You know we owned a 1999 Passat GLS a couple of years ago and yea they are nice cars...man does VW suck in terms of reliability. Now I am a VW lover, I am a member of VWVortex and have owned 5 VWs over the years and every one of them has had issues. That is one thing I can say for the Maxima, change the oil and put gas in it and no issues at all. My 99 WE Golf has trim falling off the doors, power window regulators breaking, power locks breaking. It is a 2.slo so I don't have the coil pack issue of the 1.8t but man you would think VW could get it right one of these days. I wonder if I could get my wife to go back to the Passat and get a TDI.....
