I’ve blogged about the new beast over at ownersdiary.co.uk, but I thought it deserved an entry here too.
It’s a 2012 2.0 TDi VW Passat with DSG Gearbox (with flappy paddles) and about 140bhp. It has acres of space in the back, and folding back seats – a revelation after the A4. It has automatic gears, cruise control, automatic handbrake (controlled by the ABS sensors, I believe), automatic lights and automatic wipers. I just need to be there to point it, really, although I’m pretty sure it could do that itself too if I found the right switch…
I like it a lot, but I do now have a hankering for something else… Something small, red, rear wheel drive and supercharged, maybe… 😉
