2001 Volkswagen Passat GLS 2.8 V6 from North America
I enjoy most everything about my VW Passat, except for some mechanical issues
After having the brakes and rotors replaced, about 1500 miles later, I noticed that the instrument panel began flashing "Brake Fault," then "Stop," and then "Check Manual." At first the warning lights came on periodically, Later they came on more regularly. I had the vehicle checked with computer testing equipment and nothing was found to be wrong.
Now, every time I start the car, there's three (3) beeps and then those messages appear and don't go away till the engine is shut off. In the mean time, the brakes appear to be fine and work excellently. Twice my sensor module was checked and found to be okay. Other that the annoying warning lights and beeps, the brakes are great.
My vehicle is a 2001 VW Passat with the 2.8 V6 engine, and it has 4 motion for the drive system.
I really like my Passat, but wish the annoying problem would go away.
My Passat handles great and has plenty of power.
I don't like the cost of repairs, though!
There are some odd ball issues with this vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
