    I see in Consumer Report they are rating new VW's like the Passat and Golf to have predicted lower reliability. For the 2016's and later is that still true? What are the problems that are causing the low ratings? We have a 2016 Passat and have had zero issues.

    Did anyone else see this? A few surpises like Infiniti being among the worst but the rest were to be expected. Europe isn't doing so good. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/03/02/business/main1361945.shtml?CMP=OTC-RSSFeed&source=RSS&attr=U.S._1361945 Joe
