Great first car
"Really smooth acceleration and break, easy to customize interior, great trunk space and leg room, nice leather seats, amazing gallon mileage (drove from Coram to Albany and back in one tank). AC vents can break easy if mounting phone holders."

Passat Props
"This vehicle is unassuming but has a restrained elegance that I appreciate. In its control balances and the feel of its switchgear it drives above its class, in addition to providing exceptional passenger space and fairly supportive seating."
Interior

4.0

Spacious and well fitted.
Exterior

4.0

Restrained and elegant in detail.
Performance

4.0

Linear acceleration, not fast but adequate, appropriate for its mission.
Family

5.0

Generous passenger space including unusually good headroom, durable materials, very large trunk, and very good safety ratings.
Cost

4.0

Very cost effective, the more so the longer you keep it as its resale value is not what it should be by the vehicle's merits.
