Why the 2008 Volkswagen Passat?

Super power pick up with turbo and smooth shifting automatic.


Responsive handing

Every possible safety system standard equimpent except rear curtin air bags which are only a $350 option. Short stopping distances with good brake feel.

Why Not the 2008 Volkswagen Passat?

Reliability & durability

Minor problems so far such as driver information computer information screen showing inaccurate readings, example reading for average miles per gallon bouncing around from 78 to 08.

Price or payments

My turbo four cost $26,000 with just rear side air bags, heated seats and floor mats as options. About $3500 over a similar Camry and Honda four.
