Just to let everyone know - I figured I'd post this up. My girlfriend works for Volkswagen and drives a v6 '99 Passat.. The car handles so well that I thought I'd try the new W8 to compare it to Cadillacs.. While it has very nice power, it doesn't compare to the STS or ETC (cars I've driven). However, handling is an entirely different story. Again, another German car that handles very, very well.. Very little bodyroll.. Very firm.. The '01 Jetta (base model) is garbage times ten.. But Volkswagen's flagship model, the Passat, is really nice...

Oh, another thing I should mention.. Features and comfort.. The Passat is hard - just like most German cars I've been in. The seats are hard and they mention in the catalog that this is to keep you awake.. Hmm? The car lacks features, as well.. Overall, the only thing I liked better about the Passat is the suspension.. Otherwise, there's just no comparison...

Sal-Have you driven a current model STS? It takes curves great! I'll take 50mph curves at 90mph with no problem. The car handles incredibly. I don't think the VW can compare once you add the CVRSS (or now Magna-Ride), Stabilitrack, and Traction Control. i guess i am a little biased. . .
