2008 Volkswagen Passat VR6 4Motion 4dr Wagon AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Never had a VW before. Very happy so far. Unexpected power from this VR6. Very fast off the line, great cornering and smooth when cruising at highway speeds. Love the sport styled "old school" seats- extremely comfortable and roomy and I'm 6'2". Excellent quality, fit & finish, great dash and overall cabin design. Lots of storage too.

Best Features

Power lift gate is very cool, as is the umbrella storage and various storage areas throughout. Stereo is awesome too. Again- the VR6 motor is really fast!

Worst Features

Don't like push button parking brake or push button starter. Cruise control is in an awkward spot. Navigation is slow and very hard to operate (they just need to copy the Acura or Lexus nav system!). Slight throttle lag could be improved too.
