Quite Happy with my TDI
By atltdi on
Vehicle2004 Volkswagen Passat GLS TDI Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5A)
ReviewI've had my TDI Wagon since May. I
previously had a 2001.5 1.8T 5 speed.
Although I loved the efficiency
of the engine of my old car,the low end
torque of the 1.8T was simply not
strong enough to handle extreme
driveways and hills in and around
Atlanta. The diesel is a completely
different story altogether. It comes
off of the line quickly...so much so
that the tires will squeal if punched
too quickly.... The hills and steep
driveways are no longer a problem from
standing stops. Atl to DC on one tank
of fuel. I love it.
Best FeaturesEngine, fuel mileage handling are the best. Safety features & solid build quality are tops
Worst FeaturesThe monsoon radio in my old wagon was better. I wish it came with the xenon headlamps. The rear wiper should have a variable delay like the front wipers. Generally, I love the car. I'll always have a VW
