2006 Volkswagen Passat 2.0T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
I own a 2006 Passat 2.0 T with 62K. This is the worst car I ever owned in my 50 years. The positive about a car is cool exterior look.
The interior is falling apart. The drawers are stuck, paint is peeling off, other plastic parts have broken hinges.
The engine is losing oil. I have to do oil change every 2,500 miles to keep dipstick inside the range. The wheel bearngs were replaced for both rear wheels.
Air conditioner compressor died and AC didn't work for 2 years. The compressor for this car is the most expensive, due to high demand.
VW of America are useless. Many Technical service Bulletins were issued, admitting the design flaws, but not granting financial aid.
