2006 Volkswagen Passat 3.6 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


I've read a lot of reviews before I purchased my vehicle. Noticed that there were lots of issues with the 2006 VW. drove a lot of different cars including a new fusion, and several Japanese cars. I've never driven a 2.0T but typically large cars with an undersized engine and a turbo to help compensate don't do well (repair wise) Have owned my 3.6 for a year now (it's a 5 year old 2006) and it's running spectacular! Nothing but regular maintenance needed. You have to remember that this is nearly a 3k pound car. a 2.0T will not work long term with sporty driving, but if you choose a 3.6 it's an excellent commuter and very fun on the weekends without much time in the shop.

Best Features

Love the premium interior. Looks gorgeous! May not have the wow appeal of an Audi or Lexus, but definitely better than the entry options on either.
