2007 Volkswagen Passat 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
We bought the car because we need a bigger car due to my mother-in-law being so ill and traded our VW Beetle convertible, yes we cried. This car we've owned for almost 2 years and have gotten great gas mileage and excellent reliability from our Passat. I don't like the car but for the price and features, size, comfort, suspension we can't beat the German price we got. Other owners have complained but how do they really treat their cars? Do they really service them when needed, Volkswagen has really come up from where they were a couple years ago. Back in 2000 I bought a brand new Beetle and the thing within a year broke down 6 times less than 10k miles, I'm impressed with the improvement of quality.
Suspension and smooth drive, great gas mileage.
Less octane gas, more feature in the vehicle like Bluetooth, etc.
