problem #1

Nov 012012

Passat S 2.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 230 miles

Got the car the day after hurricane Sandy. It was delivered to me at 50 or so miles. I noticed the brake pedal stuck momentarily before coming back up but didn't say anything because I was in desperate need of a car. A week later I got my Jetta delivered and driving both I noticed the brake was a problem and it wasn't just meant to be that way. I also noticed that on my front right tire there were liquid platters coming outwards unlike rain and water which travels inwards. So with about 230 miles on it, took it VW colonial in Boston where they harassed me because they thought I just needed a free rental to put miles on it or something so they refused rental but then they discovered there was indeed a leak in Master Cylinder. Car is in shop and they got me a rental after 24 hrs. Very disappointed at Volkswagen and the dealership that sold me that car. Quirk Volkswagen in Braintree,MA
