Pros: "Peppy and responsive from start to highway speeds."
Cons: "Vehicle is 8 yrs old. Headliner is falling out."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8
"Volkswagon has maintained its state of the art mechanics and design efficiencies with the PASSAT. The vehicle is extremely reliable and roadworthy. Vehicle handling is extremely responsive and safe. Unfortunately, the installed 2006 auto transmission is sealed and cannot be routinely serviced."
"This car has been nothing but joy since I bought it used in 2012. Ive had the car for a little over 2 years and have only had one issue. The Check engine light came on one day but no worries! Took it to the dealer and they fixed it for free under a recall VW had sent out. Nothing else popped up. Compared to my wifes 2011 camry se, this thing takes it on every level. Power, comfort, road noise, even fuel economy. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a great intro luxury car. You will not be disappointed."
"With every option but the AWD/4-Motion & Dynaudio I have found this car to be the best VW I've ever owned and I doubt I'll ever let it go.
The interior of the car is that of a cc with remarkable quality stittching and amazing comfort and control.
This is the first DSG car I've owned and its exteemly responsive when shifted into Sport Mode. Paddle Shifting...WHAAAATT?
VR6 Power and often up to 30 MPG when I'm not "DRIVING" it like Andretti.
Reliability has been AMAZING...no issues but I do maintain the car well. VW really stood behind everything on the CPO "World Auto" cerrtified program...
Most of these were made in the 2.0 Turbo variant but this is the VR6...virtually indestructable and FarvegnuQuick!"
"Very low quality interior. Plastic parts were blistering and headliner fell apart within 2 years despite being parked in a garage. No dealer or factory warranty compensation
Have test driven other VWs and I see no change in quality in past 8 years. New car's interiors are falling apart while on the lot. Never again
I grew up with VW including buying a 78 bus in 1986 and putting 150k miles in 9 nines before selling it for move than I paid for it."
