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


First Volkswagen product purchase...absolutely flawless car. Very smooth and Quiet, excellent sound system. Looks larger than it is...same size as Honda Accord....too "vanilla". Drove Ford
Fusion, "felt sloppy" and cumbersome. This car
is a great value. And you should be able to negotiate the MSRP with 10% off. No longer use
Costco program....you can do better yourself,
as Costco is just another"middle man".

Best Features

Build Quality...WOW Solid in every way. Great radio, simple layout

Worst Features

Option for non-turbo larger engine with more horsepower. It is a good engine at 2.5, but could use more boost at start up. The 2.0 Turbo offered in other VW products has too much lag/hesitation at initial start, but then "takes off".
