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

Review

We purchased this car new in 03 (03 Passat Wagon 5 MT, heated seats, monsoon sound), my wife drove it for 98,000 miles with minimal hassle. She replaced with an 08 Passat Sedan (6 MT not offered in 09). Car has been well maintained by dealer with mainly wear and tear items. Car is a blast to drive. Kind of a sleeper; five year old station wagon that can get up and move. You feel safe and sure footed in all weather and all road conditions. Mileage: I have been getting 26 to 27 in city driving (I do stomp on it a bit but coast steady when I can); I think on highway only trips it gets 32 or 33.

Favorite Features

Build, comfort, solidness, handling. Germans do it right, zoom.

Suggested Improvements

Bulbs are difficult to replace (fairly common in a new car)
