2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI SEL Premium 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)


I purchased this 2013 TDI SEL Premium in October 2013. It already had one owner and 32k miles. I now have 45k miles on the car. Fuel mileage is about 40 MPG with 60% hwy 40% city.

Best Features

- Bluetooth

Worst Features

Needs: - Full leather seats - Navigation is a nightmare. Needs faster chip and option for QWERTY keyboard along with options on what information to put in first. Need to eliminate the "extra" choices for locations. For example I am around Tampa. Sometimes it shows the county as incorporated and sometimes unincorporated. That is a ridiculus choice. - Backup camera comes on after I have already put it in drive. - Transmission should not require $300 service @ 40k miles. - The brake assist for "hill" starts is not needed in most areas...Florida...but I cannot turn it off. - The phone system keeps telling me is cannot install my phone book...every time.
