Great Lower Price Alternative to "Luxury Brands"

2009 Volkswagen Passat Melissa M - Atlanta, GA 08/08/2015

I have owned two Saabs. The repair costs were always heavy duty. But I always loved the solid handling and the fact that you say up higher above the road than the luxury Toyotas and Hondas. The VW Passat handles like the "luxury" lines at a lower price point.

Terrible structural rigidity produced squeaks.

2014 Volkswagen Passat Rob P - fort myers, FL 10/22/2015

Shoddy construction of handles, switches etc. Extremely poor electronics: slow and delayed response to GPS input and radio station changes. Worst radio I've ever used. Headlights and tail lights are antiquated halogen technology and very dull putting out too little light. Car had an excellent engine, but the car around it... Poor. I would not buy another Volkswagen nor would I recommend one based on my experience. I traded it in within 6 months.

Great car for price and value.

2014 Volkswagen Passat J Fletcher - Atlanta, GA 05/01/2017

Very nice car for the value. I've driven many cars and this one will rank among the highest. The transmission is a little jerky- No reliability issues. Other than that, I can not complain. Safety is my number one priority. I always double check safety ratings and this was among the highest. With two small children, we need a safe, reliable, and stylish car. I will definitely buy one again. VW!!
