2004 Volkswagen Passat W8 4Motion AWD 4dr Sedan (4.0L 8cyl 6M)

Review

Tasteful styling coupled, a torquey engine, well-spaced ratios in the 6-spd manual, and AWD makes for a potent combination that slips under the radar (literally). The AWD with ESP ensures that corners are taken with aplomb. Handling in rain and snow is incredible. Some may find the ride stiff. Steering is a bit overboosted, although adjustment takes place quickly. Very comfortable touring for two, and easily hauls 5 without disomcomfort.

Review

I considered Audi A6 4.2 (V8) or A6 2.7T-Sport (V6 twin turbo). But, I was having a hard time justifying the price once I'd compared them both with the V.W. Passat W8. They matched up quite nicely: power, performance, interior and looks. GET THE SPORT PKG.!!! You'll get 17" alloy wheels, a stiffer suspension and with the six speed you'll cut the 0-60 time from over 7 seconds with the tiptronic transmission to under 6 seconds with the six speed. 4Motion AWD with ESP traction control IS Audi Quattro. IT SIMPLY DOES NOT SLIP.

I am 16 years old and this is my first car and it is spectacular. Although i do not have much experience with cars i have yet to find a flaw in this beautiful machine. Go ahead and get yourself one of these babies and the chicks (or hunks) will be all over you!!!

Review

Back in the shop w/less than 2500 miles. This vehicle has a tendancy to give ghost codes (caution/warning lights for no reason) the only problem with that is the inconvenience of the drive too and wait at the garage. The controls/levers are a tad bit confusing but you'll get used to them. On the up side the W8 has great lines and is very attractive. The interior lighting is neat. You will enjoy driving the W8, it has good exceleration (not great, good) If you don't like paying high gas prices don't buy this car. It runs on 91 OR BETTER OCTAIN that is what is suggested by VW.

Review

in syracuse, I wont let my wife drive anythin unless it is awd. build quality is excellent, shifter is good, clutch is very vague, easy to stall, to assisted, car is reasonably quick, for a family sedan, but put 19: rims on it, tint the windows, and put a spoiler on it, and even the fast and furious kids are impressed. only real complaint is the soft rev limiter in 1st gear that starts shutting it down almost 800 rpm faster than in 2nd-6th, just as the car really starts coming on in 1st, you are into the rev limiter, then it pulls real strong to redline in every other gear.awaiting the snow, to see how it performs in a syracuse ny winter with blizzaks on it
