2002 Volkswagen Passat Sedan GLS 1.8T 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

When we went shopping for a car, we were looking for a car with personality. We looked at the Accord, Camry, the A4, and the Passat. The Accord and the Camry were quickly dismissed for being so passion-less. Tough call between the Passat and A4, but we took the Passat and pocketed some extra cash. We continue to love the looks and ride of this vehicle after a month of use. Great car!!!

2002 Volkswagen Passat Sedan GLX 4Motion AWD 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I've driven many cars over the last 40 years including BMWs and Volvos. The Volkswagen Passat GLX V6 4Motion is the best car I've ever driven extensively. The 4Motion adds substantially to the ride, stability and handling of the car. It corners better than full blown sports race cars of 25 years ago. At 80 miles an hour it is also the quietest car I've ever had. Seat configuration and support is so good that an eight or nine hour drive is comfortably doable. The additional winter capability of the all wheel drive is icing on the cake.


Best Features

4Motion.


Worst Features

Include a compass in the standard instrumentation.

2002 Volkswagen Passat Sedan GLX 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This car is a great example of a combination between safety, reliability, and sportiness. The price tag is a little heavy but this is better than anything Japan or Detroit could dish out.


Best Features

The auto a/c and Tiptronic transmission re the best parts of this car. Not to mention the power evrything standard.


Worst Features

Could we make the all wheel drive a little more affordable so I could buy it?
