It's basically a Passat GTi. But the price is way above your budget. Other than the Golf GTi its the only other VW with a wet 6 speed transmission. And they are the only 2 I would ever consider buying. The rest are all on dry 7 speed if i am not mistaken.

Passat is comfortable. I'd rank its interior above all the Japanese marques. Classy and clean, more like BMW than Mercedes in that utilitarian sense.
Yeah, i'm really impressed with it. But maintenance side they are also above the Japanese marques. VW chassis feels super rigid too even just the Vento.

VW is "cheap" to buy in Malaysia because ... and numerous reason (psst the DSG 7 dry is crap, they don't sell ANY VW car in USA with the DSG 7 dry, ask yourself why, in the USA they can be sued to death).


But VW is not a cheap car, it is, at the end of the day, a continental. Many parts are made in Germany, Mexico, versus Japanese makes with spare parts from Thailand and Japan.

Yes! I saw the review and I am impressed. Though they have crazy discounts now. I can't really pull the trigger due to kids' college/uni cost next year. I have to pass it now. :(

However it's a good thing thru this topic, I get to learn a lot... and maybe I should hold horses now and just wait for next year.

Come VW Selayang. Im working there as marketing. If u want, get the 2.0, its really so much better than the ol Camry/accord/mazda6. Also got the chance to whack it at SIC at full throttle on corners. On standstill u can wheelspin abit on second gear.

Also its a bargain now with no SST(ya they extended it).

Bro recommend you edit your post. Don’t want you to get into hot soup with the company.

Even if it may be true, don’t have to be so forthcoming in a public forum.
