2008 Volkswagen Passat Turbo 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I moved up from a Jetta, which I loved, to a Passat. My initial reason was for comfort; the Passat seats are by far the most comfortable I have tried. But beyond the comfort I also discovered an incredible driving experience. The 4 cylinder turbo is so smooth and when you need the power, it is definitely there! You would never know it was only 4 cylinders. As I noted with my Jetta, the basics that come with a VW far surpass most other vehicles. It is definitely worth the money. I have the 6 speed manual which makes the ride even more fun and the mpg is good too! We have been getting up to 34 mpg highway and average 25-27 in the city. I have over 3,000 miles - not one glitch. Love it!
The turbo and the seats.
The one cup holder in the front seat is a little close to the dash. But if that's the only thing you can find wrong with a new car, that's pretty good!
