2007 Volkswagen Passat Wagon 2.0T

Is a midsize sedan just a little too small for you and the kids' luggage when you go on vacation? Does the thought of a minivan make you cringe? Is a compact SUV no longer acceptable? How about a station wagon? More specifically, the new VW Passat Wagon, a sleek midsize people hauler for a family of four (or five). The Passat Wagon 2.0T can be bought for less than $27K (before taxes), which makes it an affordable option for minivan and SUV-averse families.
