Burns oil??
By Orion Cavins on


2007 Volkswagen Passat 2.0T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


I traded my 03 Honda Accord for the Passat. Love the car except the premium fuel requirement. Recently oil pressure light comes on in between oil change (10,000 miles between as recommended by manual). Had car towed to dealership. They said car can consume 1 qt for every 1200 miles, and Volkswagen considers that normal? This sounds like a design flaw to me. My accord went 10,000 miles between changes and never lost a drop. I had it well into the 80K area. I am not satisfied with their response to this so far. I didn't win this car in a raffle, and want it to last without worry. Other problems is radio had display glitch and air bag on drivers side had to be replaced. Not happy at this time

Best Features

I love the acceleration in the mid range. Very smooth. Interior comfortable, and well designed controls.

Worst Features

No premium gas, no synthetic oil. STOP the oil burning, or oil using, or where ever the oil goes. More engineers than NASA... I have a design problem that could use a good review. If there is a benefit for this consumption, I would love to know what it is. So far its smoke and mirrors at dealership.
