Skip The Bmw, Get The Passat... — I love this car since day 1, fast as fast can be. When the Turbo kicks in, it slams you in the seat and makes you think you not in a family car.. This is a must have car for any garage!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fast, sexy, comfortable

Cons: none!

This Car Is The Shnizzle... — The car is wonderful. The 2.0 turbo has great power for such a small powerplant in a pretty big car and if you keep your foot in check, the mileage surpasses what the estimates tell us. The trim is amazing and tight, and I have had zero problems at the 17,000 mile mark. Though I think the stock Passat is a bit boring looking in comparison to the new Toyota Camry's or Mazda 6's... Mine has a nice ground effects kit that makes it look like a Ferrari in comparison. No regrets whatsoever...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Mileage, Interior finish, comfort and performance.                                

Cons: A little pricey and bland base styling.

I Love It! — Fast! Fun! Quality! Exclusivity! All wrapped up in a WAGON! Love the interior touches: cool red and blue lights, pull up sun shades for back windows, FAST turbo engine, great gas mileage, room for 5. I could go on and on about how much fun it is to drive. While I don't use the shift paddles on the steering wheel or the Tiptronic too much, I love dropping the automatic into SPORT mode and punching it---throws you in the back into your seat and surprises those around you who only see a station wagon. A wolf in sheeps clothing

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Not everyone has one.  Gas mileage, good looks, comfort

Cons: Wish it were a little quieter and wish the automatic lift gate could be closed without having to press the button on the hatch.  Depreciation

Does Everything It Says On The Tin! —

Performance - being a diesel it's quite brisk, especially mid range with ample acceleration in 3rd and 4th likewise cruizing in top gear (6th) along a motorway stretch. The brakes are sharp with good feel/response. Being a basic spec, handling is comfortable and responsive with some body roll on the softer non sport spring and dampers. Grip is lacking from the front end on the cheap tires at the moment, b ut I guess this would improve with a better brand tyre! The front seats are my biggest disappointment. They lack support and if cornering with 'gusto', you feel as though you are slipping out of the side. Although it has normal forward/backward and height adjustment including a good lumber adjustment/support, there is no tilt adjustment to give you a more 'planted/secure feel to the driving position which otherwise is excellent. Build quality seems to be typical VAG. Although I have noticed a rattle every now and again from the dashboard on the passenger side. Love the styling interior and out! It's neither shouting out or bland..... It's functional with a little sophisticated style. On short journey's around town I get about 600 miles from the tank. If doing long distance I am returning closer to 790 miles a tank which I thought was quite good! Never thought of the Passat (2.0TDI) as having a 'fun factor' but rather as a comfy cruizer that can pull it's weight if one needs to get a move on taking the roads in it's stride. It's certainly not a sports car, but a reliable family or exec car that is totally dependable! If I wanted a sports car, I'd have bought one!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Economical, comfortable and most dependable car!

Cons: Don't get the 'bog' standard trim..... spec up!

Sexy Wagon — The Germans make wagons look and drive cool. Don't know why most people go for clunky SUVs where they can get the same "volume" in a cool wagon that runs circles around them and gets better mileage. Beside, everyone else has a large, clunky SUV. I wanted to be a little different. This car says "me".

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Perfect size

Cons: Great features

Station Wagons Are Great, And Practicle And This One Is A Lot Of Fun To Drive. — This a drivers vehicle. It does cost a little more than you so called big three autos, but it is much better purchase in the long run. the turbo engine is more than enough power than you will ever need and it seems to be perfect at 80mph on the expressways here in chicago. i have a station wagon and it is fantastic. i get great fuel economy and i also have more storage space then any other station wagon that is on the market. 30+mpg on the highway going long distance beats the heck out of 18mpg with a tahoe.

Pros: Because i want quailty, storage and a fun to drive car.

Cons: Because you think you really need that SUV.

Good - If You Think About It — me like: spacious, comfortable, very well built, handling me not like: image referred to other germans like audi, BMW, price options, exterior design a bit dull for? people who rationally buy a car: good economy, good reselling value, built to last not for? people who want a sportscar, kick on italian design and need a high image car to confirm their identity

Pros: building quality, price/quality/space, driving

Cons: dull exterior design, lacks image
