Nicest car I have ever driven

by Zach B from NAPOLEON Ohio | March 28, 2020

All around the car is on par with what I was looking for in a car. Very reliable, sporty looking, and great on gas. Defiantly will stick with purchasing Volkswagen!

Best car you car buy for the value

This car is sharp looking on the outside and has classy look to the interior. It gets very good fuel milage at around 38mpg but has plenty of power.

Smoothest car that I have driven.

by Kyl from Gilbert, AZ | February 20, 2020

I love my 2018 VW Passat R-Line. For the money I believe it is the funnest and smoothest vehicle to dive for the fuel economy that it delivers. I commute 20 miles per day and average 31/32 mpg. The interior is pretty plain jane which has its ups and downs. I am at 20k miles and it has gone very smooth.
