2007 Volkswagen Passat Wagon

I leased an 07 3.6l wagon as a company car and wanted to report to those looking for such a car that you may want to look elsewhere.
I have had loads of problems from the minor annoyances (dashboard lights cutting on and off) to a couple of major problems (head blown with 3,000 miles and suspension replaced though faulty by design). I also do not want to forget the wretched radio/stereo they put in these vehicles. I am not a hardcore rocker but the reception is terrible, even listening to the local news report on the radio. Listening to a CD doesn't get much better.
I am displeased with the manner in which VW of America has handled my concerns in a letter I wrote to them. I harbor nothing against them. I am a white collar professional and in my business letters are returned and responded to. It's been 3 months and still have not received a response from VW.
When I leased the car, I considered the idea of purchasing it off-lease. I have revised my plans due to the myriad problems I have experienced with only 8,000 miles on the clock. I do not think my car is an isolated problem car as there seem to be many users here who have shared similar experiences both in wagon and sedan form.
Bottom line: Don't waste your time or your money
