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


I have 30,000 miles on my 03 and have
no major prolems. Handles very well in
the snow and the ride is very good on
rough roads. Gas milage on the highway
is 30 mpg or better. I have a manual
and get 20 mpg or better in city
driving. If you drive the car hard and
fast you will not get good gas mileage
something like 18/24. The Passat runs
better on premium, enough that I feel

Best Features

The Passat has all the safety features that the rich get in their cars. Side Curtain Air Bags standard and EPS for less than $500 is a steal.

Worst Features

Trunk should unlock with doors. It is very inconvenent to unlock the trunk everytime you need to open it.
