2012 Volkswagen Passat SE 4dr Sedan w/Sunroof (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
i bought this car in July and overall I've been pleased with it EXCEPT for one extremely important thing.
The headlights are terrible.
I traded in a 1999 Nissan altima for this car and never had one problem seeing at night.
Not only did the passat not come with foglights, but the low beams aren't the projector type.
The combination of the two is very poor.
Now I had to go to a specialty shop to inquire about custom headlights just so I feel safe driving at night.
I did a test drive during the day with this car and all the others.
I never even considered this would be a problem.
I called the dealership about it and they don't even make upgrade headlights for the passat in U.S.
