2007 Volkswagen Passat 2.0T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Purchased a Certified Pre-Owned car with 36k miles and have had nothing but problems from the get go! I've brought my car in at least 7 times (3 of them occurring within the first 3 months) and I haven't even owned it for a year! The warranty has covered everything so far, but having to take it into the dealer every other month is such a pain; especially since they're not open on the weekends. It seems like as soon as one thing is fixed another breaks, not to mention the endless part recalls.
The most recent issue is excessive oil consumption (adding 3 quarts in between 5k oil changes) and will have to submit a claim to VW to have it fixed. Ridiculous! Pretty car, but regret buying it!
Interior is very comfortable and has many compartments. Lots of trunk space. Turbo engine fast!
Design a better car? Or at least hire people who understand and want/care to actually fix the endless amount of problems these cars have.
