I have had my 2005 Passat TDI for a little over a year now. I absolutely love it! Not only does it provide a comfortable ride and good looks, it gets awesome fuel mileage. I do a lot of driving and I fill the tank on average about every two weeks. Also, it is very roomy and has lots of trunk space.The shiftable automatic transmission is nice too. It is a great car to have.
The thing I like most about my car is probably the fuel mileage with the diesel.The diesel engine is very quiet and not nearly as smelly as some of the older models.It is very fun to drive. Also, I like the Volkswagen dealership.They are the nicest, most helpful people you would ever want to meet.
The center console could be better. It is small and doesn't have a lot of room for storage. Also, mine started to peel in the back and I had to have it replaced. And, the glovebox is barely deep enough for the manual to fit into.
