unexpected pleasant surprise
I never expected to do a deal,but i had read alot of good things about the new passat, and went for a test drive.I tested the V6 SEL and i fell in love with it. I've had it for 1 month 1000 miles. I still love it, No problems so far.
2012 Passat SEL Premium
I purchased my 2012 Passat on April 22nd. 1. Infotainment unit was replaced after 2 visits to the dealership. 2. Infotainment continues to not function properly. 3. Driver side door rattles and squeaks upon opening and closing of door. 4. Steering Wheel is not aligned to center. 5. Strutts replaced due to loud noise upon turning left or right at high and low speeds. 6. The dealership has yet to resolve other issues.
Couldn't be happier!
I love this car. After serious comparison shopping, no other car in the class came close in terms of interior size, instrument layout, and aggressive pricing. The car is well appointed, handles and rides nicely, and has a great service agreement. Many reviewers have said is that the styling is boring. Sorry, but I got mine in black/black and it's anything but boring. I'd call it "classic." And it's a design that will stand up over time. In fact the 2012 Passat is an antidote to the excessive curves and swoops of the Japanese makes. Definitely put the 2012 Passat on your list if you're looking for a mid-priced sedan.
More About This Model

The Volkswagen Passat has traditionally been on the fringe of the midsize sedan class. It competes with the Honda Accords and Toyota Camrys of the world, but in the past, its pricing began where its rivals were topping out. On the one hand, this made for an amazingly refined midsize sedan, with an interior quality and driving feel like that of an Audi, but this came at the cost of an uncompetitive price when compared to the competition.

The 2012 Volkswagen Passat has had its price slashed by $7,000 compared to the previous-generation Passat, so now it's on equal footing with its competition. To achieve this more attractive price point, a few items have been left behind in the redesign, however. These include the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, all-wheel drive, bi-xenon headlights, and even rear-seat ventilation outlets to name a few.

At the same time, we've found that the price cut and shorter list of standard and optional equipment don't mean that corners have been cut in the redesign of the Passat's basic package. In fact, Volkswagen has managed to maintain the premium feel of the Passat's predecessor while significantly reducing the price tag.

There is no shortage of good cars to choose from when it comes to midsize sedans, and the differences among them are slight. The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu has been significantly redesigned, yet lacks the interior space of the Passat. The 2012 Honda Accord is a solid contender, but in the lower trims, it doesn't offer as many standard features as its competition. And finally, the 2012 Hyundai Sonata has the most power, offers Bluetooth as standard equipment and has a lower price point.
