Thinking of buying one. Like the handling on test

I'm considering buying a 2003 Passat with 74K miles, for the price-point/budget. The engine looks clean, the interior & exterior are in pretty good shape for the year, no visible rust. Gonna have a mechanic look at it tomorrow. I've read about sludge & maintenance cost

Very fun car to drive, just needs a new battery.

Clean title, clean car, rarely drove the car, bought as second car and never really had time to drive it. Needs a new battery. Car starts up everytime with new battery.

Disappointed in the issues Im having with the car. several recalls for my year of car. Im 5'9" and its hard to get in and out of the car. too low to the ground.
