  1. Yawn……………………….2005 Camary look a like! Really VW, that’s the best you can do??

  2. Lol, I love how excited that woman is. Actually, I’m honestly looking forward to this. Waiting for the features by trims and trim pricing to be released.

  3. I am a proud owner of B6 platform VW passat (yr 2006).I hate to say this… but the new design just let VW’s design philosophy down.I saw it in person at a recent car show event and it may never turn out to be a head turner. The only selling point I see here for VW is the price point at which they plan to sell the new passat. Other than that the fit and finish just does not feel VW quality.

    • I agree with you 110 percent on that!!

    • Mine is a 2008 V6AWD Wagon and I completely agree with you. Exterior looks like a cross between mid 90s Accord and Camry. Interior still looks VW but somehow stripped down. I guess I would reserve final call until after test driving but am NOT encouraged by what I see so far.

      For the sake of sales volumes, they may have forsaken “drivers.” Isn’t that what helped plunge GM and Chrysler towards bankruptcy?

    I heard that all new 2012 VWs will come with standard GPS navigation so the cars can find their way back to the dealers’ service bays!

  5. I don’t care that it suposedly looks bland. TDI, baby!!!!! That’s what matters.
