2001 Volkswagen Passat 2.8 from North America
Never again will I buy a Volkswagen car
The car is a good car, but it's so full of problems, Volkswagen, why?
At first it was a moving machine, but after I made a journey of 500 miles, I noticed the gear was not selecting properly. I managed to get it to my place, and took it to a mechanic shop for repairs, and they told me that the transmission control module had gone bad, together with the gear box and range sensor. Ever since then it's been one problem to another, and the car is still parked down in my garage.
Volkswagen, if you can come pick the car from my garage for free, I would appreciate it. What a problematic car indeed. Enough is enough with me and Volkswagen.
Volkswagen should do away with transmission control module and range sensor, and look for better parts to replace them.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Sometimes in life you end up with a lemon and/or a money pit. Learn from your mistake... put some lipstick on it... clean it up and sell it... hopefully to a Volkswagen mechanic. But on your next car/truck/SUV, do your homework before you buy your next car. With today's Internet, there are so many websites that have the won and lost records of most cars out there. Don't make the same mistake again.

I agree with the previous comment, a bit of research on the Net before buying a car, which for most people is their second biggest purchase of their lives, costs nothing, yet can save so much misery in the long run.
