The last Passat Post

Purchased December 23, 1999 - Mileage: 8
Mileage at trade-in: 249,515

It was a fun ride ...

KIRIN I is now a 2010 Suzuki SX4 AWD 4 DR hatchback - Mileage at purchase: 21,914
First Oil Change / Service will be at 22,500 (7500 mile intervals).

More information on the "new" car to come.


Its the right color....
Will miss the VW though.
The color was almost by chance. The right car at the right price at the right time. I would have gone with black, dark red or metallic copper as alternates.
The Passat has served you well. :=3

I'll miss seeing it though.
The one thing I WILL miss is the capacity of the Passat. It could carry a lot.
At least I won't have to haul my brother's furniture and stuff around anymore.

It's also not quite as fast (but that can be seen to ...)

What made you go Subi?
I went with the Suzuki because it's a reliable car in the size I wanted.
It has a decient amount of power, all wheel drive and enough room with the rear seat down to get me and possibly a friend to a con. Although it's not a big name in the US it has a good reputation. There's also a dealer reasonably close to me.
Farewell, Passat.
Greetings, SX4.
congatulations on the new used hatch back.  I hope that it will serve you well.
