Great German Craftsmanship

I bought this car with 42k miles on it and it's been great. Very impressive styling. The on-board computer is really simple and easy to use. The basic sound system has great qualiity. Many cool features throughout the car. The turbocharged engine is the same engine in the Audi A4 and you can really feel when the turbo kicks in. I've raced my friend in an Acura TSX which has the same horsepower and i blew him away. When you put it in sport mode, the RPMs shoot up. Plus the ESP (Electronic Stability Program) is the best around and will keep you on the road when you put the gas to the floor. I've had no engine problems but I have had some other problems with: the automatic windows (Only with the front passenger window. It goes down automatically but not up. It can be re-set but that only lasts for one automatic up), the leather on one of the rear doors is lifting off in the center , and a rear door won't open from the inside (as if the child lock is stuck on). Also some of the buttons were loosing it's paint when i bought it but this seems to be a common problem with all passats.

Volkswagen no longer is a quality auto manufacturer. We purchased a used 2006 turbo Passat that has a serious engine design flaw that causes the car to burn copious amounts of oil, causing internal wear and ultimately leads to your engine being destroyed. VW reco gnizes it has a problem but has done nothing to assist those who have purchased one these cars. VW offers a bandaid fix by providing an extended warranty for the intake camshaft, camshaft follower and high pressure pump which is not designed to fix the problem. avoid buying a 2006 2.0l at all costs as you will find yourself buying a new engine sometime down the road.
Words will never describe the power and elegance of the new Passat. Please take a test drive.
VW has out-done themselves
what a great car this new passat is . the passat is now larger more agile and powerfil than previous years and the base line comes extreemly well equiped. i have the value edition ( base ) and i have many amenitys that mose car companys wouldnt dream of offering in a base model. i have the usual power windows, intermitant wipers, stability control, front side and rear side air bags 8 total ( in a base model is almost unheard of) tire pressure monitering system, heated side view mirrors a full functioning on-boerd trip computer wich tells you everything about the car you would ever want to know,
before i bought my 06 i bought an 01 4 motion passat also a great car . but, with the gas prices soaring. i thought it was time to make a change. the 2.0t is a breath of fresh air when it comes to fule saving and has alot of power to put you in your seat . its acceleration is almost like a sports car . agility is amazing, she holds the ground well .
I could go on forever about this car but in short , volkswagen has done a great job on this one * thumbs up 2 them * WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR PPL GO TEST DRIVE ONE !!
This car is a dream to drive.
