First this vehicle provides a lot of bang for the buck and handles nicely especially if you like a tight, solid feedback. Interior room is excellent especially rear seat leg room and the surfaces seem well done without a lot of unneeded flash. The engine has good response yet still gets respectable gas mileage.
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!!
Great Lower Price Alternative to "Luxury Brands"
2009 Volkswagen PassatMelissa M - Atlanta, GA08/08/2015
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.
