2007 Volkswagen Passat Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 152011

Passat 4-motion 6.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 68,020 miles

It's outrageous that a $5,000 repair is required at 68,000 miles. Apparently the timing chain was hitting its cover, which required a complete tear-down (about a 30-hour job), new oil pump, gears, chains, guides, etc. So much for vaunted Germany design and engineering! I was even told by the VW shop that it's to be expected. It's the last VW product I'll ever buy.
