2007 Volkswagen Passat 2.0T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
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.
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).
The heater could heat up faster. Prior Passats' heaters were phenomenal.
