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

Review

I've had my TDI Wagon since May. I previously had a 2001.5 1.8T 5 speed. Although I loved the efficiency of the engine of my old car,the low end torque of the 1.8T was simply not strong enough to handle extreme driveways and hills in and around Atlanta. The diesel is a completely different story altogether. It comes off of the line quickly...so much so that the tires will squeal if punched too quickly.... The hills and steep driveways are no longer a problem from standing stops. Atl to DC on one tank of fuel. I love it.

Favorite Features

Engine, fuel mileage handling are the best. Safety features & solid build quality are tops

Suggested Improvements

The monsoon radio in my old wagon was better. I wish it came with the xenon headlamps. The rear wiper should have a variable delay like the front wipers. Generally, I love the car. I'll always have a VW
