Before the Passat was a Passat, it was a Quantum. But first, at least in America, it was a Dasher. Offered in a variety of configurations, the slowest Dasher of all was the wagon with the four-speed manual receiving power from VW's 1.5-liter naturally aspirated diesel engine. Later versions got a 1.6-liter. 2015 models get 150 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque from a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel engine.
This particular Dasher has had an unusual amount of mechanical work for just 125,000 miles. Everything under the hood has been resurfaced, replaced, or refreshed in some way. The tank has been cleaned (and painted blue), and the always essential mud flaps have been added. For $1,500 or best offer, the buyer gets a few remaining jobs to complete a classic manual diesel wagon that's said to run well, if glacially slow. It will recalibrate your standards of slowness in a way that no YouTube review can.
PhiLOL actually likes the tuna here, but abhors structural rust. Save the manuals.
