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.

A Passat looks great w family on vacation or just a single man. It's just right.

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.

Volkswagen passat: high styling, high performance, high fun!

The passat is an extremely sturdy vehicle, and yet has incredible performance for a midsize sedan. The 6 cylinder engine provides amazing power for maneuvering, overtaking other vehicles, scaling mountainous roads, and just plain fun. The interior is filled with luxury amenities, and has fantastic legroom. The trunk is very spacious, with twin fold-down seats, making the passat very useful for occasional hauling of longer items. The sound system is top notch, with connectivity to a variety of devices as well as an integrated 20GB hard drive for storing music. High comfort, high performance, high elegance in styling, high fun. The passat is essentially and Audi 6 for half the cost.
