    I'm just back from a visit to the new VW factory in Chattanooga and had an opportunity to drive the new Passat TDI. The new 2012 Passat, incidentally, is bigger and more luxurious than its predecessor and costs 25% ($7000) less.

    With its incredible 800 mile range (43 mpg), and limousine-like leg room in the back, this may do wonders for road trips versus flying. Too bad VW doesn't give out miles.

    I own a 2006 jetta tdi and get about 44 mpg on average. I absolutely love it, and almost always volunteer to drive!
