DONT BUY THIS MODEL (2006-2010) PASSAT (or anything from VW and Audi with the 2.0T engine) Biggest money trap I’ve ever experienced in a car. First the water pump went bad, causing the engine to overheat. The transmission immediately started getting choppy. Then the rear seal went bad. Then the crankshaft, the tensioners, the timing chain... VW group designs it’s cars engines and hoses out of cheap plastics and rubbers so they are so fragile well before the 60K mark.

Love It — One of the best vehicles I've driven. The antenna system seems to act up during cold weather as the receiver has to warm up before the signal goes to 100% during warm up it only receives at about 65% meaning weak signal...Sirius however works fine all the time.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Everything about this Passat is Great!

Cons: Wish I had Navagation

3d Passat And No Wonder! — 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 they hold their value....they are excellent cars! Only issues were 2 recalls for ignition coil & fuel injection

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Easily the power and handling! Highway performance & mileage is outstanding

Cons: front seats just a bit narrow

It Has So Many Options You Wont Be Disappointed! — It is an amazing car. The quaility is superior to many cars produced today and has much more than many that are 15 to 20K more. No one will be disappoint when they have a car that is like this.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It is Germany Technology and extremely solid

Cons: Nothing!

Smooth Cruiser. — New daily hack. Replacement for the Leon. Very happy with this car. It's the new R-line model, so comes with some nice bits and peices on it. I chose biscay blue and added dual zone climate with touch screen audio system which is excellent. Its only let down being that it has no bluetooth connectivity. Comfortable and capable cruiser. Smooth, refined and pretty well built as you'd expect from VW. It has had to go back to VW for a dodgy airbag slip ring and faulty clutch slave cylinder. Shouldn't really expect this from VW, but the dealership was pretty good and got the car turned around in good time. Can't really fault the car yet. Does everything I want it to. I think the lack of bluetooth is probably my only gripe.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Smooth, well built.

Cons: None

A Much More Sportier Look And Will Hopefully Hold Its Value More On The Second Hand Market. — Slightly different to the standard Passat, it has a more racked apperance and comes with loads of standard extras. Parking sensors are a must as visibility is a little restrictive through the rear window. Would definetly recommend to others as a family car with a bit more styling.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good handling and very comfortable long distances.

Cons: If you need space for three in the rear it only has two full size seats.

Nice design inside and out, roomy, but feels a bit on the heavy side when steering, and prone to mechanical problems as it ages
