2003 Volkswagen Passat GLX 4Motion AWD 4dr Wagon (2.8L 6cyl 5A)


Mind you, I've only had it for three weeks, but I absolutely love this car. The only problem encountered thus far was the MIL light going on less than 24 hours after I bought it. Dealer said a hose came disconnected, and it was fixed in 15 minutes (hope next service call is that attentive!). Have driven it on snow and ice, and it handles like a dream. This car was MADE for states with terrain like Colorado. Snow, ice, mountain passes, dirt roads ... it can take it all. Clean it up, and you can take it on the town. Fiance says she feels like she's riding in a luxury automobile when she rides in it. For the price, I don't think you can come closer to driving perfection.

Best Features

Blue Anthracite exterior color (my favorite), black leather seats, instrumentation, climate control, heated seats, right passender side mirror tilts down when parallel parking, wood accents, roominess. Once I get the monster mats and cargo liner in, those will make the car that much better.

Worst Features

Cover for cup holder area. Brakes are a little funky, but I'm still getting used to them. Bringing it a bit higher off the ground would also help with driveways, etc.
