One interesting detail would be it needs more service work than I thought

2009 Volkswagen Passat Komfort

Not as reliable as I thought they were. Need more maintenance than I anticipated. The parts in the car are relatively cheap and do not hold up very well.I don't think I would buy another one in the future. I have friends that purchased one as well and they aren't satisfied with the vehicle either. Just isn't the best car for the money

Volkswagen Passat review. This vehicle appears on the outside to look high end.

2009 Volkswagen Passat

It is broken down several times in the five years I have had it. I bought it used. The engine failed and without having a warranty it would've cost $9000 dollars to replace and the vehicle used only cost $11, 000. It does not get good gas mileage and the air-conditioner does not work well. I would not recommend this car.

- Ashley H

don't buy this car, it'll give you more problems than good.

2009 Volkswagen Passat

Always something to fix every couple months. The maintenance is pretty expensive given its in the shop 4-6 times a year with some type of issue. I've had my engine that's needed to be repaired to my electric control panel that been shot. The windshield has leaked before leaving my car with a terrible smell.
