My wife and I fight over who drives

2004 Volkswagen Passat GLS 1.8T Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


I've had several Acura sedans and a VW GTI but none of them compare to the Passat Wagon. I got it after the GTI was totaled and never expected it to have such spirited performance. I have to admit I've driven it over 125 mph and it felt like a sports car. It was absolutely smooth and solid. I've never been so impressed with a car. My wife loves it. Our other car is a late model Toyota Land Cruiser, which is nice, but for driving, nothing beats the Passat. It's roomy, smooth and fast. It's the only car I've driven where I don't feel exhausted after 400 mile trips. It has had a few problems, thankfully all covered by waranty.
