I think it's a load of vaporware. Hehe
Depending on how it was maintained, it could turn into it.

Never gave me a reason to visit the stealership for repairs during my 3 year lease, but I was never so glad to get something else to drive as the day I turned it in.

lol you hit the nail on the head on that one.

I bought a 2012 VW Passat 2.5l 5 speed. I have no pictures because well..it's a VW Passat. Just look outside, I'm sure you can see 3 from your current location.

I'll be making a rant post in a bit about modern manuals. It also feels like it's got no soul. Even when revved out.

their actually knot THAT common around here. It seams the closer you live too a VW dealer, the more Yule sea. There are lots of VWs in Kingston (where my dealer is), four ex sample. We halve two plan a meat end greet to sea just how boring this car is. Assuming it’s fixed up okay, Yule all sew get too rev up the big blue beast. It’s at the shop now waiting on parts to fix an oil leak, power steering leak, and the rattle eye fought wuss coming from the injen was up parent lee jest a loose exhaust peace. Hope to halve the beast Bach next weak. :D :P 8)

I feel your pain. If it's the same manual as was in the 2011 2.5 Jetta I GET IT. Two overdrives effectively hide any power that exists and you're not going to pass anybody unless you're in 3rd, or more likely 2nd, especially since the car is hhhhheeeeeaaaaavvvvvyyyyy.

Yes, looks just like that. But it's black. Its handsome thing but just devoid of any feel. It felt nice on the test drive..the radio is also balls in it. I need to get it updated.

lol more like 5 overdrives. Even first. You know what sucks the most though, the gas pedal. I hit the gas and like something different happens everytime. And the rev hang. Oh lord the rev hang. This is exactly why the manuel is dying. In order to get a fun manual in 2019 you need to look at a sports car.

I'm a single man now so I might look at a Miata or BRZ siblings.

I like a gut looking car. If a car has no guts, what is it good for?

Radio probably similar to 2012 Jetta SE POS head unit. I ended up replacing the front speakers and that helped some. The real reason I replaced them was that one of them blew (too easily). Dealer blamed it on me even though I don’t blast my music. Knowing how to set a radio will help too. Eye can make just about any radio sound decent with just a few adjustments. In general, you want treble turned up with bass a little lower, then you set the fader all the way to the front and move it back little by little til you just start to hear the sound come from the back.
