2016 Volkswagen Passat Expert Review
My Passat is the queen of cars!
My VW Passat is very quiet when I am driving. We went to Las Vegas and back from San Diego on one tank of gas. It is a medium size car and very easy to parallel park. It has room for grand kids in the back seat and has plenty of legroom in the passenger front seat. The windows automatically roll up and down with a push of a button. The steering wheel can be adjusted for the needs of the driver. We nicknamed our car Queenie. The grand kids like the name and love to go on trips with Queenie. Giving her a name personalise your car as one of the family. The grand kids don't want to ride in any other car because they do not have names. Queenie has soft interior cushy seats for long rides. Grand kids can nap while on long trips. The gas mileage is insane and the best mileage for any vehicle I have owned. Am in my 70s and have owned 10 cars in my life. Three of them have been Volkswagen vehicles. Several young adults have learned to drive with Queenie being the instructor. Now they all want a Volkswagen for their first vehicle. Queenie loves parking garages because she gets to park with other cars. Being social she makes friends with other cars and especially likes big trucks. The grandchildren who are now teenagers get to compare Queenie with all other vehicles by size, style, available colors, interior decor, driving ability regarding turning radius, wheel treatments, dashboard design, interior lighting, and ease of using the steering wheel. We have 16 grandchildren who may all become Volkswagen owners just because of their relationship with grandma's car, Queenie.
2016 Volkswagen Passat. Great family car, very spacious and great gas mileage.
The performance on my 2016 Volkswagen Passat is out of this world compared to my previous cars. It drives like a dream. My particular model is turbo charged and you can be driving at 90 mph and it handles so well you do not even notice it until looking at the speedometer. The car handles the road incredible and in all driving conditions other than snow and that is only because of the location in which I live. The Passat has incredible gas mileage both city and highway. The cabin is very spacious and features a touch screen radio that is Bluetooth capable as well as USB and SD card slots. You can also use your phone through your stereo system. The sound system is wonderful and for someone like me who loves music, you would love this stereo system!! The trunk is super spacious as well and my favorite part is the trunk has a hidden button you can press to open it that way you're not shuffling all your stuff to try and hit the button on the remote. You will not be disappointed if you purchase this vehicle. I am 1000% happy with my buy. I hope you will be as well!!
The gas mileage is great. I don't know the exact amount of mpg it gets, but with my 2010 Jetta I was refueling about once a week or so, whereas now I'm only refueling about once every 2 weeks of so.
I love the technology options, from heated seats and controls on the steering wheel for radio and more, to Bluetooth and automatic controls for my seat. The moonroof is a great bonus, as are the center console bucket and rear middle seat pull down for an armrest and cup holders. The entire interior of the car and trunk are very spacious, and the leather seats are quite comfortable. The valet key to lock the glove box is great for keeping items safe when I have to leave them in the car, and the digital reminders are very helpful, especially when low on gas and it estimates how many more miles can be driven. The gas mileage is amazing, so I only have to refill about once every two weeks. Also, I love that there are digital numbers listed for the air temp and speed, so it's much easier to tell what each it. Lastly, the number of ports for phone chargers is extremely helpful.
