2000 Volkswagen Passat GLX 1.8Turbo from North America
I will buy another. It's fantastic
Air Intake Sensor went out.
Replaced some hoses at 95000 miles.
Driver's seat wearing at 100000 miles.
We have had this car since it was a baby (30 miles). It has been an excellent car. The best handling, pickup, smooth ride, no alignment issues, the wear on the outside and inside is fantastic (except for where I have torn the driver's seat) sliding in. The car looks like new on the outside, despite being kept outside in the desert sun. One of the best features is how quiet it is on the inside.
The only issues we have had had been replacing the air intake sensor (which happened right after an oil change funny thing). This issue ended up being covered by VW.
Otherwise, we are at 104,500 miles with no issues and we love this car!!!
The engine still sounds great, every now and then it vibrates a touch, but even my husband doesn't notice it because he hasn't driven it as much as me.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
