2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI SE 4dr Sedan w/Sunroof, Navigation (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
Review
Purchased this car in March 2013 after starting new job with longer commute (about 80 miles a day). Have been impressed with MPG's for this car. My overall average for the car has been almost 45 mpg. I have found the mpg display in car to be about 2-3 miles off (i.e. shows 49, in reality 46-47 when checking at fill up). The car is comfortable to drive, handling is reasonable (it's no sports car but at same time it's not a Buick from the 1990's either). The interior materials are above average. The navigation system is OK but lags behind the latest technology. The DSG transmission is quick, the only complaint is when you stop and suddenly accelerate, it can stumble for a second or two.
Favorite Features
The fuel mileage is fantastic even with diesel fuel cost compared to regular gasoline. Keep in mind that each 10 cents per gallon difference in price equates to about .70 mpg difference. Example - My TDI averages 45 mpg. If my diesel cost per gallon is 50 cents higher per gallon than regular gas, I would be averaging the equivalent of 41.5 mpg in a regular gas powered car (.50 x .70 = 3.5; 45-3.5 = 41.5). T
Suggested Improvements
Update navigation system to accept voice commands and have current traffic conditions on it.
