This is a perfect vehicle for a family.

Since we have had this car I have only had one problem. The a/c plug wasn't hooked up from the factory so every time I ran the a/c the water wouldn't drain which caused the carpet to flood and mold. Once I found out what the problem was Volkswagen immediately fixed the drain and replaced the carpet no questions asked. I love driving this car. It is super comfortable and spacious. This car is my daily driver because it does so well on gas. I am having a baby and this car will be the baby mobile. There is enough room for me to put him and all his toys, books, pack and play, stroller, and much more. I plan on having this car for a long time. I keep it really clean and well maintained. I was used to driving trucks and Jeeps before I had this, now I love driving the Passat. We got a really good deal from the dealership and I have no regrets.

Volkswagen Passat tsi- a great choice for a midsize sedan!

I have had this car for 1 year and it has been a great car. There haven't been any problems with it is performance. The v6 engine is helpful when driving up hills or getting on freeways. The automatic transmission shifts smoothly. The brakes are very sensitive but I like knowing that they work! My favorite feature is the rear view camera. I like that I can see that a small child or an animal is not behind me before I back out of a driveway or parking space. The trunk has ample space for a family of 4. The comfort of the middle backseat is the only negative review that I can give this car. There is a bump where the seat is, which makes it uncomfortable for the person sitting in that seat. Other than that, the Volkswagen Passat is a great family car and I am satisfied with my decision to choose this car.

The wonderful value for the price.

This car is absolutely fantastic. I love it so much that when my last lease was up, I went in and literally got the same car but of a newer year. I rarely have issues with the car, however, the rotors seem to fall short but that may be due to the rough roads in my area. The gas performance is fantastic, average 400 miles per tank, even more when doing efficient highway driving. I feel comfortable driving in this car, safety features are definitely great, and I love the luxury features like the leather seats, and the sunroof, and digital radio as well.
