. Then, the coolant sensor went out which cost well over $700, and most recent is the steering column has gone out! This new estimate is $2,000. I've spent over $2,000 in repairs, over 15 days without a car, and it only has 60,000 miles. I truely don't recommend this car to anyone not even my worst enemy. The only good thing about the car is that it looks good, and I get many complements on the apperance. If you are thinking of buying a VW do yourself a favor and buy the extended warranty and hope you have a good savings account for all the repairs to come! Anyone who says they never had problems with a VW either lied or was really lucky!
