I have a 2012 Passat and the oil pressure light comes on sometimes when the car reaches 4000 rpm. Has anyone else had this problem?

You would need to post in the B7 Forum.

This was an issue on the B5 1.8T due to oil sludge. If you have a 2.0T and if your car did not get synthetic oil, it could be the problem on yours.
Start with a mechanical oil pressure test to confirm the warning light is correct. If it is, pull the oil pan and check for sludge. The pan is pretty easy to remove on the transverse engines.
