2005 VW passat review by MIke on 07/10/2013. Trim: 2005 Volkswagen Passat GLS, Owned 8 years.
Pros: Great milage and handling, nice simple reliable car
Cons: Does not have a compass
Overall review: I have a 2005 with 87000 problem free miles with the 1.8T engine. Always changed oil at 5000 miles and use schaffers 5w40 synthetic oil. Just did the timming belt at 87000 miles becuase it was showing some age,VW recomands 100,000 but you must factor in age,While doing this I also changed out water pump and coolant. This does cost about $700-850 at dealers but parts are only 375 for do ityourselfers like me. Do not ever over look a timming belt on a VW it will destroy your engine to the point of no repair! Other wise a set of brakes and two sets of tires is all I have spent. I have owned this car since new and have been very happy with it.
