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


I've owned mine since June /09. I was skeptical at first - somewhat odd looks, VW reputation for marginal reliability, not all the luxury I really wanted. However on test drive changed that. The 2.0L turbo engine is fantastic - quick, responsive, pulls very hard when you mash the throttle. The 6 speed transmission is mated perfectly to it and is smooth and accurate in shifts. So far, so good. I've got 36K+ miles of mostly highway driving and no breakdowns/strands/failed starts. No maintenance costs either with first 2 years covered. Some trim pieces have broken due to little kiddie fingers.

I would highly recommend this car for anyone looking for an alternative to ridiculously oversized SUV

Best Features

Without a doubt, the power tailgate is the best feature here. Always a lifesaver when I have my hands full returning from the store. SAT stereo is good, seats excellent for long drives, interior fit and finish is good.

Worst Features

iPOD integration needs improvement - very limited functionality and no charging while plugged in - what??
