2009 Volkswagen Passat Wagon Komfort 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

I shake my head at all our neighbours driving these hideous SUVs and crossovers that handle like buses and drink fuel like crazy. There are options! This car has way more room than our neighbour's Murano and is a blast to drive! We love manual trannys and this was the only wagon we could get one in. We got a highline with real leather, moonroof, dual climate, satellite radio. Had an Acura TSX before and this is quicker but gets the same mileage. It is also quieter and smoother but the leather and aesthetics were nicer in the Acura.


Best Features

Love the engine and trans. Unbelievable engineering to get this kind of low end torque from a turbo 4.


Worst Features

Not crazy about the black plastic sill around the exterior, hard to keep clean and would look much nicer if it were body coloured. Some of the exterior plastic chrome is already rusting despite very frequent washes.

Review

This has been a great car. Love the size of the trunk and the power tail gate great. The leatherette is actually really nice feeling. The engine can really pull this car if you step on the gas.


Best Features

Navigation, Engine, The Car


Worst Features

Wish the car came with the Ipod cord for the mdi hook up.

Review

I wish I could bring this car back to the USA with me. With 50+ MPG, it is incredible. Engine fairly quiet. Service after 10K is way too long


Best Features

The auto startup/shutdown to save even more fuel when stuck in traffic jam.


Worst Features

The car is way long. Wish I had park assist. My BlueMotion suspension is too low to the ground and sometimes causes problems in the snow

Review

Admittedly have only driven the car 6K miles, but must say, am more than pleased. Well thought out with ever so many clever features that make car seem like it knows you. Sweetest engine I've driven - excellent power due to great low end torgue via turbo charger. Rides like on rails, yet seems like larger luxury ride. One needs to keep an eye on options (can escalate pricing rapidly) and bargain aggressively - with that in mind, pricing is quite attractive and competitive.


Best Features

Honey of an engine. Great vinyl seats that look exactly like leather (I simply KNEW that was possible, but cuts into up-charging for real leather). Cavernous interior. Lots of storage space. Serious driver layout of seating and dash. GREAT handling with high end ride. Styling sophisticated.


Worst Features

Nice audio system (10 speaker/6 CD), but could use more bass, cleaner anyway. Maybe a little more throat to the engine, but that's more me than what the public probably wants. VW recommends 10K oil changes - think that's pushing the limit. Owner's manual should provide more info for do it yourselfer

Review

The Passat Komfort Wagon offers a wonderful balance of design, performance, comfort and safety. We traded down from an 04 Touareg, and have not been disappointed by the fit and finish of this vehicle. The sole Achilles Heel is the powerplant. While peppy and enjoyable on the highway (especially when passing), there is significant turbo lag, especially compared to our other driver, a Saab 9-3 with the same size 2.0 L turbo-charged engine. Additionally, the mileage is not nearly as good as the Saab's, and gear selection in this automatic could be better tuned. The VW shines on design, fit and finish. The leg well is a bit narrow, but seats are comfortable, and leads to a fine day drive.


Best Features

Love the Bluetooth integration for the cell phone, and remote rear liftgate opening. Seats are comfortable. Very roomy storage.


Worst Features

Automatic transmission needs to be reprogrammed. Not a deal breaker, but other carmakers implement this better.
