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


I just bought this car, with 133,000 miles on it.
This one was very clean inside and out, and all options worked on it.

At 135,000 miles I changed the timing belt
and changed oil with synthetic as recommended.
I am exclusively using premium gas.

Overall, very happy with it. Super smooth and respectably fast on highway.

Very comfy & attractive interior. I am prepared to spend a little more for maintenance than my Japanese cars, but feel it is worth it as the overall build quality is much nicer.

Again, bought it with high mileage, but it drives great.

Best Features

Quiet body/frame. Comfy & toasty leather seats. 2.0 Turbo feels like an electric motor - quiet, smooth, amazing torque. It feels like a Benz or a BMW, without the price tag.

Worst Features

Common problem with heater door behind dash. A little more expensive than average to maintain. Otherwise, no real complaints - excellent vehicle.
