    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Not what you think. After 4 years and 85k miles on my '06 FourMotion, I decided to try something else. I've had numerous VW's and Audi's, but living in the frozen north and getting older, an autostart was high on my priorities. I ended up getting a '10 Cadillac CTS4 with the performance...
