2007 Volkswagen Passat

by LASUKIE on 10-16-2012
Always Going to be VW
This is our second Passat. Great leather interior, mileage is excellent (great for highway driving), 6 speed manual transmission, and great power acceleration. Although it is a great car, there are minor concerns with the electrical system - remote control opening all doors with the exception of the drivers door, fuse blowing from time to time when the phone charger is plugged in, and the greatest concern is the parking brake, which is not a manual lever, does not always release when you are ready to drive the car, with no easy fixes. Hopefully these issues have been fixed with newer model vehicles!

2002 Volkswagen Passat

Great Family Vehicle
We have had this car for about a year now and use it for day to day family needs. It has quite a lot of room for a car this size. The gas mileage is not so great partly caused by the V6 engine.

2001 Volkswagen Passat

Trim: GLS 1.8T
by Lovemycar on 10-16-2012
Great driving automobile!
Love the car! The GLS has lots of power with the 1.8 Turbo that kicks in and also the Tiptronic transmission allows you to downshift for additional power or up-shift for smooth cruising. It is an automatic with standard-like shifting options for ultimate control. The car is roomy and comfortable with lots of legroom, headroom and elbow room front and back. The rear seats fold down to allow you to take large items like skiis to the hills without fiddling with a roof rack, or you can pack your bike inside the car. The trunk space is amazingly large. It has a multi-function trip computer that provides you with all the data required for a safe and comfortable ride anywhere. It is a great family car and sporty enough for any first time buyer.
