Volkswagen Passat Passes Away

The final Volkswagen Passat has rolled off the assembly line in Chattanooga, Tennessee, ending the model’s extended run on the North American market.

Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro and introduced in 1973 using the VW/Audi B1 platform, the Passat arrived in the United States as the Dasher and was sold as a midsized luxury vehicle to people in the market for an imported economy car. The model carried different names in other parts of the world and even saw a few unique monikers used in the U.S. (e.g. Quantum) to help differentiate between the hatchback, sedan, and wagon variants sold throughout the 1980s. But it was officially known as the (B2) Passat by 1990, regardless of format.

  • Cprescott I bet the hackers left a backdoor with which they can re-enter and to re-extort CDK.
  • Cprescott It pains me to think how good GM could have been if its engineering department had been staffed with people with common sense and talent. Now the styling department is equally devoid of people with working eye sight and talent.
  • Cprescott As a FORMER LOYAL FORD BUYER AND OWNER OF NEARLY 40 YEARS, I must say Ford continues to reinforce my decision of abandoning the brand in 2019 as a great choice. They respect no heritage anymore and have left me with no cars to purchase. Oh, well. My current ride from Hyundai has served me well for the past five years and 60k miles. Thank you, Ford. I'm enjoying life again.
  • Cprescott Hell no!
  • Cprescott On a positive note for Toyoduh (!), this is not the ugliest vehicle they make. But it remains a Toyoduh and the driver will feel entitled to own the road with the rest of us being damned. Hideous spoiler and wheels.
