Have had the TDI Passat for 6000mi now and LOVE it. My experience gives it 28- 30 around town and 40-43 highway at 75- 80 mph. Went through the Smokies up to Canada cruise control doesn't slow down at all going up the mountain grades. All in all my wife and I feel the vehicle performed much better than expected, truly an under rated ride and performance. The little 2 lt diesel will push you into the back of the seat over 2000rpm. Will blow through 100mph easily while passing tractor trailers if not careful. We're in our 60's with back problems and have put in several 10-12hour days and love this vehicle. Quiet rumble sounds great all with no smelly diesel stink. Check it out!
acceleration fuel economy throaty rumble from engine in passenger compartment comfort-sporty autobahn like feel great solid looking design Tutonic luxury great trunk room responsive 12vt power taps work without key in ignition my wife likes it
Cruise control works-crudly Trunk lid stiff and difficult for my wife to fully open. But it is solid. Interior storage space, pockets
