Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2007 Volkswagen Passat Owner Comments

Passat 4-cyl

My VW Passat 2007 stalls and/or does not start. It has stalled while driving on the freeway and then sometimes does not start at all. Sometimes if tried after a while it may start. I'm told it is a high pressure fuel valve problem that is part of a recall but my VIN does not qualify for that.

My 2007 Passat 2.0T wagon car has developed a symptom when the RPM goes over 3000 specially when I need acceleration and it cuts of the power (fuel or something else I don't know, there is a tsb regarding to cam shaft lobe wear this is the exact symptom I have) the mil comes on with a code 2293. I went to the dealer and they say Y vehicle is over warranty mileage and they will not cover it. I noticed many people are having the exact same issue on the internet and when driving on the highway this is a serious safety issue since the engine power cuts off. By the definition of the tsb this is apparently a manufacturing defect they even release an updated part and advise the dealers to use the updated part. I like many others are forced to pay a hefty repair sum just after couple thousand miles over warranty period. In my opinion VW needs to issue a recall on this issue.

2007 Volkswagen Passat. Engine started knocking so I had it towed to the dealer. It ended up needing a new engine because the high pressure fuel pump plunger failed and sent metal into the engine destroying it. VW refuses to pay for it.
