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


Bought the car brand new in '07. "Service Now" light has appeared on dash since first oil change. Electronic E-brake has left me stranded, and now rarely works..gets stuck on daily. Interior "chrome" has peeled on shifter, as well as peeling on door lock buttons. Xenon bulbs have had to be replaced on both sides, twice..$165/bulb!! Driver's side heated seats only worked for one year. Rear seat has loose stitching in spots...seat has only been used a handful of times, ever. EPC light illuminated on dash and caused expensive repairs to fix. Door lock sensor became stuck on and needed to be brought in for service. Engine is now experiencing tremendous turbo lag. DO NOT BUY!!

Best Features

Heated Seats (when they worked), spacious leg room, large trunk, red LED lights in ceiling, drunk opener on key fob, fun extras (esp the umbrella holder and water drain in the door) and traveling headlamps

Worst Features

A light in the glovebox!!!...LARGER glove box...NO Xenon headlamps...Manual Emergency brake! Need to add major extensions to the factory warantee!
