Wagon Wednesday: Volkswagen Passat W8 Wagon


I was out perusing Craigslist again (when will I learn?), and stumbled upon quite the rarity: a manual-transmission-equipped Passat W8 wagon. For the longest time, I was convinced that these were a myth, a Teutonic creature created to strike awe and fear into our hearts. Well, my heart may not fear it, but my wallet sure does. 


It’s a bit of a miracle such a car ever was sold here. Quite frankly, I have no idea what this should be worth, given just how few there are.

If you find an Audi S4 Avant to be too quotidian for your tastes, then look no further. There’s clearly been a lot of care put into this one. You are a braver soul than I.

From the ad:

2002 Volkswagen Passat W8 6spd AWD Wagon – $11000 (Richfield)
