"Bought my 2004 4Motion Passat as dealer demo with about 5,000 miles. Now 3 years later with 98,500 miles and still driving beautifully. This car has been a star. I drive 35-40,000 miles a year in snowy upper midwestern weather and it's proved to be great in it...better than my wife's all-wheel drive Mercedes. But alas...the designers missed the mark with the new 2007/8 design and have lost my business this go around."
"Just purchased my 2002 Passat. It is a drivers car with tight responsive driving feel.Seats are relatively comfortable and adjustable to fit a variety of driving positions. Has very sporty appearance and gets alot of attention. Well engineered driving machine!"
"I bought this car new and have owned for about 5 years. The first two years I used it as a commuter car and packed on the miles real fast. There was 2 factory recalls, both other than that the car hasnt broken down on me once. The reason I buy VWs is because of the quality of the interior and the safety of the car. I am religious about maintenance--I found a really good mechanic thats not obnoxiously overpriced like the dealer--and maybe thats why I have yet to have a problem. The car has 67k miles, still going strong."
"Car gets better gas milage and A WHOLE lot reliable than the 2003 PT Cruiser. I have gotten up to 30 miles per gallon. On average (more than 500 mile per trip meter) is 23 miles. This is mixed highway and city driving. Great acceleration to get onto busy streets. It has get up and go!!!"
