    Hello All,

    Im new to the VW brand and to the Passat. Was in the market for a new ride with above average fuel economy. Came down to the Hybrid Sonata and the 2012 Passat. After doing some dd/ decided on the Passat TDI/SEL. I put a deposit down on it last week, wait time 30-35 days i was told. It was interesting researching both cars as the H Sonata is having a slew of mechanical issues out of the box from what I read, & then i read something about HPFP failures with the TDI engine on another forum. No car line is immune to issues however I believe I made the right choice.

    The dealership Im working with has offers lifetime oil changes and a lifetime warranty with purchase. The only VW dealership in the area to offer that.

    Im looking forward to seeing what after market accessories will be offered for the passat

    Lifetime warranty? OMG, what does it cover? Do you have to have all service done at their shop or what?

    Make sure they use only VW's 507.00 engine oil spec. Many dealers don't do this and the dealership will void their own warranty!
