Went in to test drive a 2012 Passat and fell in love with my 2005 Wagon TDI all over again. Really Impressed with the 2012 TDI SE we drove at the dealership, but what was really impressive was that my 05(100K) is very much comparable to the 12(500m). Obvious differences aside; Wagon vs Sedan, New vs Used, adblue vs not, ETC... Performance and handling were very similar. Both nicely tuned suspensions, and the powerplants are related. So with that being said: 2013 TDI SEL Premium (Reflex Silver) estimated delivery date 23 July 2012. We can't wait. I like my car and hope it continues for many miles, however the advent of a new passat wagon would be the only way I would want to give up mine. And as for my wife, she is very excited and I am confident this will be a good transportation decision. Wondering about advanced reading possibilities?
