02 Volkswagen Passat review.

My car has good gas mileage, ac, and radio. I have problems with an evap leak and have had to replace brake fluid and shock plugs but the car was used when I got it. Other than that my only complaint is manual lights. It has good turbo engine and great visibility. I generally feel very safe in the car.

It can go fast. It is durable. It is gray. And has been worked on.

I like my car because it has all the bells and whistles. It has a/c, power windows/locks, heated leather seats and a moonroof. I like that is has the "4motion" transmission. It is a strong car with heat gas mileage. My only complaint is that it has a sealed transmission and its expensive to maintain.

2002 VW Passat owner review.

Started off as a great car but right not I am having issues with the engine. It is a foreign car so it is more expensive to fix. Pretty sure it is the engine mounts that need to be replaced. Also all the flights need to be changed and when I turn on the heater I can smell exhaust fumes.
