2006 Volkswagen Passat 2.0T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


expected more when purchasing new 2006 Passat, previous car was the new beetle and a friend had the 2001 Passat, when changes were made that must have cut costs with interior design and electrical system.
Within 2 years, the AC failed, front headlights, interior lights and service buttons were always on.
Also, after two summers of heat the ac controls, stereo buttons and auto windows had blistering and then peeling.
Looks like a pos!
Still drives fair considering the electrical system is out of whack.
Last time I will buy new - over rated, definitely last time buying VW.
Best car ever was Lexxus.
the guy still driving his 2001 with 185,000 miles plus.
Buy new VW & good luck.

Best Features

v6 Turbo, gas mileage and stereo.

Worst Features

improve interior quality, trim and exterior plastic parts. Ha!
