    Howdy. I've had this car, bought used, since 2012. Interior is awesome black leather. Doesn't even look worn. Ignition coil caught fire, fuel pump went out, but other than those pricey failures it's fun to drive.

    Hi all, I have a 2008 1.9tdi pd (eng code bxe) that's driving me crazy. About 2 weeks ago while slowing down at a junction, the car cut out with no codes logged. I've checked and double checked all pipes, wires and connections related to the refitting of the engine and everything is fine. I have...

    I just bought a 2008 Passat with the 3.6 V6, 4motion. It replaced a 1998 Volvo V70 T5. I wanted another wagon, not an SUV. I have always done all my own wrenching and I need a resource like this site to learn about this car, I'll be lurking until I find my feet and am able to contribute. Dave

    Hi, my "check brake pad" light came on last Thursday. Coincidentally, I had just just changed my rear brakes the week before. When I looked up the light, I realized the light was only for the front brakes. So, I ran up to the dealer and had them checked. They are just into the yellow zone...

    Hello, Been a while since I've been here. Posting this here as required, but it may actually belong elsewhere. I've got a 2008 Passat that I'm looking to install a hitch and bike rack on. I've looked at bike racks that mount on trunk lids, but really don't like them. So, I'm thinking of...
