I bought a 2015 Passat wolfsburg edition in February of 2015. Within the first 200 miles vehicle was shimmying when brakes were applied. Dealer refused to replace the brakes under the warranty saying its wear and tear. I called vwa they advised dealer and the rotors were replaced. Not even two weeks after brakes start squealing. I return to dealership and get told its nothing. Brakes continued to squeal until I had them replaced somewhere else at 26350 miles. However while brakes were squealing and even after being replaced..vehicle bas developed a chirp on both hubs when vehicle is turned and or accelerated from a stand still. Vehicle has 27000 miles on it. There's no reason it should be having these issues. I bought the vehicle at valley auto world in fayetteville nc. Also my front suspension is making noise when hitting certain bumps. Steering still has shimmy when driving. I need my repaired and 100% safety guaranteed or I will seek federal legal assistance.

The vehicle was taken to the dealer where they diagnosed that the vehicle alignment was not proper. The vehicle was repaired however the failure recurred. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 380.
