2009 Volkswagen Passat Sedan Komfort 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

Just got the car. Surprise by the power. Fun to drive but wife having problem with turbo and a lead foot. I had a 05 TDI Passat before. This is bigger. Miss the mileage of the diesel. Tires are expensive because of the 17" wheels and they are a summer thead. Needed snow right away. Comfortable and a better car for me than the CC. Did not like the low roof, rear view mirror or performance of the CC. There is a lot of leg room front and back. Wish it had blue tooth, homelink, and memory seats.


Best Features

A lot of leg room, comfortable set, nice lay out of interior, power strong for 4 cyl. Neat place in glove box to store manual. large trunk and full size tire.


Worst Features

Cup holder could be better placed like in the 05. Include bluetooth. Should have memory sets. Needs to have a special bolt included to help with tire change. should have an initial 5K oil change. wife can't see outside temp or clock.

Review

Purchased on September 12th, 2009. Test drove BMW 328,335; Mercedec Benz 300, 350; Acura TL; Infiniti G37. Although all of these cars were great, I found the perfect mix of driveability and fun factor in my Passat. I only have about 750 miles on it right now and I am trying to break- in the car as gently as possible. But you can feel the surge of power when you just tap the accelerator. So far I've had no problems. VW offers a 90- day or 6K miles free check up, which I intend to to take advantage of. Since I have not taken it on a long trip, I do not have true HWY mileage; however, so far, I am averaging around 25 mpg with 60/40 Hwy/city.


Best Features

steering wheel control buttons, the white multifunction display, ergonomics, DVD touch-screen navigation with 20 GB of space for music, USB interface, HDHC card slot; driving position; acceleration; tip- tronic transmission


Worst Features

please make the blue-tooth with all features as standard; tune engine to crank out 250 HP/300 ft-Lb torque; memory seats; panoramic sunroof;

Review

Almost 4 month and still so fun to drive. Good in gas. Excellent choice from all the cars we tested.


Best Features

Power and handling. Fun to drive.


Worst Features

Aluminum wheels could be better quality. Got few stone chips and winter salt can make this worst. I will get winter rims to save the originals.

Review

Own this car for one month. It is truly fun to drive Passat compare to other imports. Love the look inside and out. It drives like 6 cylinder car, thanks to turbo. Consequently, it consumes gas like 6 cylinder. I average 22 to 23 mi/gallon on 60 freeway/40 local. My old 2000 Maxima was better than that! I had to check the car with a local dealership for rattling noise from driver side glove box and door panel. It was fixed once and came back. So it's been at service twice for the same issue. Hope this problem won't come back.


Best Features

Int/Ext look. Domestic cars can never come close to German design. Power and handling. Interior materials.


Worst Features

Homelink Better Fuel Mileage (it's too thirsty!!)

Review

Super vehicle especially for the price. Standard features, build quality and performance is something I would expect in a much higher end vehicle, The turbo makes the gas pedal like a hair trigger on a gun, the attention to detail and quality materials is far superior to this cars competition. Something as simple as an umbrella storage compartment built into the drivers door are the small touches that really make the vehicle a standout aside from what Ive mentioned.


Best Features

everything


Worst Features

headlights turn on automatic at night
