2013 Volkswagen Passat SE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


This is the fifth VW I've owned and while not the most exciting, it is the highest quality!
Smooth and comfortable, and very roomy.
Back seat passengers are amazed.
A terrific highway cruiser - every VW I've owned is as stable and smooth at 95mph as most cars are at 65.
The 2.5 engine gets a bad rap, as it's more economical in real life than many of the newer turbo engines.
I'm seeing 25 avg in around town driving, and 31 on a high speed trip through Texas.
I shopped against a Fusion 1.6T and was certain the Ford would be my choice, but the quality of the VW shone through.
I'm very satisfied with my choice.

Best Features

smooth ride, good steering feel; wide, comfortable seats; touchscreen radio; roomy interior and trunk; elegant styling (not trendy), and most of all, QUALITY build

Worst Features

stop buying cheap tires - buy Continentals like you used to
