Pros: Stereo, handling, comfort
Cons: TDI issues that are still unresolved
I bought a TDI Passat back in March of 2005. I took it on a long 2000 mile road trip soon after. There is an issue that started on that trip. The computer or the fuel system has been acting up ever since. The car chugs or sputters like it wants to die. I had the problem checked in June and have had it in to the service department 3 other times since. The dealer has had my car for a total of 42 days since and still cannot find the problem. I am in process of going through the Colorado Lemon Law procedures. I loved my car for the limited time that I had it and the mileage was great. I got 40 MPG on the 2000 mile road trip at 70+ MPH.
