2005 Volkswagen Passat GLX Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5A)
I purchased a new 2005 Passat GLX (V6 Auto) in Sept '05. The comfort of this car is awesome. I really like the car but the gas mileage stinks! I get anywhere from 13-15 mpg in the city and 17-19 mpg on the highway. The dealership states the car is OK....all checks out OK...sure, its not them buying premium gasoline and its a far cry from the "EPA avg. of 19 and 26" which is used in their sales speech! With this gas consumption, I should have bought a Tourag...then I could not complain. Most likely I will be getting rid of the car in the near future simply because of the gas mileage.
The heated seats, leather, and comfort of the seats.
Advertise the true gas mileage and don't lie to the public!
