Now have 2300 miles on this fine automobile. I would not trade it for anything made by Toyota or Honda. The handling is superb. Already had to use the fine braking. The girl in the Toyota PU looked happy the Passat stopped so quickly when she pulled out in front of us. Very quiet well built vehicle. Highly recommend the VW TDIs.
Diesel torque combined with the Tiptronic transmission. Plus the great mileage. 33.4 MPG total half town half highway.
Always need more room, my other vehicle is a Suburban.
