- ABS Failure, Electric Parking Brake Fault
My 2006 Passat, while a very attractive car, ran well for the first year (I drive less than 7000 per year). With less than 11000 miles now, this car has been serviced 7 times in the last three months where an attempt has been made to correct a parking brake fault and ABS warning indicator. The maintenance of the car has been addressed by one of the best mechanics in the Triangle, NC area but even he is stumped and the latest drama unfolded as the car has spent several days at the dealership with the technician scratching his head trying to figure out how to get me up and running.
The experience has been time consuming and enormously insulting given the low mileage AND the cost of this so-called "value edition." I went out on a limb to purchase this car when everyone told me to stay away from Volkswagens. A relatively new car with low mileage and we're talking about major "system failures?" Unacceptable and once this car is repaired, it's time to trade in for another manufacturer. VW seems to miss the point. People have multiple choices and it's only a matter of time before people get the message and run this company out of the U.S. car market. I feel badly for my dealership which has tried desperately to fix this lemon!!
I will never buy another VW product. Lesson learned - a painful/expensive lesson, but a lesson learned nonetheless. This company is astonishingly unconcerned that the quality of the product is so poor. I shudder when I think of the time and money I've wasted over the past year. Never, never, never again. Think twice, three times, google VWs, ask your friends and colleagues, and hopefully you'll avoid making the same mistake this author and so many others have made.
