Very economical car, comfortable, a lot of space for passengers and for cargo when you flip the rear seats down. Very reliable and that is the reason I still owe it. The best car for road conditions in Bosnia, good performance, cheap maintenance.

Something is wrong with type of car and year of production. In 1995 in Bosnia still was war, so there no chances that's any car produced there. VW factory in Bosnia were shutdown at March 1992.

What are you talking about???

I didn't say my VW Passat is made in Bosnia-Hercegovina.

I've got imported this car from Germany manufacturer. And why is the matter who is the manufacturer. VW has to be the same quality, no matter where is coming from.

VW does not have the same quality. Cars built in Germany and other places (not mexico) were great cars.

However the years around 95 to 03-ish is when they're made in mexico and quality has been very bad for some time.

I'm sorry, I didn't know VW has cars made in Mexico, I've heard about old type of VW Beatles from mexico not for other VW cars.

I wonder how come they ignore that fact of bad quality cars coming from Mexico.

Seem like VW doesn't have that much pretension to South and North America as they do to Asia and European customers.

Summary:

German tiger tank with queen mary comfort

Faults:

Exhaust blown.

All belts changed on the engine.

Handle on drivers door becoming lose.

General Comments:

This is most comfortable car in its class. It has good engine with plenty of power and it is tough as tank.

Recently I had a accident in which some freak hit me with Renault 25 directly from oncoming track (headlight in headlight).

I was parked and his speed was 80KM/H.

Nobody was hurt in my car, but in Renault 25 driver was severely wounded and pinched down in twisted car. Engine in of Renault was in the cabin of the car, and front left wheel was under the drivers seat. After accident I started the car and moved it across road.

On my car there was a great amount of damage, but not even the windshield was broken, and if radiator and battery was not broken I could get to my house with it. After that I bought another. And my heart is always in that car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

Best Diesel Ever

Faults:

Everything was perfect all the time.

General Comments:

This is the car that isn't very expensive, but is very reliable and comfortable. I drive it every day and I have never felt uncomfortable. It's Air Condition does the job very good. It is fast car for a diesel vehicle.

I have already have some diesel cars, but this one is the best bargain for family vehicle. It is car wich can go over 1600 km with only one fuel retank.

If I would buy another car it would be Passat, only newer model, but also DIESEL.
