when will the 2013 Passat be available? i'm buying a Passat this spring.
Yes the MKIVs were quite "buggy" with regard to the soft touch peeling off. I have 2 MKVs and the soft touch has not peeled off in 6 years. Pretty good if you ask me. I would like to see that same stuff on the '13. Hopefully they will come to their senses and bring the stuff back. That alone and maybe an optional HID on the SEL would really do a lot to bring the passat back up to it's former glory.
