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

Review

This car walks talks and acts like one that is much more expensive. From the cool night-time lighting to all the thoughful touches, to the cool trip computer, to the steering wheel controls. Did I mention the leather - not like the cheap hides on a nissan/infiniti. This car is an Audi without the dual zone climate control and four rings. 1.8 w/ five speed is great, still breaking in but it can move the car with some authority, always asked if its a 6 cyl.

Favorite Features

Trip computer - outside temp. and miles to empty; solid build quality. If blindfolded would think you were in a mercedes. Projector headlights and foglights, saftey equipment, abs, esp, edl, asr, six airbags, latch.

Suggested Improvements

Wagon liftgate release. Must either toggle switch on driver door or on key fob or use key itself before liftgate will open. When unlock all doors, should be able to open liftgate as well. Good news is that it opens high enough that a 6 footer wont bang head on it.
