2012 Volkswagen Passat SE 4dr Sedan w/Sunroof (2.5L 5cyl 6A)

Review

I love this car. After serious comparison shopping, no other car in the class came close in terms of interior size, instrument layout, and aggressive pricing. The car is well appointed, handles and rides nicely, and has a great service agreement. Many reviewers have said is that the styling is boring. Sorry, but I got mine in black/black and it's anything but boring. I'd call it "classic." And it's a design that will stand up over time. In fact the 2012 Passat is an antidote to the excessive curves and swoops of the Japanese makes. Definitely put the 2012 Passat on your list if you're looking for a mid-priced sedan.

Favorite Features

Enormous backseat; fit and finish; ride and handling; classic styling.

Suggested Improvements

Bring back the vertically adjustable center console armrest.

One suggested improvement I would add: VW needs to fix the offset steering column. It a good inch to the right. It's annoying and somewhat distracting. Makes you wonder how that one got past the designers.
