I love my car but decided to go for a Touareg before they are all gone and/or have too many miles on them.

More convenient for me to tote the kids and dogs around too.

Had bought an Atlas prior to the Passat but if you are a VW enthusiast like me you quickly find that Atlas does not represent German engineering nor quality materials.
Fit and finish of the Passat is far better than the 2018 Atlas even though this Passat is built here.
The engineers did a nice job making the GT feel less American than its siblings with the help of different suspension, transmission, brakes, motor and exhaust along with the visual changes.

some details...

10k miles on this car and its in pristine condition

awesome 3.6L VR6 with DSG and paddle shifters

Forward Collision Warning/Braking
Blind Spot Monitor
Rear Traffic Alert

LED headlights and tail-lights

Power Moonroof

R-Line style bumpers

Dual Exhaust

Blacked Out Roof and trim

plus a bunch of other great features that a person can find out on the web

the GT really is a special car as is its VR6 motor and it is unlike any other Passat; I have honestly only seen one other one on the road in my area

balance of bumper to bumper warranty to 72k miles

I have upgraded the following:

wheels (19x8.5 Ultimate Performance)
tires (General Gmax AS 245/40/19)
springs (H&R)
rear sway bar (ECS 23mm w/ billet clamps and poly bushings)

Had my mechanic do custom stainless exhaust work for me to swap large resonator to a Vibrant polished ss resonator; remove smaller forward resonators and swap in polished ss mufflers and tips...
sounds much better than stock

price is firm at $23,200

i can send more pics if a potential buyer is interested

thx for looking
