An awesome Volkswagen by cheetah993 on 09/14/2006. Trim: 1992 Volkswagen Passat GL, Owned 1 year.
Pros: this car is a blast to drive. The 4 cyl 16 V. DOHC has plenty of ponnies for this car. The car has a few things that you can do to trick it out and make it faster but i dont think that it needs it. The car has plenty of power. The interior is nice and the body lasts forever. The exauhst sounds nice as well. the handiling on this car is incredible for a sedan. Lots of room for the tall people out there.
Cons: The price for some of the parts if not all of them are a little extreme. But that is the price that you will pay for all german cars. You will always pay for the best. The automatic transmission seems to have alot of problems with it.
Overall review: Sure the car parts break after time, but most if not all of the things that others have listed going bad is normal wear and tear. If you like a nice fun economic and reliable car, then this is the one for you. If you dont want to out the time, effort, and money into a car, then this isnt the right car for you. It also helps if you get the bentley book on it and if you are a mechanic that knows how to fix a VW because most of the things that they do on the car is different from everyone else.

For established VW drivers only by Brian form Pittsburgh on 12/21/2003. Trim: 1992 Volkswagen Passat CL, Owned 1 year.
Pros: The car is a blast to drive(138k mi). Handles like it's on rails. For how big and heavy it is, it feels like you're driving a GTI. Lots of room, even the back seat. Dash is easy to read. The 2.0 16v (have one in my Jetta GLI) is just enough power for this car. Like I said, a blast to drive.
Cons: The ignition switch (behind the lock cylinder) will fail and you will need to replace it, no questions. Same with the distributer. You always need to fix something on this car, but mostly, it will be something minor. Parts CAN be expensive but can be found cheap online.
Overall review: Great car to drive. The reason why my reccomendation was a 5? I wouldn't recommend this car to someone who just wants to get in a car, get to where they want to go, and get back. This is a drivers car. Make sure you are mechanically inclined and know a good mechanic. This is my winter car and love driving it in the snow!

just german by milos on 09/10/2002. Trim: 1992 Volkswagen Passat GL, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: good on options, from the sunroof to the seatwarmers to the trunk space. If you like to soup up cars this is an adventure for all. Also the interior room is good and the handling is great with the right tires.
Cons: Garbage on the automatic. 5 speed is more reliable and more fun to drive. Temperature light won't turn off, belts don't last long, parts very expensive.
Overall review: overall its fun to drive but only buy if your a mechanic or if its on 5 speed
