Yes, this is a cycling related question.
I'm starting to look at replacing my aging car, and I'm looking at a 2000/2001/2002 VW Passat. I'm wondering how easy it is to fit a bike in the trunk with the rear seats folded down (or not?), and without taking the front wheel off. I have a trunk-mounted rack that I use now, but it gradually scuffs up the paint on my car, and I just worry about how safe my bike is on it. Plus, with any rack I can't leave the bike alone for fear of it getting stolen, so I want a car that I can easily fit the whole thing in the trunk.
