Pros

Class-leading performance; extensive safety features including rear side-impact airbags; the four-cylinder model's fuel efficiency; the wagon's cargo space.


Model Highlights

The Volkswagen Passat is available in two different body styles for 2009--a sedan and a wagon. Both are offered in just the Komfort trim level and come powered by a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that generates an impressive 200 horsepower and 207 ft-lb of torque. Power is delivered to the front wheels through a 6-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission.

The Passat sedan offers a modest 14.2-cubic-foot trunk, but the wagon has a cavernous 35.8 cubic-foot cargo space, expandable to more than 61 cubic feet with the split-folding rear seatbacks down. The wagon includes a 12-volt power outlet in back, along with a power-operated hatch.

All Passats include Volkswagen's electronic stabilization program (ESP) with electronic differential locking, which helps maintain stability and traction. Anti-lock brakes are also standard and include brake assist for more effective emergency stopping, plus a brake-wiping feature to keep them dry in wet weather. Six air bags are standard, including side-impact front air bags and side-curtain bags for outboard occupants. Rear-seat side-impact air bags--a feature not widely available in this class--are optional.

Passat Komfort models come nicely equipped with power sunroofs, daytime running halogen lights, 12-way power heated driver's seats, brushed stainless interior trim, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel with Tiptronic controls, cruise control, air conditioning, and much more in the way of luxury and convenience features.

Options on the Passat include several body add-ons like spoilers and ground effects kits, as well as a revamped Navigation Infotainment Package, which features a 30GB hard drive, DVD playback, USB flash drive port, and high-resolution touch-screen display.


Model News

For the 2009 Passat lineup, the Komfort trim remains for both the sedan and wagon. Gone are the Turbo, Lux, VR6, and VR6 4Motion trim levels. The Komfort Passats are powered by VW's 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder.

New exterior colors for 2009 include Island Gray Metallic, Cobalt Blue Metallic, and White Gold Metallic. Adaptive front lighting has been dropped. Volkswagen's electronic stabilization program (ESP) is now standard.


Value Writeup

The 2009 Volkswagen Passat's standard turbocharged 4-cylinder engine gives it acceleration on par with many V6 mid-sized models, while it also delivers impressive fuel efficiency of 32 mpg on the highway. Rear side air bags, a feature not widely available on mid-sized sedans, are available as an option. And for those seeking more cargo space, the wagon, with its stellar mileage and cargo-hauling ability, is a great alternative to sport-utility vehicles.

Summary
VW IS RECALLING 130 MY 2009 PASSAT, PASSAT WAGON, AND PASSAT CC VEHICLES. SOME VEHICLES MAY HAVE AN ELECTROMECHANICAL STEERING GEAR CONTROL UNIT THAT CAN MALFUNCTION DUE TO A DAMAGED CAPACITOR. IF THIS MALFUNCTION OCCURS, THE DRIVER'S STEERING INPUT IS NOT PROPERLY PROCESSED BY THE SYSTEM AND THE VEHICLE MAY NOT RESPOND AS THE DRIVER INTENDS. THIS DEFECT CAN ONLY OCCUR IMMEDIATELY AFTER VEHICLE START-UP WHEN THE STEERING WHEEL IS MOVED FOR THE FIRST TIME AND AT SPEEDS LESS THAN 5 MPH.

Consequence
DRIVER ATTEMPTS TO OVERCOME THE SYSTEM DURING MALFUNCTION WILL CAUSE (1) VIBRATIONS IN THE STEERING WHEEL; (2) THE STEERING SYSTEM MOTOR TO TURN OFF; (3) THE RED STEERING SYSTEM MALFUNCTION INDICATOR LIGHT TO ILLUMINATE; AND (4) AUDIBLE WARNINGS TO CHIME. A MALFUNCTIONING STEERING SYSTEM COULD LEAD TO A CRASH WITHOUT WARNING.

DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE STEERING GEAR IN THE AFFECTED VEHICLES. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR ABOUT DECEMBER 5, 2008. OWNERS MAY CONTACT VW AT 1-800-4822-8987.

If the fuel pump fails, the engine will stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel pump control module, free of charge. Remedy parts are currently unavailable. Interim notices informing owners of the safety risk are expected to be mailed on October 13, 2017. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
