"I’ve had this Passat for 3-years. Besides being the most reliable car I’ve ever owned, it returns 27-30 MPG quite consistently. It has tons of space inside—the rear space is like a large S-Class Mercedes legroom wise. The trunk is large. It’s quick enough—actually fast on the highway. Seats are very comfortable. It could be a bit quieter, especially road noise, and the engine sometimes sounds like a tractor, but all in all small issues compared to the overall value. The upholstery, paint, and overall condition of the car holds up well—after it’s washed and waxed it looks like new. Plus, it’s built in the USA, so I’m driving American! Highly recommend Passat SE or SEL. "
