There is one for sale at an auction in NC next week that has 85k miles on it. Comes from a fleet/lease company. It will be interesting to see what it brings. 2012 SE with DSG.

18500 miles in one year. Ran around 600 miles at last fill up. Using pencil and paper we got 48.9 mpg, it's great.

Leaving for a east coast vacation Saturday morning and will report back with mpg for the trip. Getting the 20,000 oil change tomorrow morning before leaving.

Going to be at 12k in about 8 months or ownership. Hoping to get the Corrado on the road shortly and get 1-5k on it before winter, but when classes start back up ill be doing upwards of 400mi/week commuting again (+100 for around town) and that will likely be mostly in the Passat.

39,000 in 10 months. No significant issues so far. I still like it more than my old b5.5. We'll see if it lasts as long. The b5.5 made it to 322k.

DSG service in 2weeks and it looks like it's almost time for the Hankooks to go away!

89K in 21 months. No big issues either and like hysterwv I like it better than my b5.5 - mainly because it has more room. Hoping and expecting mine to last like my b5.5 which had 270k before it was wrecked.

Hysterwv, my Hankooks only lasted to the 1st DSG service as well before they were worn out. Replaced them with a set of Michelin's. The Michelin's are still going good I figure I have at least another 10K on them.

Default How many miles on your Passat

'12 SEL/DSG. Platinum gray w/black interior. Purchased the vehicle in St. Louis late Nov '11 while living in IA, moved to ATL Oct '12. 32K with no issues. Changed out the crappy Hankooks for quieter Goodyears. Best feature of the vehicle is the interior head/legroom front and back. Worst feature is the nav system - difficult to program and display is so low that one must take their eyes off of the road for too great a period of time to use it safely.
