"This car was rated by CR as the #1 family sedan for 2006...a reflection of safety, comfort, and luxury. Great! However, I'm 25 and have absolutely no kids, so I purchased this car for a few very additional reasons. My search for a new car lasted nearly a year. After driving and comparing many cars I feel that the passat shares the acceleration, speed, and handling of top-rated sports cars. I love the car and have had only minor issues involving maintenance over the last year."
"First of all, excellent car, but very sensitive electric sensor for engine warning light trigger. Few occasions, engine warning light was on due to not tightly closed engine oil or gas cap lids. Other than that, very satisfied with the car."
"Other than not being AWD, the Passat is everything you could want in a German sport sedan!! Great power, handling, style, and fuel economy. No problems after one year and extremely comfortable on long trips!"
