Ummm.....Perhaps your most reliable safety feature around your kids should be your brain. I also have the 2013 TDI SEL Premium and it takes less than 2 seconds for the backup camera to come on. I also am wondering what your problem is with the "inability to communicate effectively" is. With 2 forms of interface, the Passat is actually the best I found. I will however agree with your 5 star rating...Report it
My camera is VERRRRRRRY slow too!Report it
Truthinator - [non-permissible content removed]. It's that simple. You will notice above that i did not state that I simply back up like a retiree from Florida without looking. What I did say is that you cannot rely on the backup camera -- if that insinuates anything it is that one must rely on other senses. Also, when I first bought this car I was not a victim of the smart phone revolution and all I had was an older Ipod that was not blue tooth compatible and it and the car would not talk well to each other. I have since become a victim and that issue has resolved. However - the backup camera is still way too slow to be the reliable safety feature it is intended to be. VW should fix this issue. That said, the car is still 5 stars.Report it
