Can't go wrong with this car!!

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


This car walks talks and acts like one
that is much more expensive. From the
cool night-time lighting to all the
thoughful touches, to the cool trip
computer, to the steering wheel
controls. Did I mention the leather -
not like the cheap hides on a
nissan/infiniti. This car is an Audi
without the dual zone climate control
and four rings. 1.8 w/ five speed is
great, still breaking in but it can
move the car with some authority,
always asked if its a 6 cyl.

Best Features

Trip computer - outside temp. and miles to empty; solid build quality. If blindfolded would think you were in a mercedes. Projector headlights and foglights, saftey equipment, abs, esp, edl, asr, six airbags, latch.

Worst Features

Wagon liftgate release. Must either toggle switch on driver door or on key fob or use key itself before liftgate will open. When unlock all doors, should be able to open liftgate as well. Good news is that it opens high enough that a 6 footer wont bang head on it.
