New Guy with question

Postby Gnobiwan » Thu Jun 05, 2014 2:06 am

Hello everyone! A friend of mine turned me on to this site and it is looking pretty sweet so far. I am actually in the market for my first Volkswagen and was curious as to what people's thoughts are of a 2004 Passat WR8 Tiptronic Sedan. I have read mixed reviews all over the internet but for the price the seller is asking, I don't think I can pass it up. I would appreciate any feedback, stories , personal experiences or just information in general. Again, love the site and would love to hear from some peeps.

Nah, it turned out she was selling it through eBay motors in a private sale. Seemed like too much hassle, being in Vermont and all. We ended up getting a 2000 Passat GLS Wagon, Super Clean with a lot of extras for a decent price. Buying an '02 Beetle on Monday as well.
