The in's and outs of ownership over one year.

2005 Volkswagen Passat GLX Wagon

Rack and pinion failure around 150k miles. Various issues involving abs communication with abs module. 2.8l 30 valve fairly reliable engine. Recall on seat warmers. 4 wheel drive system very touchy on snow during acceleration with traction control not enabled (traction control disabled by abs system issues).
