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


My dad purchased this car in Feb. of 2009 on the same day that I got my 2003 Ranger. I've never been much for German cars, but I'm slowly starting to like them. I read all of the reviews that mention the sludge problem. They don't change their oil frequent enough. It should be changed every 3 months or 3000 miles and you will be good to go.

Best Features

Sound system, power when turbo kicks in, shifter is awesome

Worst Features

make it easier to change oil, solve the horrible torque steer when you jump on the gas in 1st or 2nd gear
