2007 Volkswagen Passat 2.0T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
At just over 30k miles, I would have to say that this is a pretty good car. Other than regular maintenance (which is more expensive than I anticipated), I've had it in the dealership to update the ECU once. The build seems solid, and that turbo makes it a blast to drive with good gas mileage to boot. Handling is good, not tight, but not sloppy either. The interior seems very refined, I don't have all the rattles that I've experienced with other cars. I didn't care for the stock radio, so installed my own. There's so many "little" features about this car that I just love. I hope it lasts quite awhile.
4cyl Turbo. Good gas mileage. Many safety features. Cheap to insure. Dash display.
Get "normal" seat adjustments, that rotary dial is just ridiculous! Make engine air filter easier to get to. Wheel bolt pattern isn't a "mainstream" size, and difficult to easily find aftermarket wheels for.
