    Indeed it does. If only vw used quality parts. They wouldn't break down so often or cost so much to own. Vw is like an onion, you peel one skin or fix one part and you'll need to fix others while you're in there. My opinion only of course...

    The cars built in Germany do fare better than the ones made in Mexico... I don't know which models are made where anymore, however.

    I always said this was Volkswagen beating GM to doing an MCE of the W-body Impala.

    Drives like a pile of mush. Transmission is lazy, engine is wheezy.

    Only good thing is the interior space and sticker price.

    It's like VW recreated a GM car from the 80s.

    VAG press photos are heavily touched up, wait for real world photos.

    I don't mean this as an "attack", I am truly curious - how do they touch up the photos? Meaning it's not like a model where they can airbrush away a few pounds or enhance a few areas we want to see enhanced . Or do you mean they fix lighting reflections & light/dark spots?

    this is probably VW CC for NA market...

    I went to VW Drive Experience in Toronto last week and tried all new 2015 VW golf GTI and 1.8T trim, the one 1.8T 170 HP was a hoot to drive. VW CC was my second pick back then but it had only 2 seats at the back.

    That's the 2012 Passat. The one I pictured is the next design we're getting here in the U.S.

    With the current generation VW tried to appeal more to Americans with a softer suspension. I haven't driven in a Passat since the B5.5 days. The sticker price IS pretty nice...

    Not at all. Freaking love Audis.

    The lighting, the clean design. It's the luxury brand of the Millennial generation.
