Not A Family Car — We had the car for a month! Yes, one month! I have three kids and this is NOT a kid friendly vehicle. The headliner started falling down, I had to have the water pump replaced in the first week, the buttons on the radio and door controls are all peeling. My son whose two and a half sometimes kicks the back of the seat and managed in a months time to start peeling the plastic on the back of the seat. The step panels just inside the rear doors have started to rip apart. I decided to sell the car while there was still equity in it and purchased a Durango which my kids can freely beat up. If you're single and not a teen or college kid, married without kids and or elderly, this could be a good car for you. It has 75k miles on it when I bought it and 76k when I sold it. Purchased for 10k, trade in 7.5k.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Punchy 2.0 turbo. Roomy cab. Good storage.

Cons: Repairs cost as much as higher dollar luxury cars
Cheap interior.

A Fun Yet Economical Estate — The VW Passat B6 estate sport 2.0 tdi is a great all round car. Well built, great load capacity - can fit loads in the boot without having to drop the rear seats. Reasonably quick, good fuel consumption and very comfortable for grippy sport handling. Great on the motorway - long trips are effortless.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: All rounder - estate sport is several cars in one

Cons: VW servicing costs
