On July 28th I took delivery of 2013 TDI SE. out of the two on the lot in the area of the 3 dealers, I settled for the SE. The other being a SEL, and the options offered were not a selling point for me. This is a 2nd VW for the family (not counting the 2001 A6). I traded in a 2008 Accord for the car, wasn't very happy with the interior gas mileage and overall performance of the car. We are much happier with the Passat, which is roomier, very responsive and believe it or not...quiet. I'm on my 2nd fillup and averaging 40.5 mpg. Yes diesel is a bit pricier...but what was the alternative? Chevy Volt?.......please..... Here she is after getting tints done.
