Great car! The back seat has plenty of
room for adults to sit comfortably.
Driving performance is great, Excellent
turning radius, car has a secure heavy
feel to it. The car has lots of room
and a huge trunk. This is my second

Strange but true - the windshield
wipers adjust their speed with the rain
fall - excellent feature especially for

The Passat wagon has been good, except
for one glaring oversight: absolutely
no bin storage in the interior. The
glove compartment is very small, and
requires you to either remove the
owners manual to make room for other
items, or to keep the owners manual in
the door pocket. The door pockets are
very tiny, and the console storage area
is virtually non-existent.
Other than the storage issue, this car
has been a great car to own. Very
peppy, comfortable to ride in, and the
heated seats and leather interior has
been a dream.
Heated seats - a god-send in the cold
climate of upstate NY.
Center armrest console needs to be
redesigned and made to accept much more
than it does. The glove compartment
should be much bigger - lose the
refrigerated glove compartment feature
and just give me more room.
Great looking, fantastic out on the
road, solid as a rock and just purrs at
80mph but the 2 second pause before the
turbo kicks in when you step on the gas
from a dead stop is one big negative.
(you learn quickly not to pull out with
oncoming traffic) Oh, a second
negative, the engineer who figured that
a rotary knob on the side to recline
the driver's seat was a good idea needs
to go back to design school, i.e. just
reach behind you with your non dominant
hand and rotate the knob while lifting
your body weight from the seat ...yeah.
Leather is beautiful and the heated
seats are great. Nice attention to
details. The radio is clear with great
definition. Out on the interstate it is
Eliminate the pause at the start of
acceleration. Switch to a handle to
recline the seat.
