Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Volkswagen Passat saloon?

There were a couple of early recalls - visit www.vosa.gov.uk for VIN details. The most serious concerns a risk of fire on 2.0 TDI models with the six-speed manual gearbox. The car's ECU also needed a software upgrade.

Oil levels require regular checks - especially on diesel models. If it's neglected, then reliability can suffer.
