Why the 2006 Volkswagen Passat?

Handling

Firm, responsive handling.

Cargo capacity

Drove the sedan, but were shopping the wagon. Massive space in the back.

Fuel economy

Turbo 4 fuel economy in midsize category.

Why Not the 2006 Volkswagen Passat?

Powertrain performance

The 2.0t seemed over-matched by the mass of the car. Transmission had to shift frequently, even while maintaining speed.

Reliability & durability

This was a used model, several years old, and had not held up well. Lots of rubber coated plastic bits were deteriorating, discoloration was common.
