Volkswagen Passat (2005 - 2011)
Last updated 5 January 2015
Report of LED rear lights of Volkswagen dealer maintained 4-year old Passat failing and investigation showing that all feeds supplies and earths to lamps required replacing. Not covered by goodwill....
Volkswagen engineers can't make up their minds what to do with the engine of the Passat. At first it was longitudinal, slung ahead of the front wheels like an Audi's.
Then, in 1988, they laid it horizontal across the car, like the Golf's. Then, in 1996, they went back to Audi-style longitudinal. Now we have a new Passat, once again with a transverse engine.
