My wife and I bought our passat in september of 2006. I first of all felt that the price was very steep for what you are getting in the car. For $35,000 my car didn't even come with heated seats. After owning the car for three months I started to get a loud sqeeking noise coming from the front end and I took the car to VW three times and they were unable to fix the problem and the car still makes noise. The radio in the car has extremely bad radio reception and I have to use the CD player to get decent sound. The engine is noisy and the car rides poorly due to the low profile tires. I also must say that there are things about these cars that you are not told at the dealer because they could have an effect on you as to whether or not you will buy the car. The reason I say this is related to the cost of repairs and the reguire fuel option which there is none. The interior has been falling apart. For instance the head liner rattles in the rear and had to be repaired. The windshield wipers hit the body of the car and VW told me that this was normal. I also feel that the service department is rude to the customers when you have problems. I recently traded the vehicle in and the vehicle was upside down $16,000 my jaw hit the floor when I heard this. My insignias on my keys also rubbed off just from normal use and I was told by VW that this is normal wear and tear. Granted I was told this after I owned the car for only three months. My only advice to someone thinking about buying one of these cars is DO YOUR HOMEWORK FIRST and look at all of your options. These cars require 91 octane fuel and synthetic motor oil which is very expensive. The oil change on this car is $65.00 and windshield wiper blades are $35.00. These cars are very appealing to the eye but the mechanical part of these cars is very bothersome, being that you will be in the shop a lot and be inconveinenced because of it. These cars are not dependable and are not a good bang for your buck. I hope that this will help you in your car buying decision. If you are looking for something that will not give you any trouble this is not the car for you. TRUST ME
