Nicest automobile I have ever driven!

2012 Volkswagen Passat SEL Premium

Nicest car I have ever owned. It is safe comfortable, roomy, easy to drive, and gets good gas mileage. Being a mid-size car, it carries four people comfortably. And being a German car, it has an incredibly different feel than any American car. I cannot believe I have waited so long to own a Volkswagen!

Relaxing car to drive, and is multi-functional.

2012 Volkswagen Passat SEL Premium

Passat has incredible amount of trunk space which is capable of fitting several large size luggage bags. Back seats are incredibly comfortable with a excellent amount of leg room. Dual A/C and heating as well as heated seats with leather interior is very nice and provides for utmost comfort.
