So far so good! My 2005 Volkswagen Passat GLX 4Motion has very nice handling for a non-sport wagon and is much quieter than my old Subaru Outback. It also has a smoother ride and a way higher level of interior comfort.
The front and rear air bags, comfortable seats, great handling in all weather, and good quality sound system.
Please - headlights that shut off when you turn off engine! Also add room up front to store CDs and things, who needs all those ashtrays?
