Volkswagen Passat 2007 Vehicle Speed Control Review #10163399

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2007 car safety problem was reported on Apr 23, 2006.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2007, 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 2007 volkswagen passat 3.6 liter 4 motion. when depressing the accelerator pedal, nothing happens until you've depressed the pedal approximately 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. *nm *ak.Mileage was 20 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2007 car safety problem was reported on Apr 26, 2007.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2007, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE . with just 12,000 miles on the odometer the 2007 volkswagen passat 3.6l 4-motion wagon, the check engine light came on a block from the house. i called the dealership right away and brought the car in the next morning. turns out that my car's engine had a fairly recently discovered known issue with some sort of bolt in the oil pump that is somehow related to the timing chains. apparently, it's a newly discovered design defect that allows this bolt to back itself out and create big problems - even catastrophic engine failure. at first, the dealership ordered a replacement oil pump as a fix but the master tech who was working on my car was concerned that other unseen damage might have been done an appealed to vwoa for a total engine replacement. vwoa must have agreed with the validity of his concerns and authorized a full engine replacement. my car's build date was 11/05 . i have also read forum posts from several other owners who have also had this problem (http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=3193697). *ak .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 12000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2007 car safety problem was reported on Aug 20, 2008.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2007, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . i own a 2007 volkswagen passat wagon with a 2.0 liter turbo engine. it was purchased in july 2008 as a certified pre owned vehicle with roughly 8,000 miles on it. almost immediately, i noticed when the brake pedal was pressed hard, the pedal would go all the way to the floor. vw inspected this and told me that it was designed to function this way. the problem with this (as i discovered later on) is that the brake pedal and gas pedal are very close together. in an emergency situation when the brake pedal is pressed hard, it goes past the gas pedal. on two occassions when braking hard in an emergency, my foot caught on the gas pedal and i was applying the accelerator when trying to brake. this is a serious design flaw that could potentially be very dangerous. volkswagen continues to tell me that this is how the car is and that nothing can be done for me. *tr.Mileage was 9000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2007 car safety problem was reported on Sept 11, 2010.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2007, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . my wife was driving alone in our 2007 volkswagen passat with the 3.6 liter engine on a remote, lonely rural road when the "check engine and oil" lights illuminated. she pulled off the road as soon as possible but was frightened at being alone and stranded on a remote road. fortunately a texas state trooper drove by, stopped and called a tow truck from the nearest town. the vehicle was towed to a vw dealership. the engine was declared a total loss, apparently due to loss of oil pressure. an estimate of $12,000 was quoted to me for replacing the engine. volkswagen of america refused to authorize repairs under the 60,000 mile power train warranty in spite of the numerous complaints registered on line for this exact same problem with this exact same year, make, model and engine including nhtsa odi numbers 10229007, 10203527, 10203183 and 10193036 and additional numerous complaints on the vw vortex website. i have the original odometer disclosure statement showing that vw had driven the vehicle 195 miles before i purchased it. i am filing this complaint because of the potential danger of personal injury to occupants due to fire or harm from passing motorists due to being stranded in a remote location. vw has known of this problem for some time but has refused to take action to remedy the issue prior to catastrophic engine failure. *tr.Mileage was 61117 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2007 car safety problem was reported on Oct 30, 2012.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2007, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with AIR BAGS . we purchased our 2007 passat 3.6l 4-motion wagon and had issues with the airbags from day 1 (literally), and had the dealership replace the sensors under both seats within the first three days. within a month, we began having issues with the tire pressure monitoring system. new tires fixed the tpms issue for about a week, then we began having issues again. a year after we bought the car, my wife had an accident (rear-ended someone), and the airbag did not deploy. we had to have the entire front-end repaired - $10,237 worth of repairs. after the repairs were completed, there was so much external noise than there was before the accident. over the next 8 months, we began having issues with the check engine light coming on (and staying on). when the car shut off one day, right in the middle of (busy) traffic, i took it back to the repair shop to have them look at it. they took our 2007 passat to the vw dealership, which made a blanket statement that none of the existing issues were related to the wreck. therefore, the repair shop would not do anything more to fix the car, and since the car was no longer under warranty, the dealership would not cover the repairs either. on october 29, 2012, 14 months after the accident, the check engine light came on again, as it had many times before. however, on october 30, 2012, the engine died completely. we've since discovered that the bearings are completely gone and were told it will cost us $7,000 to replace the engine. but that still doesn't include repairs to the previously existing issues with the tpsm or the airbag. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 104547 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2007 car safety problem was reported on Apr 17, 2014.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2007, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES . as my husband was driving our volkswagen home from work, he was merging onto an interstate at rush hour, and just as he got up to speed, the parking brake engaged (it's electric--it just turned itself on!). he managed to stop safely and had it towed to the vw dealer, where they looked at it and called us with an long list of things that would need to be fixed--the valves blew, the cv joints cracked, the transmission basically exploded, etc etc etc. it's about $6k worth of repairs! we had it inspected only 2 weeks before and everything was fine, so we're pretty sure this is what happens when the parking brake suddenly engages at that 70 mph. i don't know how my husband managed to maintain control of the vehicle. i am certain i would have been in a serious accident. further research online shows that the electronic parking brake on the 2005-2010 passats frequently had problems, disengaging or engaging unpredictably. the vw dealer service desk told us that they had seen a similar problem on a cc sport just two weeks prior (they actually noted this in the diagnostic report they gave us). i was telling this story at church, and a lady overheard and told me that the same thing had happened in her vw--though luckily they weren't going so fast and there were no other cars around..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 120000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2007 car safety problem was reported on July 25, 2014.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2007, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with AIR BAGS . i would like to bring to your attention an issue that is happening with my 2007 volkswagen passat 2.0t. the carÔ┐┐s airbag fault indicator light is on indicating that the air bag will not deploy if in an accident. i had an independent car mechanic investigate the issue and he informed me that the air bag fault is indicative of a bad sensor. i have an appointment with keffer volkswagen in huntersville north carolina to accurately diagnose the issue on 8/1/2014. i called volkswagen (703-364-7000) on 7/25/2014 and spoke with a customer advocate to file a formal complaint and ask them if they would cover the cost of the repairs. since it is a safety issue and the issue has close proximity to the harness recall from 3 years ago i expected them to cover it. (i had the harness rewired with the new harness as a part of that recall.) volkswagen told me that they would not cover the cost of the diagnosis or repairs due to the age of the vehicle. case # 140556249. i have concerns because i know this is a bigger issue and not just a problem with my car. i have provided some screen prints of other volkswagen owners complaining of the same problems. several drivers have been in accidents where the airbags did not deploy. drivers are concerned about the airbag not deploying during an accident and of the air bag deploying while driving. i also have the same concerns and i believe that this issue should be investigated as a design flaw / defect that could lead to a larger safety recall. if volkswagen is to fix the issue with the same parts will the issues continue to persist? this is deeply concerning, especially when an employee at huntersville north carolina informed me that parts and labor are only covered under warranty for one year after the repairs. will i be paying for this same repair over and over again? your urgent attention and response is expected. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WVWEK73CX7P.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2007 car safety problem was reported on Jan 06, 2014.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2007, manufactured by Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. had a problem with STRUCTURE:BODY . faulty door handles are preventing access to the inside of the car potentially causing the driver being locked in the car after an accident. for more than one year now, the door handles are only engaging with the inner door lock system occasionally. one can hear the unlock mechanism click when engaging the remote, but when one tries to pull the handle, it is missing the usual tension and lifts more easily than usual, and the door does not open. if one crawls into the car via another door (potentially through the trunk) and manually operates the door handle from the inside, the door will open. however, pressing the auto lock button on any door when inside will release the lock, but will not allow an outside person to pull the handle (which remains still disconnected). the issue started with the driver door and over time has moved to all other doors. i was informed by mechanics that this is a known problem with vw passats and is caused by a faulty wiring inside the door. as it relates to all doors, it seems evident that it is triggered by a faulty design. googling, it appears that door issues are reported for vw jettas as well. this is very alarming because if there was an accident and the driver was incapacitated and unable to unlock doors from the inside (despite unlocking the auto lock system), emergency crews or first responders would likely not be able to open the doors from the outside. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 101000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2007 car safety problem was reported on Jan 10, 2015.VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 2007, manufactured by Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. had a problem with FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM . on saturday jan 10, 2014, while cruising at approx 45 mph driving straight, on a dry and clear day, the ecp dash light came on with no warning and the power of the car diminished significantly slowing down immediately and acceleration was extremely slow making it unable to maintain traffic-flow speed and driving uphills was even worse, slowing down and not able to maintain speed until over the hill.(virginia hilly roads). i took car to the local vw dealer, terry vw lynchburg,va who told me that the 2 timing chains and all associated parts would need to be replaced with an estimate of $3536.00. i mentioned to them about the issue relating to the 3.6 engine in this make/model/year having a repeated problem with the oil pump bolt that holds these together working loose and that vw had recognized this issue and replaced the "oil pump bolt" with a new model bolt on the assembly line after this same issue had occurred repeatedly with other owners of this same 3.6 engine. same issue recorded multiple times in vwvortex.com, passatworld.com, carcomplaints.com, volkswagendefect.com, arfc.org, and others. i contacted vw of america who denied this problem existed and that they would not assist in the repair whatsoever. since this is not an isolated issue and vw is not ignorant of it, and it causes the car to slow down immediately without notice, this could have been a serious issue had i been on a hi-speed highway and/or in congested traffic, vw needs to recall these vehicles with this engine and replace these items as this is not a normal failure item on most vehicles with is low of mileage..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 111700 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WVWVU73CX7E. Volkswagen Passat 2007 problem was reported in LYNCHBURG, VA. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 45 mph.
