2008 Volkswagen Passat VR6 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Traded an 02 BMW X5 and at this point, mind you it's been 3 days, couldn't be happier. The feel of this vehicle will rival any other German made car on the road. The ride is a little rougher than the X5, which is ironic for a car vs SUV comparison, but you "feel" the road which makes the drive that much more enjoyable. Having driven it to work, for the past 3 days, I have put a total of 205 miles on it and am still above 1/2 tank of gas. Nice bonus considering the price per gallon. The features/amenities are definitely high end. Originally a little hesitant about making the switch but the quality/ performance eliminated that.

Best Features

Blue/Red color use on instrumentation. Dynaudio is excellent. Umbrella holder is nice touch. Autohold is excellent for stop/go traffic. Auto up/down for all windows is very convenient. So far everything. Headlights that "follow" the turn are a great benefit.

Worst Features

The only thing I can think of would be auto down for both driver and passenger mirrors when putting transmission in reverse.
