This handsome United Gray Volkswagen Passat is near flawless in every respect.. Having spent its previously owned days in Texas, the condition of the interior and exterior suggests it has been garaged and out of the elements most of it's life. Whoever buys this vehicle will be getting a car that had an MSRP of just under $25,000 for a fraction of the price, while retaining much of that new-car feeling. The 2.0T engine mated with a slick shifting 6-speed transmission is perfectly suited for mountainous driving with plenty of usable torque on tap. What's more, this speedy sedan gets over 30mpg on the highway. Last but by no means least, at CaliCARS Direct we're car enthusiasts and nothing gets us excited like a rare manual transmission! You haven't truly driven until you experience the snick snick bliss of rowing your own gears. This would make the perfect first car or an ideal commuter for someone who wants to add a little excitement to their drive! Most people in this segment usally consider a Honda Accord or Toyota Camry, but this Passat offers all of the practicality with a litle more pizzaz.

This Passat is purpose built driving machine. With gobs of standard features it keeps things simple with elegant leatherette seats that still look brand new. A little nervous about starting out on a hill with a manual?

This VW is in such incredible shape, it almost looks like it came off a new-car showroom floor. Exterior flaws are minimal and the United Gray paint is full of luster and depth. All lights are free of cracks, condensation and discoloration. Exterior plastic trim is free of fade. The soft gray leatherette seats show no noticable wear. Most buttons are legible with no fading and interior trim is all intact and in excellent condition.
WHAT'S NOT PERFECT
In this Passat's case, there really not a lot that isn't flawless. There is minor clear coat fade on the roof and the unlock button on the inside of the driver's side door is faded. Also when your car goes over large dips or bumps, the springs make a minor creaking sound. There is nothing visually wrong with them, just age related. Lastly, the rear-defroster does not work.

Traveling down the road, the vehicle tracks true and straight while accelerating, cruising, and braking The 200 horsepower smooth as silk 2.0L turbo engine is powerful and linear, and acceleration is effortless. The 6-speed manual transmission is buttery smooth and clutch moducation light and intuitive. The real fun begins where the roads gets twisty. The suspension is taught while being well-dampened, and this Passat corners flatly and changes direction on a dime. The brakes are linear and powerful. At highway speeds there are no vibrations or abnormal wind noise.
