Passat reminds you of Taurus? I understand your bitterness over VW's cancellation of your long awaited Passat. But let's be fair your long wait belies your consideration of the car. I just can't believe that after such careful deliberation and your consistent postings in favor of the Passat on the Edmunds site that you could have ever thought the Passat comparble to the Taurus. Let's face it the automotive press likes it, Consumer's Reports likes it, the IIHS and NHTSA crash tests places it with Volvo). The ride, interior, comfort, looks (admittedly subjective on this point), and $ for the amenities quality may not place it with BMW (and it shouldn't be, it's really for someone who wants the above without real luxo prices) it certainly can't realistically be compared with the likes of the Taurus.
