2003 Volkswagen Passat GL Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

Very happy with my purchase overall. Unfortuately, one wheel was unbalanced by 2.5 oz. when I drove it off the lot, but did not notice until I was on the interstate. Initial gas mileage is not quite as good as expected, perhaps more time will tell. Also was extremely difficult to find as a 5-speed manual, but I eventually got what I wanted after waiting till 2003 models. Excellent and responsive engine and tight suspension, with the cargo room I was looking for without buying an SUV or minivan.

Favorite Features

Its all too much to list a definitive favorite.

Suggested Improvements

Engine is a bit sluggish at low RPM. Trunk latch is not very convenient, since you only have so much time to open it after toggling the interior switch or pressing the key button.
