I have owned four VW Jetta's since 1997 and in 2005 I decided I needed something with a little more room and AWD. I looked at the VW Passat and fell in love. The '05 Passat 4Motion handles and feels a lot like an Audi A4 with a much lower sticker price.
Dash lights at night, moonroof, heated seats and mirrors, 1.8T engine, and 4Motion.
Needs a 6 Disc in Dash CD Changer instead of cassette player, needs at least two accessory plugs in the front instead of one and more storage in the arm rest area.
