 I started my vehicle, and within 30 seconds i smelled burning. i shut down engine and noticed smoke bellowing out from under hood. i lifted hood and found an electrical harness on top of engine was on fire and melting. i was able to borrow pliers from someone and disconnected battery cable. i had vehicle towed to dealership, and they called me this morning stating that the coil had an internal short. i asked them how i can be assured that this wouldn't happen again when parts are replaced and there reply was this is very rare. i have a baby less than 2 years old and it scares me to death to think what may of happened if my wife was driving with my child. *tr

 My 2007 vw passat wagon has 3 times on trips longer than 4 hours in 0 degree weather started chugging and shaking on the highway. each time has been worse and lasted longer. the first time a call to a vw dealer said it was the gas cap and it would be ok. the second time a subaru mechanic diagnosed misfiring and a bad coil so i took it to a vw dealer who said there was nothing they could find wrong to fix. the third time i was nearly stranded on a remote highway. i eventually got home to my private mechanic who agreed it was misfiring and a bad coil and will fix it. *tr

 We had few failures on vw 2007 passat wagon; first was a recall on one of the software parts (approx 28 000 miles); then ac pipe system recall; then we had an oil leak (37 000 miles-no damage or warnings prior to that)-dealership fixed it without much explanation; laud noise from the engine- gasket on one of the vales in the engine failed (45 000 miles)-no prior warnings-fixed without much explanation from the dealership except that if we keep driving? car will use more gas then usual... *tr
