2004 Volkswagen Passat GLS 1.8T Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

Unfortunately the TDI model has not yet been recognized by Edmunds, so I am using the closest fit. I am comparing to my Audi A6, which is not fair, but considering it cost about $15K less the Passat does quite well. Very pleased with the Turbo, not only the mileage but the performance is great. I drove through a very heavy rain storm a couple of days ago, many cars sitting it out on the side of the road, but the Passat felt secure and handled quite well. Overall I highly recommend the TDI, if you can find one. Color selection has been limited, but I lucked out and got a Blue Silver with Black leather. A real beauty.

Favorite Features

Great mileage, very comfortable, cruises effortlessly and passes with authority.

Suggested Improvements

Front seats are comfortable, but readjusting when changing drivers is a chore. Several occasions of significant front & side window fogging. Perhaps I have not figured out the right combination of ventilation controls. Rear mats have holes but no fasteners to hold them down.
