1997 Volkswagen Passat Comfortline 1.9 TDI 110 hp from Belgium
Drives great, but loves the garage too much!!
A lot! We have only had the car for 3 months and 11000 km, and look what went wrong (keep in mind that we bought the car from a very trustworthy source who never, ever had a problem with it) :
Turbo problems : cost 300 EUX.
Catalyst broke : cost 400 EUX.
Suspension problems : cost? (is being repaired as I write).
If I could be able to forget about the malfunctioning, then I would be obliged to call it a great car! It runs smooth, consumes nothing, has a lot of space and offers a lot of comfort and space. But here is where it all ends. All these troubles (and costs) are making me worried each time I switch on the engine. Every time I am really hoping it will end with the above mentioned troubles, but every time there is another problem ahead!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
