2001 Volkswagen Passat GLS 2.8L V6 DOHC 30V FI Engine from North America
An absolute disaster and waste of money
4K CD player defective and replaced
5k Total failure of power in car -- replaced instrument cluster
7K Running light replaced
13K Total failure of power in car, replaced transmission control nodule
19K Rear Truck lock replaced
20K Instrument panel flashing warnings on everything towed to dealer, rebooted and worked
20K Bar for transmission gear indication not functioning, rebooted on the dealer's computer and working, drove an hour and a half and same problem.
I have called WV Michigan 15 times and talked to 4 supervisors. They show no inclination to work with a car that is having intermittent problems and say just to take it back to the dealers. This is the worse customer support system I have ever encountered and I would never buy another WV again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
