Super low mileage and fun turbo engine.

2004 Volkswagen Passat GLS Sedan

My car is fun to drive with its turbo engine. It also gets great gas mileage. It fits five people comfortably with tons of trunk space. Super reliable and easy to maintain. I also have very low mileage at under 80,000. For a 15 year old car she's in pretty amazing shape.

Good commuter car passat but nothing special.

2004 Volkswagen Passat GLS Sedan

Safe. Cooling system has been an issue. I have spent a lot of money repairing that. Also the parts are sometimes hard to find. Gas mileage is not great but fine. We used to have a manual passat and it was much better gas mileage. Fine commuter car. Wouldn't but again.
