2002 Volkswagen Passat GLX 2.8T V6 from North America
The best model VW ever built
Outer CV Boots.
Reflex silver exterior, black leather interior. The best car I have ever owned. The fit and finish is excellent, probably the best interior ever built for a non-luxury vehicle. The quality of the construction is unbelievable, right down to the reflection of light off the paint to the difference in how it feels to close a door or a trunk or open a storage compartment vs. other cars. The styling is classic beautiful German, the V6 is adequate, but certainly not nearly as performing as a Nissan Altima. It is so quiet to drive, handling is above average. Bought as a certified pre-owned off lease. Leather seats and moonroof make it all the better. The new 2006 B6 has one advantage only and that is a powerful stock 2.0L engine, otherwise if the other things are important vs. power, buy a used B5.5.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
