I did a search and didn't see anything directly relating to the Passat, but the buttons in my '06 are all peeling off. Its the window roll-down lock out button, the door lock buttons, and the mirror adjuster knob. The plastic is peeling and the die cuts for the symbols are getting to be big holes. Car is in for 10k mile and they are replacing under warranty, but I was curious if anyone else had this or if it was due to heat? I live in Louisiana.
