got a 2000 passat wagon about six months ago. it's been one problem after another since i got it. first it was the crankcase seal, then it was the turbo, then the break lines, now there's a leak in the power steering system somewhere. thank jeebus one of my best friends is a volkswagen master tech or i would have driven the goddamned thing off of a fucking bridge.

If I had a dollar for everybody I know who's had a VW problem over the years, I'd probably have like 50 bucks tops but you get the idea.

 

My buddy works in a VW/Audi specific shop so I luckily get plenty of routine maintenance for beer, weed, whatever

so swerve a mk3 with 53,000 on the clock and then look for a mk2 with 140,000 on the clock for the same price? or am i better with a mk1? i really want something wee and german, most of all reliable over anything.

 

something tells me i'm pissin' in the wind though

iv had a mk3 jetta for over 7 years now. absolutly love it. one of my rear windows dont go down because of the regulator..cheap money tho. and iv replaced the tranny after about a year (it was my second car and i beat the shit out of it daily, still do) with a used one from a junkyard. its not stock at all really but i still have had no major issues. it is a vr6 tho and i dont care for the 2.0.. stick with the 6 cylinder and you will be happy.

 

edit: i have close to 170k on it. still smokes every non turboed honda around

I got love for MK1's and MK2's. MK3's had wicked electrical problems ... at least in North America.

If you're looking at a car you are considering buying just make sure you get an inspection done.

VWs are a lot like any other car, if you take care if them, they'll last a long time. unfortunately the passat i bought is a piece of shit and has been one problem after another because it was poorly maintained by the previous owners. pretty sure were just gonna buy something newer, let it sit and do the more serious repairs before getting rid of it.
