2005 Volkswagen Passat GLS 1.8T Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

This wagon is a blast to drive - it gets 4-cylinder gas mileage when you want it and has turbo power when you need it. It has lots of cargo space and comfortable seating for 5 passengers.

Favorite Features

Good gas mileage, smooth & quiet ride

Suggested Improvements

The 1.8T engine is prone to sludge problems, so make sure you change the oil every 5,000 miles - use only VW-approved synthetic oil and the VW OE filter or VW isn't likely to honor the engine warranty if you have problems.
