    Hi, I'm coming up on 50,000 miles on my 2012 Passat 5-speed MT. I've been doing the regular 10k service intervals at the dealer (only had the car for two years, bought it used directly from another person), but now the dealer is telling me that the trans fluid should be changed at the 50k...

    So I obviously haven't owned a VW since the W8. I get my fill of VW quirks with my sister's 2005 Mk V Jetta lol. Since the W8 I've had: a 1995 Mercury Villager mini van (bought it from my best friend as a temporary ride), a 1983 Mercedes 300SD purchased in 2007 with 250K. I drove it to Texas and...

    A couple of years ago, my wife bought a used 2002 Passat V6 ATQ with 90,000 miles on it. The car now has 117,000 miles. I looked through the owners manual for maintenance schedules to figure out when the timing belt should be changed but I couldn't find anything. We assume the timing belt was...

    Today I replaced the PCV Valve on my 2002 1.8t due to jerking(misfires actually) when coming to a stop. I had the problem for about 3 years(~20,000 miles), but it was very subtle and I did not know the cause. I actually thought the jerking was a transmission issue. Recently the jerking increased...

    As noted in another thread, I'm switching out my Passat for a daddy car. My Nephew wants to buy my Passat, but I'm not sure what price to ask. According to Kelly Blue Book, the car has a private sale value from $2200 - $2500. I the past five years I've done a bit of work: - New tie rods...

    My car is in desperate need of some TLC so I hope to put some time and cash into it this fall. I have a 2nd vehicle so I may just pull the Passat in the garage for a week or 2 as I go down my list with what little time I have. I have some minor fixes to perform but the biggest issue is the...

    Guy asked me to handle disposal of his 2003 VW while he is away internationally. At first I was quite dubious of the W8 and a Passat in general after having a few with endless issues. Come to find out these W8's are INCREDIBLE. Love the drive, and the options are pretty baller too. Headlamp...

    Hi Passat World! I bought my Passat 3 years ago - and I've loved the car since. She just reached 151,000 miles and I would like to keep her running past the 200,000 mark. She went into the shop recently and I was given a list of things that needs to be done. I am decent on my "car knowledge" -...

    Any takers on a 1999 1.8T AEB with 193,000 miles on it? Full disclosure, the battery is dead, needs new tires, has an exhaust leak at the flex joint, probably needs new rear rotors. On the bright side, the A/C works, and I replaced the timing belt and water pump at about 125,000 miles.

    Please help me about this failure. Is it possible that car alarm can cause this problem? Thank you!

    Ok, really just a general question as I've never owned a VW before this Passat. 2015 Passat Wolfsburg 1.8t Wife drives around 80 highway miles a day, maybe 5 city. She drives like a pussy. Rotors are already warped and VW says new pad and rotors needed. 34,000 miles. Is this common with...

    Title says it all! As much as I love this car I'm hoping to sell it within the next 10-20 thousand miles for an Audi A6. The only thing it needs is tire rotation, alignment, tires need to be rebalanced, fuel filter change, and the coolant reservoir needs to be replaced.

    We have a GLX 4-motion wagon automatic 2.8 that is surplus to requirements. We also need some money. The scrapyard offered us $250 if it still had the cats and the engine ran. It runs... but there is a short somewhere and it drains the battery so always needs to jumped. I'm color blind, so...
