2005 Volkswagen Passat GL TDI Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5A)

Review

No sacrificing quality, comfort or safety in the pursuit of lowering fuel costs. Even the base GL is fairly nicely appointed including above average sound system. Handling is fun, acceleration is astonishing given the 40 mpg highway and 35 mpg combined. This car's body is solid. Judging from forums, I have high expectations for longevity of the engine.

Favorite Features

High mileage, great acceleration, good handling, room for spouse, two large teens and two large labs. Unless we're driving the beach or towing the boat, the Suburban stays home. If I had the funds I'd buy another.

Suggested Improvements

Sorry to hear the '06 model coming in August will not offer the TDI. What timing; with record high gas prices not to exploit a marketing advnantage.
