10,000 Mile Review-

2010 Volkswagen Passat Komfort 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)
Review
I was between this and the Ford Fuzion V6. In the end, the entry lux interior won my wife over so hence the Passat. This is a nice clean sedan. The interior is impressive with soft touch dash and clean teutonic lines. All reports of a hesitation at start are correct. It feels like half a second. Drive this car around for awhile before making darts into tight traffic. All in all this thing scoots for a 4 banger. Steering and handling is not on a BMW level of communication but its good, really good for this price point. The cabin is quiet.
Favorite Features
Bluetooth is awesome - truly world class and automatically imports your address book. Standard large touchscreen stereo is awesome - unless your are looking for audiophile performance. I took this on an 1800 mile road trip and averaged 35MPG on the highway. In pure urban driving expect a bit under 20 and a decent mix will average around 26 MPG overall. Comfortable well laid out interior. No Mechanical issues, car in perfect working order.
Suggested Improvements
The cruise control is just in an awkward spot - needs to be totally redesigned. The Goodyear LS tires are expensive but mediocre performers and terrible in snow. I replaced them with Conti Extreme Contact DSW at 7K miles and it makes a world of difference plus noise reduction. Standard floor mats are like felt glued to cardboard. The new Passat is seeking to downgrade the STD feature set - hopefully not too much.
