2005 Volkswagen Passat GLS 1.8T Fwd 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Overall, I've had a great experience (short, so far) with my Passat. It's extremely fun to drive and gets pretty good gas mileage. At 9,000 miles, it hasn't visted the shop yet, although the engine seems to be slightly noisy and has a light rattle.

Best Features

The greatest feature that is superior to every sedan I have EVER seen is the size of the trunk. It is HUGE! It easily fits four golf bags, and even five (with some careful manuevering)- believe me, I do it often. Other great features include the one-touch sunroof, backlight display, and sound system.

Worst Features

The clock is only visible to the driver, and there are hardly any places to put your things (I use the ashtray to hold things - its that bad). This is trully a driver's car, not very comfortable for passengers on long rides.
