  2. VW Class Action Suits

    New Member Introductions
    Greetings! When I have my 2003 VW Passat idling at a red light, even though the Temp gauge shows 190, which is my norm, it'll be rocky and rattling somewhat. If I put the car in Neutral, then, all rockiness is gone and all is right in the world. Well, that is for a few seconds before I have...

    B5 Garage
    So after some heavy searching, both here and on VWVortex, it's clear to see this topic has been beaten to death. However I've yet to find anyone with quite the same issue I'm experiencing... I've found these two threads with similar issues, but neither one clearly answers the questions I have in...

    1999 Passat 1.8T FWD. 225/40x18 tires. I would describe the braking as pretty high force, pretty soft pedal feel. Took the car out for data logging today. Tried two emergency stops (full force) from 50 mph. I was not able to lock up the wheels. Pedal went quite far down. 2nd emergency stop...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Well, I have to admit I am very surprised about this one! As many of you know, there was a class action settlement for the 99 MY 1.8T engine timing belt failures. I had dutifully saved all of my repair receipts from my timing belt "incident" in 2007 as I had gotten wind of this lawsuit over...
