Customer Review Summary for 2013 Volkswagen Passat
First Class Sedan with Great Fuel Mileage!
2013 Volkswagen PassatGlobal Networks - Colorado Springs, CO05/17/2016
When I purchased this car, I made my decision based mostly on the turbo diesel specification, and interior/cargo space. The ride comfort, sound system and interior controls were just an added bonus. After the first week of owning this car, I got a couple of fault codes which resulted in the replacement of a new turbo. Turbo replacement is common, and the folks at Volkswagen have me covered for free for 5 years/60,000 miles. Even during the fault codes, this car never left me stranded. I am a mechanic as well, so even if my vehicle would have been out-of-warranty, I would have replaced the parts myself and kept the vehicle.
On a full tank of fuel, I can easily drive 800 miles with about 30-40 miles to spare before filling up!
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.
