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


Review

I absolutely lived the accelaration of my Passat! The steering too was very responsive and car handled really great. I didn't kind my work commute or road trips because the car was comfortable and the sound system was good. If Volkswagen had honored the extended warranty instead of making me shell out $110-125 in diagnostics tests every six months, I never would have sold my Passat AND would have purchased another Volkswagen.

Review

I bought my '09 2.0T with less than 30K. Never put anything but synthetic oil and premium gas in the thing. It was a dream to drive until I started blowing ignition coils close to 80K. At around 103K it started dumping oil and coolant - so much it was embarrassing to park it anywhere. Took it to two reputable shops - they both told me it wasn't worth fixing. I just let the thing go at 106K for $2,500 as a trade in.

Review

I bought this car new for my wife and have never had any but normal wear and tear issues. Living in a snowy climate I did have to change the tires but other than that a great car. Performance is great. It has a good ride and a lot of standard features. I chose this car over Toyota and Honda.

Review

The Edmunds review is spot on. The car is fun to drive, sporty and yet very comfortable. I love this car, but within two months it has broke down on me twice to include a fuel pressure regulator and a water pump. Luckily it was certified pre owned so out of pocket costs were minimal. I take great care of this car and maintenance it myself every 5000 miles with synthetic oil and have already replaced air cleaner. Hard to enjoy the car if it will keep breaking down and im only at 55000 miles. Plenty of room in the back with 2 kids and the trunk is huge. I can fit large strollers among other things.


Best Features

interior, engine power, smooth ride and handling


Worst Features

road noise is awful and reliability issues
