2002 Volkswagen Passat from North America Comments

13th Nov 2007,

My husband and I bought our oldest a used 2002 VW Passat Turbo in August #039;06, to get and forth to college. It had 90K miles on it, but to be in excellent condition — and out.

It was the most comfortable car I had driven. I#039;ve always a Honda fan, and was seriously switching my loyalty over to VW for my own purchase.

This car ran without until late September My daughter had the oil changed regularly between 4000 and 5000 and always using 5W30 Oil. All, but one of the oil changes done at a Kwik Lube in our town, as we do not have a VW dealership 65 miles. We changed the oil once at home.

In September, at approx. 114,000K, my called to tell me that her ENGINE STOP/OIL PRESS had come on. I had her drive it home. The was intermittent at first, probably for a week to 10 days. She only it to work, which is about 4 from our house from time on. We took it to a shop, and replaced the oil sending unit for an $61. Within a day, the light had come back on.

As I do, I referred to the Internet for help, and when I realized we had bigger The Internet is alive with Passat Turbo owners this exact problem. been going on since or 2004, and we just didn#039;t do the research when buying the I#039;m still mad at myself that!

Anyway, we had the car towed to a VW dealership, and they quoted us $600 to tear the engine down for I brought up the possible sludge The service lady gave me no argument, and told me that we have to present to her oil change showing regular changes and use of oil only. Thank God we kept all the (even for the purchase of the oil change we did at A couple of days later, we informed that it WAS a sludge and that VW had approved the replacement of the It was too easy, but I realized that knew by 2007 that had a design problem, even if weren#039;t quite ready to say it out

A week or so later, the car was ready to be up. My husband and I drove to pick it up, and informed we needed to pay a little $600. $324 was the towing fee though we had been quoted on the phone by the towing company) and for the Cam Position Sensor that had originally replaced (which was first diagnosis before we the sludge issue). We argued the CPS is technically part of the engine, and they knew ahead of that his car had engine problems. eventually discounted the cost for the but we had to pay the $324 towing fee just to get to release the car to us! I wasn#039;t happy, but we justifying in our minds that we had gotten a brand new engine for so we should just be grateful. all, my daughter had a car that now last her a great deal so we thought!

We picked the car up last Saturday We drove it home (approximately 65 making sure to never go the speed limit as the service had told us to take it easy on the for the first 1000 miles. My drove it the first time on to go on an 20 mile round-trip into and then I drove it last (Tuesday) once again on 20 mile trip to pick up a

This morning, my daughter up to leave for work, and when she out of our driveway. the CHECK ENGINE came on. It#039;s now, again, in our driveway unusable she drives my beat-up #039;96 Accord to work! I#039;m not where we#039;ll go from I hate the thought of dumping the car at a for them to resell, and just the problem to someone else, but we afford to continue making on a car that doesn#039;t run!

I personally never buy another VW again, and that until they do by those of us who have made devastating investment already, be letting everyone I know not to buy one We are going back to HONDA, and on staying there!
