Why We Like It

Introduced in 1991 as Volkswagen’s entry into America’s mid-size automobile market, the Passat was an increasingly successful model, especially as the Deutschmark eased in value relative to the US dollar through the ‘90s. While the original grille-less body design was appreciated by some marque enthusiasts, less controversial frontal styling arrived by 1995, and while less distinctive cosmetically through the latter ‘90s, sales grew, and the 2002 restyling enhanced the Passat’s curb appeal. Four and six-cylinder engines, plus a turbodiesel, maintained the upmarket VW’s reputation for efficiency and economy, with startlingly good performance and trim levels that included the GLS, GLX, and an all-wheel drive 4Motion model.

As related by the seller, it drives like new and the automatic transmission shifts smoothly, while the nice, tight suspension delivers great handling. The sellers advise that they have always obtained “on-time” oil changes with synthetic oil, and the brakes, tires, and battery were recently replaced. Never having suffered from smokers or pets, this primo Passat looks great with the green paint in very good shape and without fading, complemented by a similarly nice interior without any rips, tears, or stains. Offered with a clean title, current smog inspection, and current registration, this Passat is fully loaded with the full suite of VW power features and options, such as power windows, locks, mirrors, and seats, plus cruise control, AM/FM CD stereo, A/C, and tilt wheel, with everything working properly. It’s powered by the always desirable V6 that’s mated to an automatic transmission for ease of operation.

Valuation Verdict

This Passat wagon is an extremely nice, low-mileage example of these very good road cars that’s been properly maintained and accompanied by service records – it’s a top-notch and versatile vehicle that would make any owner proud. It should make a fantastic first car for your kid, daily driver, or young family wagon, in our opinion. And, with its low, low asking price that’s within reach of a reasonable credit card limit, it should be considered $10k All Day for the great value it represents.
