The awesomeness of German engineering.
2012 Volkswagen Passat SEL
The location of the manifold absolute pressure is problematic. It usually catches oil, hence the engine light is on most of the time. You can easily clean and fix it yourself, but it is usually a time consuming task. Since it is a German brand's car, the design is for Germany's (or most parts of the Europe's) road/climate conditions. So, you may not have the same performance during summer. In cold weather, it works perfectly. On humid days, the belts usually expand, hence they make noises because they are loose than they should be. The interior is absolutely perfect. The console is easy to use. My next car will be definitely a passat.
