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


I have a BMW X5 and traded a Merc C280 4 Matic for the Passat. The Passat is the exact size of an E350, but half the price. You give up rain sensing wipers, memory seats, automatic headlights and a power rear sunshade. You get just as good build quality, similar performance in crash tests, 10 more MPG, free scheduled maintenance for 3 years, and $30,000 in your pocket. The sales experience was much better than Mercedes. I have no regrets. I love this car. What will I do with my $30,000? Good time to invest.

Best Features

The turbo engine, the sound system, the hold feature, the quality and design of the interior and exterior - looks like an Audi, built in Germany by 75% German parts and a Japanese Transmission, the 6 speed tiptronic transmission, the interior and cargo space, the folding rear seats.

Worst Features

Grippier and quieter tires, memory seats, automatic headlights.
