Thanks Dan and Nick for the responses - much appreciated.  We, too, felt the A6 was just a little big feeling for us still.  The Passat should be just right.

Thanks again

    My wife and I are looking at the 2004-2005 Passat 1.8T 4Motion Wagon for her. My understanding is this is an identical engine and drivetrain (quattro=4Motion on the Passat) to the A4. We like the Passat due to the extra length - I measured an extra 3 inches or so.

    Does anybody know different?

  That's my understanding, Brandon. The longitudinally-engined VW's and Audis share the same system the transverse-engined ones the other..... I like the Passat wagons a lot. Unfortunately, with 3 kids we don't fit......
