2004 Volkswagen Passat GLX Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.8L 6cyl 5A)


Only had the car for one week now, but
WOW! Got it for my wife (30th
birthday gift) and we couldn't be more
pleased. Great ride, great features,
and that famous VW fit & finish. For
a "mommamobile" it doesn't get any
better than this, and I find myself
envious of her ride! It's simply the
most classy, well-refined, and user-
friendly wagon for under $40k.
Looking forward to many years of
happiness in owning this vehicle. We
hope the reliabilty is better than
what we've been reading about,
however. On the upside, it can't be
any worse than the horrendous car she
previously had, a 1999 Pontiac Grand-
Am GT. GM should have paid ME to take
delivery of THAT car. Go for the VW
wagon, y'all.

Best Features

Comfy, supportive seats, great steering feel, no discernable torque steer, plenty of space for the average size family, and FIT & FINISH. Onstar is a nice safety feature, too. For a wagon, this is a truly outstanding looking vehicle, and oh yeah: don't forget the FIT & FINISH!!!

Worst Features

Xenon headlights should be an option (or included) at this price point, tilt/telescoping should be power to match the seats, dual-zone cc should be included or optional. These desires, however, are just that - desires. This car is perfectly functional as is, executed beautifully. Kudos to VW!
