    Just got the letter today informing me of a class action lawsuit suit settlement against VW for the timing chain tensioner defect, and resulting problems. VW has agreed to extend the warranty on the tensioner and timing chain for 10 years or 100K miles, whichever comes first. Doesn't help me...

    Just want a general opinion.. are those suits worth joining?? Not only with the emissions fraud, but I'm having continuous freezes and lock ups with the Infotainment system (RNS-510) which I've provided both VWoA and the dealership video proof of this and neither is providing any level of...

    Hello, thank you for reading this post. I have a 02 Passat, 1.8t. I have owned this car since 133K miles. It has suffered deferred maintainence, but now I need to get it inspected. My plan is to tackle some issues over the next few weeks. It leaks a good bit of oil, so I am going to tackle...

    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...

    Hello all, B5, 1998. I wanted to share (attached) with you a letter I received from Water Ingress Administration. They say they will reimburse all sunroof related water damages. But what is interesting is one must own the car by March 24, 2010 and repair should have done before May 7, 2010...

    Hi, We bought our VW Passat Highline Estate 2010 in Oct 2011. There were two diff makes of tyres on them. Mileage when bought was 41000. Saw-tooth effect noted and VW said that's normal. We changed 4 tyres in Dec when mileage showed 49000. Yes, the sound from tyres had improved but.... In April...

    Is there some sort legal action that can be done to a dealer when you catch them in the act of trying to defraud you? I had a coil go bad Thursday on my 2002, 1.8T. I went to the dealer on Friday without the car to see if would qualify for the coil recall, it did so I told them I would have it...

    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...

  11. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello all, I owned a 2003 VW Passat 1.8T sedan and like many of you, the vehicle drained hundreds of dollars in both maintenance and service fees. I was very relieved when I traded in the vehicle. Last week, I received another class action lawsuit about the Oil Sludge problem and this time, I...

    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...
