2007 Volkswagen Passat 1.6 FSI


Would go for Mercedes or BMW


- Steering box rack and pinion problem at 62,000 km (agent didn't commit the problem, until after the car went out of its warranty period) (Cost 12000 EGP).

- Starter motor damage at 90,000 km (cost 3000 EGP).

- Sun roof unintentional opening.

- EGR solenoid valve at 95,000 km (cost 3000 EGP).

- Electronic hand brake problem at 70,000 km (cost 175 EGP).

- Had an accident with the car in the first year,

and the authorized agent in Egypt fixed it with non original accessories.

- Egyptian agent is very BAD.

- German manufacturer's CS is very bad.

General Comments:

The car is very comfortable from inside, however the steering box problem and tough suspension causes unsatisfactory feeling with the purchase.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
