1rst VW: Extremely Roomy, Insane MPG
By wilsonbrown on
2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI SEL Premium 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
This car has as much room as an Audi A8 and the MPG of a much smaller car. Getting on average 42mpg. On highway, can get 56mpg on long trips.
There is a tremendous amount of room in the trunk. I can drive with the seat at my regular driving position (I am 6'3") with my brother (6'2") behind me and have 4" to spare.
Turbo adds sufficient power when needed. Fender stereo system is excellent and bluetooth interface works great.
GPS is slow...very slow. No voice entry for addresses.
Backup camera takes a while to come on when initially starting vehicle; takes a while to turn off after driving forward.
Stereo sounds terrible in back seat.
Drivers side seat does not fully recline (only 65%).
