2007 Volkswagen Passat 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
After looking at and driving the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry I chose the Passat for the interior comfort and the Turbo 4. Well now I've owned it for 2 years and this was the best decision Ive made for a family car. The turbo 4 is great and I'm seeing actual MPGs of 19 to 21 in the city and 33 to 34 on the highway, so a full tank of gas takes me about 400 to 425 miles. This surprised me as it wasn't rated this high. The car handles great and this base car has everything we need. The only problem I have is the difficulty in performing basic maintenance. Otherwise the car is perfect. Oh Ive had a hell of a time keeping proper psi in the tires and had 1 tires replaced by conti for 1/2 price
2.0 Turbo 4, 6 spd trans, fuel economy, fit and finish, handling
More power, DSG trans, they need to get together with Continental to provide a better tire. I cant keep proper psi in any of the tires for more than a week. And the right rear tires belt shifted with only 15,000+ miles but Continental pro-rated half the cost. Im gonna use a different tire brand next
