It has been blatantly obvious to me that VW is at the bottom of the list of reliability for a reason. After years of owning Toyotas & Nissans I made the dismal decision to purchase a 2015 passat! I found out very quickly that although I love the way the car rides and performs, it is a electronic nightmare , suspension nightmare . The AC went out after 70,000 miles, clockspring, door lock actuator, and my sons Passat broke a valve spring at 50,000 miles !!! VW engineering is a joke ! and the cost to repair them is insane never again !
