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


Purchased my Passat a little over a year ago with 77k. Thought this would be a good time to review what I think of this car so far. First off, this is a great driving car. By far the most enjoyable car I have owned as far as handling, engine performance, and road manners. VW has really nailed it with the steering on this car; very precise and accurate with good road feel. Also, the 4cyl engine in this car is very smooth with lots of power on tap. No turbo lag whatsoever. As for the minor glitches; main LCD dash display is starting to fade in/out and both power window switches on the driver's door that control the back windows only work intermittently. Typical German car wiring issues.

Worst Features

VW needs to learn a thing or two from American and Japanese automakers regarding wiring. I've noticed VW/Audi uses thin guage wiring in their cars which is more prone to failure over time. I owned a 1987 Audi 5000 and the wiring still hasn't changed in their cars in over 20yrs.
