I enjoy the comfort, style and the reliability.

2000 Volkswagen Passat GLS

My passat is a very comfortable car to ride in and to drive. It is reliable and built well. It gets great gas mileage on highways and in town driving. The downfalls of owning and driving a volkswagen is that the parts are a little expensive and that not very many mechanics work or specialize on them so the shop rates are a bit higher. The engine compartment is small and it makes working on them quite a bit more difficult as well.

Good little get around car

2000 Volkswagen Passat GLS

Vehicle performs well, is very reliable. Gas mileage has is not as good due to age. The car looks nice, handles well and has great acceleration for a car that is roughly 20 years in age. Would definitely buy a newer passat given the chance. Also the tech features on the car are significantly advanced for its manufacturer year.

My Volkswagen is pretty cool.

2000 Volkswagen Passat GLS

Great ride - reliable, good miles, great to carry the dog. Needs brakes and to replace the motor mounts but otherwise this is my favorite vehicle. While this is a 20 year old vehicle, the car handles almost as good as the 1999 passat that I recently got rid of, but this car has better tires.

5 Speed Volkswagen Passat

2000 Volkswagen Passat GLS

The Passat is a really nice car. Personally, I can't drive an automatic transmission, but my boyfriend drives it for me, and it's a really nice ride. It can be tricky when things go wrong mechanically, because Volkswagen is really weird in general. I like the sunroof.

2000 VW passat is it worth it?

2000 Volkswagen Passat GLS

Starter went out, relay switch went out and there is no electrical power inside the vehicle. Also for some reason it is a gas hog. Drives okay in the snow it is front wheel drive which I guess helps. I have had my car in the shop at least three times this year.
