Test Drove them ALL - VW Wins
By Herr Schmidt on

Vehicle

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

Review

This is the first new car my wife and I ever bought. As it is 'her' car, I had her test drive every possible car on the market, from GM's to BMW's. Family to sports cars. She said she wanted the VW Passat TDI. I went with her and took it for a drive. Roomy and handles like a sports car. Excellent brakes, excellent everything. Now have 100k on the car and not even a hint of anything wrong. We will keep this one until we can't drive any longer.....in about 20 years!!

Best Features

Lots of power on the highway, great fuel economy +45 miles/gallon and that's at 85 miles/hour on the 4-lane highway! (yes, the rest of traffic was doing the same). Excellent handling, gorgeous interior lights at night.

Worst Features

Move the arm rest forward about 3 inches and have it adjustable for different height of drivers. Power seats would have been a nice option in the TDI version.
