    Default Totally Sick of Vectra's

    After having 2 over the past couple of years, it's time to say good bye.

    Current car has just been trouble from the start. Time to get rid.

    Hello VW.

    I've owned 3 passats and done up to 120k in all of them. Never had any major problems at all. Just better manufactured in my opinion.

    Theres horror stories with all cars ive worked for VW and the only bullet proof passat was the old 1.9sdi and tdi. All the diesels from every manufacturer have DMF and DPF problems and thats just the start lol.

    Its just how you drive/treat it and the luck of the draw with the car.

    I had a 2007 passat diesel and it was a joke. Rattly trim, misfiring, failing injectors and a whole replacement gearbox at 50k. VW are no better than any other manfuacturer these days. Nice cars but not worth a premium or any better built than any other mainstream manufacturer IMO

    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : SRI VX-Line Nav

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI [170 PS]

    Year : 2015

    Mileage : 27000

    Default

    When the 1.9 gets a bad reputation a good few will say 'it's because there are lots of them about hence more problems.'

    Is that theory not plausible here with VW? Nothing wrong with VW at all. Certainly no more faults than any other car make.
