Worst car I have ever owned
By merry8 on


2003 Volkswagen Passat GLS 1.8T 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Bought this car brand new off the lot, brakes squeeked from day 1, when I inquired with the dealer I was advised "all new car's brakes squeek".
I took to an independent mechanic at 8k miles, the mechanic stated my brakes were completley failed, rusted.
The mechanic told me the brakes were so bad I should stop driving asap, I had the car towed to the dealer.
The dealer b.s.'ed me and told me my brakes were fine, I believed them.
They were not, at just over 12k miles, they were gone, dealer said brake warranty over at 12k, they strung me along until the warranty ran out.
The dealer stated it was because i lived near the ocean, that is why my brakes failed!!Numerous other issues as well.
