"I have had nothing but problems since 1 month after I purchased the car. The engine coils failed, the front axel had to be replaced, the back trunk leaked, the wheel well over the gas tank had a recall, etc. The car has spent more time at the dealer getting repaired than a new car should."

"Ive driven this car on very long trips between Seattle and Houston. The car is very comfortable with a clean ride. It isn't a sports car, however, as noticed from the lower (yet not bad) performance. My car was upgraded with an electronic chip to add horsepower to make sure I can get around those large trucks on the highway. Excellent car."

"Like they say.. "Once you go diesel, you never go gas!" I frowned at the idea of getting a diesel at first because the picture i had in my head were those old mercedes benz putters that leave black clouds of smoke behind them. Definately not the case with my Passat! I love the fuel economy I get. $45 in diesel gets me 515-530 miles per tank! I haven't had any problems at all!"

"Has broken down 11 times in 4 years, bought car new from dealer. Unreliable. Volkswagen (main company and multiple dealers/service) not easy to deal with."

"Purchased vehicle from non-VW dealer, but sched. maint. @ VW dealer to keep factory warranty valid. Features & conveniences comparable to BMW, for ~2/3 price! Adequate cargo & passenger space. Very comfortable & fun to drive, esp. in "Tiptronic" mode. MPH = 25/34 city/hwy on regular (87) gas + "Outlaw" booster = 91 octane min recom. Engine never labors nor hesitates; turbocharger responds fine. VW Service says this is acceptable combo."

"Structurally, the car is built like a tank. The ride is awesome. We have the 4 cyl. and were getting about 17.5mpg in town and 22mpg highway on super unleaded ethanol. Switched to Premium fuel and now get 23mpg town 32mpg hwy. Don't run anything but premium fuel and you will do okay on milage. The Turbo cracked at 47k and had to be replaced (luckily under warranty) $2500 repair. After 50,000 miles is when the checkbook came out. We have had to replace: radio, drivers side visor (garage door opener fell apart), drivers side seat adjustment mechanism, brakes, rotars, water pump, all belts, some electonic engine sensor, battery, and cv boots. What is next??? Be ready to pay about double what you are used to paying for repairs as well. I will probably not own another VW in my lifetime."

"I have driven 45,000 miles and have had no problems. The car is excellent in the snow, the winter package (esp heated seats) is great. Fit and finish are good, seats very comfortable. The hvac is a little too manual and loud on high. Engine power is fairly weak with the 1.8 litre, 5 speed transmission"

"I've had this car since 11/05 and bought it new (it has 41k miles now). The only warranty item was the ABS sensor and our dealership took care of that very efficiently. It runs smoothly and is very comfortable especially for drivers over 6 ft. Nothing else bad has happened and I have enjoyed this car very much so far. The 4 motion system is excellent but uses some extra fuel. It needs higher octane fuel which can be fairly expensive. The scheduled maintenance is a must."
