2006 Volkswagen Passat Problems

Engine Oil Leaks

Engine oil leaks are common from the valve cover gaskets and camshaft chain tensioner gasket.

ABS Light Due to Control Module Failure

The anti-lock brake system (ABS) control module may fail causing the ABS light to illuminate. Failed modules should be replaced to restore ABS operation.

Engine Misfire Due to Failed Ignition Coil, Spark Plug, or Ignition Wire

An ignition coil or spark plug may fail unexpectedly resulting in an engine misfire and possible illumination of the Check Engine Light. Vehicles equipped with spark plug wires may also develop a misfire caused by a failed spark plug wire.

2006 Volkswagen Passat Recalls

Driver's Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures And Sprays Metal Fragments

The driver's frontal air bag inflator may deploy the air bag with excessive pressure, resulting in the inflator rupturing and causing metal debris to be sprayed onto vehicle occupants. Dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag inflator free of charge to resolve the concern.

Volkswagen Recalls 2006-2007 Passat Models Due to Fractured Vacuum Line

Volkswagen is recalling models equipped with 2.0L engines with 147 kw because they may have a vacuum line that can fracture and become disconnected at low ambient temperatures. This may cause the brake power assist to become inoperative, which can lead to increased braking effort and stopping distance. Dealers will install the newly designed vacuum line.

Volkswagen Recalls 2006-2007 Passat Models Due to Wiper Motor Failure

The wiper motor may fail during heavy rain due to excessive moisture entering the wiper motor. This may cause the wipers to stop working, which can reduce visibility and lead to a crash. Dealers will install a special cover and sealing kit.

SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS NOT BEING...
I would never ever buy a VW again. Way to many repairs on this car. Seemed ok up to about 75,000 miles. Then its one trip after another to the dealership. I go in for a simple $90 oil change and there is always something needs repaired. Nothing light on repairs very costly!! SIMPLE - DON"T BUY A VW
I have had my VW Passat for 4 years and had numerous repairs . The capper is my VW just died at 66,000 miles .The engine siezed. Changed oil every 5k with synthetic oil and kept going back to the dealer for power loss and they could not figure out the issue, now my engine is seized.
