2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI SE 4dr Sedan w/Sunroof, Navigation (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)


I've had this car for just over one year, but have already put 41k miles on it.
Had a very small problem early (round 3k miles), where the passenger seatbelt light came on.
Dealer fixed it and I've had no problems since.
I'm averaging 41mpg (up and down hills/mountains) commuting to work, and I've gotten as high as 55mpg on "normal" trips.
MPG under city conditions not as good (avg maybe 32-36), but still not bad.
The more you stay on the highway, the better your mpg.
Good leg and shoulder room for tall people (I'm 6'3).
Seats could be a little more comfortable, but maybe it's because I sit there for longer periods.

Best Features

Gas mileage. Simple, but nice style

Worst Features

One "wired" thing - a cracking sound comes from the window area. I thought it was the window - nope. The plastic piece beneath the window/dash makes the sound (particularly when it gets hot).
