Vehicle
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.
Favorite Features
Great drive train with comfortable seats and intuitive controls. VW Marketing did every W8 owner a favor by doing such a poor job making this sleeper!
Suggested Improvements
1. Owners Manual is the most poorly organized (and contradictory) I have ever experienced. 2. Pedals are not well-placed for all drivers. VW needs to take a leaf from its Audi group and make them adjustable. 3. Exterior mirrors generate a noticeable amount of wind noise.
