Great Car
By belaircarguy on


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


Traded my 2009 Jetta for a manual (5 speed) Passat SE.
Car is well built, good visibility, and quite on the highway.
I would say the ride is medium firm, as compared to the Jetta, which was firm.
Seats are very comfortable for long trips, with no backaches after a 3-4 hour journey.
Huge trunk, and giant backseat with loads of room.

Best Features

Love the HD FM radio. Although the car has Sirius radio, I have not subscribed after six months. The HD FM is great, with crystal clear sound and a surprisingly wide range of HD stations in my area. The bluetooth is top notch, with the ability to dial the phone right from the radio screen. Much safer than having to fool with the phone.

Worst Features

Wanted a sunroof with a manual transmission. VW says NO. Had a great sunroof installed at an aftermarket facility, and am now happy. What's up VW? I need to drive an automatic transmission to enjoy the sunshine?
