2014 Volkswagen Passat TDI SEL Premium 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
Having gone through literally a dozen or more of newer type cars over the last decade I can safely say that this car lives up to and exceeds expectations.
No car is perfect and there are a couple of annoyances such as the traction control (too intrusive), or the slow navigation unit; but car is fantastic.
I've had it 2 months and average right at 40mpg all the time.
I just took it on a 1100 mile trip and averaged 42mpg going between 75 and 84 mph.
Also, acceleration is great all around.
This is only the third car I've owned that exceeded gas mileage (others were 2013 Mercedes and 2008 Golf GTI).
Overall the car is solid with no rattles. It's an excellent family car.
