Volkswagen Passat Reliability

You won't find Volkswagen Passat reliability information like this anywhere else. Actual repair frequencies, not just vague dots. So you can tell how much the Volkswagen Passat truly differs from competing car models in reliability.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to much more closely track Volkswagen Passat reliability as the cars age. Others tell you how reliable the Volkswagen Passat was a year ago, when the cars were a year younger and had 12,000 fewer miles on them. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Volkswagen Passat has been recently.
