Good Review for Great Car!

Vehicle

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

Review

This car is great. Exceptional handling, acceleration and design. 4motion system is great in all weather, especially in my town where salt is not used and the roads become solid ice and snow from December until late March. About 110k miles, full synthetic oil and the engine (not exaggerating) sounds new. Only problems (as with all cars) AC leaks because I neglected to turn it on enough and tiny beginning of rust on one fender, but will be covered by 12 year rust warranty. Other than that zero mechanical problems, which may surprise some. I don't baby the car at all, but stay on top of it very well (oil, filters, etc.). Honestly, take care of this machine and it will take care of you.

Favorite Features

Favorite features: very smooth V6, 4motion, auto climate control, Monsoon sound, Tiptronic (although manual would be nice), very warm heated seats (5 settings). This car is all around a great machine.

Suggested Improvements

Few improvements: a low setting for wipers would be nice (now only auto, med, high), better placement for climate control buttons, bigger fog lights (more effective), folding rear seats (not available in 4motion- electronics maybe?), 2.8 turbo? could be nice... Other than that, no complaints
