2004 Volkswagen Passat GLS TDI Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


A friend raved about his Jetta TDI, and I
drove it and was impressed. At first I thought
the Passat might be more car than I needed,
but I love the way it performs and it exudes
engineering savvy. Lots of details have
been carefully thought through.The
selectronic transmission allows it to be
shifted like a standard or driven as
conventional automatic. Way cool! The
moon roof is a nice feature and the trunk
space is phenomenal. I've owned the car for
two months and am still discovering nice
features. So far I can recommend only two
changes: lighted switches on the visor
mounted progammable remote control
buttons so you can see them at night .

Best Features

I love the dash layout, the sound system, the convenience options (like being able to close the moonroof outside the car, and the large trunk. The back seat also has an energy outlet (nice feature) and trunk is spacious and has storage compartments for first aid kits and a full size spare.

Worst Features

Better console, user customizable options for the remote locking mechanism, and an electronic compass would be useful. Light all switches, including those for remote garage door. Have cup holders for back seat passengers.
