VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on May 06, 2002.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT . HAVE CONTACTED VW CUSTOMER SERVICE AND REQUESTED FOR COVERAGE SINCE THIS IS QUITE A COMMON PROBLEM ON PASSAT. HOWEVER, VW REFUSED TO COVER, NOT EVEN HALF THE COST! OTHER PASSAT OWNERS HAVE AT LEAST GOT ALL PARTS COVERED BY VW! THE TOTAL COST SUM UP WITH UP TO $1000. THE MAIN PROBLEM HAPPENING IS BASICALLY I HEARD CONSISTENT CLUNKING NOISE WHEN TURNING UNDER LOW SPEED, GOING OVER A BUMP, AND OCCASIONAL BRAKING. ACCORDING TO WHAT I HAVE HEARD, THIS IS CALLED THE "LOWER CONTROL ARM FAILURE" AND THERE'S A BULLETIN IN VW THAT THIS IS RECOGNIZED AS A PROBLEM AND SERVICE PROVIDERS ARE INFOMED TO INSTALL PARTICULAR COMPONENTS TO FIX THE PROBLEM. I THINK THIS IS QUITE A CRITICAL PART FOR THE CAR AS WE DON'T WANT THE CAR TO LOSE CONTROL EXPECIALLY TURNING. AND THE MOST THING THAT PISSED ME OFF IS THAT VWOA REFUSED TO COVER SOME COSTS! I KNOW AT LEAST AN OWNER GOT IT ALL COVERED BY CONTACTING VWOA! THE FIRST NOTICING OF THE NOISE WAS AT AROUND 40000 MILES BUT SUNNYVALE VW REFERRED THAT THIS IS A NOISE COMING OUT FROM THE ENGINE PUMP WHICH IS LEAKING AT THAT TIME. NOISE OF COURSE DIDN'T RESOLVE AND I DIDN'T EVEN BOTHER TO ASK AS THEY CAN'T DETECT IT. HOPEFULLY, I CAN GET SOME HELP FROM NHTSA.

CONTROL ARM ON LEFT FRONT WHEEL HAS BEGUN CREAKING VERY LOUDLY AND I HAVE BEEN TOLD IT IS ABOUT TO FAIL. ON MOST CARS THE CONTROL ARMS ARE BUILT TO LAST THE LIFE OF THE CAR, SO AT ONLY 60,000 MILES THIS IS DEFINITELY A PROBLEM.

ALSO, THE PART WAS RE-ENGINEERED FOR 2001 MODEL PASSATS, INDICATING VOLKSWAGEN IS WELL AWARE OF THE PROBLEM. IF THIS PART IS FAILING ON BASICALLY ALL 98-2000 MODEL YEAR VOLKSWAGEN PASSATS, IT SEEMS LIKE ONLY A MATTER OF TIME UNTIL A CATASTROPHIC FAILURE CAUSES AN ACCIDENT, UNLESS A RECALL IS ISSUED IN THE UNITED STATES.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on Feb 14, 2003.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with POWER TRAIN:CLUTCH ASSEMBLY . I WAS HEADING HOME AND BARELY ON THE TURNPIKE, WHEN I HEARD A BIG BANG AND I COULD NOT SHIFT GEARS ANYMORE. I HAD SOME TROUBLE TO GET MY CAR THROUGH THE TRAFFIC FROM THE HIGH-SPEED LEFT LANE TO A SAFE SPOT AND CALLED THE TOWING SERVICE. I WAS ABOUT 140 MILES AWAY FROM HOME AND THE COST, AFTER THE ROADSIDE INSURANCE PAID ITS PART, WAS $400. AS IT TURNS OUT, THE PRESSURE PLATE OF THE CLUTCH BROKE INTO 3 PIECES. I WAS VERY LUCKY, AND SO WERE THE DRIVERS AROUND ME, THAT THE PROBLEM HAPPENED AT LOW SPEED SINCE THE BROKEN PIECES COULD HAVE EASILY TURNED INTO MISSILES, NOT TO MENTION THE INABILITY TO CONTROL THE CAR IN HEAVY TRAFFIC. ALTHOUGH THE CAR IS OUT OF WARRANTY, SINCE THE MILEAGE IS STILL VERY LOW, I BELIEVE THAT THE DEFECT IS SO UNUSUAL AND THE POTENTIAL EFFECTS OF SUCH A FAILURE ARE SO DANGEROUS THAT MANUFACTURER DOES BEAR A CONTINUED RESPONSIBILITY. ON 2/18/03 I INFORMED THE MANUFACTURER THAT I EXPECTED THEM TO CONFIRM REIMBURSING ME FULLY FOR THE $400 TOWING COST AND TO BEAR AT LEAST HALF OF THE COST OF $912 FOR REPLACING THE CLUTCH, $456. I ALSO OFFERED TO SEND COPIES OF THE RECEIPTS. THE BROKEN PARTS CAN ALSO BE INSPECTED IF YOU WHISH AT MY RESIDENCE OR AT A CONVENIENTLY LOCATED PLACE OF YOUR CHOICE. SINCE I DID NOT HEAR FROM THE MANUFACTURER SINCE THEY ACKNOWLEDGED ON 2/19/03 RECEIPT OF MY EMAIL AND PROMISED ACTION WITHIN 48 HRS., THEY DO NOT SEEM TO BE TAKING RESPONSIBILITY. THEREFORE, I WILL HAVE TO CONCLUDE THAT THIS PROBLEM, RATHER THAN BEING A FREAK EXCEPTION, IS RATHER A FREQUENT OCCURRENCE AND THEREFORE I FEEL THAT IT IS MY OBLIGATION TO GO PUBLIC WITH THE CASE, SO THAT AS MANY CONSUMERS AS POSSIBLE CAN BE PROTECTED FROM A SIMILAR DANGEROUS EVENT WHILE DRIVING A VOLKSWAGEN.*JB.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 39000 miles.

THE PREMATURE FAILURE OF THESE PARTS IS BY NOW WELL KNOWN, QUITE EXPENSIVE, AND POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS, NOT TO MENTION INCONVENIENT TO VW CUSTOMERS. VW HAS DONE VERY LITTLE TO ADDRESS THIS POTENTIAL SAFETY ISSUE. THE ONLY RECOURSE IS TO PAY EXORBITANT SUMS, REPEATEDLY, OVER TIME TO REPLACE THE DEFECTIVE PARTS WITH EQUALLY DEFECTIVE PARTS WHICH ALSO FAIL PREMATURELY; THERE IS NO PERMANENT SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM. THERE NEEDS TO BE A RECALL OR AT THE VERY LEAST VW SHOULD BE FIXING THESE CARS FOR FREE EACH TIME, NO QUESTIONS ASKED..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 62000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WVWMA63B1XE. Volkswagen Passat 1999 problem was reported in MALDEN, MA. Original Owner. Vehicle was purchased on 19991004.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 Suspension Front Control Arm Lower Arm Report #10013655

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on Mar 13, 2003.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM:LOWER ARM . I AM EXPERIENCING A CREAKING SOUND COMING FROM THE LOWER CONTROL ARM BUSHINGS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE VEHICLE. FROM THE NHTSA SITE, I HAVE NOW LEARNED THAT FAILED LOWER CONTROL ARMS AND BUSHINGS ARE A COMMON PROBLEM IN THE PASSAT. THE VEHICLE WAS JUST PURCHASED "CERTIFIED" USED FROM VW FOUR MONTHS AGO WITH 34,000 MILES. I RETURNED THE CAR TO THE DEALER, WHO SAID THAT THE LOWER CONTROL ARM BUSHINGS WERE "JUST DRY FROM ROAD SALT", AND PROCEEDED TO HOSE THE BUSHINGS DOWN WITH AN AEROSOL CAN OF LUBRICANT. HE SAID THAT IF THIS DID NOT ELIMINATE THE NOISE (IT DIDN'T) THEN I MIGHT WISH TO RETURN IN A WEEK OR SO FOR THEM TO INVESTIGATE FURTHER. IT IS OBVIOUS FROM THE OTHER COMPLAINTS I HAVE READ WHAT THE PROBLEM IS. IF THIS VEHICLE'S LOWER CONTROL ARMS FAIL AS FREQUENTLY AS OTHER OWNERS ON THIS SITE HAVE INDICATED, WITH THE ONLY WARNING BEING A DULL CREAKING NOISE, IT IS CONCEIVABLE THAT MOST ORDINARY DRIVERS WOULD NEVER HAVE THE PROBLEM INVESTIGATED. THOSE THAT DO WOULD FIND THAT THE REPAIR IS EXTENSIVE AND EXPENSIVE. IT IS LIKELY THAT SOME OF THESE MAY CHOOSE TO DELAY OR NEGLECT THE SITUATION. BOTH SCENARIOS POSE A UNIQUE AND SERIOUS SAFETY THREAT TO THE OPERATORS AND OCCUPANTS OF THE VW PASSAT. THERE ARE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF THESE VEHICLES ON THE ROAD, AND ALL APPARENTLY SHARE IN WHAT IS AN OBVIOUS DESIGN FLAW THAT CREEPS UP EVERY 25 TO 40 THOUSAND MILES IN SPITE OF VERY EXPENSIVE REPLACEMENT. FAILURE OF A LOWER CONTROL ARM COULD EASILY CAUSE A CRASH. VW SHOULD DO THE RIGHT THING BY ACKNOWLEDGING THIS ENGINEERING FAILURE AND VOLUNTARILY RECALL THESE VEHICLES IMMEDIATELY FOR THE SAFETY AND WELL BEING OF ITS CUSTOMERS. *NLM.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 38000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on Apr 02, 2003.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM:LOWER BALL JOINT . 1999 VW PASSAT. FRONT SUSPENSION PROBLEMS. REFER TO TSB 4001-01. I BROUGHT MY 1999 PASSAT TO THE DEALER REGARDING A NOISY FRONT SUSPENSION PROBLEM AND INFORMED THEM OF A TSB ON THE VEHICLE. I WAS INFORMED THAT VW PROVIDES A REPAIR KIT FOR THIS PROBLEM THAT REQUIRES THE REPLACEMENT OF THE LOWER CONTROL ARM ASSEMBLY. WHICH INCLUDES THE DEFECTIVE BALL JOINTS (BOTH SIDES). THE DEALER INFORMED ME THAT VW WILL NOT COVER THE REPAIR AND THAT THE COST TO ME WOULD BE $875.00. SPOKE WITH VW REPRESENTATIVES ON APRIL 2 AND WAS GIVEN A DECISION ON 4/9 THAT THEY WOULD NOT ASSIST WITH THE COST IN ANY WAY SINCE "THIS COULD ALSO BE CAUSED BY NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR". THIS ASSERTION, IN MY OPINION IS BOGUS SINCE A. VW KNOWS THERE IS A PROBLEM, HENCE THE TSB. PROVIDE A "KIT" TO REPAIR THE DEFECT. THE CASE NUMBER IS 30164333.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on Dec 03, 2003.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL:ACCELERATOR PEDAL . FOR 2 YEARS NOW, ON COLD DAYS (TEMPS IN THE TEENS) THERE HAVE BEEN OCCASIONS (ABOUT 5) WHERE THE ACCELERATOR STICKS IN THE ACCELERATING POSITION. ADJUSTING THE PEDAL POSITION HAS NO EFFECT ON SLOWING THE CAR DOWN. IN FACT, THERE WERE TIMES WHEN THE ONLY WAY TO STOP THE CAR WAS TO SHUT THE ENGINE OFF. THIS ACTUALLY CAUSES LOSS OF POWER BRAKES AND STEERING AND MAKES IT MORE DIFFICULT TO MAINTAIN CONTROL. AFTER WAITING ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD FOR ABOUT 5 TO 10 MINUTES, YOU CAN START THE CAR AND EVERYTHING IS BACK TO NORMAL. THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS AND PERHAPS A LIFE THREATENING CONDITION. THE CAR HAS A 2.8 LITER V6 WITH AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. I HAVE A FRIEND WHO HAD AN AUDI A6 QUATRO (1999) WITH THE SAME 2.8 V6 AND HAD THE SAME ISSUE. AFTER SPENDING SEVERAL HUNDRED DOLLARS TRYING TO GET IT RESOLVED WITH NO LUCK, HE SOLD THE CAR. THIS DOESN'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM, BUT IT MAY KEEP HIS FAMILY ALIVE. *NLM.Mileage was 80000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 Suspension Front Control Arm Report #10060203

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on Mar 02, 2004.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM . THE VEHICLE IS A 1999 VOLKWAGEN PASSAT. I TOOK IT IN FOR REGULAR MAINTENANCE AT 48,000 MILES AND FOR MY STATE SAFETY INSPECTION. SINCE I HAD JUST BEGUN HEARING NOISES IN THE FRONT OF THE CAR, I ASKED THAT IT BE LOOKED INTO. THE DEALER INFORMED ME THAT THE CAR, ALBEIT IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AND ROUTINELY MAINTAINED, WOULD NOT PASS STATE INSPECTION DUE TO A SERIOUS PROBLEM WITH THE CONTROL ARMS. IF THE PROBLEM WAS NOT CORRECTED THE CAR COULD LOSE CONTROL AND CRASH. THE DEALER INFORMED ME THAT A RECALL HAD BEEN ISSUED (RECALL UL) FOR THIS EXACT PROBLEM ON THE SAME MAKE AND MODEL AND YEAR OF CAR. BUT, THAT FOR NO EXPLAINABLE REASON MY VIN WAS NOT COVERED UNDER THE RECALL. I IMMEDIATELY CONTACTED VW AND THEY CONCURRED BUT COULDN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. THIS IS NOT ONLY UNETHICAL, BUT VW IS ALLOWING PEOPLE TO DRIVE AROUND WITH CARS THAT THEY KNOW HAVE A SERIOUS DEFECT. NOT ONLY DIDN'T VW COVER ALL THE APPLICABLE VINS IN THEIR RECALL, BUT THEY DID NOT INFORM THEIR CONSUMERS OFTHE POTENTIAL PROBLEM. ACCORDING TO THE DEALER, THIS PROBLEM, IF LEFT UNCORRECTED, COULD CAUSE SERIOUS HARM IF THE CONTROL ARMS FAILED AT HIGH SPEED. VW WILL NOT RECOGNIZE THIS PROBLEM. IT SHOULD BE NOTED ONCE AGAIN, THAT THIS DEFECT IN THE CONTROL ARMS OCCURED AT ONLY 48,000 MILES. NOT ONLY DID I HAVE TO PAY $1200 FOR A SERIOUS, AND ACKNOWLEDGED, DESIGN DEFECT, BUT THE REPAIR PARTS THAT WERE INSTALLED ARE EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE POORLY DESIGNED ONES. THIS PROBLEM WILL HAPPEN AGAIN. THE ONLY QUESTION IS WHEN. THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD LOOK INTO THIS BEFORE SOMEONE GETS SERIOUSLY HURT OR EVEN KILLED. VW REFUSES TO STAND BY THEIR PRODUCT. THE DEALER HAS INDICATED THAT THIS IS SUCH A COMMON PROBLEM THAT THEY STOCK THE FRONT END REPAIR KIT. IF IT IS SO COMMON WHY AREN'T ALL THE APPLICABLE VINS COVERED?.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 48000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WVWMA63B8XE.

I BEGAN TO NOTICE AN OCCASIONAL CREAKING/KNOCKING NOISE COMING FROM THE FRONT END OF THE CAR ABOUT SIX MONTHS AGO . ABOUT A MONTH AGO THE NOISE BECAME BAD ENOUGH FOR ME TO TAKE IT TO THE DEALERSHIP TO TRY AND DIAGNOSE. I DESCRIBED THE NOISE IN GREAT DETAIL. SERVICE DEPT SAYS THEY DROVE THE CAR AND DIDN'T HEAR ANYTHING, BUT THAT THE NOISE WAS PROBABLY DUE TO MY BRAKE PADS BEING WORN DOWN SO FAR I HAD METAL AGAINST METAL. NEW BRAKE PADS AND ROTORS: $1250. CHA-CHING.*AK NEXT DAY DRIVING TO WORK I STILL HEAR THE CREAKING/KNOCKING NOISE. I TAKE IT BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP, VERY IRATE. THEY SAY THEY'LL DRIVE IT AGAIN AND GIVE IT ANOTHER LISTEN. THIS TIME THEY DO HEAR SOMETHING AND INFORM ME THAT IT'S "JUST A LOOSE CONTROL ARM, " THAT IT'S "EXPENSIVE TO FIX" AND THAT "[THEY] DON'T EVEN HAVE THE PARTS ON HAND." BUT THE GUY ASSURES ME THAT THE NOISE IS ONLY AN ANNOYANCE ISSUE AND NOT A SAFTY CONCERN. THE NOISE IS CONSANT NOW AND VERY, VERY BAD. I WAS ACTUALLY GETTING A TOASTY, SMOKY ODOR COMING FROM THE CAR WHEN DRIVING ACROSS TOWN THE OTHER DAY..Mileage was 43000 miles. Volkswagen Passat 1999 problem was reported in LEXINGTON, MA.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on Apr 10, 2004.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with STEERING:LINKAGES . I AM CONCERN WITH THE FRONT SUSPENSION OF MY CAR. I TOOK IN THE CAR FOR AN 80,000 MILE VOLKSWAGEN RECOMMENDED CHECK UP. I EXPLAINED TO SERVICE TECHNICIAN THAT THERE IS A NOISE IN THE FROT SUSPENSION. THAT NOISE HAD BEEN THERE SINCE I GOT THE CAR AT AROUND 65,000 MILES. I EXPLAINED TO THE TECHNICIAN THAT I HAD CALLED VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA BECAUSE THROUGH CARFAX I FOUND OUT THAT THERE WAS AN ISSUE WITH THE FRON SUSPENSION OF THE 1999 VOLKSWAGEN PASSAN 1.8 TURBO GLS. VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA TOLD ME THAT THEY HAD NOT ISSUED A RECALL YET. SO I TOLD THE TECHNICIAN TO CHECK FOR ME AGAIN TO SEE IF THERE WAS A RECALL ISSUED TO THE FRON SUSPENSION. HE SAID NO AND HE MENTIONED THAT TO FIX THE SUSPENSION PROBLEM I WILL HAVE TO REPLACE THE SUSPENSION STEERING LINKAGES AND OTHER COMPONENTS. HE GAVE ME AN ESTIMATE FOR THE FIX AT AROUND $1200.00 DOLLARS. 2 WEEKENDS AGO I WENTO TO A VOLKSWAGEN SWAP MEET AND FOUND OUT THAT A FEW OTHER PASSAT DRIVERS WERE HAVING THE SAME ISSUE WITH THEIR SUSPENSIONS. I HAVE BEEN A VOLKSWAGEN DRIVER FOR 17 YEARS. I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY SUSPENSION PROBLEMS OF THIS KIND WITH ANY OF THE VOLKSWAGEN CARS I OWNED.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 Suspension Front Control Arm Lower Arm Report #10074888

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on July 30, 1999.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM:LOWER ARM . CONTROL ARM'S OF '1998-'2000 PASSATS ARE FAILURE PRONE MUCH EARLIER THEN THE NORM FOR PASSANEGER AUTOMOBILES. (A FACT THEY RECOGNIZED BY A REDESIGN OF THE CONTROL ARMS ON '2001 AND UP PASSAT'S. I PURCHASED MY CAR IN 7/99. I DRIVE 70 MILES A DAY, MOSTLY FREEWAY, WHICH AS ALL KNOW IS ACTUALLY VERY EASY ON AN AUTOMOBILE. YET WITH-IN 2 YEARS (40K) MY FRONT SUSPENSION WAS SHOWING SIGNS OF PREMATURE WEAR. I GET MANY "CREAKS" AND "CLUNKS" THAT ARE EASY TO HEAR AT LOW SPEEDS. AFTER RESEARCHING IN POPULAR INTERNET FORUMS FOR THE CAR,(WWW.CLUBB5.COM , WWW.VWVORTEX.COM) I FOUND OUT THIS FAILURE IS VERY COMMON FOR THIS AUTOMOBILE. VMOA (VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA) HAS NOT ISSUED A RECALL YET (EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE RECEIVED THOUSANDS OF COMPLAINTS) AS OF THIS LATE DATE. (6/04) THE RESPONSE FROM VWOA AND YOUR DEALER NETWORK HAS BEEN INCONSISTENT, TO SAY THE LEAST. SOME DEALERS WILL NOT EVEN LOOK AT THE CAR, SOME WILL LOOK AT IT AND SAY NOTHING IS WRONG, AND SOME WILL SAY THAT IT IS THE CONTROL ARMS, BUT WILL NOT HELP OUT THE OWNER WHEN THE TIME COMES TO CONTACT THE CUSTOMER CARE CENTER AT VWOA . VWOA IS NOT MUCH MORE HELP, PROMISING TO GET ON THE PROBLEM AND TELLING YOU THEY WILL CALLBACK, ONLY THEY DONT. OR IF THEY DO ,IT IS, SORRY WE CANNOT HELP YOU.. SO WHAT HAPPENS IS THAT MANY OF THE OWNERS THAT ARE OUT OF WARRANTY, MUST PAY FOR A COSTLY REPAIR OUT OF POCKET. A REPAIR THAT SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED. (I HAVE NEVER HAD CONTROL ARM BUSHING FAILURE IN MY PREVIOUS 13 AUTOMOBILES!) REPAIR COSTS RUN OVER $700 FOR PARTS, AND THE SAME AMOUNT IN LABOR. I AM PURCHASING MY CAR FROM THE BANK SOON. OVERALL IT IS A GREAT CAR. I MUST REPLACE THE CONTROL ARMS VERY SOON. I DONT LOOK FORWARD TO THAT AND THE HIGH COST IT WILL RUN ME. I WISH FOR VMOA TO TREAT ITS CUSTOMERS LIKE A MODERN CUSTOMER FOCUSED COMPANY. BAD DESIGNS HAPPEN. THEY OWE IT TO THEIR CUSTOMERS TO MAKE IT RIGHT. THANK YOU. JOHN E.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 Suspension Front Control Arm Lower Arm Report #10074928

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on June 03, 2004.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM:LOWER ARM . BUSHING HAS DRIED OUT ON LOWER CONTROL ARM ON ONE SIDE RESULTING IN FREQUENT LOUD CREEKING / SQUEEKING NOISES. WHEN MAKING APPOINTMENT WITH DEALER I ASKED IF IT WAS A SAFETY PROBLEM AND SHOULD I RUSH THE CAR IN. THEY SAID "NO, IT'S PROBABLY JUST A DRY BUSHING" AND SCHEDULED ME FOR 10 DAYS LATER. WHEN I LEARNED OF THE $1200 REPAIR COST AND THE NEED TO KEEP THE CAR OVERNIGHT, I HAD TO RESCHEDULE THE APPOINTMENT. AGAIN, ANOTHER 12 DAYS WAIT (YET TO COME). IF THIS IS TRUELY NOT A SAFETY ISSUE, THEN FINE, BUT INFO ON THIS SITE IS TO THE CONTRARY. BESIDES, WHY DO SUPPOSE THEY CALL THEM "CONTROL ARMS?" IF THEY MAL FUNCTION COULD THAT MEAN LOSS OF CONTROL? HMMM. 85K MILES ON THIS CAR, BUT IN RETROSPECT, THE NOISE STARTED A LONG TIME AGO AND THE DEALER ATTRIBUTED IT TO LACK OF STEERING FLUID. THE NOISE RETURNED AND CAME BACK. THIS CAR HAS A LOT OF HIGHWAY MILES. I'LL BET THE FAILURE IS TIME BASED RATHER THAN MILAGE BASED. THESE RUBBER BUSING CAN ONLY TAKE SO MUCH EXPOSURE TO THE ELEMENTS. VW - CHANGE THE MATERIAL FOR YOUR BUSHINGS, RIGHT!!*AK.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 60000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WVWMA63B8XE.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on June 11, 2004.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, OTHER:FUEL INJECTION SYSTEM . ON 6/10/2004, I HAD MY VW PASSAT REPAIRED AT MITCHELL VOLKSWAGEN, CANTON, CT, FOR ROUGH IDLE AND CHECK ENGINE LIGHT. DEALER FOUND SCAN CODES FOR CYLINDER #2 MISFIRES AND RANDOM/MULTIPLE MISFIRES. DEALER REPLACED ICM IGNITION CONTROL MODULE AND CLEARED FAULT. THEN DEALER ATTEMPTED TO SET BASIC SETTINGS AND A NEW PROBLEM WAS GENERATED, THROTTLE BODY WOULD NOT ADAPT. I NOW HAVE A CONTINUOUS CHECK ENGINE LIGHT. DEALER DID NOT EXPLAIN WHY THEY TRIED TO SET THE BASIC SETTINGS FOR THE REPLACEMENT OF THE ICM. IT IS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT IF THE BASIC SETTINGS ARE NOT PERFORMED CORRECTLY A MALFUNCTION TO THE THROTTLE VALVE CONTROL CAN OCCUR. THE DEALER TOLD ME THE THIS PROBLEM MAY BE SELF CORRECTING. IF IT DOES CORRECT ITSELF, I NEED TO REPLACE THE THROTTLE BODY FOR APPROX. $500.00. I HAVE SPENT MORE THAN $539.00 TO HAVE MY ICM REPLACED AND NOW HAVE A NEW PROBLEM. NOW I AM TOLD "MAY REQUIRE REPLACEMENT OF THE THROTTLE BODY TO CORRECT, WILL NOT CAUSE VEHICLE TO RUN ROUGH, MAY CAUSE SURGING AT IDLE OR SLIGHT HESTITATION ON ACCELERATION, PART NEEDS TO BE ORDERED. IT MAY CORRECT ITSELF IN 200 MILES. THE DEALER SAID IT'S OK TO DRIVE THE VEHICLE UNDER THESE CONDITIONS (CHECK ENGINE LIGHT AND HESTITATION AND SURGING). I CONTACTED VW CUSTOMER SERVICE AND THEY AGREE WITH THE DEALER. I THINK THIS IS A MANUFUCTURE'S DEFECT IN DESIGN AND YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE TO DRIVE A VEHICLE WITH A CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WITH HESTITATION AND POSSIBLE SURGING, THESE ARE SAFETY ISSUES.

I CALLED VWOA TO INQUIRE WHETHER THEY WOULD BE WILLING TO PAY FOR THE REPAIRS, BUT THEY DECLINED. CONTROL ARMS ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO FAIL EASILY, CERTAINLY NOT HAVE JOINTS BLOWN UP AS IN MY CASE. ALMOST ALL OF MY MILES ARE HIGHWAY MILES, AND I HAVEN'T BEEN HITTING POTHOLES OR DRIVE OFF-ROAD FOR THE PROBLEM TO BE ATTRIBUTED TO NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR. I AM SURPRISED NHTSA HASN'T INVESTIGATED THE ISSUE OR ORDER A RECALL, SINCE THIS IS SUCH A COMMON PROBLEM IN PASSATS, THE NUMBER OF COMPLAINTS SO HIGH, AND A FAILURE COMPROMISES ROAD SAFETY SIGNIFICANTLY (FAILURE OF THE CONTROL ARMS CAN CAUSE LOSS OF STEERING AND LEAD TO CRASH OR EVEN DEATH). *NM.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 79000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 Engine And Engine Cooling Report #10110271

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on Feb 07, 2005.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . I AM WRITING ABOUT ENGINE FAILURE REGARDING A 1999 VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1.8T. I PURCHASED THE CAR IN 2003 AT 29,000 MILES AND THE CAR CURRENTLY HAS AROUND 77,000. VOLKSWAGEN HAS AN EXTENDED WARRANTY THAT STATES (TO SOME DEGREE) THAT IF THE ENGINE FAILS DUE TO SLUDGE AND IS UNDER 80,000 MILES THE OWNER WILL BE ABLE TO HAVE THEIR ENGINE REPLACED, 'IF' THEY HAVE RECORDS OF ALL OIL CHANGES (OF NOT MORE THAN 5,000 MILES). MY COMPLAINT IS THIS, I DO NOT HAVE ALL THE RECORDS SINCE ONE OF THE LOCATIONS THAT I WENT TO NO LONGER HAS A RECORD OF OIL CHANGES DUE TO A COMPUTER MALFUNCTION. ADDITIONALLY, WHEN I CALLED VOLKSWAGEN'S 'CUSTOMER ADVOCATE' THEY INDICATED THAT THE DECISION IS REALLY UP TO THE AREA SERVICE MANAGER WHO CAN ARBITRARILY DECIDE TO REPAIR OR NOT REPAIR THE VEHICLE. THUS, MY COMPLAINT IS THAT VOLKSWAGEN KNOWS THAT THEIR ENGINE HAS A PROBLEM AND WILL NOT FIX IT. I HAVE ASKED TO HAVE THEM SEND ME A COPY OF THEIR WARRANTY INDICATING THIS, BUT WANTED TO LODGE A COMPLAINT AGAINST THE COMPANY FOR THE 1999 VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1.8T WITH THE HOPES OF AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE ENGINE AND WHETHER IT IS FAULTY. THANK YOU.*AK.Mileage was 77000 miles. Volkswagen Passat 1999 problem was reported in BALTIMORE, MD. Vehicle was purchased on 20030619. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 Service Brakes, Hydraulic Antilock Report #10110465

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on Dec 20, 2004.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:ANTILOCK . I A 1999 VW PASSAT GLS 1.8T. I HAVE EXPERIENCED AN INTERMITTENT ABS WARNING LIGHT ISSUE SINCE MID DECEMBER 2004. WHEN IT FIRST CAME ON I PROMPTLY TOOK THE CAR TO MY REGULAR/LOCAL VW DEALERSHIP (POWER VOLKSWAGON, TORRANCE, CA) WHO REPORTED THAT THEY COULD NOT FIND A PROBLEM, AND SAID THEY RESET THE SYSTEM. WITHIN A FEW DAYS THE ABS LIGHT WAS ON AGAIN AND I RETURNED IT TO THE DEALERSHIP AND THIS TIME THEY KEPT IT FOR A FEW DAYS TO TRY TO DETERMINE THE PROBLEM AND REPORTED THAT THEY HAD IDENTIFIED THE PROBLEM AS A WIRING PROBLEM AND RECOMMENDED REPLACING THE ABS WIRING TO THE SENSORS (COST UNDER $500). AFTER GETTING THE VEHICLE BACK THE LIGHT WAS AGAIN ON INTERMITTENTLY (NOT AS MUCH AS BEFORE) AND THIS TIME THEY SAID THE ONLY OTHER SOLUTION IS TO REPLACE THE ABS CONTROL MODULE (QUOTED $1,500 PARTS AND $300 LABOR). GIVEN THE FACT THAT I HAD JUST SPENT $500 ON ABS WIRING THAT THEY SAID WAS THE PROBLEM I WASN'T ABOUT TO SPEND $2,000 WITH THEM. I STARTED MY OWN RESEARCH TO FIND THAT THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH 1998-2000 ABS CONTROL MODULES ON VW/AUDI VEHICLES (SEE HTTP://TECH.BENTLEYPUBLISHERS.COM/THREAD.JSPA?THREADID=2447). I ALSO TALKED WITH INDEPENDENT/GERMAN MECHANICS WHO SEEMED WELL AWARE OF THE PROBLEM (EVEN THOUGH MY VW DEALERSHIP SEEMED TO FEEL IT WAS A MYSTERY). AS PARENT WHOSE CHILDREN ARE REGULARLY IN THE VEHICLE I HAVE TRIED TO DETERMINE WHAT LEVEL OF SAFETY RISK (IF ANY) THIS POSES. WHEN MY WIFE INITIALLY CALLED OUR VW DEALERSHIP THEY SAID IT WAS A CRITICAL PROBLEM AND THAT WE SHOULD BRING THE VEHICLE IN IMMEDIATELY. THEN WHEN THEY COULDN'T FIND A PROBLEM, IT SEEMED TO BE "DOWNGRADED" TO NEEDS FIXED BUT NOT CRITICAL. THE VW OWNER'S MANUAL SUGGESTS THAT IT IS CRITICAL AS THE LIGHT ON MAY RESULT IN UNEXPECTED BRAKING AND ONE OF THE INDEPENDENT MECHANICS I SPOKE WITH SUGGESTED HE PERSONALLY KNEW OF A CASE WHERE THE VEHICLE'S ABS ENGAGED AT A HIGH SPEED RESULTING IN AN ACCIDENT. I ENCOURAGE NHTSA TO ENGAGE VW IN RESOLVING THIS ISSUE..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 41000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WVWMA63BXXE. Volkswagen Passat 1999 problem was reported in REDONDO BEACH, CA. Original Owner. Vehicle was purchased on 20001206.

THE ABS MODULE ON MY 1999 VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT FAILED. THIS IS NOT AN UNCOMMON OCCURRENCE AS I'VE FOUND ON VW CHAT BOARDS, CONVERSATION WITH OTHER VW OWNERS, AND COMMENTS FROM VW REPAIR SHOPS. NOT ONLY DOES THIS VEHICLE PART HAVE A PROPENSITY TO FAIL, IT IS MORE COSTLY THAN MOST VEHICLE PARTS. THE DOLLAR FIGURE TO REPLACE THIS PART PLACES IT OUT OF REACH FOR MOST PEOPLE, RESULTING IN MANY VEHICLES OPERATING WITH A FAULTY ABS SYSTEM RATHER THAN SPEND THE MONEY TO FIX THE ITEM. WHILE MORE AFTERMARKET VEHICLE PARTS CAN BE REMANUFACTURED, THIS PARTICULAR PIECE IS NOT CURRENTLY BEING OFFERED AS A REMANUFACTURED ITEM. THIS IS MOST LIKELY BECAUSE OF; 1) THE PROPENSITY FOR THE ITEM TO FAIL AND 2) THE COST OF THE ITEM TO REPLACE. BASICALLY, MANY FEEL THAT THE MANUFACTURER AND LIKELY THE VEHICLE DEALER MAKE A GREAT DEAL OF PROFIT FROM THIS NECESSARY ITEM. DUE TO THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS SAFETY FEATURE, THAT BEING A WORKING ABS SYSTEM, I BELIEVE THAT THIS ITEM SHOULD BE REVIEWED FOR MANDATORY RECALL AND REPLACEMENT BY THE MANUFACTURER..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 97000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on Mar 11, 2005.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, AIR:ANTILOCK . I OWN A 1999 VW PASSAT WITH ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. MANY AUDI AND VW MODELS MANUFACTURED STARTING IN THE LATER '90S AND CONTINUING TO PRESENT (INCLUDING MINE), USE THE BOSCH 5.3 ABS CONTROLLER, WHICH IS PRONE TO CATASTROPHIC FAILURE, OSTENSIBLY DUE TO DEFECTIVE DESIGN. THIS MODULE CONTROLS MULTIPLE BRAKE-RELATED FUNCTIONS INCLUDING THE ABS WHICH IS IMPORTANT FOR WINTER DRIVING, BUT THE MOST CRITICAL FUNCTION OF THIS MODULE IS PROBABLY THE ELECTRONIC BRAKE FORCE DISTRIBUTION, OR EBD. THESE VEHICLES ARE DESIGNED SUCH THAT IF THE EBD IS INOPERATIVE, THE PROPORTION OF HYDRAULIC FORCE APPLIED TO THE REAR BRAKES DURING EMERGENCY BRAKING IS AS GREAT AS IT IS DURING MODERATE BRAKING EFFORT WHEN THERE IS MINIMAL TRANSFER OF VEHICLE WEIGHT TO THE FRONT WHEELS. THE EBD IS SUPPOSED TO ADJUST THE FRONT/REAR BRAKING DISTRIBUTION DYNAMICALLY ACCORDING TO THE MEASURE OF THE DECELERATION, SO THAT THE REAR WHEELS WILL NOT LOCK UP DURING EMERGENCY BRAKING. IF THIS MODULE SHOULD FAIL DURING EMERGENCY BRAKING ON DRY PAVEMENT, THE REAR WHEELS COULD LOCK UP AND CAUSE AN ACCIDENT WHICH COULD EASILY INCLUDE FATALITIES. THIS IS AN EXPENSIVE REPAIR FOR OWNERS, COSTING ROUGHLY $2000, AND MANY OWNERS HAVE PROBABLY PUT OFF THE REPAIR INDEFINITELY. THE VW COMPANY HAS PROVIDED ABSOLUTELY NO ASSISTANCE IN HELPING OWNERS DESPITE KNOWING OF HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS OF THESE TYPES OF FAILURES AS EARLY AS 30K MILES. SERVICES THAT CHARGE ~$300.00 TO REBUILD THE FAILED ABS MODULE ARE UNRELIABLE AND CAUSE DRIVERS TO WORK ON THEIR CARS WITH NO MECHANICAL SENSE BECAUSE OF THEIR DESPERATION.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT Suspension Front

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 Suspension Front Report #10124402

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on June 06, 2005.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT . I OWN A 1999 VW PASSAT WAGON. THERE HAVE BEEN SOME RECALLS ABOUT THE FRONT END. I DID HAVE IT CHECKED AT LEAST TWICE BY MY DEALER WHO SAID EVERYTHING WAS OK. AS I WAS NEARING MY HOME TODAY AT ABOUT 25 MPH THE RIGHT FRONT WHEEL SUDDENLY COLLAPSED UPWARD INTO THE WHEEL WELL AND THE CAR STARTED SKIDDING ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE FRAME OFF TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE ROAD. BECAUSE I WAS GOING RATHER SLOW I WAS ABLE TO CORRECT IT AND STOP IT BEFORE IT WENT OFF THE ROAD. IF I HAD BEEN GOING 65-70 NEXT TO OTHER CARS ON THE INTERSTATE OR EVEN 40 ON A TWO LANE AROUND TOWN I'M SURE THINGS WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN QUITE SO BENIGN AND WE (MY FAMILY AND I) MAY ALL HAVE BEEN INJURED OR WORSE! WHEN THE WRECKER LIFTED IT THE DRIVER AND I BOTH LOOKED AT THE A ARM AND THE ENDS WERE CRACKED OR SHEARED OFF. I DID NOT HIT ANYTHING BEFORE IT HAPPENED, AND DID NOT HIT ANYTHING WHILE I HAVE HAD THE CAR. EVEN IF I HAD IT WOULD SEEM THAT THE INSPECTION BY THE DEALER SHOULD HAVE FOUND IT. THIS SEEMS LIKE A MANUFACTURERER PROBLEM AND IT IS WAY TOO SERIOUS TO SAY THEY WEREN'T RESPONSIBLE. THERE COULD EASILY HAVE BEEN A DEATH CONNECTED WITH THE FRONT WHEEL COLLAPSING WHEN YOU CONSIDER LOST OF CONTROL AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS!.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 68440 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WVWNA63BXXE. Volkswagen Passat 1999 problem was reported in NIANTIC, CT. Vehicle was purchased on 20021211.

FOR: 99 VOLKSWAGON PASSAT WAGON WHILE MY WIFE AND I WERE PARKING IN FRONT OF A BANK, IN A SUDDEN THE CAR SHOKE VIOLENTLY; WE STOPPED WITHOUT TURNING THE ENGINE OFF... THE CAR WAS SHAKING VERY HARD STILL. WE THEN HAD THIS CAR DIAGNOZED AT A FIRESTONE SERVICE CENTER NEARBY. AFTER A DAY, THE MECHANIC MENTIONED THAT THERE'S MISFIRING IN CYLINDER 2, AND IT'S COMMON THING IN PASSAT (I DID NOT KNOW THIS UNTIL THEN), BUT VW NEVER ISSUED A RECALL. SO THEY ASKED ME TO LEAVE THE CAR FOR AN EXTRA DAY SO THEY COULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM. ANOTHER DAY PASSED, THEY INFORMED ME THAT THEY NEEDED MORE TIME; THEY TRIED TO REPLACE THE COIL, IT'S STILL MISFIRING, AND THEY MENTIONED MORE TRIALS, BUT THOSE WERE NOT GOOD TOO. THEY SUGGESTED ME TO BRING THE CAR TO THE DEALERSHIP. ONE HOUR BEFORE I WROTE THIS TO NHTSA, I RESEARCHED THE INTERNET AND I FOUND SIMILAR OCCURANCES OF MISFIRING FROM CYLINDERS, AND A FEW HAS THE SAME TYPE: 99 PASSAT. HERE IS WHAT I HAD FOUND: 1.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 Electrical System Report #10132012

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on July 10, 2005.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . I PURCHASED A NEW 1999 VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT FROM THE DEALER IN 10/99. APPROX 2 YEARS AGO THE INTERIOR ROOF STARTED LEAKING THROUGHOUT THE VEHICLE WHEN IT RAINED. VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO DEALER FOR REPAIR, AND I WAS TOLD THAT THE WELLS WERE CLOGGED. APPROX 1 YEAR LATER I TOOK THE VEHICLE IN FOR ROUTINE MAINTENANCE AND WAS TOLD THE WELLS WERE CLOGGING AGAIN. I REPAIRED IT AGAIN. JULY 05 THE DOOR LOCKS STARTED CYCLING WHILE I WAS DRIVING, THE INTERIOR LIGHTS WOULD COME ON WHILE DRIVING, THE TRUNK WOULD OPEN WHILE DRIVING, THE LIGHTS WOULD FLASH PERIODICALLY WHILE PARKED AND I WAS UNABLE TO USE THE REMOTE TO OPEN/LOCK THE DOORS OR ACTIVATE THE ALARM. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO THE DEALER. THE DIAGNOSIS IS THAT THE COMFORT CONTROL MODULE UNDER THE DRIVERS SEAT IS CORRODED. WATER HAS BEEN POOLING THERE WHEN IT RAINS. THE DEALER OF PURCHASE & REPAIR IS AWARE THAT THERE IS A CHRONIC PROBLEM WITH THAT VEHICLE MODEL FOR THAT YEAR AND THE NEXT FEW YEARS. THE TOTAL COST OF REPAIR FOR LABOR & PARTS IS APPROX $500.00. VOLKSWAGON'S CUSTOMER SERVICE AT THIS POINT IS NOT WILLING TO FINANCIALLY ASSIST IN REPAIR. I HAVE ALREADY SPENT $700.00 FOR THIS REPAIR AND THE PROBLEM STILL EXISTS. *JB.Mileage was 33000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WVWMA63B5XE. Volkswagen Passat 1999 problem was reported in BROOKLYN, NY. Original Owner. Vehicle was purchased on 19991015.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 Service Brakes, Hydraulic Antilock Control Unit/module Report #10132110

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on Dec 20, 2004.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:ANTILOCK:CONTROL UNIT/MODULE . I AM ONE A LARGE AND GROWING NUMBER OF PERSONS WITH VOLKSWAGEN'S AND AUDI'S WHO HAVE ABS (AUTOMATIC BRAKING SYSTEMS) THAT HAVE STOPPED WORKING AFTER THE CAR HAS BEEN DRIVEN ONLY 40,000 - 50,000 MILES. THE EXTENT OF THE PROBLEMS CAN BE DISCERNED BY A WEB DISCUSSION GROUP DEVOTED TO PEOPLE WITH THIS SOLE PROBLEM (BENTLEY PUBLISHERS AT HTTP://TECH.BENTLEYPUBLISHERS.COM/THREAD.JSPA?FORUMNAME=VOLKSWAGEN.B.B5&THREADID=6316 ). WITH THIS MANY PEOPLE HAVING FOUND THE WEBSITE, ONE CAN ONLY IMAGINE THE LARGE QUANTITY OF OTHER PEOPLE WHO HAVE THIS SNAFU. OUR EXPERIENCE HAS BEEN THAT VW/AUDI APPEARS TO REFUSE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE PROBLEM. LATELY, SEVERAL PERSONS HAVE SAID THAT THE PROBLEM IS GENERALLY BEING CAUSED BY THE ELECTRICAL UNIT IN THE ABS MODULE. YET AT THIS POINT, VW AND AUDI ARE HAVING USERS REPLACE THE ENTIRE UNIT. THIS COST IS PROHIBITIVE FOR MANY OF US ($2600 IN MY CASE). IN THE MEANTIME, MANY OF US ARE HAVING TO DRIVE WITH FAULTY ABS SYSTEMS, WITH RESULTANT SAFETY PROBLEMS: FOR ME, THE ABS PROBLEM CAUSES THE BRAKES TO GO ON AT INAPPROPRIATE TIMES. THE BRAKES ON MY CAR GRAB AND ACTIVATE UNEXPECTEDLY DURING THE FIRST SEVERAL MINUTES OF DRIVING AFTER MY CAR HAS SAT OVERNIGHT. OTHERS HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS TOO. I FEAR THAT THIS MAY CAUSE AN ACCIDENT. THIS PROBLEM ON MY CAR SEEMS TO BE GROWING WORSE. THE MORE OBVIOUS SAFETY HAZARD IS THAT ALL OF THESE CARS LACK THE ABS DURING CRUCIAL TIMES OF DRIVING ON ICY OR WET PAVEMENT. AGAIN, THIS PROBLEM IS AGGRAVATED WHEN THE ABS GOES ON AND OFF INTERMITTENTLY, WITHOUT THE DRIVER'S KNOWLEDGE (SINCE IN MANY CASES, THE DASH WARNING LIGHTS REMAIN ON THROUGHOUT). AT THIS POINT, I'M FEARFUL WHENEVER I DRIVE MY CAR. *NM.Vehicle was involved in a crash. Mileage was 48000 miles. Volkswagen Passat 1999 problem was reported in ADELPHI, MD. Original Owner. Vehicle was purchased on 19991120. Vehicle was using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES.Vehicle was using Cruise Control.Vehicle had 4 CYLINDERS. Volkswagen Passat 1999 TRANSMISSION TYPE: AUTO.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on Sept 12, 2005.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with SEATS . WHEN GETTING IN TO MY 1999 VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT THE SEAT BASE CAME LOOSE AND TIPPED ME AND THE SEAT BACK AGAINST THE BACK SEAT. THERE HAD BEEN NO PREVIOUS WARNING WITH THE SEAT SHIFTING WHILE DRIVING OR ANY CREAKING NOISES. LUCKILY I WASN'T DRIVING WHEN THIS HAPPENED BECAUSE I COULD HAVE EASILY CRASHED WITH THE SEVERE RECLINE OF THE SEAT. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO A LOCAL VW DEALERSHIP WHO LOOKED AT THE PROBLEM AND ASKED IF I'D EVER BEEN IN AN ACCIDENT BECAUSE OF THE SEAT BREAKAGE. "NO" WAS MY RESPONSE. THEIR BILL FOR A REPLACEMENT WAS FOR OVER $800 SO I CALLED VWOA AND SPOKE WITH ONE OF THEIR CUSTOMER CARE PERSONNEL ABOUT THE HIGH PRICE AND IF THEY'D HELP WITH ANY OF THE COST EVEN THOUGH THE CAR WAS OUT OF WARRANTY. THEIR RESPONSE WAS "NO". THE CAR WAS REPAIRED OUT OF MY OWN POCKET AND A NEWER MODEL SEAT BASE WAS INSTALLED THAT WAS OF AN OBVIOUS REDESIGN. (I GUESS THEY THOUGHT THE OLD ONE WAS INFERIOR BUT DIDN'T FEEL LIKE IT WAS A SAFETY ISSUE TO LET ANYONE KNOW ABOUT.) *NM.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 59752 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on Oct 30, 2005.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:ANTILOCK:CONTROL UNIT/MODULE . THE VEHICLE IS A 1999 VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT. ABS AND BRAKE WARNING LIGHTS COME ON PERIODICALLY WITH INCREASING FREQUENCY AND NO APPARENT CAUSE. THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH PASSATS AND AUDI A4S. I FOUND AROUND 40 SIMILAR COMPLAINTS ON THE NHTSA WEB SITE AND THE FREQUENCY OF THE PROBLEM IS WELL DOCUMENTED ELSEWHERE ON THE INTERNET. THE PROBLEM IS REPORTED TO RESULT IN LACK OF ABS AND INACTIVATION OF THE NORMAL BRAKING DISTRIBUTION MECHANISM. THE LACK OF ABS, WHILE SERIOUS, ONLY REDUCES BRAKING TO THAT OF MANY OTHER VEHICLES. THE ALLEGED EFFECT ON DISTRIBUTION OF BRAKING POWER IS A POTENTIALLY MORE SERIOUS PROBLEM, AS IT COULD RESULT IN POOR PERFORMANCE OF EVEN THE CONVENTIONAL BRAKING SYSTEM. *JB.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 55000 miles.

I HAVE BEEN IN TOUCH WITH MANY OTHER VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT OWNERS WHO HAVE ALSO HAD THEIR ABS CONTROL MODULE GO BAD AND HAVE HAD TO REPLACE IT. SINCE THIS SEEMS LIKE A VERY COMMON PROBLEM I FEEL THAT VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA SHOULD ISSUE A RECALL ON THIS PART AND FINANCIALLY REIMBURSE THOSE OF US WHO HAVE ALREADY PAID OUT OF POCKET TO REPLACE THE ABS. IT IS A VERY COSTLY EXPENSE AND WAS SURPRISING TO ME THAT IT NEEDED REPLACEMENT AT ONLY 75,000 MILES, IN MY CAR'S CASE. THANK YOU. *JB.Volkswagen Passat 1999 problem was reported in LOS ANGELES, CA.

I OWN A 1999 VW PASSAT V6. IT CURRENTLY HAS APPROX 67,975 MILES. FROM THE FIRST YEAR OF PURCHASE TO THIS CURRENT DATE, I'VE EXPERIENCED THE SUNROOF OPENING ON IT'S OWN DURING WINTER MONTHS. THIS SUNROOF HAS A MANUAL DIAL CONTROL, AND THEREFORE IT MYSTIFIES ME THAT THIS CAN OCCUR. MY RATE OF SPEED HAS NO IMPACT ON THE OCCURANCE, SINCE I COULD BE MERELY TRAVELLING AT 45 50 MPH WHEN IT HAPPENS. I'VE REPORTED THIS ISSUE TO THE DEALER,BUT OF COURSE IF THE PROBLEM IS NOT REPLICATED WHEN THEY TEST DRIVE THE CAR, IT IS CONSIDERED NON-EXISTENT (IN THEIR OPINION). I AM TIRED OF THE MULTIPLE PREMATURE COMPLAINTS ON THIS VEHICLE AND AT THIS POINT, I'M CONSIDERING ANOTHER VEHICLE. THIS IS WHAT MY TIME LINE LOOKS LIKE: 48,824 MILES REPLACED ALL UPPER LINKS REPLACE V BELT 49,576 MILES REPLACED WATER PUMP AND BATTERY 53,629 MILES REPLACED CV BOOT JOINTS AND BOTH FRONT AXELS 57,512 MILES REPLACED UPPER LINKS AGAIN 61,972 MILES, BEING TOLD THAT ALL GASKET SEALS HAVE TO BE REPLACED.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 Power Train Automatic Transmission Control Module (tcm, Pcm) Report #10145951

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on Dec 16, 2005.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION:CONTROL MODULE (TCM, PCM) . PURCHASED A 99 VW PASSAT WAGON FROM A VIRGINIA DEALER IN NOV 2004 MILEAGE 47.5K . THE TRANSMISSION CONTROL UNIT/MODULE HAS NOW COMPLETELY FAILED. THIS EXPENSIVE ($1300) CIRCUIT BOARD IS LOCATED UNDER THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT. IT IS IN A NON-DRAINING WELL IN THE FLOOR PAN UNDER THE CARPETING AND PADDING. IT IS IN NO WAY SEALED OR WATERPROOFED TO PREVENT CORROSION FROM CONDENSATION OR FAILURE FROM WATER BUILDUP IN THE AREA. NORMAL USE IN INCLEMENT WEATHER ALLOWS DROPS OF WATER TO ACCUMULATE IN THIS AREA . ONCE THE WATER GETS TO THE AREA WHERE THE TCU IS LOCATED IT REMAINS THERE. WHATEVER EVAPORATION THAT DOES OCCUR JUST INCREASES THE HUMIDITY AROUND THE TCU, IT THEN CONDENSES ON THE COLD METAL FLOOR PAN OR THE TCU AND DRAINS BACK INTO THE WELL THE TCU IS IN. SINCE IT IS UNDER THE CARPET AND THE PADDING ONE CANNOT SEE OR EASILY DETECT THAT WATER OR EVEN JUST A DAMPNESS EXISTS HERE. THE TCU CORRODES UNTIL IT FAILS, WHEN IT FAILS THE VEHICLE IS UNDRIVEABLE AND MUST THEN BE TOWED TO A VW DEALER. THERE IS NO DIAGNOSTIC DATA AVAILABLE THAT WOULD ALLOW A REGULAR GARAGE TO REPAIR IT. EVEN GC VOLKSWAGEN REQUESTED 3 HRS OF DIAGNOSTIC TIME. THEIR FINAL CHARGE WAS 3.5 HRS TO IDENTIFY THE PROBLEM AND REPLACE THE TCU. A 12 MONTH/12000 MILE WARRANTY WAS GIVEN EXCEPT FOR FAILURE DUE TO OUTSIDE INFLUENCE. AS I UNDERSTAND IT THIS MEANS ANY USE OF THE VEHICLE OUTSIDE OF A TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY CONTROLLED ENCLOSURE. I WAS ASSURED THAT IT WILL FAIL AGAIN AND THERE WAS NOTHING I COULD DO TO PREVENT IT. BY THE TIME ONE DISCOVERS WATER IN THE AREA THE DAMAGE IS ALREADY DONE. VW WILL NOT REIMBURSE ME FOR THE REPAIRS OR ISSUE A SOLUTION TO PREVENT FURTHER DAMAGE TO THE TCU. THIS IS A DESIGN FLAW AND SHOULD BE RECALLED AS IT EFFECTS EVERY 1.8T W/ TIPTRONIC AUTO TRANSMISSION. VW IS ENDANGERING PEOPLES LIVES AND COSTING PEOPLE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS DUE TO THE POOR PLACEMENT OF THIS COMPONENT. OUTSIDE INFLUENCE IS A SCAM TO DENY PAYMENT.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 Service Brakes, Hydraulic Antilock Control Unit/module Report #10148281

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on Oct 01, 2005.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:ANTILOCK:CONTROL UNIT/MODULE . MANY AUDI AND VW MODELS MANUFACTURED STARTING IN THE LATER '90S AND CONTINUING TO PRESENT, USE THE BOSCH 5.3 ABS CONTROLLER, WHICH IS PRONE TO CATASTROPHIC FAILURE, OSTENSIBLY DUE TO DEFECTIVE DESIGN. THIS MODULE CONTROLS MULTIPLE BRAKE-RELATED FUNCTIONS INCLUDING THE ABS WHICH IS IMPORTANT FOR WINTER DRIVING, BUT THE MOST CRITICAL FUNCTION OF THIS MODULE IS PROBABLY THE ELECTRONIC BRAKE FORCE DISTRIBUTION, OR EBD. THESE VEHICLES ARE DESIGNED SUCH THAT IF THE EBD IS INOPERATIVE, THE PROPORTION OF HYDRAULIC FORCE APPLIED TO THE REAR BRAKES DURING EMERGENCY BRAKING IS AS GREAT AS IT IS DURING MODERATE BRAKING EFFORT WHEN THERE IS MINIMAL TRANSFER OF VEHICLE WEIGHT TO THE FRONT WHEELS. THE EBD IS SUPPOSED TO ADJUST THE FRONT/REAR BRAKING DISTRIBUTION DYNAMICALLY ACCORDING TO THE MEASURE OF THE DECELERATION, SO THAT THE REAR WHEELS WILL NOT LOCK UP DURING EMERGENCY BRAKING. IF THIS MODULE SHOULD FAIL DURING EMERGENCY BRAKING ON DRY PAVEMENT, THE REAR WHEELS COULD LOCK UP AND CAUSE AN ACCIDENT WHICH COULD EASILY INCLUDE FATALITIES. THIS IS AN EXPENSIVE REPAIR FOR OWNERS, COSTING ROUGHLY $2000, AND MANY OWNERS HAVE PROBABLY PUT OFF THE REPAIR INDEFINITELY. EVIDENCE WHICH CAN BE FOUND THROUGH A SIMPLE WEB SEARCH, SUGGESTS THAT THE PROBLEM IS WIDESPREAD, AND THAT IF IT HAS NOT ALREADY LED TO SERIOUS ACCIDENTS, IT IS ONLY A QUESTION OF TIME. THIS PROBLEM IS GENUINE, AND VW/AUDI SHOULD BE COMPELLED TO TAKE IMMEDIATE CORRECTIVE ACTION. *JB.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WVWNA63B1XE.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 Service Brakes, Air Antilock Control Unit/module Report #10148502

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on Jan 24, 2006.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, AIR:ANTILOCK:CONTROL UNIT/MODULE . IN MY 1999 VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT THERE IS A CONTROL MODULE KNOWN AS THE ABS CONTROL MODULE. I BELONG TO A NATIONWIDE PASSAT GROUP KNOWN AS WWW.PASSATWORLD.COM/FORUMS AND THIS IS A MAJOR ISSUE. IT SEEMS IN EARLY MODEL PASSATS (1998-2001) THE ABS CONTROL MODULE GETS EXTREMELY HOT OVER TIME SINCE IT IS PLACED DIRECTLY NEXT TO THE ENGINE BLOCK. THIS CAUSES THE UNIT TO MALFUNCTION. WHEN THIS UNIT MALFUNCTIONS IT CAUSES THE ABS BREAKING SYSTEM TO FAIL. ALSO, IT FLASHES MULTIPLE CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS ON THE DASHBOARD THAT ARE EXTREMELY DISTRACTING. VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA DOES NOT HAVE THIS UNDER WARRANTY, OR RECALL. DEALERSHIPS ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE CHARGING 1,200$ TO REPLACE THIS UNIT THAT TAKES 20 MINUTES TO CHANGE OUT. THE HARD PART IS TRYING TO RE-BUILD THE MODULE. I BELIEVE THIS IS A HUGE SAFETY FACTOR THAT SHOULD BE ADDRESSED. ON OUR WEBSITE WE HAVE A LIST OF PEOPLE WHO'S ABS CONTROL MODULE HAS FAILED, ALONG WITH THE DATE AND MILEAGE ON THEIR VEHICLE WHEN IT HAPPENED. IF YOU WOULD LIKE THIS INFORMATION PLEASE CONTACT ME.*AK .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 60000 miles. Volkswagen Passat 1999 problem was reported in HOLLY HILL, FL.

JUST BEFORE THE EXPIRATION OF MY 100,000-MILE, 6-YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY AT 99,938 MILES (AND 23 DAYS BEFORE THE END OF 6 YEARS) I TOOK MY 1999 1.8L TURBO VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT (B5) TO THE DEALERSHIP. I REQUESTED THAT THEY PERFORM THE 100,000-MILE SERVICE AND TO THOROUGHLY CHECK THE CAR FOR ANY REPAIRS THAT MAY BE REQUIRED SINCE IT WOULD SOON BE OUT-OF-WARRANTY. FOUR HOURS LATER WHEN THE SHOP WAS CLOSING, I PICKED UP MY CAR. UPON CHECKOUT, THE SERVICE REP STATED THAT THEY DID NOT FIND ANY PROBLEMS, BUT THAT THE SERVICE TECHNICIAN AND VOLKSWAGEN RECOMMEND CHANGING THE TIMING BELT, TENSIONER, AND WATER PUMP AT 105,000 MILES. I THANKED HIM AND WENT HOME NOT REALIZING THE IMPORTANCE OF HIS COMMENT. THREE WEEKS LATER ON JUNE 2, 2006 AT 102,088 MILES (AND 3 DAYS PAST THE SIX-YEAR POINT), MY TENSIONER BROKE WHICH CAUSED MY TIMING BELT TO SLIP AND STRIP THE TEETH INTERMITTENTLY OFF THE BELT. SINCE I WAS NOT AWARE THAT MY TIMING BELT WAS SLIPPING (EXCEPT FOR AN INCREASE IN NOISE WHEN I ACCELERATED), THE VALVES WERE BENT DURING THE EVENT. I HAD MY CAR TOWED THE FOLLOWING MORNING TO A LOCAL VW SERVICE SHOP, AND THEY NOTIFIED ME THAT MY TIMING BELT WAS BROKEN AND THAT MACHINING OF THE CYLINDER BLOCK WAS NECESSARY SINCE THE VALVES WERE BENT. THE REPAIR TO MY ENGINE, INCLUDING A WATER PUMP AND FAULTY PLASTIC HOSE, COST $2,342. IN ADDITION, I HAD TO RENT A CAR FOR ONE WEEK FOR THE DURATION OF THE REPAIR ($225) AND TOW THE CAR TO THE SERVICE SHOP ($28). UPON RESEARCHING THIS ISSUE, I REALIZED IT IS A VERY COMMON OCCURRENCE FOR THE TIMING BELT TO FAIL PREMATURELY ON B5 PASSATS AND THAT HAD EITHER THE DEALERSHIP OR VW NOTIFIED ME OF THIS PROCLIVITY FOR FAILURE (AND CHANGE THEIR SERVICING RECOMMENDATION) THIS FAILURE AND ASSOCIATED $2600 EXPENSE WOULD NOT HAVE OCCURRED. *JB.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 102088 miles.

BOTH TIMES THE WARNING LIGHTS WENT OFF WITHIN SECONDS. UPON RESEARCHING THIS PROBLEM ON THE INTERNET, IT APPEARS THAT THIS IS RELATED TO A FAILED ABS CONTROL MODULE, APPARENTLY A KNOWN PROBLEM THAT SHOULD HAVE A RECALL ASSOCIATED WITH IT SINCE IT FAILS PREMATURELY. ACCORDING TO THE DEALERSHIP, IT WILL COST BETWEEN $1800 AND $2400 FOR THEM TO REPAIR THE ABS CONTROL MODULE. THIS IS THE SECOND LARGE ITEM FAILURE WITHIN FIVE WEEKS AND 3000 MILES OF MY WARRANTY EXPIRATION (THE FIRST WAS A FAILED TIMING BELT AND TENSIONER).

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 Suspension Front Control Arm Lower Arm Report #10163261

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on July 21, 2006.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM:LOWER ARM . THE FAILURE OF LOWER CONTROL ARM HAPPENED WITHOUT ANY WARNING, DURING NORMAL DRIVING ON THE CITY ROAD WHEN MAKING A RIGHT TURN (APPROXIMATELY AT 5 MPH SPEED). RIGHT FRONT SUSPENSION LOWER CONTROL ARM SHEARED IN TWO PIECES, LEAVING A FRONT PASSENGER WHEEL COMPLETELY SEPARATED. IF THIS SHOULD HAPPENED ON ANY HIGHER HIGHER SPEED, CONSEQUENCES WOULD BE DEADLY. I RESEARCHED THIS SAFETY HAZARD AND FOUND THAT VW ISSUED A SERVICE ACTION FOR THE LOWER CONTROL ARM ON 1999 PASSAT. HOWEVER, VW SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE INFORMED ME THAT THE SERVICE ACTION DOES NOT COVER MY VEHICLE. VW'S EXPLANATION WAS THAT IT ONLY COVERS PARTS FROM CERTAIN SUPPLIER (ACCORDING TO REPRESENTATIVE, VW USED TWO DIFFERENT SUPPLIERS FOR THE LOWER CONTROL ARM). I BELIEVE THAT LOWER CONTROL ARM WAS A DEFECTIVE PART, AS THIS TYPE OF FAILURE COULD NOT BE A RESULT OF NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR. IT IS A SAFETY HAZARD. I HAVE TO REPLACE LOWER CONTROL ARM, DRIVE SHAFT AND WHEEL LINER (AND, POSSIBLY SOME OTHER PARTS WHICH WERE DAMAGED AS A RESULT OF THE CONTROL ARM FAILURE) AT MY EXPENSE. I BELIEVE, VW SHOULD COVER AT LEAST SOME OF THE EXPENSE, AS IT HAPPENED AS A RESULT OF A FACTORY DEFECT. *NM .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 110000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on July 20, 2006.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:ANTILOCK:CONTROL UNIT/MODULE . IN AUGUST OF THIS YEAR, 2006, MY 1999 VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT GLS, WHICH WAS PURCHASED NEW BY MY FAMILY, BEGIN EXHIBITING SOME TROUBLING BEHAVIOR. THE BEHAVIOR CONSISTS OF THE TACHOMETER CEASING TO FUNCTION AS BOTH THE "BRAKE" AND "OIL" DASHBOARD LIGHTS FLASH WITH ACCOMPANYING WARNING TONES AND THE "ABS" DASHBOARD LIGHT COMES ON SOLID AND REMAINS ON. WHEN THE "ABS" DASHBOARD LIGHT IS ON, MY CAR'S ABS DOES NOT FUNCTION. AT FIRST THE PROBLEM WAS INTERMITTENT, BUT EVENTUALLY BECAME MORE FREQUENT AND HAS NOW REACH A STATE OF PERSISTENCY. I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON VOLKSWAGENS VEHICLES SINCE I WAS A CHILD AND, GIVEN MY IMMEDIATELY FAMILY HAS OWNED OVER TEN VOLKSWAGENS IN THE PAST 20 YEARS ALONE, THE REST OF MY FAMILY HAS AS WELL; INCLUDING A SECONDARY RELATIVE WHO OWNS A VOLKSWAGEN REPAIR BUSINESS IN AMESBURY, MA. GIVEN THE ABOVE DESCRIBED PROBLEM IS COMMON AND WELL DOCUMENTED, THE DIAGNOSIS OF A FAULTY BOSCH 5.3 ABS CONTROLLER WAS STRAIGHT FORWARD. THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION (NHTSA) HAS LOGGED OVER 50 COMPLAINTS ALONE WITH MANY HUNDREDS MORE BEING AFFECTED. ALL INSTANCES ARE CONSISTENT WITH MY OWN. REVIEW OF THE INDIVIDUAL TESTIMONIES AS LOGGED BY THE NHTSA MAKES IT CLEAR THAT THIS PROBLEM IS CAUSED BY THE PREMATURE FAILURE OF A KEY COMPONENT OF ONE OF THE MOST CRUCIAL AUTOMOTIVE SAFETY SYSTEMS. THE PROHIBITIVE COST OF REPAIRING THIS ITEM AND THE REFUSAL TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE PROBLEM COMPONENT AS DEFECTIVE AND ELECTIVELY RECALLING IT AMOUNTS TO NEGLIGENCE AND RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT ON THE PART OF VOLKSWAGEN. THE DEFECTIVE COMPONENT REPRESENTS A DANGER TO THE DRIVER OF THE AFFECTED AUTOMOBILE AND EVERYONE SHARING THE ROAD WITH THE AFFECTED AUTOMOBILE. THE PROBLEM EXPRESSED HEREIN IS WIDESPREAD AND CLEARLY DOCUMENTED AS A PROBLEM AND A HAZARD THAT IS NOT TYPICALLY EXPERIENCED BY OTHER AUTOMOBILE OWNERS WITH SIMILARLY FUNCTIONING ANTILOCK BRAKING SYSTEMS. THIS UNIT SHOULD BE RECALLED TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS OF DRIVERS. *NM.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 80000 miles.

LATELY, SEVERAL PERSONS HAVE SAID THAT THE PROBLEM IS GENERALLY BEING CAUSED BY THE ELECTRICAL UNIT IN THE ABS MODULE. YET AT THIS POINT, VW AND AUDI ARE HAVING USERS REPLACE THE ENTIRE UNIT. THIS COST IS PROHIBITIVE FOR MANY OF US ($2000 UPWARD IN MY CASE). IN THE MEANTIME, MANY OF US ARE HAVING TO DRIVE WITH FAULTY ABS SYSTEMS, WITH RESULTANT SAFETY PROBLEMS: FOR ME, THE ABS PROBLEM CAUSES THE BRAKES TO GO ON AT INAPPROPRIATE TIMES. THE BRAKES ON MY CAR GRAB AND ACTIVATE UNEXPECTEDLY DURING THE FIRST SEVERAL MINUTES OF DRIVING AFTER MY CAR HAS SAT OVERNIGHT. OTHERS HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS TOO. I FEAR THAT THIS MAY CAUSE AN ACCIDENT. THIS PROBLEM ON MY CAR SEEMS TO BE GROWING WORSE. THE MORE OBVIOUS SAFETY HAZARD IS THAT ALL OF THESE CARS LACK THE ABS DURING CRUCIAL TIMES OF DRIVING ON ICY OR WET PAVEMENT. AGAIN, THIS PROBLEM IS AGGRAVATED WHEN THE ABS GOES ON AND OFF INTERMITTENTLY, WITHOUT THE DRIVER'S KNOWLEDGE (SINCE IN MANY CASES, THE DASH WARNING LIGHTS REMAIN ON THROUGHOUT). AT THIS POINT, I'M FEARFUL WHENEVER I DRIVE MY CAR. *JB.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 80000 miles. Volkswagen Passat 1999 problem was reported in GOLDSBORO, NC.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 Suspension Front Control Arm Report #10178051

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999 car safety problem was reported on Jan 03, 2007.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1999, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM . FRONT UPPER CONTROL ARMS AND OUTER TIE RODS HAD TO BE REPLACED FOR THE SECOND TIME. FIRST TIME AT 55,552 MILES AND SECOND TIME AT 75,959 MILES. THAT'S ONLY 20,407 MILES DIFFERENCE FOR THE $1200.00 REPAIR TO BE DONE AGAIN. ABSURD. CALLED THE VW CUSTOMER CARE AND THEY REFUSE TO REIMBURSE IN ANY WAY STATING THE 2 YEAR WARRANTY EXPIRED. THIS DEFECT WOULD NEVER FALL WITHIN THE WARRANTY PERIOD SO THEY HAVE NO EXCUSE. I ALREADY ABSORBED THE COST FOR THE 1ST REPAIR SO IN ALL FAIRNESS THEY SHOULD COVER THE 2ND TIME. THIS IS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM WITH VW'S. I'M NOT GOING TO PAY $1200 EVERY 20,000 TO HAVE MY CAR REPAIRED. I WILL GO LEGAL AND FORWARD THIS COMPLAINT TO CONSUMER REPORTS, THE BBB, AND THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. *JB.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 75959 miles.
