      Hi gang, well my old toyota has bit the ghost . I'll be in the market for another used car. I've had my eye on some 2015-17 jettas and possibly passat too. In the past we had a 2007 passat wagon, it was fun to drive with the 2.0t, but it drank oil like a fish!
      I wanted to know how the newer 1.8t model engines are? are they more reliable than the 2.0's? still drink oil? any issues with these model year cars?
      i like the jetta for their size (from what i've heard). looking for a roomy back seat.
      has VW seemed to have improved over Electrical gremlins?
      any info would be great. Will have to find a car in the next coming week! yikes!
      thanks
      fab

      I would read up/post in the model specific section for that information. This section moves slow.
