2004 Volkswagen Passat GLX Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.8L 6cyl 5M)

Review

I've driven the VW for one year and I am unhappy with it. The dashboard instruments cannot be seen in the daylight! AC display panel is a joke, dark and almost illegible. The Monsoon radio on AM cannot be tuned in clearly. The dealer says: That's typical of VW radios! My car's gas mileage is quite low for a V6. I am averaging 13-15 mpg around town, 20-23 mpg on thehighway. Overall, consider a Honda or a Toyota for the same or less money.

Favorite Features

The VW is quiet on the road.

Suggested Improvements

Fix the dash lights (white, not blue) during daytime driving. Add a QUALITY radio!
