2008 Volkswagen Passat Lux 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


So far, I've owned the car for about 5 months and I bought it Certified Pre-Owned. If you decide to buy a used one,go CPO. The car had 30k miles on it and it's covered up to 50k on minor things and 80k on major items. I have had the car in the shop for 2 items already though- they were under warranty. Noticed hard down shifting- they had to replace the valve cover or something with the tranny. Now drives like a sports car. This car is so fun to drive!!! Sports mode is really fun! I'm married with one on the way so my days of buying sporty 2 seaters is over- this provides the best of both worlds. 2.0T is fun and fast, kinda wish I woulda bought the v6 though, test drove it and it has lots pwr

Best Features

LUX edition- parking sensors, memory seats, real leather heated seats, sports mode, german engineering and handling, quick pickup, looks of it - looks like a BMW w/o the "look at me I'm loaded or want to pretend to be", great front seat room- I'm over 6'3" and I have tons of leg room!

Worst Features

Larger side mirrors, cooled seats, larger trunk
