2010 Volkswagen Passat
2010 Volkswagen Passat
The Passat has been bringing a lot of value to the midsized sedan family for many years, the 2010 model is no different, but does have a whole new look that will keep heads turning. The Passat can be purchased in both sedan and wagon body styles depending on your taste. This year's model no longer offers a V-6 option, the only engine being offered in the 2010 Passat is the Inline four cylinder engine that doess offer plenty of power to make the Passat zippy and definitely not underpowered. The Passat does offer a 6 speed transmission in automatic or manual versions this year. For those looking for more traction control, there is an optional all wheel drive version available.

The standard options that come with every Passat are very impressive and include a sunroof, heated seats, satellite radio, Bluetooth features and big 17 inch rims. This may be part of the reason that it carries a rather high starting price. The Passat does offer some solid fuel economy with its 31 mpg on the highway which will be appreciated by any driver.

2012 Vw Passat Super Bowl Teaser1
Now that the big game has come and gone, and the Green Bay Packers have won the Lombardi Trophy for 2011, Nielsen has released its data on viewers’ favorite commercials. 2011 was unlike past years, with auto manufacturers stealing lasting impressions away from beverage and snack food producers. When looking at the ratings for the Super Bowl commercials, Nielsen sorts overall impressions into three different categories: most-watched, best-liked, and most-recalled. The most-watched category is dependent purely on the number of television viewers the ad has during its timeslot during the game. With the exception of one, all of the top-viewed commercials of 2011 all aired during the last quarter of the game, where viewership had increased in anticipation of the final score. Using a "likeability index," Nielsen is able to rank commercials in order of how much they were enjoyed and the amount of post-game buzz they created. For the first time ever, more than one automotive advertisement cracked the top 10 list in likability and in fact they took over half of the list. Similar to the likeability index is a "recall index," rating how easily an ad is fully remembered (both brand and content) after its airing. Taking the number one spot as most watched commercial went to Chevrolet’s “Miss Evelyn” Camaro ad. The ad followed the daydreaming narration of two guys, making up their dream Camaro commercial. A beautiful woman drives her way through a hair-raising chase scene in what turns out to actually be her commute to work as a school teacher. [youtube 9MIs0sBBwBo] The best-like award was picked up by another automaker, Volkswagen. Not only did its “Black Beetle” ad make it to the number six spot, “The Force” commercial with a little Darth Vader took the top ranking. The pint-sized Sith Lord out-liked all the other commercials last Sunday night with 15 more points on Nielsen’s "likeability index" than the number two commercial, Bridgestone’s beaver-centric “Carma” ad. Honorable mentions go to Chrysler’s “Born of Fire” two-minute ad starring Eminem (#8) and Audi’s “Release the Hounds” escape from old luxury (#10).

Its “Pug Attack” ad with the dog knocking down a glass door to get some chips was the number one most remembered commercial from the night, with two of its other ads ranking in at numbers three and seven, respectively. Super Bowl viewers liked their food, as all but two of the top 10 commercials ranked by Nielsen as most-recalled were from food and beverage makers. Click here for video Source: Nielsen
2012 Vw Passat Super Bowl Teaser
One of the biggest television nights in the U.S. is coming up this Sunday, with some 95 million viewers set to tune into Super Bowl XLV.

After a rebound in 2010, carmakers are swarming back to the big game with no less than nine automotive companies, including Audi, BMW, and General Motors, set to advertise on Sunday.

Recall Date
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Volkswagen CC, and Passat, 2010-2013 Eos, 2011-2014 Golf, GTI, Jetta, and Tiguan, and 2012-2014 Jetta Sportwagen vehicles. In the affected vehicles, debris may contaminate the air bag clock spring, a spiral wound, flat cable that keeps the air bag powered while the steering wheel is being turned. This contamination may tear the cable and result in a loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag.
A loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag will prevent the air bag from deploying in the event of a vehicle crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will install a protective cover over the steering wheel clock spring if the air bag light is off. If the airbag light is on and the steering wheel clock spring requires replacement, dealers will install a new steering wheel clock spring. These repairs will be performed free of charge. Interim notices were mailed to owners on September 25, 2015. Owners will receive a second notice when parts become available in early 2016. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-822-8987.
