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


This wagon is fun to drive, looks great
is well designed and built. No
problems except for an a/c vent that
makes a thump sound when it opens.
This is to be fixed.

This VW is very similar to the Audi A6
and is priced much less. For sure,
this is a car that must be evaluated
before you buy another if you are in
the market for a wagon.

Best Features

Layout of instruments...all except for the clock...in the middle of the speedo cluster. The trip computer is full of info and all buttons and controls are easy access. Excellent overall.

Worst Features

Move the clock to be more visible. The power band is soft between 2400 and 2900 which starts to slug a bit just before the 3200+ Rpm kicks in. I think the transmission could have been geared differently for this engine. Small issue, but noticeable.
