Sooner it's gone the better

2006 Volkswagen Passat 2.0T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


This vehicle while is fun to drive has spent more time with the mechanic than with us.
5 trips to fix the injectors, 4 trips the second time they went in only 140Km.
I can't believe 2 sets of injectors in only 140Km.
All 4 wheel bearings failed before 80Km, AC failed, trunk release failed, and on and on.
The dealer would try something and when surprise it wasn't fixed told us to book another appointment, great except we live 5 hours from the nearest dealer, in one case it took 4 trips to fix one little problem.
NO support from the VW dealer so we phoned VW Canada and all I got was "that's the way our warrenty works"
I guess that means tough luck consumer.
Stay away from this vehicle.

Best Features

drove and handled well in all weather, just can't trust it to get you from point A to B

Worst Features

VW needs to stand behind what is obviously a lemon year rather than chase customers away. Remember Good service and quality work keeps people, poor service and poor quality keeps them away.
