Very specious, stable and safe car.

2017 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T S

I like my vehicle. So far I have not had any problems with it. It's very stable and has a lot of space. I have to little kids and they have plenty of space in the back seats. Also, carry two strollers in the trunk at all time and they fit perfectly fine and there still room left for more stuff. I've been driving this car for two years now and the only I had to do is change the oil, and do the regular check ups. I would recommend such a car.

Great gas mileage, reliable car.

2017 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T S

I have had no problems with this car. I take it in for regular maintenance and oil changes and never have issues. It handles the road well and the drive is smooth. This is a stick shift and it's easy to drive in my opinion. It's also a diesel and I love that I forget the last time I had to fill the gas tank. I get great gas mileage in this vehicle and have saved a ton of money with it being a diesel.

I love the seat warmers and sports mode.

2017 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T S

Love the seat warmers, rides very smooth. Is quiet and has push button start. Soft leather seats and Bluetooth radio, as well as sports mode that is quite a rush! If you are someone that likes to travel or you just are a very busy person, this vehicle is the right drive for you. The brakes are awesome and the car itself can get you across town in no time.

Great car with a few design flaws.

2017 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T S

Low tire pressure warning system does not specify which tire is low. You have to check all 4 tires every time, and then press a button in the glove box to reset the system to the current pressure. A/c temperature is inaccurate and is relative to the outside temperature. 68 degrees is cold when it is hot outside, but only warm when it is cold out.

- Chloe M

The car has a very spacious trunk. My favorite part is the sunroof and radio.

2017 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T S

Sometimes the Ac doesn't turn on quick enough, especially when it's really hot out. So that's the only downfall. Besides that I love the sunroof, the space it provides, the leather seats, and amount of gas it uses. It is the perfect car for long car rides because of its comfort. I would 100% recommend this car to any one of any age.

- Gabby C

Largest trunk I've seen in a sedan.

2017 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T S

Pros: The best part is the deep trunk which allows us to fit our double stroller and groceries easily. It has good brakes. There is comfortable leg room in both the front and the back. Cons: The glass fogs easily. Once the automatic brakes caused us to stop on the railroad tracks.
