A bad bargain
I drive a Passat (Petrol), 2010 December version. It cost about $ 40,000 (in Indian Rupee) and for the first three or four years, it rode well. The car has done about 1150000 Kms. The engine oil has been spraying all over and now the engine has given way (the engine sign on the dashboard blinks), and the estimate for fixing the problem is $10,000 (In Indian Rupee)! The car was always maintained with VW's service center and is clearly represents some manufacturing defect, as I had to feed a liter of engine oil every fifteen days for as long as I can recall. In short, the Petrol version turned out to be a lemon. A sad disappointment of what one thought was a dependable brand.
