ReviewI used to own a Mercedes 300D. I was amazed with what 40 years have done with diesel technology. Compared to my old Mercedes my new Passat does not vibrate at all, and the noise what noise I couldnt believe it was a diesel. Amazing how this car takes off with this little power plan. My old Mercedes took for ever to pickup speed from standing still. However, my new Passat oh man it will easily skid its from wheels with three people inside if you push it to hard. In fact, the Passat TDI serves as a fresh reminder of this: After driving torque-rich diesels awhile, gas engines, even very powerful ones, seem anemic, as if there's a hole in their power curves. Diesels, thus, are addicting. Watch out!
Best FeaturesVery, very good power for such a cute engine zipping fuel at such an efficient rate. I have measured 55 MPG on the highway on my Passat. Just amazing! And it is fast...really,really fast.
Worst FeaturesI have owned it for three months only. None so far.
