I went with the Passat because it had a lot of safety and creature comfort features you couldn't find in the Accord or Camry - like
* Power seats with Memory
* Directional bi-xenon headlamps
* MFD integrated NAV system
* Excellent Interior layout (personal preferrence)
* Excellent handling and acceleration
Well, I'd argue that the Accord V6 and Camry SE V6 handle quite well, as well as accelerate well. Also, a Passat with all of these features will cost equal to an Acura TL, not an Accord. I'm not knocking your preferences, but indeed a loaded Passat competes with entry-lux cars like TL and G35 based on price.

LOL! I agree with you on that point!
The v6 Passat pricing is indeed in the entry-lux segment - which is surprising on how wide the price range is for this car.
Since this was the Accord / Camry / Passat forum, I omitted the fact that also test drove the Acura TL. Didn't drive the G35 though - I was too put off after the Nissan Maxima test drive to even consider a Nissan Brand - I know, not very objective.
#1816 of 1844 Advice on Accord OR passat

Okay, I had a VW email me and mention that I can lease a
2008 VW Passat Komfort MSRP $29,000
Payment: $324mth, 36mth, 12k
Now this is with $0 DOWN!!! meaning that I could save my $2k I was going
to put down on a car.
BUT, I really have my heart set on the Accord, but compared to this deal, it seems
so expensive, to be at the same range, I would need to put down $2k, but that is the EX-L 4cyl navi, and one amazing car. I want to lease, not buy, but I am not sure
what I should do, after all it is only a lease. VW is a great company. The Passat
is one nice car as well, and probably has even more options. I thought if I
get the passat, have the for 3 years, and the Accord will have better deals then...
But I am not sure what to think or do, but the offer really has me thinking hard!
Please let me know what you guys think on what I should do.
Dealer told me that this is for this month only, and some how,
I believe him, because they keep extending the specials on VW.com
Let me know!

If anyone is out there, please let me know what you guys think...
They are offering nearly $4500 in savings, my mother is a VW owner and I live in the same house, so I get the loyalty cash,, I am trading, so I will have lease loyalty, plus incentives, but I want your input if I am making a good choice, but I was really wanting the Accord.
08 Komfort passat , Cobalt Blue, Very rich creamy blue, Black leather, sunroof, power seats, 6disc cd changer, heated seats. Rear window blinds, push start, aux input, HID head lights. Also it has Tiptronic transmission with minus and plus controls on the steering wheel to control the 6spd transmission. 2.0T engine, 200hp. Larger rims.
Let me know, if I should just pull the trigger?

I would suggest you also research the individual vehicle discussions, including the Prices Paid for each one. Better to make your own decision based on a whole body of information than to wait for one person to tell you what to do.
Good luck - let us know how it turns out!

I have already past that step...lol just wanted feedback, thanks though! I've got it covered...
It is looking more in the favor of the Passat, I am getting I am getting $3,700 worth of incentives. Plus I am getting the car at invoice. So when comparing both Accord and Passat leases together, it really makes sense financially, and this incentive on the Passat is amazing! I really don't think I should pass this up, considering the Accord will not ever have an incentive like this for a long time, and when they do, it is certainly not going to be this soon in its deput and I have little miles left on my current lease. So,honestly, as much as I love the new accord, there are other great cars out there, this lease deal is much better financially and realistically for a lease, with the least money involved, and that is what it is all about.

I caught a dealer-manager who was pissed at his s sales staff.
He sold me a top of line Passat Wagon for $0.75 over invoice
LESS the VW hold-back costs.
My older Passat Wagon has had 3 Turbo pumps replaced by
VW. Keep the oil change records....it is important.

#1823 of 1844 Accord EX Vs Camry SE 2009 4 cylinder
Oct 14, 2008 (7:16 am)
I am planning to purchase a new car and I am sort of confused either to choose camry or accord. Both have got the same features , price etc. I am looking at Accord EX Vs Camry SE. I have heard that seats in Accord are very uncomfortable, how far is it true? Is it very very uncomfortable. Also comapring the HP, its 155 for camry Vs 192 for Accord. I am planning to add in the package which includes moonroof etc in camry and inspite of that the price comes almost the same. Kindly help me in arriving at a decision.
