Superb Saloon Car

AdvantagesGreat Engine, Great Body, Great Car

DisadvantagesSlightly 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 smaller than the Passat and the A6 slightly larger, but both are more expensive than the Passat. Some may prefer the Audi badge, but in terms of value ..." Read review

Possibly the best family saloon?

AdvantagesSuberb engine, strong build, refined ride

Disadvantagescostly 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 individuals car. Maybe all of these are true but they don't matter when put against the sheer quality of the passat an understanding of the car only comes ..." Read review

Passat 1.8t 20v Sport.

AdvantagesBig boot, Good motorway cruise missile, suprised in how cheap parts are.

DisadvantagesA bit thirsty, ride quality a bit soft. keep grouding on speed humps.

"I bought my passat second hand 3 years ago now, It had 110,000 miles on the clock and a full service history. i have never regretted buying it. What a lot of car for the money i paid! it came with Air Con, 4 Electric Windows, Electric Mirrors, Sports seats, Airbags all round, Alloys. This car was 18,000 Brand new! The first thing about this car is the size of it, their's plenty of leg room for rear passengers, and for front passengers. The boot space ..." Read review

You have to drive this car

AdvantagesEngine is FANTASTIC. You MUST drive it to believe it.

DisadvantagesDrinks petrol like it's gone out of fashion. Bad Jack point for tyre change.

"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 throughly recommend having no extras and getting a car that will make you smile every time you get in it. The only problem is that becasuse it is very difficult ..." Read review

passat 1.8t 20v love this car hate petrol prices

Advantagesfast, big, good looking list goes on.

Disadvantagesfuel consumption, rear suspension, seats, light steering.

"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 knew it was 1.8 turbo but its a big car (bigger than some parking spaces). The fist few days i was driving it i was like a loony, how could a car this ..." Read review

Subtle performer

AdvantagesSolid, best bits of VW and Audi

DisadvantagesDrive 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 found right across the Audi/VW/Seat/Skoda range, and boy does it go when you put your foot down! The AirCon (or should I say 'Climate Control') is VW, which ..." Read review

good good good

Advantageseverything

Disadvantagesthe radio only has speakers in the front (thats all i can say honest)

"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 larger than most and the electric mirrors automatically fold in when the car is locked the mirrors are also heated which is handy for the cold winter mornings ..." Read review

My first car, and more than satisfied.

AdvantagesFantastic Engine, Build Quality, Comfort, Space.

DisadvantagesOverly Soft Suspension, Not as fun to drive as rivals (Mondeo)

"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 have any other experience driving other cars but one thing is for sure, the engine is extremely powerful. You get power right through the rev range, ..." Read review

AdvantagesBUILD QUALITY, RELIABILITY,VALUE FOR MONEY

DisadvantagesNear side lower ball joints don't last due to the state of our AMAZING ROADS

"BEST CAR THAT I HAVE OWNED I bought my VW Passat 20v Turbo Sport some 2 +years ago 2nd hand , the car was originally bought by a leasing company from new. Fully dealer serviced and looked after, the person that ordered it had all the usual extras fitted , so I benefited from their good taste without being out of pocket!! AMAZING PERFORMANCE! EXCELLENT ROAD HOLDING, but only with NEW REAR SHOCKS FITTED as they wear out gradually and you don't ..." Read review

Quick review of Volkswagen Passat 1.8T 20V

"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

Great family car with a sporty edge

AdvantagesComfort, space, family-friendly, acceleration, high speed cruising, pretty displays inside!

DisadvantagesA few glithes with alarm/locks; suspension a little too soft; expensive dealer servicing

"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 truck too. The performance is good - you realy feel the little turbo supporting acceleration and cruising. I'm looking into getting an enhanced engine management ..." Read review

Best car I've had for a longer period of time.

AdvantagesA wolf in sheep's clothing. Comfort for a sport. Power for a "rep mobile"

DisadvantagesRide 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 realise the potency of the car. There are no flash spoilers or go faster straipes. Just the 1.8T badge and wider, lower tyres. I change my car in the next ..." Read review
