2005 Volkswagen Passat GLX 4Motion AWD 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is my 2nd Passat; I had an 03 as well and both were purchased new. I've never had any issues with either of them. The 1st had 97K on it when I sold it, my current has 80K. I'm considering waiting for the new Passat CC to come out. I prefer German cars over Japanese.


Best Features

Fit and finish; fun to drive; AWD is great in Wisconsin snow!

2005 Volkswagen Passat GLX 4Motion AWD 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I've owned a lot of Audi's. every bit as good although less stylish. Fun to drive, but a gas hog (so far - 9-12 mpg around town), hopefully will improve with time and break-in. No problems so far except cannot get driver seat memory to work.


Best Features

Clean, functional german interior. "Ka-thunk" when door closes, tight suspension and great handling for a wagon, great fit & finish and superior cabin materials.


Worst Features

Gas hog, by reputation has poor repair / reliability history. Poor sales experience.

Review

Wow, this vehicle is great! What a difference from my soccer mom minivan. It is very responsiive, very comfortable, and very fast. This is quite a change UP.


Best Features

All of them.


Worst Features

More storage room for "stuff." I need room for kleenex, chapstick, a pad of paper, a few pens and my purse. I am learning to live without all that "stuff." Which is not a bad thing!

Review

I bought my car a few months ago and I think its the best investment I have ever made! This car is so easy to handle, has great power, comfortable, especially on long trips, great gas miles, and very good looking! Also very roomy inside. I love all the features. VW did a great job on this one! I love my car!


Worst Features

none!

Review

This is a well mannered wonderfully smooth vehicle with a gorgeous interior, especially all lit for night driving. Underpowered in summer driving with the A/C on. Smoothest car that I owned, but needs more HP and handling. Winter all wheel drive performance was excellent once I ditched the stock tires.


Best Features

The smooth ride


Worst Features

More HP! Bi-Xenon headlights for the price are a must.
