Transmission: Automatic Color:Black Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.667 reviews) Ok, let me first say that this is coming from someone that had a 06 Passat VR6, I loved that car, especially the power that the engine had, my major complaint with my car was that the premium fuel was expensive and repairs were killing me. The new Passat is a world of difference, quiet ride, better seats, better handling, better radio, and I am still finding nice little touches that make me absolutely love the car. There are things that I have found on cars much more expensive and what I find makes me glad I brought the car. The radio programming needs some help, there is no excuse for it to be as slow as it is but it is not slow enough for me to want to get rid of the car. I love it!!!!

Had this car for 3 weeks and am super impressed with turbo performance -- it's there when I need it. Car handles great; no slipping in the rain. Has all amenities I need. Using as a commuter car, so mileage important - averaging 32 mpg, (75% highway/25% town). Bluetooth great. Tinted windows great. Visibility great. Had Chrysler 300 that I HATED. Everything in the Passat is user friendly (unlike Chrysler). Very sporty and practical feel to Passat. Only downside is black interior (shows dust). This is our 4th vehicle from CarMax - wouldn't buy used anywhere else. Always a pleasure.

Loving My New Passat!

Sporty and great MPG. Had this car for 3 weeks and am super impressed with turbo performance -- it's there when I need it. Car handles great; no slipping in the rain. Has all amenities I need. Using as a commuter car, so mileage important - averaging 32 mpg, (75% highway/25% town). Bluetooth great. Tinted windows great. Visibility great. Had Chrysler 300 that I HATED. Everything in the Passat is user friendly (unlike Chrysler). Very sporty and practical feel to Passat. Only downside is black interior (shows dust). This is our 4th vehicle from CarMax - wouldn't buy used anywhere else. Always a pleasure.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy:
  • Visibility:
  • Ride and Handling:

- Barbara Higgins, 2014 Volkswagen Passat

ok if you want a VW Buick

VW "dieselgate", sluggish at the helm, leans in curves, no sound insulation in roof, which makes downpours sound like hail on a tin roof, sound system adequate bot not good, diesel engine not as quiet as gas engine at idle, suspension can be a little floaty over some dips in the road. Crummy Hankook stock tires make a lot of noise on coarse pavement. radio take several seconds to change channels so if you're cycling through stations you have spend a lot of time waiting.

Pros

  • Safety: great crash test ratings, radio controls on steering wheel, great mileage, turbo makes driving (in a straight line) more fun, heated seats really nice on a cold morning
  • Fuel Economy: 36 mpg around time, 45-50mpg on the highway. note that diesel fuel is more expensive than gasoline
  • Interior Space: huge inside, lots of leg and head room even in back

Cons

  • Ride and Handling: the car handles adequately for a large car, but it feels heavy and is slow to respond to steering input. I've had to swerve on the interstate to avoid getting hit by an unattentive careless driver from anoter lane and the quick maneuvers exposed the ponderous response and heavy body lean.
  • Styling: conservative, boring exterior. I like the simple Germanic interior.
  • Value: expensive for what you get and depreciates rapidly over the years

- anonymous anonymous, 2013 Volkswagen Passat

Good car, wonderful MPG!

Ok, let me first say that this is coming from someone that had a 06 Passat VR6, I loved that car, especially the power that the engine had, my major complaint with my car was that the premium fuel was expensive and repairs were killing me. The new Passat is a world of difference, quiet ride, better seats, better handling, better radio, and I am still finding nice little touches that make me absolutely love the car. There are things that I have found on cars much more expensive and what I find makes me glad I brought the car. The radio programming needs some help, there is no excuse for it to be as slow as it is but it is not slow enough for me to want to get rid of the car. I love it!!!!

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: 50+MPG flat out on the interstate? Need I say more?
  • Ride and Handling: Smooth, pretty comfortable and responsive ride.
  • Seat Comfort: Pretty comfy, easy to make a long road trip in.

Cons

  • Cost to Maintain: If you do some research you will find that the DSG transmission needs service every 40K, and at 120K the particulate filter needs to be replaced to a tune of well over 1K
  • Technology and Entertainment: Radio programming needs some serious attention. Sometimes there is a several second delay, you can hit a button and it takes a few seconds for the system to respond. For example you can put the car in reverse and then drive off and the radio screen is still showing the rear view camera.
