  1. I test drove this car today and was VERY disappointed at the fact that none of their Passat trims have HID/Xenon headlights. It's not even an available option! The VW sales manager even said "we are all scratching our heads as to why that option doesn't exist for this trim level". I would have honestly purchased the car if it wasn't for those antiquated halogen headlights. Come on VW this is 2011. So I walked across the street and purchased a new Acura TSX

  2. See this has me frustrated with VW. I own a 2007 VW Jetta 2.5L with a 5-speed manual and it's a pretty decent looking vehicle that's a lot of fun. I love it to death but if it looked like the new Jetta I would've never bought the car. The new Passat, Jetta, and Golf are just flat out boring on the outside. It's such a disappointment. However I'm impressed with the GTI. They're sexy and damn good cars. I test drove one and fell in love. Why can't they all be like the GTI?

  3. @cars2cars Give the Americans a chance (if you haven't already). Chevy Malibu is a great car, only lacking a navigation system, but still packing in a high end interior, great driving mechanics, and a stellar fuel economy (and onStar). Or perhaps the Korean Hyundai Sonata. Just giving some suggestions. I suggest you wait a little while for the Passat and monitor it while it's in America. See if it fails or succeeds. Just my advice.

  4. 800 miles per tank/ 236 ft lbs of Torque, 125 mph top speed on the 2.0L TDI. Now maybe The US market will finally appreciate the Ultra clean TDI Diesel Engine for what it really is. Power/ Performance/Economy and now even more Environmentally friendly. Now- please let's get the Tiguan TDI in the US and we'll corner the crossover SUV market!!

  5. Looks ok but I wish that VW would give there cars more distinctive styling rather than blend in with the other bland-mobiles (Camry, Accord). The Passat of 2 generations ago was fantastic. Audi-like styling and high end interiors made it a stand-out, which is why I bought one.

  6. The reason VW will never have as much sales as toyotas or hondas is not because of the look because VWs are beautiful! And not the price, it's the reliability factor you get when you buy a Toyota and you don't have to pay an arm and leg for maintaining a Japanese car unlike a German VW.

  7. kinda.. uh.. really don't like this new design.. and usually I love vw's

    as long as audi doesn't look like this.. I'll be fine.

  8. In comparison to the crappy Camry and Accord that everyone and there mother drives, it will be much more pleasant to see something that doesn't look likes it's 2 years old once it leaves the factory.

  9. @JshrBs01 I agree. I don't understand why people bash on this car … I think it's gorgeous. And I'd probably prefer it over any American sedan right now. Especially with the Diesel, but also with the gas version.

  10. Why is everybody talking bad about this car…I see nothing wrong with the car. The styling is clean and simple…nothing out of the ordinary.
