2004 Volkswagen Passat GLS TDI Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5A)

Review

The TDI (diesel) was hard to find, but worth the effort. Great gas mileage...up to 44mpg w/o air conditioning running. The acceleration and handling are simply great!! Watch the horn...have to punch it in just the right spot (a small spot) - not a plus when you need it in an emergency. Interior finish is perfect. The diesel runs very roughly in the 20-30 mph speed after startup. It smooths out after it warms up...hope this can be adjusted on first trip back for service. Generous trunk space, full-size spare tire, and plenty of leg room in the back seat. So far, love the car!!

Favorite Features

Great gas mileage at a price per gallon for diesel fuel at least .20 cheaper per gallon than regular 87 grade.

Suggested Improvements

If the horn issue is typical to other VWs, this is an area of great concern from a safety perspective. The first time I needed the horn, I couldn't find the "sweet spot" that made it work. BAD!!!
