Time for a new Passat. I'd prefer a diesel for the mileage, but would consider a V6 gas model.

Have there been any mechanical or electrical problems with Passats from recent years? Or things I should look out for with a used Passat?

Any and all recommendations appreciated.

thanks

Are you asking about a Passat or CC? There is a big difference. For instance, there is no diesel CC offered in NA.

Not a CC.

I'm asking about a Passat TDI diesel (preferred), or a Passat V6 gas engine.

Just checking, because you posted in the CC subforum.

Not withstanding the fact he's in the wrong forum.
I think all VW diesel sales have been suspended.
Find the right forum and ask again.
This place is pretty dead.

B6 forum will have a better answer.

My advice would be a diesel (used), but make sure you're up to speed with all the news before you do anything regarding VW. As I've been telling my friends who have asked recently about buying VW, I'm still a fan of the make, but you need to educate yourself and see how you feel about it before you buy.
