2002 Volkswagen Passat gls 1.8t from North America
Decent car when it's running, but mostly it's being serviced with minor yet expensive problems
Engine camshaft problems.
Dirty valves had to be cleaned.
Bad catalytic converter.
Lots of other problems that I can't think of at the moment.
Bad turbo chip.
Car handles great and has a very nice ride.
Service is AWFUL. Catalytic converter was under warranty and dealers said that it "wasn't broken enough". Instead they charged me for other repairs. Brought the car back several times until it was broken enough. incredibly frustrating and a waste of time.
Very nice standard features.
Never has left me stranded.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
