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


My wife has a 2002 model with 140000 miles that appealed to me more than my 2001 Camry which is simply reliable transportation with nothing extra. I looked at all of the 2009 Models (Camry, Accord, TL, Altima, etc.), and I was sold. The Passat has more standard features than the loaded Altima and Camry. I have averaged over 27 mpg for the first 10k miles which were mostly highway. The gas mileage in city driving is closer to 18 because I like the turbo. This car really feels a step above its major competitors (Camry, Accord and Altima) without the extra cost of a comparably equipped model (if the competition even offers the features). VW seemed more willing to negotiate on price

Best Features

Turbo and acceleration, trunk (useable space, grocery hooks and mat kit), built in window shades, horse power to gas mileage ratio

Worst Features

Better factory tires, more luxurious material for the interior, power passenger seat and driver seat memory
