2008 Volkswagen Passat Komfort 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Loved the car for the frist 15K then the problems started happening. struts, valve bodie, alignment (still not fixed and dealership won't do anything about it) wishield waher fluid tank leaking had to be replaced, horn malfunction, rear window came of of track. these are too many problems for someone who takes good care of their car. aslo it BURNS oil! after 5k of the recommended 10k oil change intervals i'm over 2qts low, VW says thats normal? I have just under 25k on the car and have decided to say goodbye. I could not have imagined this, the car was PERFECT for the first 15K... if buying used watch out for the alignment problem, very comom i'm told.

Best Features

Storage space with seats folded down, great cupholders. Standard stero is nothing to complain about. GAS MILAGE, i get 32+ mpg highway going 70+ MPH, i will miss that, plus the 18 gallon tank i could cruse for 500+ miles per tank. automatic liftgate is nice! can't forget the turbo engine! quick!

Worst Features

build quality, better service deparment (some are better then others), not worth the 30K i shelled out for a new one. (i'm getting 17k on trade in one year later...)
