Came out of a Volvo XC70. This car has personality and is much more fun to drive. Comfort is good. Good acceleration. Mileage is better then sticker. Easily get 30-32 at 70 mph. 33-34 at 60 mph. Average fuel mileage is 26mpg. Kids love the rear door window shade. I am 6'1" and like the front seats. Live in area that doesn't have may Passat Wagons and get many looks.
Handling, great sound system, gas mileage, ergonomics are generally good.
Cruise control design is quirky. Would like seat memory on drive side. Lack of Sirius controls on steering wheel. Comfort package ok, but would like another level up.
