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

Review

this car was great when i bought it but i thought the ride was a little soft. i also got used to the power rather quickly. so, i got a turbo chip and now it has 210 hp, 247 ft-lbs of torque, and it's much more fun to drive now. i probably need a larger exhaust to handle the extra pressure from the turbo. i also put on lowering springs, stiffer shocks, a rear anti-sway bar, and 18" Volk wheels. now it's super fun! no problems with the car that haven't been fixed quickly under warranty, and those were very few. great car, especially for the money!

Best Features

interior and exterior design, super-fun to drive, handling...

Worst Features

GLX options need to be available on the GLS. wiper blades aren't so great - mine always leave streaks (and yes, they're clean...). more options for suspension, wheels would be nice. USB or Firewire port in the stereo would be great for playing MP3's in the car!
