Volkswagen Passat 2006 Vehicle Speed Control Review #10161000

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006 car safety problem was reported on Mar 01, 2006.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . there is an unsafe prolonged hesitation when depressing the accelerator pedal on the 2006 volkswagen passat 3.6 liter 4 motion. when depressing the accelerator pedal, nothing happens until you've depressed the pedal approx. 3/4 to an inch of pedal travel, then all of a sudden, the car lurches and accelerates at what feels like half to full throttle. it is a random hesitation, yet occurs at probably 30% of the time. it is most noticeable when starting from a stop, yet will happen on the highway, if accelerating to pass. this is a very dangerous malfunction. if this abrupt acceleration occurs in snowy or icy conditions, it could cause a loss of control. i have experienced several times, when i expected my car to move forward when i depressed the gas pedal, only to have it hesitate and nearly cause an accident. this car has a drive by wire accelerator, which i believe is a fairly recent design change. we have another car with the same type of system which does not do this. i have read 2 new car reviews that have mentioned this problem with this particular model. after taking delivery, i called to tell the service department of this problem. after trying to convince me that this was "normal", they took my car in to try to resolve the problem. it was there for 10 days, during which time 2 engineers came out from volkswagen to look at the car. they agreed that there was something amiss, and felt that they needed a software update installed. there was not one available, and i was told on march 30th that it would be ready within 30 days. it has now been 3 months since then, and multiple phone calls later, a fix is still not ready. i have been told that it is ready, but waiting government approval, and then told that nothing is ready. no one at volkswagen customer service has been able to give me an estimated time when my car can be repaired. there is really no "incident" to report, other than an unsafe malfunction which needs to be corrected. *nm .Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WVWBU73CX6P.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006 car safety problem was reported on Mar 01, 2006.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . there is an unsafe prolonged hesitation when depressing the accelerator pedal on the 2006 volkswagen passat 3.6 liter 4 motion. when depressing the accelerator pedal, nothing happens until you've depressed the pedal approx. 3/4 to an inch of pedal travel, then all of a sudden, the car lurches and accelerates at what feels like half to full throttle. it is a random hesitation, yet occurs at probably 30% of the time. it is most noticeable when starting from a stop, yet will happen on the highway, if accelerating to pass. this is a very dangerous malfunction. if this abrupt acceleration occurs in snowy or icy conditions, it could cause a loss of control. i have experienced several times, when i expected my car to move forward when i depressed the gas pedal, only to have it hesitate and nearly cause an accident. this car has a drive by wire accelerator, which i believe is a fairly recent design change. we have another car with the same type of system which does not do this. i have read 2 new car reviews that have mentioned this problem with this particular model. after taking delivery, i called to tell the service department of this problem. after trying to convince me that this was "normal", they took my car in to try to resolve the problem. it was there for 10 days, during which time 2 engineers came out from volkswagen to look at the car. they agreed that there was something amiss, and felt that they needed a software update installed. there was not one available, and i was told on march 30th that it would be ready within 30 days. it has now been 3 months since then, and multiple phone calls later, a fix is still not ready. i have been told that it is ready, but waiting government approval, and then told that nothing is ready. no one at volkswagen customer service has been able to give me an estimated time when my car can be repaired. there is really no "incident" to report, other than an unsafe malfunction which needs to be corrected. *nm .Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WVWBU73CX6P.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006 car safety problem was reported on May 28, 2006.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE . events leading up to the failure ;the problem that i am about to describe has on a consistent basis occurred since i purchased the vehicle. failure and its consequences ; there are three problems. the 1st problem being that when the vehicle is running/on and i am either in park, at a stop light or similar, the engine "sputters" as if it has lower grade/bad gas or is misfiring or has an air leak of some sort. problem 2, when i am at a complete stop/parked and the vehicle is in drive, when i let off the brake to "creep" forward (like in traffic) the car shakes/throbs/inches forward as if the brakes are clamping down on the discs and letting go really quick. it is not a problem with the brakes because if i let the car "creep" in idle up a hill without using the brakes the car still shakes/throbs. the 3rd problem is that the throttle response is delayed anywhere from 1 full second to 3 full seconds. it's simple, when i press on the gas pedal, the car does not move/the engine does not rev anywhere from 1 to 3 full seconds. at highway cruising speeds, it does the same thing. in both instances whether it be at a stop light of cruising at highway speeds, this problem has nearly gotten me killed or seriously hurt. what was done to correct the failure = i took the vehicle in to have the dealership service department see what was causing these problems so they could fix it and they didn't come up with anything. *jb .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 0 miles.

Volkswagen Passat 2006 Suspension Front Review #10176956

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006 car safety problem was reported on Oct 06, 2006.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT . when driving my new 06 passat 2.0t at 35 mph+, w/ passengers (avg. weights - approx 140 ea.) the car bottoms out, rubbing the road surface, over even moderate bumps & 'swooping' humps in the road. it occurs w/ more severity when encountering bumps during cornering. it started without warning, and was 'moderate' at first, then began to get worse as time went on. i can also hear a 'clicking' sound when the driver window is down, & going over even small, slow speed bumps (<5mph) after several of incidences i took it the local vw dealer in vancouver, wa,. after 3+ visits, no solution. they told me it was fine, they couldn't reproduce either the clicking or bottoming out. i contacted vw usa & filed a complaint with that dick hannah dealership. i was quickly contacted by the service manager who offered to take a ride w/ me, during which we easily reproduced both concerns, at slow speeds, within minutes of leaving there lot - she was shocked, & said she'd look into it - which she did. the solution? "the factory installed front mud flaps were 'too long' & draggied when encountering bumps" ! needless to say, & even w/o being a 'mechanic', this answer was obviously not the reason for a suspension that 'clicks' loudly over bumps & bottoms out during normal driving. i accepted this answer w/ the idea i'd do some additional research. the car continues to bottom out, is getting worse & ironically only happens on the drivers side - regardless of whether i am driving (at 180lbs) or my fiance' is driving (at 115lbs) now even w/o passengers! there's definitely an issue w/ at least the front strut unit - which would also explain the clicking coming from that unit. although i have brought it back to the service manager, they stand by there diagnosis - that nothing is wrong with the car. i'm very disappointed in both there service and level of expertise/knowledge - every suspension mechanic i have spoken with says that it sounds like a faulty or leaking strut unit - an easy fix. *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 500 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006 car safety problem was reported on Aug 14, 2007.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . i own a 2006 vw passat 2.0t. two days ago, as my wife was parking with the baby in the back seat, the brakes suddenly failed completely and she smacked into the car in front of her and it into the car in front of it. luckily no one was in those cars and my wife and baby are okay. she then filed a police report and had the roadside assistance pick it up and take it to the service center. now i know about the late 2006 recall and we had that fixed but geez, it's a good thing she wasn't on the highway! as of yesterday, vw mechanics could not duplicate the problem and could not find a mechanical or computer error. the service representative said that they road tested it and it was fine. however, my car model was recalled by vw in 12/06 and supposedly fixed a power brake issue. of course yesterday they told me that it was also recalled just yesterday for a software update. means nothing i guess...and they've road tested it again. by the way, had my wife floored the gas, with the 2.0t engine, it would have been far worse. witnesses saw her screaming and looking down before the accident, trying to figure out what was happening. vw consumer affairs, is also investigating the issue and the dealers service levels. now today, something surprising happened. my lojack early warning system called an emailed me because as it turns out they were road testing it. funny, they said they road tested it yesterday as well but i had no early warning from lojack. sounds like i caught the service center in a lie. *jb.Vehicle was involved in a crash. 0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 13100 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006 car safety problem was reported on Nov 30, 2005.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . 2006 volkswagen passat 2.0t shortly after acquiring the vehicle i experienced that at times the vehicle would severely decelerate shortly after proceeding from a stop, followed by a rapid acceleration. thankfully drivers behind me avoided rear end collisions. on one occasion a broad side collision was narrowly averted. subsequent trips to the dealership could not duplicate the condition . no diagnostic fault codes were registered and service personnel mentioned the possibility of "turbo lag". after driving the vehicle for a few months i inadvertently duplicated the condition while creeping through a car wash with my left foot lightly on the brake while i accelerated with the right foot. i found that i could easily replicate the condition if i touched the brake pedal with my left foot as i began to accelerate with my right foot. i demonstrated this to a dealership tech as he accompanied me with an analyzer connected . no fault codes registered when the vehicle would "die and then accelerate". the tech had subsequent dialog with a regional vw rep with the end result being ----- "don't left foot brake" apparently this is a vw computer control module issue inherent to this model vw. i believe it to be a serious and potentially hazardous condition. *tr .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 200 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006 car safety problem was reported on Oct 10, 2007.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with STEERING . 1st occurrence, steering column lock warning came on upon ignition, immediately disabled the car. tried again several times before it eventually started. same problem occurred several times a week with increasing frequency until it eventually happened in rush hour traffic, while the car was running and in motion. the problem currently happens every time the car is started. we first reported the problem to dealer "a" in october of 2007, however, because they could not replicate our complaint, they treated it as an isolated event. we continued to report the problem at every service visit to dealer "a", without resolution. upon taking the car to dealer "b", they reported that the steering column module and comfort module are both defective, causing the steering column lock. dealer "b" also stated that they see 2-3 cars a week for the steering column lock defect and that the repair would cost $1500, despite that we first reported the problem while under warranty. upon further investigation, a temporary method to circumvent the problem before the car is started was discovered on a forum full of hundreds of reports from other passat owners with the same defect. (http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=3656214&page=1) additionally, vw ireland has developed a simple software fix for the problem that was covered in a major irish national news publication, however vw america denies such a fix exists and refuses to cooperate with vw ireland or local dealers or issue a recall. this is clearly an issue wherein an inexpensive software fix would cause vw to either lose out on a $1500 mechanical repair and have to reimburse those who have already paid for the fix. consequently, they refuse to acknowledge the prevalence of the defect which would result in a recall. *tr.Volkswagen Passat 2006 problem was reported in CHARLOTTE, NC.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006 car safety problem was reported on May 05, 2010.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with STEERING . steering wheel column lock error on computer of 2006 vw passat. car stalls anytime this light warning comes on. it has come on while driving causing it to stall at high speeds making it hard to steer to the right shoulder safely. this issue has caused two incidents while in highway traffic and was a near miss accident each time. it occurs on a daily basis now and was intermittent at first. i was told that the fix is to replace the entire steering column which is about $2k. to get the car started again, you have to move the steering column back and forth and after about 4-10 attempts to start, the car will start. there is no warning, it just stalls when this issue arises. it has stalled at a rail road crossing which has a stopping point before you cross. very unsafe situation, i work for the united states air force as a safety investigator and if this existed in our air force we would have an immediate recall. this matter needs to be pushed forward and investigated. after researching this issue i have noticed multiple forums stating the same issues and same complaints. *tr.Mileage was 68856 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006 car safety problem was reported on June 17, 2010.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with STEERING . 2006 vw passat experiencing "steering wheel column lock" failure. the light comes on and the car will not start. sometimes the car will simply turn off when driving down the road. my online research found that this is a common problem with 2006, 2007, 2008 models. this is also a safety issue because the car will sometimes continue running after the key is pulled out of the ignition. dealership service departments all over the country are replacing the steering column and control module for $1500 and this normally happens outside of factory warranty so we the consumers are stuck with the bill. please look into this as this should be a safety recall! and not the financial responsibility of the owners. *tr.Mileage was 57000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006 car safety problem was reported on Apr 09, 2009.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with STEERING . in april 2009, while driving, the "steering column lock defect" message appeared. as directed, took it immediately to dealership. after service, they indicated no problem could be found. after this, i would have this same error message appear when trying to start the car. many times, it would take 5-10 minutes of trying before the vehicle would start. had it in for other service over the past year & each time relayed the problem. they never could diagnose it & said it was probably just an issue with the computer. in april of 2010, the problem started occurring more & more frequently. in late may 2010, could not get the vehicle to start after same steering column lock message. then could not remove the key. finally got the key out; however, the dash and internal lights stayed on and ran down the battery. was able to get a charge to the battery but then the anti-theft system immobilizer engaged rendering the vehicle unusable. after a year of repeatedly taking the car to the dealership, it is now back there but it had to be towed. doing research i have found that this seems to be a very common occurrence with this make and model of car; however, no recalls, etc. have been issued and obviously the local dealership was unable to diagnose/fix the problem before it came to the point of the car being totally unusable. *tr.Mileage was 85000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006 car safety problem was reported on Sept 15, 2010.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with STEERING . i have a 2006 volkswagen passat 2.0t with 65,000 miles on it. for the past several days i've been receiving several error messages from the hud / heads-up display: "defective steering column lock" and "immobilizer active". this is always accompanied by the car firing for a few seconds and then stalling out. attempting to start the car again immediately only results in a strange and loud on/off "clicking" type sound (as if it's trying to unlock the steering wheel and failing to do so). waiting 2-3 minutes and trying again usually seems to do the trick, but today the car wouldn't start at all. had to have it towed to the dealer and have the entire steering column replaced-- nearly $2000 in repairs. of course, curiosity got the best of me, and i decided to research into this a bit more. turns out there are literally hundreds of thousands of posts online of vw customers having the exact same problem with the exact same year and model. it's sort of insulting, especially learning that vw initiated a recall in ireland for the same issue, just not in the united states. this has class-action law suit written all over it. obviously i was not harmed by this defect, but i can see how it *could* harm somebody, and read of several other victims who have had this happen in the middle of rush hour traffic. it's only a matter of time. it's just sad that it takes something as awful as personal injury, death or property damage before somebody steps up and takes action. this is not right... *tr.Mileage was 65000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006 car safety problem was reported on Apr 05, 2010.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with STEERING . vw, 2006 passat, now has a "steering column defect" warning, and the car doesn't start. the car has 60,000 miles on it, and this started just after the 50,000 mile warranty expired. the car also stalls at high speed when this light comes on without warning, and can cause a serious accident. the car also has a problem with downshifting when on the highway, and slams into low gear as though the car hit something. the dealer cannot find the problem when the car is put on the diagnostic computer. i have read many other complaints on the internet about these same issues with the 2006 passat, and found that the fix for the steering column alone costs between $1400 and $2000. because this appears to be a factory defect, and it is a safety issue, i wanted to report it as such. although there hasn't been an accident caused in my case, the potential for disaster is huge. i'm afraid to drive the car, because this is a recurring problem, and can happen at any time. *tr.Mileage was 55000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006 car safety problem was reported on Nov 22, 2010.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . i am filing a complaint regarding the stalling issues i've experienced on my 2006 volkswagen passat 3.6l model. the description below is a historical account of the problem and how it progressed to the current state. i first noticed the issue around 8000 miles or so where the key fob would get stuck in the ignition. after reading some posts on vwforum, i worked around the intermittent issue by clicking the gear shift 3 times to disengage the key fob from the ignition. around 24k mile or so, i noticed the stalling issue immediately after the car was started. this problem was intermittent as well and seemed to occur during extreme weather conditions - cold or hot. at this time, the error 'steering column failure' would register intermittently. around 60k the problem progressed and the frequency of occurrence increased. i reported the issue to the dealership and they were not able to reproduce the issue. looking back at the multiple blogs and forums on this topic, i believe the dealership should have been familiar enough with the issue that further research into the problem would have been warranted. i was not aware of the widespread issue at the time and did not insist on having the dealer research the issue while the car was still in warranty. the inspection fee was enough to deter me from pushing further specially if the problem could not be reproduced. currently, at 88k miles, the problem of stalling when starting can be reproduced at will. there is a workaround posted on the same vw forums of specific steps to start the car that i'm currently using. otherwise, the car does not start and the errors 'steering column failure 'immobilzer defective' is displayed consistently. we also experienced two instances of the car stalling while driving on the freeway. i believe this is caused by the same immobilizer error caused by the steering column failure as the two errors displayed when trying to restart. this is a serious and life threatening issue. *tr.Mileage was 24000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WVWEU73C06P. Volkswagen Passat 2006 problem was reported in CHULA VISTA, CA. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006 car safety problem was reported on Sept 26, 2011.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . vehicle started making a knocking/rattling noise that made the engine sound like it was a diesel. the engine in this car is a 3.6 v6 gasoline engine. i brought it into my mechanic as soon as possible and he advised against driving it any more as it sounded like the timing chain was loose. after attempting to get at the noise from under the hood he found out he had to get under the cover on the back of the engine to get to the lower chain. this would require removal of the transmission in the front since the car is a 4motion awd. at that point i had to put $2000 down because of the labor to take everything apart. i've searched online and found many other people have had this same issue, due to an oil pump bolt that fails. there are links to these failures here: http://www.passatworld.com/forums/74-club-b6/327507-3-6-oil-bolt-failure-reference-material.html i called vw customer care and the person on the phone knew nothing about the problem, but said they recommended the timing chain be replaced at 100,000 miles. with my service bill currently upwards of $2,000 with just the labor to get to that chain, i don't think its right that it should cost that much for a 100,000 mile maintenance item. *tr.Mileage was 105000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006 car safety problem was reported on Sept 22, 2011.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . lost most of power while driving on highway. drove vehicle (2006 passat 3.6l) to vw dealer where they diagnosed a "timing chain issue". vw dealer claimed they would fix engine for $5000, used replacement for $8000, or new engine for $10,500... after hearing that good news, towed vehicle to local vw pro who also diagnosed "timing chain issue", and was given the go-ahead to fix. problem isolated to intermediate shaft bolt, which had backed out, allowing timing sprockets to wander. bolt itself is nearly sheared in half - good thing we stopped when we did. bolt was also rubbing on timing chain cover, and would have likely broke or ground thru timing chain cover. this problem was corrected by my local vw guy for $3300, which included all oem parts, new water pump, plus plugs. imho, this is a serious safety issue for owners which may experience this problem. minimal research on the web indicates i'm not the only one with this issue. the loss of power at highway speeds was alarming enough without thinking of what may have happened had the bolt broke, or worn thru the timing cover. from a mechanical perspective, i'm extremely dismayed at how this could happen in the first place. i have about 30 years of mechanical experience with car engines - mostly with 60's and 70's era vehicles. my experience would hold suspicion that a bolt backing out of the timing sprocket would be the fault of the mechanic who installed it, either by applying the incorrect torque, oil under the bolt, or not applying loc-tite to threads. *tr.Mileage was 88000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006 car safety problem was reported on Aug 15, 2011.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . in august, my check engine light had been coming on and off for about two weeks. i made an appointment at the dealership. they found several faults and recalls (my car only had 39,000 miles) and told me that the repairs would be around $800. i paid this amount only for the light to come on about a week later. i called the dealership to make another appointment but the light went off and stayed off about a month and was told to try changing or tightening the gas cap. i did both, however, the problem persisted. the light came on again and stayed on and in november, i brought the car back. i was told there was a problem with the cam shaft and that the car was no longer safe to drive because the cam shaft attached to the high performance fuel shaft was completely worn through. additionally, the part is on back order for a few weeks!!! obviously vw is aware of this issue and has done nothing to notify owners. i have been to the same dealer three times and was only told recently after complaining about several strange noises and engine light issues. 1) how did you not see this before? 2) if this was covered by the warranty, then why didn't it get fixed the first time? i believe that the original problem was caused by this "camshaft" issue and i was ripped off. *tr.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WVWAK73CX6P.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006 car safety problem was reported on Jan 12, 2011.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE . i noticed that i was receiving notifications to change the oil more often prior to 3000 miles. when i went to dealership to determine why i was told that the car should not require an oil change usually until 6000 miles. i was totally baffled because i am barely making the 3k mark. so, after another oil change shortly 3000 miles...i got the notification to shut off engine, oil level too low. i panicked and had the car towed to the dealership. they said it was alright and some car asorb more than others. a few weeks later, i received notification of a check engine light. this was supposedly the cam shaft. this was replaced in feb 2011. continously i experienced the low oil level and have had it monitored. the check engine light came on the next day after it was monitored. the dealership is unable to determine why i am experiencing this issue. i went to a local auto store who stated it was the cam shaft. at halls volkwagen, a volskwagen specialist was there at the time and suggested that they clean my engine completely. this was one week ago and guess what, the check engine light is back. i went back to another auto store who confirmed again it was the cam shaft. yes, there is an extended warranty on the cam shaft. this is twice in a year it will require replacing? my warranty is about to end. im not coming out of pocket to get a cam shaft every year. something else has to be wrong. also, i would like it noted that i purchased this car at car max. the car fax stated that the car was not in any accidents. the driver side door has been replaced and has the sticker information from when it was replaced. i think that i was mislead about the state of this vehicle. total check engine lights since purchase - 9 total notifications to shut off engine due to low oil level 9. *tr.Mileage was 49700 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006 car safety problem was reported on July 15, 2012.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with ENGINE . while driving on a busy highway in philadelphia pa (schuylkill expressway), my 2006 vw passat 3.6l 4 motion lost power and limped to the side of the road almost causing several accidents in the process. after taking the auto to two different non-dealer specialist and then a vw dealer - all three stated that the default code (p0016 -008-incorrect correlation - mil on) meant that the oil pump bolt failed and caused the engine to go into limp mode. one specialist said i was lucky to get to 110,000 miles as most of these bolts fail at a range from 60,000 to 70,000 and that this bolt that was used being of poor quality will, and has caused catastrophic engine failure and could cause a loss of power and a rear end collision - all three (the two non-dealer and the vw dealer service manger were well aware of the problem, stated it was common on 2006/2007 passat and as more and more of these 2006/2007 get older - more will fail and could cause accidents or worse. i would like to know if an investigation could be done and a recall established. there is a wide range of repair cost, potential for property damage and ultimately loss of life for a $5.00 bolt that the manufacturer knows is flawed and will not fix it. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 110000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006 car safety problem was reported on Sept 27, 2013.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with ENGINE . check engine light came on, we took it to dealership and had repairs done including oil change, after a day of driving the check engine light came on again, returned to dealer, more repairs were done, paid around $3,000 in repairs to timing belt, tensioner, guide pulleys, and water pump. after that repair, the light again came on and returned to dealer, was told that metal was found in oil filter housing and engine will need replaced to address the concern. could not afford at that time and was not informed it could not be driven, the check engine light was off and were told that upon acceleration from stop the metals would scrape. car was still operable, c/e light was off and needed for transportation to work and after 3 trips to and from repair shop (3 rivers volkswagen) and all of the money already spent on repairs to "fix" the same issue leading up to this, i was not able to do that at the time, as well as being skeptical of paying $9k more! was driving on the highway when the oil pump bolt failed completely and caused engine to cease. later learned that this was a common issue on the 2006 vw passat 2.0t engines and that it can cause catastrophic engine failure, that vw was aware of the design flaw and has manufactured a replacement bolt but has never issued a recall and does not inform owners of these cars that there is potential for this engine failure. http://www.faqs.org/car/volkswagen-passat-2006/engine/#ixzz2mckgqsg2 i was lucky not to have an accident as the engine failed while driving on the highway, and had to get a tow home. this is a potential accident waiting to happen for many like myself who were never told the engine may cease and could result in people being injured or killed. there needs to be a recall on this as there are many others having this exact issue on this car. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 90335 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006 car safety problem was reported on Feb 10, 2014.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2006, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . i took the vehicle in to have the headlight repaired. both had stopped working over the weekend due to the insulation becoming brittle and breaking off of both wires to the plug that holds the light bulb. the wires were shorting out preventing the headlights from working. i made a temporary fix by applying electrical tape to the wires that allowed the lights to work. the car has about 120000 miles on it. the service people at west houston vw, [xxx], indicated this is a fairly common problem and the entire headlight assembly will need to be replaced at a cost of about $ 800. i see this as a defect with the wires used for the assembly. i checked on-line and there are numerous reports of problems with the 2006 passat headlights failing. i contacted vw customer care for assistance and was denied any assistance due to the age of the car and the mileage. they also indicated there was no recall or service alert on the problem. i find this hard to believe since the staff at west houston vw knew exactly what the problem was once we described it to them. it seemed to be a fairly common problem that they have seen with the headlights failing. this is a serious safety issue both from the lack of lights and the possibility of an electrical short that could cause a fire. i have worked for a wire manufacturer and the insulation does not just become brittle and fall off of the wire. there is a manufacturing defect with the insulation on the wire. vw needs to address this issue and issue a safety recall to repair/replace the defective wiring. information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6). *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 12000 miles.
