Rattlebox

Vehicle
2004 Volkswagen Passat GL 1.8T Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
Review
Purchased new.. dashboard started rattling 1 week after we took delivery. Has been in shop 11 times for that problem alone. Trim moldings come unstuck, we just stick them back on. VW couldn't care less. Consulted a lemon lawyer - not defined as a lemon 'cause rattle is not considered a 'defect'. What a sad joke. We tried to trade this car in on a Toyota and the best trade price we were offered was $13,500. Pathetic resale and now I know why. Its a heap of junk! I don't know how we are going to sell it privately with a loud rattle in the dashboard! We're going to cut our substantial losses and kiss VW goodbye.
Favorite Features
Smooth ride on freeway (if you put earplugs in to deafen rattle)
Suggested Improvements
Better build quality. VW to learn how to fix their problems when they arise.
