"...sales of the diesel Passat, or TDI, could be even higher, but production is hindered by a lack of engines"

Are any of the other car companies paying attention?
The typical car company just thinks 'Oh, North American consumers don't like diesels'.
Actually, we do. They get just as good or better mileage than hybrids, and are a lot more mechanically simple.
Build them, and we will buy them!

What I really want is...
1) Wagon/hatchback body style (not SUV)
2) Diesel engine
3) All-Wheel-Drive
4) Manual Transmission

I can get three out of four of my "wants" from several vehicles, but I can't find 4/4 for anything available in Canada or the USA. Europe, lots of choice!

bhcompy: Enjoy your ridiculously expensive maintenance and electrical problems!


Actually, over the 10 years we owned her last VW, a 2002 Golf, we didn't have that many issues outside of a sunroof drain that kept getting clogged. The engine and electrical were solid, and didn't even have any issues when we had a remote start installed aftermarket. Compared to the thousands we dumped into her old car, a 1994 Cavalier that blew an engine head gasket midway through us owning it and seemed to eat brake pads for lunch, the Golf was actually a pretty reliable car. Sure, it wasn't as trouble free as my 2005 Corolla, but few cars are as bulletproof as that Toyota has been. Hopefully we'll have similar luck with the Beetle.

VWs are bullshiat to work on because of the weird-assed construction. To change the headlight bulb on my daughter's Jetta, you have to remove the freaking battery. You also need to rent a small child to remove the oil filter. And the 2.0 uses oil like crazy.

Interesting. That block hasn't changed significantly since 1973 but yours burns oil and the millions of others don't. Must be the car I'm sure.

Yeah, maintenance is a bit of a challenge on some things, that's the downside to compact design. On the up side you have more room in the passenger compartment.

Believe it or not, it appears the problem isn't VW/Audi. It's Getrag. They simply don't have the capacity to build AWD trannies capable of handling the torque. The 01x is amazing, just need to start pumping them out AWD capable.

Go ahead and do a Google search for "2002 Jetta burning oil" and then tell me that it is just me. Compact design? Right, requiring removal of the front fascia to replace a headlight makes total sense. I also didn't realize extra room in the cabin comes from cramming the oil filter into the block.

No need. I've got a 1990 2.0 block with over 150k miles on it. It doesn't burn oil excessively. I've worked on hundreds if not thousands of them since the early '80s. That block is dead solid.

I'd guess you're facing a PCV issue, the rings and valves are fine. Maintain your car and it'll take care of you. Ignore it/run the shiat out of it and you'd have a different result.

Oh, and the oil filter is still in the same place it's been on 4 cyl VWs since the mid '70s. I understand your frustration, but this aint' a chevy. Some things are gonna be a bit different.

No need to read the facts? 85k on the odo and it burns 2 quarts between oil changes (5k interval). VW says this is normal. Meanwhile, my lowly F150 burns zero oil between changes and I can change the oil filter without having to twist myself into pretzel-like shapes.

I'm guessing you don't drive your f-150 at 5k rpm like your daughter does whith her little european car. Check the pcv, if that isn't the problem, have a talk with you daughter about how a person is supposed to drive. It's that easy.

Good lord man, the tuner market has been taking that block and pushing it to 400hp dependably for decades. Thousands of them out there at that tune, but somehow yours is burning oil and the rest aren't.

There was a TSB in 2002, for a number of VINs that were produced in Central America. You had that maintainance right? If your vin was not part of that TSB, it's almost guaranteed your results are self inflicted. The issue that caused the TSB was resolved 8 years ago. Your CSB isn't indicative of the dependability of that engine.

Your inability to change the oil filter on one of the most common engines on the face of the planet really isn't helping your story either.
 
2012-07-04 09:56:18 PM  
Their electrical systems actually are improving. It used to be Volkswagen was German for "electrical fault" but they're doing better with that.

The real trick for VW is to maintain it. They've benefiting off the Passat being the most recent sedan in its class off a refresh so it's industry leading. As other manufacturers refresh in that class we'll see what happens. VW tends to really drastically spike up and down. Some years they sell as many units in North America as GM sells Chevy Impalas (their entire line sales = Impala sales), other years they get spikes in one sector. It's something most of the smaller manufacturers have. They have a smaller line so they refresh them quicker and sometimes manage to hit a niche with that refresh. Then they get killed off a year or two later when the Asian 3 and Big 3 move in with greater resources to attack that niche. VW needs to hold ground.

/jealous of our resident's CC, nicely priced sedan you can get a manual in
//also the Passat is likely benefiting from the fact Honda lost its entire tech center in the earthquake and just recently got everything back up to normal speed, normally the Accord owns the class the Passat is in, but the Accord has fallen a bit behind recently due to all the earthquake and power outage drama

My wife's 2002 Golf with the 2.0 liter engine also would burn oil at about the same rate. However, aside from having to keep an eye on the oil level between changes, it never caused a mechanical issue in the decade we owned the car. Compared to the massive engine failures I've had with other cars I have owned that also received regular maintainence, I just never considered it a huge issue with the Golf. If the engine is still running well, I couldn't care less if it is burning a few quarts. Now if it was leaking oil, that's a different matter.

I don't buy vehicles fresh off the lot, so since I screwed up and didn't pay for the CarFax, I don't know about the recall issue. But I am able to change the oil and filter, albeit by means no normal human should have to resort to. And I can also spell maintenance.

Your stupidity is self inflicted, too, I'd guess.

majestic: rohar: majestic: Ok, man. She also doesn't tow two tons of shiat either. But anyway, keep ignoring the fact that numerous VW owners have issues with oil burning and that VW thinks it is normal to burn two quarts between oil changes.

There was a TSB in 2002, for a number of VINs that were produced in Central America. You had that maintainance right? If your vin was not part of that TSB, it's almost guaranteed your results are self inflicted. The issue that caused the TSB was resolved 8 years ago. Your CSB isn't indicative of the dependability of that engine.

Your inability to change the oil filter on one of the most common engines on the face of the planet really isn't helping your story either.

I don't buy vehicles fresh off the lot, so since I screwed up and didn't pay for the CarFax, I don't know about the recall issue. But I am able to change the oil and filter, albeit by means no normal human should have to resort to. And I can also spell maintenance.

Your stupidity is self inflicted, too, I'd guess.


So look at that, a used car with no history. The previous owner paid amazing care right? You sure of that? Oh, and it's the daughter's car. She drives it properly too? Just for kicks, lets's be a CSOB and not pay for the paperwork. This CSOB thing is probably a one time thing too right?

I'm guessing the car's well over 100k miles. When was the last time you changed the PCB?

Here's the kicker, if it is one of the cars affected by the TSB VW will STILL honor their comitment and resolve the issue. You'd know of the TSB if you googled precicely what you told me to google. Now would be a good time to take some personal responsibility, figure out what the hell is going on and quit blaming everyone else.

Crap, PCV, not PCB. I can't brain very well today.
