2008 Volkswagen Passat Komfort 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
I bought my Passat Komfort new 2008 and was very excited because I had just traded a 2007 Passat Wolfburg limited edition with no problems.
After driving this 2008 passat for 50,000 the vehicle engine shut down engine light came on and I stop to checked the oil and the oil stick was dry.
The vehicle was towed to the dealership because I was told not to drive it and they said the vehicle had oil but not reading on the stick and the car only get around 600 miles to a quart.
now i have to check the oil often before
the oil changes.
The car now in 2011 is buring oil as fast as I add oil.
It make me sick to know I paid 30,000 for a vehicle and now have to check the oil during every fill up.
Seats, electronic features, the back and side manual
sun visor screen.
Oil consumption, automatic sun visor screen.
Noisey tire roaring on the higway
I have a 2008 VW Passat too and this is exactly what I'm going thru.
I'm so sick of adding a quart of oil every 3-4 weeks and the VW place can't find anything wrong.
I'm looking for a new car but right now I don't know what to buy and I don't have enough money saved.
This is so frustrating.
I had the same problem, I bought the car used in 2011 with 49,000 miles on it. I took it to my local VW dealer and they had me start an oil consumption test. They found that my car was using an excessive amount of oil. VW repaired it free of charge under warranty I believe my service advisor said it was a $3000 job. There were a list of things they had to do. I can honestly say it worked.
