The Passat didnt have nearly as many failures of the HPFP as the Golf/Jetta did. And all of the ones that I know of (only 3 that I personally know of) they were all confirmed failures due to gasoline contamination.

So I do not believe the HPFP is an issue on the Passat.

The Turbo failures were more prevalent on the 2012 and very early 2013's. The later 2013 - 2015's werent nearly as problematic.

The 2012 - 2014 has an adblue heater that is separately replaceable and is kind of a known failure point. We hope that is solved with the newest revision of the pump, but time will tell.

the 2015 Passat adblue heater is built into the tank and is not separately replaceable. They havent been as failure prone, but again, time will tell.

Either way, the adblue system is covered under the Dieselgate emissions warranty.

And since you brought up the Dieselgate emissions warranty just now, the 2015 has a better warranty. 11 years or 162k miles for everything fuel, adblue, engine, or turbo related. The 2012 - 2014 is covered for 10 years or 120k miles.

Lastly, the 2015 Passat gets the 150hp CVCA engine while the 2012 - 2014 Passat gets the 136hp CKRA engine.

But all this is moot since you brought the 2014 home. LOL.

Its still a good car, but it will get sh*t mileage with those 5 mile drives every day. When I was making that commute, I was getting about 28mpg average on the tank.
