VW has admitted to installing so-called defeat devices on Volkswagen and Audi cars with four-cylinder diesel engines dating to the 2009 model year. The devices � actually software code � switch on pollution controls when the cars are being tested, but turn off the controls when the software determines that the cars are back on real roads. Affected models include the Jetta, Golf, Beetle, Passat and Audi A3. VW has said a total of 11 million cars worldwide have the software worldwide.

2013 Volkswagen PassatMike P - Tidewater, VA10/28/2015
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!!!!
Terrible structural rigidity produced squeaks.

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.
