We Need More Diesels!
By Drew on


2005 Volkswagen Passat GLS TDI Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


I was on the fence over which car to buy, the Camry, Accord, or the Passat. Diesel engine is what sold me, and the wagon option. This car will eventually go to one of my kids when they go to college; I expect it to run that long! Great highway car, will “get-up-‘n-go” and not hurt you at the pump over driving it hard. Dealers are offering KILLER deals right now.

Best Features

Steering wheel controls. Multi- function display.

Worst Features

Cut down on wind-noise at highway speeds. Wipers are too slow for heavy down-pours. Offer the GLX-level trim for the TDIs!!!! Dealer service departments need a severe attitude adjustment!
