2007 Volkswagen Passat 2.0T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Just inherited an '07 Passat which is a lovely car but don't know if I would have chosen to purchase it. The first ordeal was the keys had been lost and the car had been garaged for 2 years. It took 3 trips (of 120 miles round trip) to visit the nearest dealership to get "keys". First I ordered a little black plastic thingy that had to be programmed to the vin# ($67) to open the car - no keys found inside. Then I had to order the outer remote key ($130) THEN I HAD TO TOW THE CAR to the dealership to have it programmed all together!!!!!! The entire ordeal took one week and cost me more than $500!!! SO DON'T EVER, EVER LOSE YOUR "KEY"!!!
Exterior look, trunk space, acceleration, gas mileage
Very uncomfortable driver seat if you are short. Lots of road noise. Car always locks itself so I have to constantly unlock it to let passengers in/out
