    Spacious and frugal

    published

    My first VW that didn't disappoint me. With a solid build and comfort driving, it is also an extremely frugal car to drive with an average of 800km per tank. It comfortably sits 5 grown adults and the boot space is just so spacious- probably one of the most spacious amongst the German made cars.

    The only downside that I have is during take off where by you will need to step on the pedal tamely otherwise it will be having multi jolts before smoothen out.

    OK

    A very nice overall interior and exterior of vehicle. However the servicing costs are very high and should only buy if can afford such costs. You would also run the risk of transmission problems, especially 2nd hard Passats of this vintage.
    Super comfortable, smooth, a reasonable looker, quite running
    Transmission in this model range can wear out faster than many cars in the market (AUD$8K replacement); expensive servicing costs

    Excellent

    published

    I have owned this car (V6 4 motion SE) since it was VW demonstrator vehicle. It has performed brilliantly since, now having covered 77,000 Km. It has been serviced by VW dealer and they have done an good job. It has been over some of the roughest gravel roads in the east of Australia and covered more freeway miles than city miles. Handles gravel beautifully.
    Extremely comfortable and reliable vehicle. Uses 8.5l/100km on the highway. Handles well in wet and dry, have driven through torrential rain on Freeway. Steers positively. Seats comfortable and adjustable.
    Does have a lag in Auto shifting if you have been leisurely driving then need an urgent response in traffic. Bit thirsty in traffic and city driving.
