2004 Volkswagen Passat W8 4Motion AWD 4dr Wagon (4.0L 8cyl 6M)


A silky smooth cruiser with a
virtually silent W8 powerplant coupled
with the finest 6 speed stock
transmission I have ever driven (I
don't like automatics much anyway).
The clutch takes some getting used to,
but it only takes about 15 minutes in
traffic to become proficient. Once
you do, you'll likely understand why
most europeans prefer them over

Best Features

Utterly quiet ride and nimble handling. Driving with my wife this afternoon on a coarse road gliding along at 65 mph, we whispered to each other how much we enjoyed the car. Also love the W8 engine and 6 speed manual transmission with a tight and responsive suspension.

Worst Features

Navigation system.
