    My car

    This car is fantastic. I have owned Vectra's, Mondeos and BMW 3-series, but nothing beats the Passat overall. I love this car, especially in the ink blue in Sport model. The Passat is also really well equiped, with all the luxuries that more expensive cars don't have as standard.

    Take a look at the Passat, you WILL be impressed!!

    My car

    A good looking car, especially in silver with alloys.

    I ordered the SE and got a free upgrade to the Highline, which included heated leather seats, heated screenwash, indicator mirrors etc.

    The ride is smooth, a little wallowy on sharp corners, with a good solid feel to it, and positive steering.

    I do mix rural, city driving and average 31mpg, which I think is a bit heavy. I leave the computer on, which gives average mpg for the journey and reminds me to take the foot off occasionally.

    I have previously owned six astra/cavalier/vectras from new and this compares favourably with all of these (except for the Astra GTE, but I was younger then!)

    Looking forward to the new model and I will definately buy again.
