Oh no. That's not it at all. I started out with two, only now, thanks to this thread, my heart is set on "The Mystery Mobile", and I'm afraid nothing else is going to do...

Re: Should I Buy A Passat?

You can never go wrong with this.



I know you are concerned about cost, doors, efficiency, etc... Are you not you going to be SINGLE also?


This will be a lot cheaper than strip clubs.

If you should decide to go this way, w/o the navigation and sunroof, you can get one for about 23k out the door. Just so you have a price point.

Yep. Was just looking at those. And then I found a 2009 Passat, Cobolt Blue with 47k on it for under 15k and my heart stopped...

Re: Should I Buy A Passat?

if you plan on working on it yourself, have fun - buy bandaids and all the special vw tools and brush up on your swearing. dumb crap breaks on them routinely - really only argument i have. (i.e. ac compressor at 10k miles, alternator at 25k, both FWD cv axles by 40k...total bs IMO. dad had one when i was in high school, i hated that car after about 2 years.).

I know. Therein lies the drama. People love them...or they hate them. They are "very reliable" or "they suck". Color me confused...still...
