2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI SE 4dr Sedan w/Sunroof (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)


I bought my 2013 Passat SE-TDI new in April 2013. I've put 60,000 miles on it since then. My daily commute is 35 mostly highway miles. We've taken the car on a variety of week-long road trips (from D.C. area) -- to family, to the mountains, to the beach, and everywhere in between. I still average 37 mpg per tank in mixed highway/local driving. On long road trips, with primarily highway driving, I average in the mid-40's mpg on a tank of gas. It's an excellent cruising car, although the seats are a bit hard. I haven't noticed the road noise problems others talk about. Haven't had a single mechanical problem since I bought it. To me, the design is attractive inside and out. I don't know how the problem with the diesel emissions control computer program will affect its resale value. However, I plan to drive the car until I retire (five years down the road), so this isn't a major concern for me. I highly recommend this car.
