2001 Volkswagen Passat from North America
I will never let my family or friends buy another Volkswagen Passat
A continuous headache after paying $22,000 hard earned for this car to get it off the lot, we had to dish out at least $350 quarterly for the last 2 years to keep it running. Engine lights, failed electric windows and locks, and transmission screen replacements eat us up until 1 month after the warranty expired. That's when the engine 1 block after the water pump blew. $4000 later back on the road. $850 again for engine lights and transmission. Right front headlight starts quivering. 1 year later, 118000 miles STOP oil light pops on. 1 mile later the engine blows. The dealer now wants $5000 to replace the lower half. Is there a lawyer reading this? My first thought was a Toyota. Wish I had stuck with it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Stop immediately if the oil light comes on in any car. If you have to keep driving for safety reasons realize that the engine will probably not survive.

Oil light means that there is no oil pressure. No oil pressure means that there is no oil lubricating your engine.
