Tech, comfort, economy
You would love the driving experience, I do mean that on the highway, over 60kph; the gearbox is still a little bit worried me, as it is running not smooth in gear 1 and 2 under 40kph. But other than that, Passat is a perfect car for the family, I am having a B8 Passat Wagon TSI Comfortline. I love it so much (as mentioned, a little bit worried about the gearbox - DSG 7 speed.) 16500km, average petrol consumption: 8L per 100km; carplay, andrio auto; full safety features. btw auto adjustment seat for driver only. lol
132TSI Comfortline R Line Wagon
Great vehicle for our small city family who do some highway travel to visit family. VW have refined the Passat package to a point where it is a very refined drive and feels like a more expensive vehicle. R Line package is pretty good with leather/heated/massage seats, slight lowering etc Ride is subsequently a little bit harsher though. ACC is brilliant for the city commute and fuel economy is v.good at 7 city and down to 5's on the highway. This is quite literally a superb vehicle and clearly the product of much revision.The only downside was having to deal with the VW dealership who made buying the vehicle unpleasant. VW Australia needs to take control of dealership behaviour as they have and are continuing to damage the brand.
Good car let down by reliability issues.
First off, this is a great drivers car - handles well and flexible turbo engine. It's extremely well appointed with both luxury and technology. I have the Luxury and R-Line pack and there is not much else you can get for the money in this class.
I've had the car 6 months and already had numerous faults including:
1. Engine Oil Light after 8000Km, currently consuming 100ml per 1000Km which for a brand new car is appalling. I change cars every 3 years and I've never had any of my other cars need an oil top up between services.
2. DSG went in...
