2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI: Phoenix Road Trip!
July 23, 2014
Could you sense a tinge of sarcasm in that headline exclamation point? No? Well, it was there.
Not that there's anything wrong with Phoenix, Arizona, but this hotbed of desert heat is far from my first destination choice. Especially in the middle of summer.
I was being sent there for a backgrounder on the 2015 Nissan Murano at Nissan's proving grounds outside Phoenix in Stanfield. Edmunds car czar Mike Schmidt said our long-term 2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI needed some mileage love, so Phoenix, Stanfield...whatever...off I went.
