It's no fun carting a very sick cat from one veterinarian to another. Our 2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI handled the job admirably, though.

When I had to take the cat from our local vet to a specialist in Culver City that I hadn't been to before, the Passat TDI's navigation system proved handy. The turn-by-turn directions in the center MFI display were easy to follow, even for a preoccupied driver. And I didn't have to worry about stopping for gas.

The car's flat seats and wide-opening doors also made it easy to load in the cat's good-sized carrier.
