Car problems happen. We're here to help.

Every VW has a set of problems, and most of those can be tracked, compared, and monitored to come up with recommendations and possible solutions.s

Our Goal is Simple

If you’re shopping for a Volkswagen we want to to give you quick access to information that can help you make an informed buying decision.

If you already own one, we want to connect you with information regarding problems you’re already having and prepare you for what might come next.


Where Does the Data Come From?

We’re a part of the network — a series of sites that are dedicated to car owners. We don’t sugar-coat things or take paid endorsements.

What we do take are complaints and data from real owners. We then combine that with information from NHTSA1, IIHS2, and CAS3 to provide a complete picture about a vehicle.

The end result is a quick summary of what’s likely to go wrong in a specific vehicle. And if we can’t dig up much, we’ll celebrate and recommend the vehicles that keep people happiest.

Our name might have complaints in it, but it’s not all storm clouds and frowns around here.
