Fun, clever little German car
Service Schedule: The car needed the costly 124K service (incl. replace timing belt) - it didn't have it completed when I bought it - maybe that's why it was approx $2K less than typical - make sure you check the service sked before you buy - know what your future costs will be. Now it doesn't need anything (hopefully) but oil changes for the next 100K.
Tiptronic shift is a great option - very responsive.
Great urban vehicle - narrow and tight turning.
Plenty of room, and esp. in the back - Jetta was too small.
Passat was made in Germany - not Mexico like the Jetta.
All windows up or down with driver key lock - smart!
Insurance break due to industry recognized anti-theft.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
