2012 Volkswagen Passat S PZEV 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)


I also own a 2008 Passat 2.0T which I leased for three years and decided to purchase last year since it is such a great car.
Just leased our new 2012 SE with roof last week and so far so good. This a totally different car from the B6 model (2006-2010), a good size family type sedan.....more conservative but still high quality and distinctive. Although now made in the U.S>, still has that German solid feel and look.
We only have a 150 miles recorded so far and all is fine. No rattles, no wind noise.
Will update at 1000 miles.

Best Features

Still a high-quality looking interior. Excellent paint. Well laid out interior. Very comfortable seats with lots of travel for a tall driver. More than enough rear seat legroom. Very refined and fairly quiet. Good size trunk. A car you can enjoy driving.

Worst Features

Larger center console storage. Center console armrest is too short. Provide floor mats as standard equipment. Provide a locking gas filler door. Provide larger tires.....215's are a little narrow. Provide two-way sun visors.
