2002 Volkswagen Passat GLS V6 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5M)
Just in case anyone out there still needs convicing that VW and their Passats stink when it comes to reliablity,... I had the window partly rolled down the other day and closed the door. After which the entire window fell into the door after breaking off the cheap plastic clips inside the door. Nice! VW wanted over $400, but took it to a window place and they got it down for $250. Have had the car not start which cost $600 to replace some crazy electronic part. Front axle just broke, numerous lights have stopped working and now I need a timing belt and water pump. I'm praying to sell it before having to do more work on this piece of junk. Too bad since it's such a good looking car:(
Driving on the highway. Power. How quiet the cabin is. How pretty the car is.
Stop over engineering this car and built it with some quality and longevity in mind. Reliablity stinks big time.
