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


I use my Passat just like my neighbors use their SUV's. I tow my dirt bikes, take it off-road to my favorite camping/fishing spots. Snow is not a problem in the winter with the ESP and it has more room than most midsize SUV's. I tinted my windows for the SUV look and average 28 mpg on the highway.

Best Features

Monsoon Stereo, roomy front and rear passenger space, power outlet for the DVD and the turbo power and fuel efficiency.

Worst Features

In hindsight I should have opted for the Diesel...it gets almost 40 mpg.
