Passat 5-cyl

  • 1,200 miles
Our 2013 Volkswagen Passat leaked gasoline on to our garage floor while sitting in the garage. The garage floor was covered and you could visibly see the fuel dripping from the gas tank. The fumes filled our garage and home and resulted in extensive clean up and ventilation. The Volkswagen dealership arrived with a flat bed and towed the car back to the dealership. The man who towed the car even commented about the odor and you could visibly see the gasoline running from the car as it was loaded on to the flatbed. The Volkswagen dealership says there is nothing wrong and no changes to the vehicle are necessary!
