    Meet my passat!

    Just purchased a used 2003 B5.5 30V V6 2.8L FWD Manual 5 speed. Saved up all my summer job money to buy my first car at 16!

    She is a beaut! Funny story but my very first drive of a VW, was one just like yours! However it was an automatic. :-( I loved the way it handled and I often raced by buddies V6 Honda Accord (and won). Hope you have many safe miles in your ride man!

    What are your opinions on the manual? I own a 1.8t 5 speed slapstick automatic. And personally I hate it the transmission.

    Congrats on the car. I am the original owner of my 2001.5 V6 Passat and can tell you if keep up with the regular maintenance of the car (oil, rad fluid, timing belt, etc) it will last a long time. My Passat has over 350,000Km on it and still looks great with no rust while the engine is still running strong :-)

    In my opinion. I think buying the manual at first was a risky thing. I didn't think I would like to shift all the time because I only learned to drive on automatics instead of standard cars. But when I finally learned and drove a few other manual cars. I think this one was the best for the buck. I shifts nicely, the shifts feel 'real' i don't know if it's just mine but I feels very. Satisfying. the 30v V6 2.8L is pently power for me. Lots of torque, quick, if done right I can the wheels spinning and burn out to impress the ladies haha but I personally love this car and the manual just feels. Good.

    Haha thank you, this being my first car purchase lots of people told me to get a Miata, they're sporty, 'quick', it looks cute. And that VW breaks down a lot so I was very hesitant. But I got behind the wheel of my Passat. And I just clicked with the car. I personally think it was a great purchase

    I got my Passat is 2004 1.8L 4Cyl, I got it in 2014 and I love it, but right now there are some problems with it. The coolant tank was leaking so I got that replaced, and moisture gets in the car which I still don't know what the problem is though. Recently my trunk latch stopped working so my trunk doesn't close...
