2005 Volkswagen Passat Comfortline 2.0 16v FSI from Brazil
Very good car, well built!!
My car has the digital climatronic, and it seems quite imprecise on regulating the temperature. It tends to let the car get warmer than the temperature that you set on the system.
The usual and very common on VW cars, squeaks and rattles on the interior in places that are almost impossible to access.
Handles very well especially on the roads.
The suspension is very well arranged, but transmits quite a good amount of road noise from the tires. My car came fitted with 16” wheels with 215/55-16 97W tires. I don't know why VW fit the Passats with heavy load tires, they are harder then the normal ones, thus making more noise. My next tire change will be for Michelin’s Energy Saver, awesome tires!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
