    How much longer would this one have gone? This is my second one in 110k miles. This was my first time doing this job, and including the removal of the engine cover, it barely took one hour. The dealer charged me 2.6 hours of labor the first time.

    Hey about how much would a dealer 60k miles service cost for a 2003 Passat GLX? Also, any clue how much installation of a Euro tag is?

    Hello, I am coming up on the 60k Serivce that needs to be done on my car. How much does it cost. I am finding people that are saying around 700-900 and what they do, but I thought that the timing belt needs to be changed also and that is not included in the 700-800 costs. When does it need to...

    My 2001.5 1.8T has finally hit 57k miles, and its almost time for that 60k maintenance. I know that the timing belt should be replaced, especially since my car is 9+ years old. What else do I need to do or should I do exactly at 60,000 miles? My car is running power above stock, so take in...

    Hi all, I have a 2003 Passat 1.8T with 63K miles. I am due for an oil change soon and was wondering about the whole 60k recommended service procedure. Is it a good idea to have them change the fluid in the trans and the power steering like suggested? I am aware that the timing belt, water...

    Ok so my car has 95k on it right now. The engine was reconditioned by my VW dealer because of a coolant/oil issue that they couldnt fix. (At their cost). My question is how long will this car last me (average) if I have done all the preventative maintenance. I know I'm late on the TB but am...

    i called the VW Dealer to ask how much is the 60K Mi. Tune-Up and the Service Advisor said $510.00 is base cost and if there are any additional parts they will let know. Oh... this would help: i just bought (2 months ago) a 2006 Passat 2.0T with 52K Mi. (i drive 4K-5K Mi. every month... so it...

    Trying to decide whether to keep my 05 wagon around a few more years or buy a new wagon. Bought the car used with 33k miles on it, now have 64k miles. So far, other than normal maintenance, have had f&r brakes, and now need outer CVs. My question is, what have you experienced with your B5 Passat...

    I have heard timing belt and water pump should be replaced. Since its still under the CPO, should I try doing the work or will the dealer handle this?

    I can't be this busy with work and school that I totally missed this.. I saw one at UCSD and I couldn't tell what the hell it was. When did Audi start making an A5? I have seen no ads or anything, is there no hype about this car. Is it not as nice looking as I think it is?

    Being paranoid, I hard an indy changed my TB at 60k. The mechanic showed me the TB and told me the belt is not in good shape and I am lucky that it was changed in time. Here are the pictures: Just a reminder to fellow PWers that passat's TB can indeed go bad early.
