2007 Volkswagen Passat Sedan 2.0T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

Since '91 I have owned 6 cars, 5 of them Passats (1 of each generation)-- and each one got better than the previous one. When you compare handling,styling, fit & finish, safety, room, features and price, nothing else even comes close!! My prior car was an '04 BMW 325xi and I sold it 6 months early to get back into another Passat and no regrets.


Best Features

It is just so much fun to drive. Every mechanical system works in harmony with every other one. I love the styling and the bi-zenon headlights with AFS and cornering lights. The 2.0t motor is extremely peppy and the mileage is great. I also love its luxury II pkg (leather, sunroof, etc).


Worst Features

The heater could heat up faster. Prior Passats' heaters were phenomenal.

2007 Volkswagen Passat Sedan 2.0T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

It is really a great car with quick acceleration for a 4 cyl engine. Comfortable and roomy. I wish I had bought it for me and not my wife.


Best Features

Power lift gate, heated seats, 33 mpg hwy


Worst Features

I cant reset the service light when I change the oil myself. I would also like the power hatch to have a manual override.

2007 Volkswagen Passat Sedan 2.0T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I purchased my VW used. I drove a BMW Z4 Coupe prior and have owned a Turbo S Beetle and C5 Corvette. This Passat is what I expected...that's why I bought it. I considered three premium used sedans over the Passat. A Saab 93, Caddy CTS and Audi A4. This time it was about VALUE. Everybody is complaining about comfort. I have those sport seats in my Passat that come standers in the VW CC. So far I've made three trips from LA to San Francisco and one LA to Las Vegas. Excellent mileage! I'm very and looking at the CC next


Best Features

The sport seats, the rear seats. The manual 6 Speed and the fact that it doesn't look like a Camry.


Worst Features

I don't like the push button parking break.

2007 Volkswagen Passat Sedan 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

After looking at and driving the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry I chose the Passat for the interior comfort and the Turbo 4. Well now I've owned it for 2 years and this was the best decision Ive made for a family car. The turbo 4 is great and I'm seeing actual MPGs of 19 to 21 in the city and 33 to 34 on the highway, so a full tank of gas takes me about 400 to 425 miles. This surprised me as it wasn't rated this high. The car handles great and this base car has everything we need. The only problem I have is the difficulty in performing basic maintenance. Otherwise the car is perfect. Oh Ive had a hell of a time keeping proper psi in the tires and had 1 tires replaced by conti for 1/2 price


Best Features

2.0 Turbo 4, 6 spd trans, fuel economy, fit and finish, handling


Worst Features

More power, DSG trans, they need to get together with Continental to provide a better tire. I cant keep proper psi in any of the tires for more than a week. And the right rear tires belt shifted with only 15,000+ miles but Continental pro-rated half the cost. Im gonna use a different tire brand next

Review

I bought it new. First foreign car I have ever owned (grew up in Detroit) and it is by far the best car. Looks great. It is very quick and handles nice. No problems with car and it now has 48,000. I have been told by a mechanic friend the key to German cars is you must maintain them very well.


Best Features

Looks, power, and the many safety features.


Worst Features

Front seats are not as comfortable as I would like.
