Look high and low. Passat is best.

2002 Volkswagen Passat GLS 1.8T 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Pros: "Laser-track" drive; quiet cabin; rich interior; fine finish even in hidden areas; 48mo/50K warranty; VALUE compared to all below $34K! Toyota/Honda, look! Can't touch it!
Cons:"Turbo lag" takes getting used to.

Passat is IT! Study the $24-34K market. Only 325i is close... so keep that extra $10K! You'll get much the same for a price below sticker. Turbo lag? Just punch through it. You'll always turn to look when you park. And Monsoon is superb - Better than in our Lexus.

Best Features

Classic German look. Great stereo. Leather. Sunroof. Quiet but firm ride. SOLID feel.

Worst Features

Man - I can't think of any!
