2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI: 5,000 Miles

March 11, 2014

2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI

Our 2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI recently hit the 5,000-mile mark and it's been a smooth ride so far. No problems to report and plenty of compliments on its smooth, quiet engine.

As the miles have piled up, the overall fuel economy has slowly risen to just over 27 miles per gallon. Not exactly TDI territory, but not bad for a sedan of its size.

The jury is still out on which Passat we like better. The TDI's mileage is hard to beat but the power isn't always there when you want it. There's more noise, too, and those dirty pumps don't help its cause either. We'll see how the TSI fares at the 10,000 mark to see if it starts to earn any converts.
