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

Review

Purchased new. Not driven hard except for an Audi Quattro Club weekend at Road America where it held its own at 110 mph plus. Several long trips were very comfortable. A very useful hauler of all kinds of stuff. Sound system: Excellent & I have lots of cassettes and CDs to play. I prefer the front end styling to the later chrome; understated, not glitzy. The engine is wonderful: strong, powerful, smooth and gets remarkably good mileage for an eight; 25 mpg plus at 65-70 mph. Major complaint: Car delivered with OnStar and salesman knew it was important. Two years later (and three years short of the new car warranty) VW canceled the service. VW's response to my complaint. Too bad.

Favorite Features

Engine; interior comfort and quality.

Suggested Improvements

Don't mislead buyers into thinking an accessory they pay for will be covered by warranty for the life of the warranty.
