1995 Volkswagen Passat GL TDI 1.9i turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Great mpg, great size, great car
Wiper motor bearing worn out, burnt out motor @ 120,000.
One reverse light @ 88,000.
Interior worn, but probably would have done in any car due to very heavy use.
Power door lock broke on drivers door, but when you get used to opening the car with the passenger door this minor fault can be a great security deterrent.
As the above states, great car, no problems, just the normal parts: oil, fuel, and air filters, brake discs and pads, tyres, timing, fan and power steering belts, new coolant and wipers.
All this plus over 50+ mpg record is 75 mpg over 65 miles.
Added blue indicators to match the bodywork and 5 spoke alloy wheels.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
