Best Christmas suprise ever!
By stephenleblanc on
2014 Volkswagen Passat SE 4dr Sedan w/Sunroof (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
The only reason I didn't score a 5 on the "Fun to drive" score, is because I traded in a 2.0T EOS with DSG for it. My girlfriend FELL IN LOVE with a Passat loaner. I would say I'm thrilled with about 99% of the Passat.
Here's the short list of things that, to me, could be better:
the sun visors FEEL cheap.
(In the EOS too)
the stereo sound quality is inferior to the one I had in the EOS.
If this is all a chronic complainer can find, I say it's all good!
Back up camera.
never had one before.
ample room for 5, and you can hide 6 more in the trunk!
This car is stunningly subtle.
It looks great, but doesn't demand attention.
the sound system is a disappointment.
Don't get me
wrong, it's good, but coming from the 2009 EOS with 400W 10 speaker (I think) it is a definite downgrade.
