    Thread: Few questions about a 1990 Passat. Very low mileage?

      Im looking at buying a 1990 Passat and it's a few states over so I want to learn about it before seeing it. It has very low miles. About 50,000.
      Do these odometers reset at 300,000 like the Mk3 jetta/golf?
      Owner has stated that it has sat for the last 4 years. It looks nice in pictures but I'm suspicious of the mileage. Im not new to vw (have owned more than I can count) but have never owned a Passat. Thank you

      I highly doubt a Passat from 1990 only has 50k miles. I can't say about the odometer, but yea, 50K just screams bull poop.
