I don’t know enough about these cars to know how good a deal this is. I’m used to cars like my wife’s Toyota Echo. The thing has nearly 350k miles on it, but the transmission is finally slipping so it’s gotta go. But it’s been a really good car for us.
With 115k miles, how much life should this Passat still have in it? Are their V6 motors trusty for a lot more miles? How about their 4Motion system? I’d love to get her in an all wheel drive car, but I’ve got no interest in it if it’s just going to be a nightmare/money pit.
