Love my Passat

by VW Owner from Baltimore, Maryland on Sat Dec 15 2007

Great car for the money, never had any major issues with the car. Handles well, and drives nice. Gas mileage is good, and style is still nice even 10 years later. Got this car at a good price and was worth every penny! Highly recommend!!
