I know I'm going to get flamed, but:
1. Great deal OP.
2. I don't get why people would buy, personally, a dull looking car when they could get something that looks decent...each to their own and fair enough...but normal rrp:

Jeez!



Yep i'd agree with that!
Just look at the list of reported issues here with the previous model - all the faults noted are simply a record of actual complaints from real owners.
honestjohn.co.uk/car…ood

Far less reported for the Mazda, though still some diesel issues with older Mazda's, but not on the scale typical of VW group stuff.
I thought it was universal knowledge now VW group stuff is just not as reliable as their advertising makes out, though there is definitely much effort gone into making them highly presentable with a good PERCEPTION of quality which matters a lot - don't get me wrong. But more reliable!?!!

I have a Passat with all of these features and would suggest that for £1600 it would be well worth doing.

My 2016 Passat is the SE Spec with metallic paint and its a very worthwhile difference.

I'd strongly recommend the Passat.

We've a 2016 1.6TDI and its a fantastic car. I'd have had the petrol engined variant had one existed at the time.

I'd probably recommend finding the extra for the SE variant if you can. Theres some very nice touches with it.

I'd personally take the PCP offer and either clear it with car or with a cheap bank loan.

With around £2000 deposit you could have this car for £300 a month over four years and own it outright.

This has been my favorite car for nearly a decade, can't comment on recent ones but older passats made to last. Beautiful car.

I thought folding mirrors and sensors are standard now and not a chargeable extra. Ahh I forgot, it's a vag car, even dacia gives more nowadays.

It's the entry level car. The SE Business spec gives you all the bits you'd really want for not a big hill of beans more.

Worth it IMHO but you pays your money.. .

Where is this deal? Link takes me to home page with no sign on special offers?

I bought a brand new passat in 2010, stupidly sold it after 18 months and have ended up buying another 7 years later. I'd have had the other one paid for long since and it would still be fresh looking and going strong.

Maybe I will have the wit to keep this one long term....

You need to go to vw, then passat, then pick the specific model.

No direct link that I could find

Please don't get a fake steer by reading any of sycophantic reviews by VAG loving motoring press. Read Clarkson's review of its brother the Skoda Superb

any thoughts if this car will last someone over 10 years and 150k miles?

My colleague owned his previous Passat (06 plate, 2.0TDI) for ten years and did over 210k, as he travels all over the country because of his job. There was nothing wrong with the car when he got rid of it. I don't know how reliable these petrol engines are but generally Passat's been long known for its reliability.

Do they do the cc version?

Good deal if you're into VW's but it does nicely illustrate how big a mark up there is on new car prices........

How do you get it for the price the OP posted? Can't seem to find 4K contribution and price still not near 16k mark. Can OP post the steps please

nevermind I got it now you have to click get discounted price

​They separated Cc altogether it became a model in its own right. But is about to be discontinued.

The Arteon will replace the cc and looks gorgeous.

Never ending discussion on same level as whether tits or ass is more important.

Seeing how mazdas are rust buckets puts me away in this case as I would like to keep the car over 10 years.

Really?

I have an 04 plate Bora (little brother to the Passat / Golf with a boot) which is on 224K. Original clutch and DMF lasted to 191K, still on original turbo. Never had any real issues other wear & tear. So, I would recommend VW for reliability.

And, I've always only ever run it on supermarket fuel!

Bought two cars from DriveTheDeal approx 12 and 10 years ago - Renault.
All good, genuine Company.
Edited by: "deany76" 10th Jul

I owned VW SHARAN it was 2015 without steering wheel controls and that's really annoys me and I finally sold it.
Always buy SE variant
I will never buy a VW again in my life this is what I decided. They have still 10 year old look and charge you for things which even kids toys cars have for free now a days.

Yup. You pays your money...

Looks are subjective. If someone prefers the looks of the Mazda6 then thats their choice.

Lots of very good cars in this category now, so lots of room for choice.

The CC is a different model - worth noting its based on the older B7 Passat, not this latest B8 variant.

Also the CC is about to be superceded (or overshadowed by) the launch of the Arteon (which will be a lot more expensive that either the CC or the Passat.

I looked in to all this a couple of months ago before i bought the 2016 Passat.

It was a good car - hamstrung by the engine problems in the 2.0TDI variant in the early days. I dont think it fully recovered.

FYP.

Sold my 2008 Passat with 180k on the clock last year. Never had any problems or cost more than maintenance. I think the key is that this milage was mostly on motorways and VAG serviced for the first 120k miles. Never buy one with any unknown history.
