Model Highlights

There are two versions of the Passat, a wagon and a sedan, that are nearly identical but for the back half of the car. They both have an inline 4-cylinder engine with 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. Though it's disguised as a sensible family car, the Passat reaches 60 mph from a stop in 7.4 seconds, and has an electronically limited top speed of 130 mph. It uses a 6-speed DSG transmission with TipTronic for manual shifting.

The Passat uses the latest technology for performance and safety. Anti-slip regulation, electronic stabilization, engine braking assist, hydraulic brake assist are all standard. The brakes are equipped with ABS and keep themselves dry: the system automatically taps the brakes a little. Six airbags and TPMS are also standard equipment, with rear side air bags available.

There are a few standard interior features that aren't even found on more expensive vehicles, such as the 12-way power driver's seat and a power glass sunroof. More common standard features include a trip computer, air conditioning, heated seats, cruise control and an auxiliary input jack for an MP3 player. The sound system is a touch-screen Premium VIII with a 6-disc CD changer, eight speakers and Sirius satellite radio capability.

With so much included with the Passat right off the bat, there are few options. But you can swap out the stereo for a navigation and entertainment system with a 6.5-inch color touch screen, a slot for an SD car full of music files or pre-stored destinations, and a 30Gb hard drive. The only package offered is the Budapest Alloy Wheel package, which includes snazzy 18-inch wheels with all-season tires and a sport suspension.


Model News

The Passat got stripped down to basics for 2009, so a few things were added for 2010 to fill out the package. The automatic transmission has been replaced with Volkswagen's 6-speed DSG transmission with TipTronic shifting. The steering wheel got a major upgrade to being leather-wrapped and multi-functional and Bluetooth is now standard. New 17-inch wheels are standard, too, with optional 18-inch wheels and sport suspension available this year.


Value Writeup

For being in the same category as Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, the Passat offers many upscale features standard, such as heated windshield washer nozzles. It's also got plenty of space inside for people and gear in either sedan or wagon form, with a reasonably powerful turbocharged engine to haul it all around. The Passat may not have the fuel sipping TDI clean diesel engine as an option, but even-so, it turns in a respectable 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.

Summary
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Golf and Jetta SportWagen, 2007-2010 Passat sedans and wagon, 2012-2014 Passat sedan and Eos, 2009-2014 CC, 2009-2012 Audi Q5, and 2010-2011 Audi A5 Cabriolet vehicles. Upon deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture.

Consequence
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants potentially resulting in serious injury or death.

Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag inflators, free of charge. Volkswagen issued an interim notification to owners on April 12, 2016. Volkswagen owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298. Audi owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Volkswagen CC, Passat, and Tiguan, 2010-2013 Eos and Jetta, 2011-2014 Golf and GTI, and 2011-2013 Jetta Sportwagen vehicles. In the affected vehicles, debris may contaminate the air bag clock spring, a spiral wound, flat cable that keeps the air bag powered while the steering wheel is being turned. This contamination may tear the cable and result in a loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag.

Consequence
A loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag will prevent the air bag from deploying in the event of a vehicle crash, increasing the risk of injury.

The remedy for this recall is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-822-8987.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

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).
