2007 Volkswagen Passat 2.0T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Just inherited an '07 Passat which is a lovely car but don't know if I would have chosen to purchase it. The first ordeal was the keys had been lost and the car had been garaged for 2 years. It took 3 trips (of 120 miles round trip) to visit the nearest dealership to get "keys". First I ordered a little black plastic thingy that had to be programmed to the vin# ($67) to open the car - no keys found inside. Then I had to order the outer remote key ($130) THEN I HAD TO TOW THE CAR to the dealership to have it programmed all together!!!!!! The entire ordeal took one week and cost me more than $500!!! SO DON'T EVER, EVER LOSE YOUR "KEY"!!!

Best Features

Exterior look, trunk space, acceleration, gas mileage

Worst Features

Very uncomfortable driver seat if you are short. Lots of road noise. Car always locks itself so I have to constantly unlock it to let passengers in/out
