Hello

How is the response of this car. I am wanting to buy a 2009 model. I was reading some reviews and they complained about the button power brake is a problem, also that it is expensive on maintenance, and the gears have a problem..please can someone who owns the car let me know how is the response...

thanks

Not had any of those problems on the B6 Passat.

The electric handbrake is more of a pain in the arse than anything else and it's the one thing I would do without.

Gearbox is the same gearbox as VW have been using for years and the maintenance is no more expensive than any other Passat or Golf. It's notchy, yes, but not problematic.

Can't comment on the bluemotion, but our 170bhp 'Sports' are having all sorts of reliability problems, mostly arising from oil starvation, which leads to turbo failure, followed by engine failure.

We have had a gearbox fail too, but I don't think thats a common fault.
