Wow! Fast Like Formule 3 With This Turbo Engine And Economical. — I like everything on this car, however for my needs I like more hatchback over sedan. This car has very roomy trunk with capability to flip seat to increase cargo space. Seats are very comfortable and stylish leather. Germans in Volkswagen company knows how to build a fast ,economical and powerful car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Very fast acceleration, good brakes, comfort,luxury interior, fuel economy

Cons: Not a hatchback, some rubber paint on door and radio buttons worn off.

Great , Couldn't Ask For Anything Else — driving this car on rugged roads, felt like you were driving a truck with amazing suspension, you feel nothing , its a quiet car, if you were to speed up you would hear that powerful 2.0t engine accelerate smoothly and quietly , Gets you were ever you need to go fast and comfortably. overall this was a great car and i really miss it after my accident it kept me safe without a scratch on my body and i would love to thank volkswagen for that , I'm currently searching for a newer model as we speak I'm very impressed with the new look and would be satisfied with it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Everything , this car was great , speed, look , style , no damage done to the seats , a few scratches on the rear passenger side fender , and a bb gun size dent on the rear passenger side door , other than that runs really well.

Cons: no sun roof, to drain the oil and replace the oil filter is a pain in the ass , it underneath the car but after a few months you get used to it.

Passat. The Love Of My Life...! — The Vw Passat is simply an amazing car. The 3.6 4Motion version is comfy, quick and spacious, as well as very safe both for the occupants, and driving-wise. The 7 speed DSG gearbox is a joy to use, and the 4Motion system makes it chew through ice and gravel. Simply an amazing car.

Pros: The car is very powerful, very comfy and a great roadtripper

Cons: It's kinda expensive to maintain, is quite thirsty and very jerky around the city

Offers Not Enough For The Amount Of Money One Pays. — Overall, this car was not worth anywhere near the amount of money that was paid for it, especially considering major problems right before/after the vehicle was paid off. Replaced turbo & catalytic converter for 1,700, now trans out! Outrageous! I thought in purchasing a Volkswagen I would be driving it for many years to come, however now my vehicle is sitting in a mechanics lot as I can't afford to spend 2,800 for the trans work. Have to sell it for parts as it's a money pit. This is a huge loss in this day & age where every penny counts. Don't understand why many folks claim good gas mileage when this model requires 91octane (which can no longer be found where I live, so used 93). Also, the peeling of the interior where all the control buttons are located made the vehicle appear cheap which is an extremely bad feature for a luxury car. Highly disgusted with this VW experience.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very safe vehicle, excellent power & handling. Handsome appearance.

Cons: High maintenance, burns oil, high octane gas required, gets stuck in snow/ice, seats not comfortable.
