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


I recently bought a VW Passat 'Komfort' wagon for my wife. The car has been great so far. After 5 days in my Lexus, it's fun to drive my wife's car on the weekend. I really can't ever say I've felt that way about my other cars. If VW can solve some of it's past reliability issues ( and it looks like they are trying hard to do so) I think middle America will 'rediscover' the brand.

Best Features

tight, solid ride. Clean, teutonic look and feel. Leatherette on the wagon looks better than the real thing. Despite comments to the contrary, the 2.0T engine can use regular gas ( my friend who works for Audi let me in on that little secret since the 2.0t is borrowed from previous Audi models).

Worst Features

none at this point
