Volkswagen Of America - PASSAT TDI SEL 2012 WARNING! LEMON!
2014 i have kept the passat 2012 tdi SEL, and this are my comments;
the car save gas,
all the problems that i complain about the car still there, i got tired of taking the car to the dealer and they never were able to fix the issues, the gas problem end up with the replacement of the entire fuel system from the tank to the injectors and at the end VW states that there was particles from the fuel pump in the system at a VW cost of $7000.00 so i am very scare that now my warranty is almost gone.
the rattle noise is because of the poor plastic materials in the car, i see the rubber that goes around the doors getting all crack for a car that have only 2 years of use, i have put 34000 miles on it and yes i drive a lot because of my job, the gas *** is loose and that have been replace 3 times by VW, it gets air in to the tank because of the lack of closing grip from it and that creates the check engine light to turn on, the maintenance is so expensive and the parts as well, i would have ned up better buying a Mercedes or BMW. good luck
i want to apologize for my bad english, i am not american but i do love this country as much as i love mine.
How can you not be upset when you buy a car that make you spend more time at the dealer fixing defects instead of enjoying your new car!, well thats what i have with my Brand New PASSAT TDI SEL 2012;
THE FIRST DAY THAT I PURCHASE THE CAR;
i have to leave it at the dealer to fix the back panel where the subwoofer is at because the entire interior of the car rattle like a snake when listen to the "FEDER" SOUND SYSTEM, and the fuel gauge was not showing a full tank when full tank, i went to pick up my car THE NEXT DAY and more problems; the car when cold stalls, the transmission down shift hard, the door panels rattle like an old car, the sun roof have noises, the fuel gauge wasn't fix, sometimes doesn't work at all, when fueling the car the hose stops at 3/4 of a tank and if i want to full the tank i have to do it so slowly that i spent 5 minutes FUELING until is finally full.
OH AND DONT EVEN THINK THAT IS JUST MY CAR AND YOUR PASSAT IS GOING TO BE PERFECT BECAUSE THE 4 TIMES THAT THEY GAVE ME A RENTAL THE REPRESENTATIVE AT THE RENTAL PLACE TOLD ME THAT IN THE LAST 4 MONTHS MOST RENTALS ARE GIVEN TO PEOPLE WITH NEW PASSATS TDI AND THEY WERE ALL COMPLAINING!!
YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT VOLKSWAGEN AMERICA IS DOING FOR ME: they gave me back the car with the same problems after going back to the dealer #3 times, they haven't fix the problem, they say the fuel system compromise the engine and the transmission. let me ask you people who see this, is not a lemon when you take a new car for the same issues 3 times?
YES IT IS and volkswagen had order the replacement on the fuel system twice and the car still stalls and the transmission down shift very hard and the fuel gauge is still working erratically. IF YOU THINK THAT THIS WONT HAPPEN TO YOU, WELL WAIT UNTILL YOU PUT MORE MILES IN YOUR PASSAT TDI 2012 AND YOU WILL SEE, i purchase this PASSAT TDI ON DECEMBER 2012 IS BEEN 3 MONTHS AND 10 DAYS OF *** AND 10000 MILES ALREADY!! IMAGINE WHATS GOING TO HAPPEN WHEN THE WARRANTY EXPIRES???? I warn everybody of Volkswagen ways, YOU WILL LOOSE!!!
if you think in buying a PASSAT TDI SEL 2012 I WONT DO IT!!! you will regret it!!!, spent $37.000 dollars in something else!!
TODAY WED/18/04/12 MY PASSAT IS STILL AT THE DEALER! THEY TOLD ME THAT NEXT WEEK BY TUESDAY /24/04/12 THE CAR WILL BE READY!
