2001 Volkswagen Passat GLS V6 from North America
Unpredictable parts longevity
Original factory brake rotors wrapped before needing any brake service.
All prior owned cars never experienced warped brake rotors. Clearly this is a manufacture's problem, but the car dealer says this can happen and will not warranty the parts. I never seen the wheel on a car wear out before the tire.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I have a Passat 2001 that had the same problem. Warped rear rotors after two years of use; not covered under VW warranty. Cost $465 to fix.

I had the exact same problem with my 1998 VW Passat. Rear rotars were warped and needed immediate replacement. This is obviously a reoccurring problem. Cheapest rotar cost with labor cost totaled 166.00.
