    I have an opportunity to buy a used 2009 VW Passat with low mileage. It has 75000 miles on the car. The price is 6000. It is a 4 door sedan. How reliable is this car? Do I only use premium gas in it? What issues should I be aware of prior to buying the vehicle. When I test drive it...

    I've been driving VW for over 10 years now, and I absolutely loved my 2007 Passat 3.6 Lux. Unfortunately, I was read ended at a red light a couple of weekends ago and my '07 Passat is now more. :cry: Now, I'm in the market for a new car and I've found a used 2014 Passat 3.6 SEL (49K miles) at...

    Hi all, I'm a Toyota person. I've owned Camrys for over 10 years, so reliability is something I take for granted. However, I'm ready to purchase a new vehicle and have been looking into a 2014 Passat TSI. It comes nicely equipped, and it looks really nice and handsome. My only concern is the...

    My 04 Passat 1.8T engine started dumping oil into the coolant so I junked it rather than throw good money after bad. Is the 6-cylinder engine any more reliable than the 1.8T? I'm considering an 03 V6 4motion. Thanks.

    I purchased a brand new Passat 1.8T in 2001 (it's the 2001.5 model). The problems started appearing at around 4k miles. Little things that the warranty covered. Then, the things got bigger...then the warranty expired. It seems like it's in the shop every 2-3 months on average. $200 here, $300...

    I wanted more up-to-date car reliability information that included actual repair rates. So a few years ago I started getting people together to make this possible. TrueDelta now updates actual repair frequencies, not just dots, four times a year, to track cars closely as they age. We've had...
