2009 Volkswagen Passat Komfort 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
So far, very few problems with 09 Passat compared to 06 previously owned. Small rattle, ipod adapter issue dealership addressed immediately. 3200 miles driven since purchased. Keep checking my oil to make sure don't have same issue as 06 model. Fun to drive compared to Nissan, Honda, and Toyota family sedans. Unfortunately, my experience is that you trade performance, fit/finish for reliability. Keeping my fingers crossed...
ipod adapter, 2.0L engine (TSI vs. FSI), gas mileage, interior fit/finish
Please keep working at making these more reliable. Could be a great car with a little more work. I like my service department and all, but knowing them all on a first-name basis says a lot about reliability...
