The VIN of this vehicle was WVWPH63BX3_. 2003 Volkswagen Passat w6 2. 8l car will not start or fails to run properly due to ignition misfire or excessive fuel flooding engine. Volkswagen will not repair. Car has been seviced with the best synthetic lubricants and has had extremely good care. The dealership told us the reason the car would not run was because the oil needed changing due to it being loaded with gasoline. The oil had been checked 3 days prior to the incidents and was at satisfactory levels and clean. The car had 6700 miles on the synthetic oil change and was not due for a 3rd oil change. The car has 11813 miles on it. The recommended oil change interval by the dealer was 10000 miles on the synthetic oil. If the car is failing to run and has allows severe gasoline contamination of the oil there are major problems. There seems to be many complaints regarding the reliability of these cars available through other web sites. The engine failing to maintain operation or misfiring while on the highway or if it fails to operate in an unsafe environment proves this vehicle to be a failure in engineering, and reliability.
