2009 Volkswagen Passat Sedan
There are 3 user reviews for the Komfort PZEV trim shown below
- Car gets 34+ MPG on the city interstates, comfortable and has more room then other imports from Asia
- Would like to see the MPG improve for city...18-20MPG
Purchased As New
I never really owned cars, always was a truck guy. First car was a 2006 Jetta Diesel(not counting the VW Beattles I had as a kid for fun)...45MPG!! Needed more room so went with the 2009 Passat, car has been great!! 8000 miles of Dallas traffic and it still averages 28MPG overall. I'm a large guy that can't fit in those little rice burners so I like the Gremany cars for their room. The VW has a much smoother ride then my sister's BMW of equal size due to the fact that the suspension, while still being a sporty car, is not as stiff and unforgiving as the BMW and the cost is much less. My dealer is Rusty Wallis and they have been 100% about customer service from the buying to the servicing of the car---5 Star all the way!!
I will never have a need to purchase anything other then VW's as far as a car is concerned!...read morehide

- excellent snow driving and handling, excellent fuel economy, satellite radio receiver included
- the beep to remind you that the headlights are still on is not loud enough
I love this car. I can't wait to get an excuse to drive somewhere, even work!
I got this in late summer but wanted to wait until the snow hit to really test it. It drives so solid, it cuts right through snow, I feel so safe driving this.
The interior just exudes luxury German engineering, I have the tan interior/black exterior. My boss owns a BMW and when she saw this, she was astounded, "wow!"
Back to the safety, a couple of times when it was raining, the ESP safety feature kicked in as I was driving - it was the coolest thing, like God took over or something, preventing me from a possible accident.
The interior nighttime lights are awesome, indigo and red just a way cool factor.
This car feels like a much more expensive luxury car, it's so solid feeling, not like the junk American cars. I won't even get in my hubby's Trailblazer anymore, the driving experience just can't compare. Volkswagen was right with their motto from a couple of years ago, Fahrvergnugen, a driving pleasure that just has no real translation into English.
Plus the Passat accelerates like nobody's business. It's the perfect young, up-and-coming professional's vehicle. I love showing up for meetings driving up in this car!...read morehide

- It looks really nice.......
I had a 2008 Passat and with only 18k miles, the ELECTRICAL sysem completeley mal-fuctioned. It took 3 weeks for them to fix it! It had sooooooooooooo many problems with the engine we had made over 25 service visits to the VW dealership. This car was are family car and we used it on the weekends only. We have never abused this car but it seems it had abused us! DO NOT BUY A VOLKSWAGEN!!!!!!...read morehide
