2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI: Will the Bike Fit?

My bicycle was stolen recently. I'll spare you the details, but there was a lot of pouting, and the bike needed replacing. Summer is in full swing and I haven't spent nearly enough time outdoors, so I enlisted the services of our 2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI to check out a second-hand bike from an ad on Craigslist.

No surprise, the bike fit without any issues.

I used the quick-release on the bike's front wheel, and got it in the trunk without any fuss. There was plenty of room to spare for more cargo or even a backseat passenger if the need arose. If I needed to haul a second bike, I'm sure a game of trunk Tetris would ensue and I'd eventually be able to fit that in as well.

I'm happy to have wheels again, and my next stop in the Passat will be the bike shop, where I'll pick up a stronger lock.
