2005 Volkswagen Passat GLS TDI Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5A)

Review

Due to the current gasoline prices, I did not want to buy an SUV, but I needed cargo room, so a wagon seemed to be the smart choice. After extensive research, I settled on the Passat TDI. The TDI wagon is now hard to find, and I had to drive 250 miles to purchase one. This is by far the best automobile I have ever owned. The build quality, comfort, and ride are every bit as good as my in-laws BMW 525i. If you want an alternative to the gas-guzzling SUV's this is definitely a vehicle worth exploring. If you owned or knew someone who owned a VW diesel in the 1980's, you owe it to yourself to look at the new diesel technology. An absolutely fantastic vehicle!!!

Favorite Features

Front seat comfort is outstanding. Plenty of leg room for front and rear. Ride is excellent, with just the right amount of road feel. Controls are well-designed, intuitive, and easy to reach. Stereo is outstanding.

Suggested Improvements

More room for incidentals in the cabin (e.g., CD's, cell phones, etc.).
