Why I love my Volkswagen Passat. Fantastic gas mileage. Superb legroom.

I love my car. It is the first Volkswagen I have ever owned. It gets superb gas mileage. It is a 4 cylinder but drives like a 6. When I am on those out in the country two lane roads I can pass fast and safe. It has outstanding back seat leg room. So I am told. Since I am driving. It handles like a dream. When I am driving the curvy roads of highway 7, the car takes then like a race car. Going the speed limit of course. It has good trunk space. Although the trunk is not too deep it does go back real far. There's enough trunk space to hold the luggage of 4 people. I love the heated seats. I only wish I had a heated steering wheel too. The sound system is awesome. I am hearing things in songs that I never knew existed. It also has a USB port in the glove box between the front seats. The granddaughter loves this since she can plug in her electronic games while she is seating in the backseat.

The engine is smooth and maintains power consistently so that the ride is comfortable. The petals are slightly sensitive but just give it some getting used to and it will become more normal. Its very quiet when running and while idle. It's got great a/c and heat. I am very impressed and satisfied. The car also gets good gas mileage and I have not had any problems with it so far it's been over a year maybe two. The inside is super spacious even though it's not a really big car plus the trunk space is much bigger than you'd think. It would be great for traveling or if you have a lot of commuting from day to day. It's easy. . . Simple. . And overall comfortable whether I am in the front or the back seat.

I really like my Volkswagen Passat , it is a very smooth ride. I love the leather seating, and the heated front seats are amazing. It's also is very easy to get in and out of, and everything is electronic. Including having a few buttons on the steering wheel for volume and radio. Also has Bluetooth, and phone built in. Has a good amount of trunk space for all the desired needs as well. It gets great gas mileage compared to our other vehicles, and Its pretty roomy inside. It does seem to have a few recalls on it, but it is nice that they are fixed free of charge.

Air Bags > Frontal > Driver Side Inflator Module Feb 9, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Feb 9, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16V078000
Summary:
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Golf, 2007-2010 Passat sedans and wagon, 2012-2014 Passat sedan and Eos, 2009-2014 CC, 2009-2012 Audi Q5, 2010-2012 S5 Cabriolet and 2010-2012 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, and will send a second notification when parts are available. Volkswagen will notify owners again once parts are available. Volkswagen owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298. Audi owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834.

Air Bags > Frontal Aug 3, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Aug 3, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V483000
Summary:
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Volkswagen CC, and Passat, 2010-2013 Eos, 2011-2014 Golf, GTI, Jetta, and Tiguan, and 2012-2014 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:
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will install a protective cover over the steering wheel clock spring if the air bag light is off. If the airbag light is on and the steering wheel clock spring requires replacement, dealers will install a new steering wheel clock spring. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall began on January 15, 2016. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-822-8987.

A sealing cap at the fuel rail may fail, allowing fuel to leak into the engine compartment.
Consequence:
A fuel leak, in the presence of an ignition source, can result in a vehicle fire.
Remedy:
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel rails with new parts, free of charge. The recall began February 6, 2015.

Upon deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to explode.
Consequence:

Engine And Engine Cooling > Engine > Diesel May 10, 2017
Report Receipt Date:
May 10, 2017
NHTSA Campaign:
17V309000
Summary:
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain 2012-2014 Passat vehicles, equipped with diesel engines and Direct-Shift Transmissions (DSG). The vehicle's underbody heat shield may not be long enough to protect the right half-shaft grease boot from heat, potentially resulting in a grease leak.
Consequence:
If the leaking grease contacts a heated surface, such as the exhaust system and/or the diesel particulate filter (DPF), it could increase the risk of fire.
Remedy:
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driveshaft heat shield, free of charge. The recall began on July 7, 2017. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 23W5.
