    So someone ran a red light and hit my 2017 Passat SE with Technology yesterday :-( The right front fender is damaged, the hood is bent , the grill and bumper are damaged. But most of all the right front wheel is leaning in. Air bags did not go off I guess as it was a "glacing blow". It is on way...

    I am selling my 2004 Volkswagen Passat GLS with 246,000. I love this car dearly, but I was in an accident last week (the second in a year) which damaged the front right corner, deployed the airbags, took out the AC, windshield, and played havoc with the alignment. I have already put over $3,000...

    So I rear ended a car the other day going about 10 mph, my car barely had any damage besides the bumper being pushed in slightly and the air bags deploying. I replaced both driver & passenger Air Bags from a car at the junkyard that was identical, 2003 V6 4Motion, and I also removed the control...

    Hi all. Today is a sad day for my 2002 GLX wagon. My wife got hit this morning. The wife is OK, but the car got hit pretty bad. Is this fixable? I'm the original owner and would like to keep it. Thanks. GT.

    This was my 2000 GLS 2.8L 5-speed. I never thought about it in terms of safety but I found out quickly enough. I escaped with only two broken legs and some glass in my arm, but today with the help of titanium rods I'm already driving another manual B5 :thumbup:

    My beloved 2000 v6 passat just got hit. I got ass ended by an old lady and it caused my car to hit the truck in front of me. It pushed my back bumper forward slightly and the truck in front of me caused my bumper bolts to get ripped out. This is while I was sitting at a red light. The lady...

    Well, I am sad to say that 'Spunky' and I were rear ended recently. I lawyered up and just heard that the other driver's insurance company is excepting liability. They did provide me with a rental car today and some time next week their insurance adjuster is coming out to take a look at...

    Does anyone know how to check the "charge" on seat belts to tell if they are good or if I need to replace them? See thread for my reason for asking. Can this be checked w/ a VAG-COM? Car in question is a 02 1.8 5spd FWD. Thanks for the assist. Matt:taz:

    Question, will the seat belts in a Passat still retract after an accident where the front air bags deployed?

    My wife was in an accident Sunday evening. She was traveling south bound on a two lane road when a 20 year old guy going north bound lost control of his car. He overcorrected and crossed the center line. The back rear side of his car hit the front of the passat and he ended up in the soybean...
