So my wife is pregnant with our second. We currently have one 6 year old daughter, a Silverado and a 2 door civic. The Honda is a pain in the ass alone with 6 year old and we're getting ready for the new born. We both really like the newer Passat (2010+) and the CC. Anything we need to look for with all the different engines, recalls or anything with the two. It looks like the 5 cyl is common in the Passat and the 2.0t is common in the cc. My wife was hooked on the Chevy Malibu so thankfully u got her looking at the VW.
