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

The features are outdated and that’s one of the reasons why it does not justify the high price. It’s missing more refined features such as leather interior and less plastic… a better backup camera and... Read More

The V6 engine (which is otherwise stellar) creates way too much torque steer and wheel spin on the front wheel drive Passat. Also, the DSG transmission (V6 model) is jerky at lower speeds. The 1.8... Read More
