1991 Volkswagen Passat L Estate 1.8 petrol from UK and Ireland
Very sound, sensible motoring with ample room for a family of 5
At around 110,000 the clutch had to be replaced. Rear wheel bearings went at around this mileage. Brake master cylinder went at around 120,000 plus other components on the braking system around the same time.
Despite these items, the car is solid & very reliable. There are very few problems & for such a large vehicle the fuel economy is not bad - average about 35mpg. I will probably keep it for a long time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
