General Comments
Bought my 03 plate Volkswagen Passat 1.9 TDi Sport new. Great car, don't regret my choice for a minute.

I wanted a car with space (wife and 2 kids), but with a bit of oomph, and preferably one that did not need refuelling every 5 minutes.

The Passat meets all these needs. Ok, it isn't ever going to leave a half reasonable Beemer at the lights, but mid range acceleration is very impressive; makes overtaking a doddle.

Drove down to Spain last summer in it, what an experience on those fast French A roads, mind you, it was equally at home on the long motorway stretches. This trip provided an average of 52mpg over 3000 miles.

During the time I have owned this car I have taken it back to the dealers once - for a rattle in the roof panel, which was fixed immediately.

Overall, very satisfied with this car. Only drawback is that engine noise within the cabin can become a bit noticeable when around town.
