Further to my comments below & my emails to both VWoA & Germany Corporate Offices,
I received a phone call from a VP...her remarks after I told her the saga of my 2012 Passat SE.........."Unbelievable"... I was told to expect a phone call early next week after VWoA have fully investigated the dealership & the warranty work carried out..
Compensation+ is definitely on the table..............Watch This Space
Overall I think wind, tire & other misc noises are more from a cost cutting design added to by poor QC at both the plant & dealerships (not all)...
My Passat is barely 3months with only 2400 on the clock..The workmanship at the d/ship is abysmal (monkeys)
Some 10 visits in all -- 2 visits to cure an issue..The 2nd visit to redo the job & clean up after!!
The Passat brings back memories of the old Lotus's & Caterhams:- everyday another x!**!!
I have just sent emails to VWoA & Germany Corp listing All the issues on my Passat. I await replies..
VWoA expect me to make a 100+miles round trip to let another VW dealer inspect my car..
After that they MAY authorize a loaner & offer some compensation..I asked for the details in writing..Sorry:- VWoA say they NO WAY...........
VWoA may have a winner but the future will not be so bright after the myriad of design & QC faults fall upon the new owners shoulders..........
