2001 Volkswagen Passat GLS V6 Sedan

[Passat Photo]
My car is a Passat GLS V6 4-door sedan in Colorado Red (color code LB3Y), as in the image above. It includes the Luxury package (Power glass sunroof, tilt and slide, tinted glass, rear sunshade, 7J x 15" "Adelaide" alloy wheels, and Anti-theft wheel locks), the Cold Weather package (Heated windshield washer nozzles, and heatable front seats [Nice!] ), and the Monsoon 8-speaker sound system with amplifier.

Photos of my car are available here.

My epinions.com review of the car is here.

Note: Volkswagen made a mid-model-year "facelift" update to the Passat. That means there is a 2001 Passat available in two different body styles. I have the original "B5" body style. Please do not write and tell me that my page is wrong, or that I don't know what kind of car I am driving.
