That this vehicle uses premium gas.

Like the room inside the vehicle, driving the vehicle is easy, the look of the vehicle and how I can fill the back with all sort of things since it is a Passat wagon. What I do not like is the repair costs even a oil change is more than most cars and it uses premium gas only.

I love the anterior and how smooth it is to drive.

I really love my car it is the best it gets me to school and back I love the interior, the brakes are sensitive so I can brake fast slow down fast the driving is smooth I love my car and would recommend it to anyone especially for a first time car it was a great choice.

- Serena M

My favorite feature is the storage capacity when hauling a variety of things.

The car has performed beautifully with minimum maintenance. I still drive it quite a lot with total reliability. The features of the car are great although technology has gotten a lot better in the last few years and it's likely that I'll replace it soon.

Air Bags Feb 10, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Feb 10, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16V078000
Summary:
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Golf and Jetta SportWagen, 2007-2010 Passat sedans and wagon, 2012-2014 Passat sedan and Eos, 2009-2014 CC, 2009-2012 Audi Q5, and 2010-2011 Audi A5 Cabriolet vehicles. Upon deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture.
Consequence:
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants potentially resulting in serious injury or death.
Remedy:
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag inflators, free of charge. Volkswagen issued an interim notification to owners on April 12, 2016. Volkswagen owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298. Audi owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834.

Report Receipt Date:
Aug 4, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V483000
Summary:
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Volkswagen CC, Passat, and Tiguan, 2010-2013 Eos and Jetta, 2011-2014 Golf and GTI, and 2011-2013 Jetta Sportwagen vehicles. In the affected vehicles, debris may contaminate the air bag clock spring, a spiral wound, flat cable that keeps the air bag powered while the steering wheel is being turned. This contamination may tear the cable and result in a loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag.
Consequence:
A loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag will prevent the air bag from deploying in the event of a vehicle crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Remedy:
The remedy for this recall is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-822-8987.
