“Superb Saloon Car”

published 16/04/2001

Great Engine, Great Body, Great Car

Slightly soft suspension.

Its with great regret that I prepare to say goodbye to my Passat 1.8T Sport. I chose it as a company car two years ago when my work required me to do endless long journeys, and it was perfect for that job. VW based the Passat on the same platform as the group's Audi A4 and A6. The A4 is slightly...

Suberb engine, strong build, refined ride

costly servicing, low petrol consumption

I've always had an input in choosing my parents cars since I was a kid. I was an avid topgear fan and read as many car magazines as I could get my hands on. But I did'nt help to choose this car and Iam glad I did'nt. I thought the passat was not unusual enough, too much like a rep car not a real...

I have for the past week had the pleasure of test driving this car. The engine on this thing is phenomenal. 150 bhp. The acceleration is awesome and the top speed at 137 mph is frightening. If you are weighing up having the 2.0 litre SE with a few extras or the 1.8T with no extras I would...

Why did I sell this car! I bought a passat because I needed a bigger car. I have always been into volkswagons so I know alot about the engines e.t.c. I started out by looking at the tdi to be sensible but saw a 1.8 20v on ebay which I payed £2200 for. My first suprise was how quick the car was, I...

My car is a 2000 'W' Reg VW Passat 1.8T Sport Saloon in Dragon Green. This car is absolutely fantastic. I am 6ft 4 and have a really comfy driving position, also when i have my seat in position there is still a vast amount of space behind. The engine remarkable. This is my first car and i don't...

Hi i bought one and the first thing i noticed was the amount of room you can fit a family of five in there with luggage no problems at all. The car drives great with the steering feeling light and responsive and rides over holes in the british roads with no problem or discomfort. The sunroof is...

“Subtle performer”

published 26/07/2000

Solid, best bits of VW and Audi

Drive can be bland at times

I love this car. It's basically the best bits of Audi and VW, but at a VW price. I have the full leather seats in mine, which is why the price shown here is above RRP. The body is based on the same B5 platform as the Audi A4 and A6, and is sized mid-way between the two. The 1.8T engine can be...

ive had my passat 12 months now its on a w reg,to drive it is really good looks great at night when all interior lights are on ie,radio.clocks air con,its fast for a big car but have to agree the fuel consumption is very poor 20-25 round town,90 miles cost me about £23,on a run34-37,which is quite good, i would recomend one if you do not do a lot of miles a week,put for someone like me who does a lot of short journeys as im a window cleaner id stay well clear

I got my Passat 1.8T SE in 1999 as a company car and liked it enough to buy from the leasing company after the contract. It's great for my 1 hour commute (mixed town and country) and also for long-drive holidays with the family. The boot is easily big enough for me not to 'need' an estate or...

Ride can be harsh for sustained cruising.

I got my car 3 years ago. It has been a superb work horse. I use the car for my commute to work, a job it does effortlessy, if a little thirstily. The car then "goes to work" where I sometimes need power. The Passat Sport 1.8T has this in bucket loads. From the outside most people will not...
