Now That's A Car!
By RheyLEW on


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


Was initially interested in a Mazda6 for a long time. Made the mistake of sitting in a Passat CC first, went to Mazda and wasn't impressed, the German design and meticulous attention to detail is phenomenal. (It's the little things) cleverly designed umbrella holder in door, pull-up window shades, radar for adaptive cc and parking assistance, bi xenon headlights, LED tails, cargo and shopping bag hooks in trunk, heated side mirrors that point to curb when reversing, auto door lock, moon roof, rain sensing wipers that you don't even have to touch, wonderful lighting and dash, power windows all around, 4 cup holders, secret compartments. Powerful v6 engine with paddle shifters! Whooo- weee!

Best Features

Engine/transmission power/performance, interior, exterior, rarity, can pass as a professional or sports car, easily customizable, cockpit feel, Headlights, DynaAudio sound system, trunk space, I can keep going here..

Worst Features

hmm, sequential shifter instead of tiptronic, not great on gas, but I'm coming from a 4 cylinder Camry, I'm almost clueless here..
