Passat wagon: beyond its time but past its prime.

I love the features of my car, it has a winter weather package and it is way before its time. Everyone thinks it is newer than a 2001, the body style is not too outdated. I do not like that it is so expensive to repair, and there are a number of issues with this particular model and year. The window motors have given out on 2 of the windows, and the a/c is broken. Combined with the black leather interior I cook in the summer. But the heated seats in the winter are killer!

2001 Volkswagen Passat 2001 a reliable car.

This Volkswagen has been so good to my family and I. It is very reliable. We have taken it on many road trips over the years. It is sturdy so I am able to get around in heavy snow and ice in the winter. Also heated seats we are very thankful for. The ac works great for the summer and it has a sunroof that the kids love! Only problem is the key must be cheaply made because it has broken off the ring and the replacement is very expensive.

Taking care of my old car.

It is a nice car to drive. I take care of it the best I can, and it has lasted a long time even though it is a really old car with a lot of miles on it (over 300, 000). In the past 5 years the number of repairs have steadily increased, but that is because the car is getting old. At some point I should probably get a new car, but I will keep driving this one as long as it stays reliable.
