    Depends on the size requirement for your mum really....loads of similar components on them. I prefer the Passat for load space etc.

    I would also consider a Seat (Toledo) or a Skoda (Octavia) for a very similar car (again loads of shared componets for less money (i.e. you get a newer car for your money).  Just a suggestion if your mum is ok with the image.

    All those cars (and also the Audi A4) are basically the same car. Reliable, decent enough to drive and solid. A good mum car.

    Passat, I used one for years when I was a taxi driver so you can imagine the mileage, when I packed that game in my mechanic bought it of me yet another testament, I've not drove a taxi for at least 8 years the mechanic still owns the Passat!

    It's hard to be humble when I'm so great...

    I drive a TDi passat, is a very good car tbh, not flash or anything but handles really well very economical 60+mpg never had any problems with it and is at 89000 miles can be pretty nippy too if needed, not to dear on the insurance either.

    Overall not any complaints about it, very very reliable.

    I have a Passat, a 2008 model diesel. I had an equivalent aged golf before hand (a bora with no boot, think they've gone back to Jetta now). The Passat surprised me in that is was almost as nimble as the golf, no real difference other than acceleration (both had the same lump), the Passat is a  heavy car. I've done 14,000 miles in mine since December. Including commuting from Yeovil to Torquay for 3 months. Very comfortable, nice car. A couple creaks which I wasn't happy with but you cannot go wrong with VW.
