Passat Wagon -- no compromises
By dermeister on
Vehicle
2003 Volkswagen Passat GLX Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.8L 6cyl 5M)
Review
With a new baby on the way, I needed just a bit more room than my previous Passat 1.8T sedan. But I didn't want to compromise on performance, overall engineering, looks, or quality. I'm very happy with my '02 Passat Wagon/Variant. It has willing performance, good low-end torque from the V6, very stable handling at low and high speeds, and great room thanks to the practical square wagon design. I chose a the buttery smooth 5-speed manual, but the 5-speed tiptronic is equally nice and pleasing. The wagon back actually adds a considerable amount of room, and also adds more rear headroom than the sedan.
Favorite Features
Powerful and smooth V6, slick-shifting 5-speed manual, grippy brakes. Great interior with high-quality fittings, including real walnut wood.
Suggested Improvements
I would like to have a couple of other options available, including sport suspension and a supercharger.
