    My Impression Of Her Has Declined Steadily. — Timing belt at 70k, sewing machine idle. Turbo is nice but I stepped out of an E-class Mercedes. It's gotten too small for two growing boys and their accoutrement. Performs well in snow with proper rubber all around but had very big shoes to fill.

    Pros: Nothing

    Cons: Lately, reliability.

    Chris Thomas — Great quality car VW has really outdone themselves. It is very responsive and has great power especially in the 3.6 version. Handling is great for the size of the car. It is funny to race people in this car because they don't expect it to have that much power.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Performance price quality

    Cons: touchy throttle

    Wagon For Everyday — the steering wheel is way too thin. Dissappears in your hand. The handling is a little soft, but great for comfort and ferrying the family about. Not built for the switch backs of Switzerland or Slovenia. Mileage is pretty decent if you are not lead footed.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: truck! It's Hugamongus!!!

    Cons: steering wheel!

    I Would Definately Have One Again. — Great for transporting helicopters, he, he! Loads of space, loads of power, very comfortable, fun to drive, great on diesel and very reliable. The build quality is excellent, solid as a rock. Long journeys are no problem, it's so comfortable.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Power and comfort.

    Cons: Just a tad low to the ground.

    Passat Cc From Greece — My passat CC has an 3.0 V6 engine with 300hp and 4WD. It has the classic but the best quality of Volkswagen. Incredible interior with board computer and computer. The exterior with a black pearl colour, 19' rims and for Greece where I live it's one of the best car to drive in our country.

    Pros: Performance,design and economical

    Cons: the cost of the extras

    Audi Styling & Handling At Vw Pricing. — Couldn't be happier with the Passat Wagon. Large storage use, handles like a dream and wonderful styling inside and out (but of course the 2012 version has been dummied down to look and drive like a Camry). Engine has great torque throughout the band, just zooms all the way up to red line. Like all VWs, price drops rapidly from new, but that means there are great used car values out there.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Fabulous torquey 2.0 Turbo, excellent handling & braking, attractive styling, very quiet.  Been very reliable, with no real issues at all.  At (50)K, still on original tires and brake shoes.  Very intuitive, logical German designed systems.  Excellent interior styling. Serius Radio.

    Cons: Although not excessive maintenance requirements, very expensive if done by dealer.  Rigid maintenance requirements (fluid changes etc) that must not be ignored - but maybe that's a good thing...  (10) speaker/6 CD audio very good, but not excellent.  Reasonable mileage at 23 mpg around suburbs/to and from work, but nothing to write home about. Premium fuel REQUIRED.

    3d Passat And No Wonder! By nedm

    This 2010 is truly the last of the good performance Passats. VW blew it with the underpowered 2012+. It is simply a blast to drive. The 2.0L turbo w/ 200 hp is amazingly responsive and FAST! No wonder... Read More
