"We had a 2008 VW Passat and was a good car to use. Prior I owned a 2002. After having VW look it over cause it was a used car. I was given the thumbs up on it. It was very clean and had some nice features our other Passat did not. These cars can cost a little more to maintain but the quality is better and not as expensive as owning an Audi but with a lot of the same parts. Dealership gave me a very good deal on it. Good size for safety and good gas mileage with plenty of power when you need it with the turbo motor."
