Mid Week Match-Up: Talk Jeff Out Of A W8 Passat

This week’s Mid Week Match-Up is to help Jeff who is considering a trip to Mechanicsville…no…that isn’t right…Mechanicsburg, where you can find this 2004 Volkswagen Passat W8 with a 6-speed manual– BUT, we have a short window to talk him out of it.  What should Jeff get instead?

From Jeff:  I know nothing about German cars. The only one I even remotely considered purchasing was an E39 M5, but didn’t. However, this one seems almost as cool in a sleeper sort of way. It’s been on my local craigs list for several months and I assume it hasn’t sold because the owner is sticking to his price. Can you please share your professional opinion? I’m starting to look for cool wagons, but I have to sell my Z first.


What should Jeff buy with his money?  Comments below.
