Superb Performance — nice, spacious interior, very responsive engine making the handling so good and not too technical (since most modern cars are) and moderate fuel comsumption for a V6 engine

Fond Memories — The 2002 Passat was the first new car I ever purchased, so my memories of it may be a little rosier than the reality. But I recall the car as being a decent performer with good gas mileage. It had a nice ride, the seats were comfortable and it had that cool-as-hell VW dash lighting. Oh, and the stereo was fantastic.

2001.5 Vw Passat — Silverstone grey, bought new right when the B5.5 body style dropped, 5spd euro sedan. Loved every minute of it. Torquey and fun 1.8T with the stick.

Good pickup if you hit it right, Comfy ride, and a pleasure to drive

Cons

Bad gas mileage, Straight line performance kinda sucks, Turbo lag.

Quick When Used Right. — This car has always been enjoyable. Got it with leather and the but warmers work great. Once you get this thing past 90 its like driving a sports car it just doesnt want to stop. The turbo works magnificently.

Vw Passat 35i By Antti

Basic, good car. Nothing bad to say about it. Except the 1.6 engine, which sucked. Way too underdimensioned for the size of the car. It was good to drive. Corrosion was a minor problem. Some electric ... Read More
