    Passat 2012 reviews

    I have had to get a new battery once and tires once and oil changes every 10k miles or so and that's it. Quiet, refined, economical and a perfect companion for eating up a thousand miles in a week. With the Jetta upsized and repositioned, it's now the Passat's turn. The design is spartan and timeless. I like the little things like a sunglasses holder and a specific space in the glove box to hold the owners manual.

    Volkswagen Passat - User Reviews - CarGurus

    Volkswagen's set out to completely re-engineer its core products for America, in the hopes of grabbing some of the momentum that's vaulted South Korea's Hyundai and Kia into the heart of the mid-size sedan market. With the Jetta upsized and repositioned, it's now the Passat's turn. German-engineered is a key phrase for the VW Passat, the company's first American-made vehicle since The Passat's certainly gained status in some important ways.

    The rear seat is tremendous, bigger than the bench in an Azera or an Avalon, with the kind of ease of entry and exit we're used to getting in a minivan. The trunk's also pretty vast. Road manners are as close to the outgoing Passat as they possibly can be, given the stretch in wheelbase--and the automaker's TDI diesel wows even hybrid drivers with an estimated mpg highway fuel economy rating.

    Like the Jetta, the Passat's taken a step back or two from some of the heights of VW's recent past. Its sheetmetal can read elegant and timeless--or in the wrong color or from the wrong angle, dull. The interior's better honed and more finely graded than the one in the Jetta, but only roughly the equal of the cabin in a Fusion or an Altima or a Legacy, and nothing like the outgoing Passat's tightly grained, rich-feeling environment.

    As it keeps options and models to a bare minimum, Volkswagen's omitted some features in some combinations we'd like to see, even as options. With either of the tested engines, acceleration's mid-pack at best. For that price, you'll get a sedan with nearly miles of driving in each tank of fuel, and limousine-like rear-seat room, with a dash of the handling brio you'd expect from a Volkswagen. If those attributes top your shopping list for a new family sedan, the Passat rules--knowing there are better values, better lookers and better straight-line performers out there, but none bigger.

    In , Volkswagen admitted diesel engines in this model illegally cheated federal tests and polluted beyond allowable limits. As part of unprecedented settlements with federal and state governments, Volkswagen agreed to buyback from owners diesel-equipped models of this vehicle.

    Owners of affected vehicles can enter their VIN numbers to see if their cars are eligible for buyback. Volkswagen wants you to see the new Passat as an island of placid, timeless design, and when it's parked side by side with the competition, it holds true. When it's on its own, though, the Passat can appear a little distant and plain. Each time you read the Passat's side view and study its surfaces, you'll see echoes of some distant VW--mostly, of the old Quantum sedans, and maybe the Chinese-market Santana.

    There's a common outline with the Chevrolet Impala, and it's nearly the same size but far more cohesive than the Honda Accord. No matter what, you notice the starkness, compared to the Sonata and Optima and Fusion and Altima, and it can read a little dull. The long glass in the rear doors flattens out the shape in an unflattering way, but the clean take is expertly detailed up front, and almost Volvo-like at the rear pillars.

    VW thinks this look still will look good in a few years when flashier themes have waned, and we're inclined to agree--even if that runs counter to the American idiom. The cabin's prime assets are divided on a north-south axis. Above the shoulder line, the Passat wears nicer, more tightly grained plastics; the harder, open-textured stuff lives beneath that line.

    The dials are big and readable at a glance, with thin chrome bangles to set them off the dark backdrop. Woodgrain or metallic treatments panel the broad dash, and the ancillary controls have logical dials placed in logical places.
