I just read your review and I have to call B.S. on it! I own a 2007 Passat with the 2.0ltr turbo and have over 130,000 miles on it with VERY little problems other than a few minor recalls for computer programing glitches and an automatic transmission shift module that gave up twice (all covered under warranty). My car was assembled in Germany but the transmission and transmission shift module was made in Japan (Japanese automatic transmissions are not good), so I'm hoping the trans doesn't give out after writing this. Other than these few issues, my car hasn't experienced any where near the problems that you list! So I call BS on you! You have no idea what you are talking about since CVC Boots DO NOT GO BAD as much as you claim and the 2007 2.0ltr turbo engine DOES NOT HAVE A METAL TIMING CHAIN to break (it has a rubber timing belt that needs to be replaced around the 125,000 mile marker of which I had done along with the tensioner; this cost me $465.00 and was done by a certified VW shop)! I'm glad you no longer own this car, and I highly doubt that you ever did since you clearly have no idea what you are talking about in your review.Report it
