2008 Volkswagen Passat Turbo 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
I bought my Passat brand new off the show room floor. I was thrilled to have this car. It looked good, ran good, and for the first 50,000 miles I didn't have any problems.
Then I began to realize that it burns oil ridiculously.
I took it in to have the dealership run an oil consumption test, and of course they said it was fine.
Told me it burns 1qt of oil for every 1,200 miles. So I had the option of not driving my car as much, getting oil changes sooner, or just plain ol adding oil.
Either way it really sucks. Took the joy of my car away from me. I'm pleased with it, but I don't like having to keep up with the oil consumption, adding oil, or changing oil more frequently.
