2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI: Jump Starts a Plug-In Hybrid

2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI

This morning our 2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI came to the aid of a car with a dead battery. We used the Passat to jump start a Ford C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid, whose battery had died while the car was plugged in charging. Yep, we got a laugh out of that one, too.
