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


My second GLX Wagon . Had an 01 to
trade in at 24000 miles. Overall I
like the styling better on the 03,
wish they had avoided the chrome trim
tacked on over and in the car, that in
my opinion cheapens the look esp on
the dash. The wheels are easier to
clean at least. Its a nice car to
drive with a good solid feel to it.
Needs more power though especially
considering the poor fuel economy.
Which is the worst thing about this
car .It has terrible fuel economy
considerably worse than my 01 which in
itself was alot worse than my prior
car a Saab 9000.
I feel a car this expensive and of
this quality should have decent fuel
economy. It does not!

Best Features

The fit, quality of finishand the style.

Worst Features

Fuel economy is pathetic this car should get 24-32 mpg it does not barely gets 18. Lose the chrome.
