Chrome Oxidizing All Over Body

2005 Volkswagen Passat GLX Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Volkswagen is using junk chrome on it's exterior. The chrome all over my car began to oxidize at about 5,000 miles. Dealer said that they had never heard of this problem, although VW had developed a special creme to buff out this problem they've never heard about. Buffed once, reoxidized, regional manager is telling me I have to take off work to have it buffed out again. Why? Just replace the faulty chrome. Shame on you, Volkswagen! I love the car otherwise, but I am souring on the company after what I've been through. Initially, they were not willing to do anything. Too bad, so sad. Disappointing gas milage. You can do better, VW...

I'm really not very happy with this company at the moment. Sorry!
