I liked my last VW Passat so much that I decided to get another one now that my last lease is up. I"m buying this one though. It's got a few more niceties (leather, touchscreen, etc.) but it's basically the same car. 2013 Passat with low miles. smile.gif

Great car Todd. You see a lot of them (together with the Golf) in my country. They are very reliable and keep their value well. smile.gif

Thanks! And it's not a DIESEL smile.gif The seat warmers are a nice touch and the leather interior is nicer than my last one which was cloth. Great car for the price smile.gif

Very true smile.gif I've owned sports cars and motorcycles and have had two near death experiences (they brought me back to life both times) in vehicle accidents so now I'm more interested in a car that can take a hit from another driver. Love it so far smile.gif P.S. NIKEMAN I love your personal statement on your profile, it's from my fave film! BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA!

True!!! That's the one thing I HATE about buying a car. I could buy a new guitar each month with the payment smile.gif

Now you need a VW guitar! smile.gif Congrats on the new wheels man.

http://www.autoblog.com/2006/10/03/vw-give...with-every-veh/

I recently started rolling on some new wheels too. Well, not brand new but a loaded 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk edition with 20k miles.
A big switch from my 95 T-Bird which is getting pretty tired.

YEAH!!! It is indeed a great oneliner from that film. Sometimes it drops out of my mouth in a conversation when I have too much DUVELS (Very strong Belgian beer) laugh.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif
