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

Review

I spent 6 months car shopping and researching, and test drove over 12 vehicles. The Passat stood out from the pack. It has a head-turning exterior, a sumptuous, well-appointed interior, superb German engineering, and is a fantastic bargain when you consider how many features it has (in GLX model) that competitors charge extra for. This car is fun to drive, and exciting to own.

Favorite Features

Favorite features: night-time instrumentation; fantastic Monsoon sound system; leather/wood interior; folding key; trunk is absolutely huge; every switch lights up at night; ergonomics are first-rate; Climatronic heat/ac system; heated seats, telescoping steering wheel with radio controls...

Suggested Improvements

OK, so it's not PERFECT. There is very little storage space in the cabin; there is a slight hesitation when you first step on the gas from a dead stop. However, these are minor concerns. This is a fantastic automobile that will make you feel like you spent a million bucks.
