2007 Volkswagen Passat Sportline 1.6 FSI from UK and Ireland
Love the car, hate the minor faults!
The fuel pump/sender unit went at 13000kms.
There are numerous squeaks/rattles from the dash, along with a really annoying metallic noise from the boot area.
A new clicking noise has just started when opening the drivers door!
The is extremely comfortable (bar the squeaks and rattles).
It looks fantastic, more like an Audi than a VW, and the ignition key always gets strange looks!
The electric handbrake took a little getting used to, but now on hills it's a godsend.
My version is the Sportline, which is lowered and has 17" rims. The car handles fantastic, but I can't help but think the stiffness of the suspension and bigger wheels contribute to rattles, along with a rough ride on bad roads.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
