America is insane..
(no insult)

Mass market (Passat, Maxima, maybe Acura) / crap (Maxima, Saab) cars are the heaviest depreciators in Europe. The A6 would be way ahead of the others on value after 3 years.

I'd take the A6 a million times over too. We have a problem-free '94 with 257,000 miles and original.. everything, as far as I can tell, except head which developed a small crack around 15,000 miles ago. Absolutely everything works as new too, and it drives great.
This latest A6 is much more luxury feeling too - funky interior lighting in the dark. Quattro would be ideal..

Passat Quality?

Hello Again,

I am puzzled by the quality questions regarding the Passat.
Consumer Reports ( the most conservative magazine ever ) loves this car from a pricing/quality/reliability standpoint. They are quick to condemn cars with poor repair records. Also, isn't the engine in the Passat an Audi mill? If it works in an A 6, why not in the VW?

Just wondering,
