2003 Volkswagen Passat GLS 1.8T 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


We love our Wagon. It's a great value
with a ton of safety and standard
features for less than $25K. The 1.8t
has plenty of pull through most the
gears-especially while using the
tiptronic feature (Then you can add a
chip for even more power). There's
plenty of room for a couple who are
just starting a family. The perfect car
for those of us who don't want a
minivan nor an SUV.

Best Features

Got to say it's the engine. There's lots of torque for accelerating and passing. A chip adds about 80lb-ft more. Also have to say we love the look of the car. Nice lines from front to back. It also has a neat little trip computer with real time mpg.

Worst Features

The only complaint I have so far is the turbo lag with the automatic trans. It comes with the territory though.
