I have recently bought my VW Passat 1.8 TSI SE with Nav. Initially went to buy VW Golf then ended up with the Passat because of the size. I love the interior not being too busy. Very simple and decent. Very fun to drive, I live in Chicago with the temp below zero the car never rattles when you throttle like other sedan do in this segment. never shakes in highway with the heavy wind. Very good torque with this small 1.8 engine for this big of a car. Suspension is smooth. Steering is very light. Made for America with German Engineering.

Love this car....

I traded a 2006 BMW 550I for this car and have never looked back. The BMW was a great ride but the VW is everything as good if not better. I love the styling, rear seat room, styling, and overall ride. I have the TDI and the milage is between 38 and 40 on each fill-up. Would recommend this car to anyone even my Mom if she was still here.

Terrible transmission and turbo

Love the diesel engine - would buy that engine, after emissions fix, again any time. Terribly cheap transmission and turbo systems. We have owned other turbo charged cars and have never had a full one second or more delay before power kicks in. Transmission is better suited for a very small, cheap compact car. Would never buy that again. Sadly, I will give it back to VW when they begin their buybacks in October.

Car is awesome. Nice features in the SEL TDI model and I am very please with my purchase and the performance of the vehicle. Erik Morales at Valley Auto World Volkswagen in Fayetteville is a very qualified and friendly person. Erik knows everything about VW and is an absolute pleasure to work with. One of the best car buying experiences I have ever had in my 30+ years of driving and purchasing vehicles. I cannot tell you how easy it was for me to walk in, discuss options and drive away! 1st time VW owner and VERY PROUD. He went out of his way to educate me, answer all of my questions and ensured all of my needs and concerns were addressed and taken care of. There are many “car salesmen” but Erik is so much more than that. He also has experience with VW Service Department and dealing with customers for years! Such a comforting feeling I have right now with this purchase of my 2015 Passat TDI SEL. Thank you Erik, it was a pleasure!

Drives well and great gas mileage

Ok so here are my pros and cons for the car: Pros 1. Gas Mileage - incredible, am getting close to 600 miles on the tank (Diesel version) 2. Leg room - much more leg room in back than previous sedan 3. Very nice comfortable drive, quiet and good seat controls with lumbar support and you can save your seat settings which is great if you have more than one driver. Cons 1. No seat cooler, only seat warmers 2. No side or front or back sensors but does have a rear view camera 3. Short warranty, we purchased additional warranty and service plan. Overall very happy with the car, we have only had it a few weeks but satisfied with the pros of the car, would have been nice to have the other things listed above though, if not for the Diesel option we probably would have not purchased this car but getting double the gas mileage on other cars is a huge bonus.

Well I have now had my Passat for slightly over 4 weeks and must say I am very satisfied with the vehicle. and pleased with its performance. There are still many things I need to learn because I am an "elderly" old goat but still know what's going on in the world. The sales representative - T. Cook in this case was super, if there was anything he did't explain it was because I missed it. Seriously he addressed all of the major points about the car and to some extent pointed out where it differed from "luxury" cars. In addition, he was not the "typical" car salesperson, that is sell up $$$ to get a larger sale So I can honestly say he did a superb job with me. Finally, the car itself is great and I am enjoying it very much and when it is time for a new lease, I will say that I will go VW again T. Cook you did a great job thanks

I bought my car 1 year ago, and after I bought it found out about the Emission issue, I was told no big deal. Well now my engine light is on, due to air over flow to high. I'm angry that they would sell me this car with these kind of issue, I take it in and have to oil change and do my up keep. I really don't have the time or money for these kind's of issues, they should dealer up and extend the warranty if they new they would have these kind of issues. This is a the 2nd VW I bought from them and have no issue's with my 2013 Jetta, I guess I will have to trade it in for another one. I just upset about the trust, they knew they had this problem and still released it. wrong is wrong and right is right.. what happened to integrity. I'm waiting to find out what are they gonna do about this engine high air flow problem because, I don't they know how to fix it,,,, very disappointing on a new vehicle.... I do love the gas milage, but, what to do with a car that won't work? I normally don't rant, I just don't want to see consumers being mislead like I was, people work hard for their money. I let you know how they plan on resolving this engine problem.

I have had this vehicle for 1 year now and I am still impressed with it. This may sound like a lie but I just drove from Rockford to Grand haven Mi and back with lots of construction on 1 tank of gas. 11 hours of driving. My computer says 41.4 MPG. With the heated seats it helps from getting sore back. Great sound system for factory sound system. This car is quick when needed also. Lots of room. I sell cars for a living and have had many different units. I dont sell new ones so this is not an ad for VW. This is the best that I have had for all around performance and space. Very quite ride also. I know it doesnt look as sporty as some of the other models out there and the inside is fairly bland but that does not bother me at all. It has bluetooth and heated leather seats. I am a big fan...

The scandal may be happening, but i have loved every minute of having my passat. Heater core recall just came out, so you may need to get that fixed, but it handles well. gas can be touchy, but it's been awesome. I have a TDI model, and i love the gas bill.
