Beige Bluetooth candy apple

2017 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T SE

The car drives great, breaks excellent. Warning signs are loud and accurate. The car is very comfort 4 door sedan but it's really a lot of space, especially the trunk space which was what I really need. The Bluetooth feature is my favorite, touchscreen and the buttons but I wish it was more added on the navigation. The tire sensor is my least favorite, it does not say which tire is low just states low tire. Gas is fine, regular is what is needed and takes $40 to fill. Has sunroof and leather seats. Not easy to clean seats but has ac but does not blow hard enough.

Issues I have with my VW passat.

2017 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T SE

Issues that I have with my vehicles are the brakes, they squeak and are very touch when you apply brakes the car stops quickly. The interior upholstery is a light grey and everything stains them even which is normal but even cleaning with water stain the upholstery. Also the interior carpet is very hard to get pet hair out so I cannot take my dog to vet or groomers in my car.

Adaptive cruise control will change your road trips!

2017 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T SE

It has blind spot monitor and brakes for me if I don't brake quick enough. It is so safe! The sound system is awesome. The car is fast and so smooth to drive. The adaptive cruise is the best feature I have ever had in a car! When on a road trip because of the adaptive cruise the gas mileage is exceptional. Even around town the gas mileage is amazing!

I love the way it connects to your apple devices.

2017 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T SE

I really like Volkswagen and the passat has a lot of space. The driving is great and had no major issues with the car other than changing the battery etc. The only thing I think they need to improve is to include lights when you are viewing yourself in the mirror. I know that probably the newer models have this feature but mine came without this.

Drive in comfort and safety at an affordable price.

2017 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T SE

The style and the comfort and reliability of the car. The car drives well. I especially like the computer in the car that lets you know when it is time for the maintenance of the car or when something is wrong with the car. The car has a lot of legroom and passenger room as well. It feels very luxurious like I am driving a higher end car.

- Judy G

Feels like a luxury vehicle for a reasonable price.

2017 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T SE

Handles easily, very reliable with a comfortable interior and excellent gas mileage. Not too big and not too small -- a good family car. It feels like a luxury vehicle without the associated cost, and I especially appreciate the Bluetooth compatibility and useful steering-wheel phone controls.

- Paul V

My VW passat that serves me well and all the time.

2017 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T SE

It is a really great car both on the road and in size with potential to carry lots of people to different places with great highway gas mileage and minimal maintenance required all the time to keep you on the road as long as you like. I really love going on trips and enjoying the car.

- Daniel M

I feel I just did in the previous post.

2017 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T SE

It's a great ruby red color and extremely quiet and smooth ride. I have the power drivers seat that is even heated! Love the feature especially in a long commute with a stiff back. However, I do not think I will lease this model again because it's my second and I'm bored with it.
