Very High Repair Costs by John from California on 12/28/2009. Trim: 1990 Volkswagen Passat GL, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: Fairly spacious car and carries a lot of stuff with the fold-down seats.
Cons: Frequent and expensive repair bills.
Overall review: This is definitely the worst car I've ever owned. Major repair bills every year. Completely unreliable and breaks down on a regular basis. Terrible and costly decision to buy this car.

Horrible horrible horrible by JP from NY on 12/01/2003. Trim: 1990 Volkswagen Passat GL, Owned 6 years.
Pros: When it worked it was great.
Cons: In the time I had the car I constantly had to replace expensive parts (the timing belt broke repeatedly, etc.) and for the last year I had the car (2001) it worked for about a total of four weeks. I took it to my mechanic and he couldn't fix it. I took it to VW and not even they could figure out what was wrong with it.
Overall review: This car is a money pit when it starts breaking down.
