While I love driving and trying new cars I have no idea about engines or car specs. So here is my review of the VW TDI Passat from a purely housewife, student, bad driving, girl who wishes she was a race car driver- point of view.
|Me and the TDI at the beach. She likes long drives on the coast.|
After a month of the trolley and car rentals with no heart, I was stoked to get back in a car that actually accelerated when I stepped on the gas. It doesn’t take much for this car to get to 65mph (or more) and I liked that. I was worried at first that it was a soccer mom car and wouldn’t handle well. That was so not the case. The Passat was a surprisingly FUN car to drive. The backup camera made it easy to park and the TDI power made it fun to drive.
|This family of three came to admire my new ride. So cute. The little one next to the mom kept falling off the rock.|
|Navigation, a map and a compass… impossible to get lost.|
|This guy was impressed.|
|Super roomy and the interior was plush. I love the suede inserts in the leather. (Bag alert… neon pink Michel Kors Selma Large Messenger Bag)|
Overall I liked the Passat TDI. Not having to fill-up for 400+ miles was awesome. The power and speed made the Passat a fun and sporty drive. The trunk and backseat were perfect to haul my shopping or groceries and school stuff. All of the buttons, nav, map, hands free, satellite, backup camera and touchscreen, while not original, covered every convenience and again made the experience fun. Who doesn’t love gadgets! I am not convince to trade in my big SUV or my sporty two door but if I ever decided to fully go the sedan route I would seriously consider this. A big THANK YOU to the guys at CARDINALE Salinas Volkswagen for helping me with all the buttons and choosing the perfect PASSAT. Check out their website or facebook.
