Worst good ride

by from Oakland CA on August 8, 2017

The car drive's well initially but later check engine showed up. Just want to save myself of all the stress had to return it to the dealer for a Honda.

This is the best car I ever owned. Drives very well, reliable, body doesn't rust at all. I put over 200K miles and had very few issues. I've had american made cars before and the difference is noticed right away in attention to details.

This car was styled that year to challenge the BMW and many thought it was a Beamer. It got me across the country up and down hills through Blizzards and heavy rain and had a lot of stamina keeping its beauty till I traded 2017 for a Jetta!!

VW Passat W8

by from Bonner Springs, ks on July 22, 2017

This car was the crowning achievement for VW is the early 2000s. The W8 far exceeded anyone's expectations. The only downside was the maintenance that it requires.

Inside very neat and clean, Leather seats, GLX 4 Motion means AWD (high end), Have sunroof, Auto adjustable mirrors when you put it in Reverse mode, Mirros have defrost really help during snow, Wagon provides big storage, leather heated seats really help in winter, strong body, Monsoon sound system with CD, Radio and Tape very good, Every trouble or error you get display as text on dashboard, Worth buying with all loaded features, and really worth for money, Based on Age body is in very good condition, have little dent/scratch in rear passenger door and scratch at back side.

With my Passat, I have had many fun experiences and times whether that be with the friends or just driving around. It's a comfortable car and that still has that little bit of power under the hood to feel like it has some sport in it.

I was sceptical when I bought this car used with 110k, but it turned out to be one of the best cars I've ever owned! The motor is very reliable, especially if you maintain it regularly. The exterior and interior of my vehicle is immaculate and people are always surprised to hear that it is a 2003. The ride is not too noisy at high speeds (70+mph) and handles well on winding country roads. If you happen to find one in this generation that looks great I would definitely recommend buying it. You will not regret it.

I bought my GLX V6 5 speed new and have owned it for 11 years. It is a stylish and high performing car. Very reliable still after nearly 150K miles. Only complaint is it burns some oil in its later years - about 1 quart every 1,000 miles.
