2004 Volkswagen Passat W8 4Motion AWD 4dr Wagon (4.0L 8cyl 5A)

Review

Purchased the car as my 7th Passat and 20th VW and was looking forward to a fast and sporty ride. The car is neither. Acceeleration lag from stand still is down right dangerous and then you jump like a frog! Gas mileage is horrendous ( 12 miles in City?). Back brakes warped & replaced at 20K. Tried to sell and realized one dealer offered all remaining 2003 W8's at $8K disocunt! W8ing for a better Audi or Lexus.

Favorite Features

Interior finish, seats are very comfortable

Suggested Improvements

Don't buy one, this car will be discontinued, and for a number of good reasons.
