2002 Volkswagen Passat GLX 4dr Wagon (2.8L 6cyl 5M)


We bought this car after 911 primarily because we wanted to avoid airport hassles when traveling to Albuquerque and Ashland OR;ten to fourteen hour journeys by car. This car has more than filled the bill! Fast, comfortable and totally unstressed with loads of room for fishing rods, skis;you name it. At seven years it has had very few problems (CV boots, headlights) and still feels as good as the day I picked it up. Nothing in the new car market looks this good so I'll keep it 'till it falls apart; no sign of that yet. Only down side is fuel consumption-big torquey diesel engine would make the perfect car.

Best Features

solid feel,quiet,fast,heated seats.Still looks good.

Worst Features

better fuel economy,larger fuel tank. revert to standard headlights
