    I am debating whether to install a cold air intake or a catback exhaust on my 2012 Passat 2.5l. Which one would give me the best bang for the buck? Also, by installing either, would it cause the check engine light to turn on, if so how would I fix that?

    Hello all. I'm at my wits end with a strange droning/resonance sound that's happening between 2000-2200 RPM on my Passat. It's most frequent on the highway after the car has warmed up and starts quietly then gets and stays loud. The first time I heard it, I thought a Civic with a coffee can...

    So this has been ongoing. First, about 7 months ago, started blowing cool air on the passenger side. According to what I have read, this is a partial heater core blockage. Regardless, the car was running fine no problems. About 5 months ago it started heating up after getting off the highway...

    I just recently ran into the problem where I turn ON the heater and it heats up but then you cannot turn the heat off. The temperature knob has not effect, it stays hot. The fan control works fine, the A/C works fine. I have to either turn the fan all the way OFF or turn the system OFF. If I...

    Hello all! VW virgin here and I need an opinion from long time users. Just got a 2013 Passat 2.5L S about a month ago. Got it used with about 10,000 miles on it and last week the throttle body died on my way to work and left me high and dry. I had it towed to the dealer who fixed it for free...

    Hello, I have just joined the forum. I am in the process of obtaining a new 2017 Passat, in the Dominican Republic, through the local VW dealer Avelino Abreu. To my surprise it comes with a 5 cylinder 2.5l engine and it is made in TN. I was under the impression this engine had been phased...

    I just bought used 2014 vw passat 2.5l with 60k miles. So far I have been getting pretty bad fuel mileage, well at least in my opinion. I have been averaging about 24 mpg according to the MFD, most of my driving is on the hwy to get to school. for ex today i had a little over 1/4 of gas so I...

    Hello, I seem to be having a severe driveability problem with my 2.5 liter 2012 Passat. The engine light initially came on and gave me P0106 for the MAP sensor, which I replaced from ebay and the car drove FANTASTIC for about an hour, then all hell broke loose; sporadic revs upon start up, hard...

    I have a 2013 2.5L with 6 speed auto. The manual says when the transmission is in "S" that it will shift through all of the gears. However, mine will not go into 6 when in "S", unless I set the cruise, then it will drop into OD. Can anyone confirm that is normal behavior or not? Thanks in...

    I've been reading posts on this forum and some people are saying you can go 10,000 miles (or 16,000 km) between oil changes on a 2012 Passat 2.5L. I know I could do this on my 2002 Golf TDI. Since I've owned it, I've only done it once on my 2012 Passat 2.5L. Gasoline engines rev at higher RPMs...
