    2002 Volkswagen Passat - GLS (M5) FWD Sedan

    Pros: interior design

    Cons: Dependability... if you want a dependable car, this is not it!!!!!!!!!!

    Advice: DO NOT BUY VOLKSWAGEN

    BEWARE: this make/model is a lemon! I bought this car brand new, and have already dumped 4k into the car and at 35,000 miles have been told I now need a new engine because of oil sludge. For more info: myvwlemon.com

    2006 Volkswagen Passat - 2.0T (M6) FWD Sedan

    Pros: 6 disc CD/MP3 In-Dash Player with Sirius Satellite Radio

    Cons: Anti-distortion feature on the radio. I cant BLAST it...

    Advice: If you like German cars, be prepared to fall in love with the Passat

    I just bought the 2.0T after trading in my Golf. This car is GREAT. I drove both the 3.6 and the 2.0T, but the 80hp difference didnt warrant the extra 5 grand to me. Both versions are nice for sure though, but having the 115hp golf Prior to the 200hp Passat, the step up was more than enough for me.

    2006 Volkswagen Passat - 2.0T (M6) FWD Sedan

    Pros: Engine. Transmission. Dynaudio. 17 in wheels. Trunk & folded back seats.

    Cons: Partially powered driver seat. Fog light, dimmer mirror, and other things are not available for 2.0T.

    Advice: Go test drive it. If finance allow, get 3.6 and all options. You will have the best for less.

    Wonderful car. I have 2.0T with all available options. It comes out a affordable luxury car. Very smooth, quick, and quiet car. I have mixed city/high-way driving. The average mileage is 26.5 mpg for the first 1000 miles. For high way only, it could get 33 mpg. It's great.

    Pros: The power-Tiptronic-Dynasound-Smooth drive-The onboard computer

    Cons: No complaints

    Advice: Consider this--if you do not care for the BMW/Mercedes name--this is as good

    Considered a 2.0. landed up buying the 3.6 Luxury Sports package. Beats BMW and other German makes. What a phenomenal car - immense power, smooth drive, very nice interiors. The alum grill on sports package and the rest of the dashboard is classy. Great substiture for a sports car --super handling.
