I've got to ask...What kind of gas mileage were you expecting when you bought the overweight, 8 cylinder Passat?
I mean, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize you're going to get horrible gas mileage and be forced to buy premium fuel.
Didn't you take these factors into account before spending $40K+ on the car. Now you're in the market for a hybrid!?! LOL
You remind me of these people who buy gigantic SUV's, cry about filling the tank, then trade it in for a Civic.

The link the reader above gave lists the 2002 Passat as the #1 re-sale mid size car. I never buy new. 2 years old is perfect - can do a little research on the car - and pay much less. I absolutely love the way the Passat feels on the road - plan to keep this car for awhile.

I think that buying hybrid for city driving is good idea.
Buying hybrid for suburban commuting is not.
And W8 Passat. It is 4 liter and AWD, what did you expect?

I like the passat over the camry and accord but want to get a nav system and I've read mixed reviews. Anyone have an opinion on the passat nav system? Thanks

I appreciate the comparisons of Honda to VW, but I am also considering the Acura TSX - any comments or opinoins?

It would be best to start a new discussion that specifically addresses the vehicles you are considering. Just go here and use the Add Discussion link to fire it up.

One way to do this is to check out the "Accord vs. TSX" board...there are many opinions on that comparison. I don't believe they include VW in on it, just Accord versus TSX only...

Which is why starting a new discussion including the specific vehicles canaanman is interested in would be the best thing ...
OTOH, if you are recommending using the existing discussions that include any of the vehicles canaanman mentions for research, I wholeheartedly agree. It's just that we don't need to "untrack" any of the existing ones.

Was the mileage really that bad? I have been looking at a 2004 W8 with the sport package and I really like it for a larger car. I currently drive a WRX wagon and I need the extra space for a growing family (wife's due in a few weeks). You said you had a 330 which is another model I've considered. Was it's mileage much better?
