Overall:

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 1.8T or 2.0 TDI - 4 cylinder engines and transmissions are satisfactory for this car.

Overall:

The car did not come with some of the features that were listed. The features that were missing were a sirius xm capatable radio, remote start, and a sunroof. The car runs great, and I like it a lot, but to be lied to really dampens my feelings toward the vehicle. I am working with the dealer to work out a way to get back two of the features.

Handling Ranked 2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL worse.
"Because Im used to it, the Passat feels nimble to me. The Altima reminded me of my old Geo Prizm and was not quite as engaging."
Would Buy Ranked 2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL worse.
"The standard technology in the SE is sufficient, and with the tech package, outstanding. Ride is firmer and simply more fun in the Passat than the Altima."
