Just wanted to pop in and mention I've had a pretty good experience with the Volkswagen Autobarn in Evanston, IL (North Suburb of Chicago). The people there are friendly, the auto service has been reliable, and the prices for service have been reasonable. Purchased two cars from them now and...
I am pissed at this dealership now...Never have I been nailed to the wall from a company then this one did to me. I called up parts department to see what the price would be for a rear right window reg.. The parts guy said yes, we have the part in stock and will ship it out to you today. Well...
In my recent search for new coil packs for my 1.8T I searched the internet for prices and then price compared local dealerships.
Here are some prices I've found from the internet on the lower end:
06B-905-115-R $25.92 + shipping...
I've been looking around the internet to figure out what is the best price for a set of four coil packs to replace the one that appears to be failing. I'm replacing all four based upon this comment from Robert Ford (Fixmy59bug):
You are correct. Your engine code is AUG. The coil part number...
For all the Chicagoland folks whom have been helped out by Rich Topf, wanted to let them know Rich is leaving Autobarn Mount Prospect.
I spoke with one of the parts desk staff at the Autobarn in Evanston and he said Rich had given his two weeks notice earlier last week.
Best wishes to Rich...
I tried to attach a photo, but didn't know how. Anyway, the oil level was more than an inch above max on the dipstick, after oil change at Autobarn. I had to drain about 1 1/3 quarts.
I am attaching the picture, but don't know if it will work...
Same as some of you guys here, I had rather good opinion about Autobarn, which is one of authorized VW dealers in Chicago area. Until my last visit there two weeks ago.
When I called to set an appointment, I was informed that my 03 Passat 1.8T required synthetic oil, and it would cost $59.95...
Called to get pricing on a rear ashtray because my current (local) dealer would not cover under warranty. He gave me an awesome price after our passatworld/cb5 discount. Right when I was about to order, I told him of another potential part that might need replacing (center front armrest). He put...

I want to let y'all Chitownland "citizens" (or is it denizens ... ;) ) of PW known about the great experience I had with Autobarn Mt Prospect. I have been shopping around locally to get my timing belt changed (I'm >90K miles alaready) and my Raxles axles from the GB put on (I wimped out on a...
I've done some research on the W8 and I'm ready to take the plunge. Has anyone had experience purchasing a VW from Autobarn Countryside in Chicago? I'm thinking about purchasing a W8 wagon from them that has 12K on it. Carfax seems clean on the car. My concern is I'm in Seattle and the...
Rich has put together a superb staff over there and I highly recommend the work they do. They are very open to customer requests, I have never seen a dealership so approachable top-down, with none of the snooty attitudes of most other dealers or Euro specialists.
Took a quick look at the new...

Motorola combined forces w/ VW and developed a bluetooth set up. Is this something Passat World would be interested in? We're looking to "possibly" putting up a group buy on this and are looking for feedback.
Is this something you'll find nice for your vehicles? We installed a Bluetooth...

I'm looking at Chicago-area dealers for a wagon for my wife. Autobarn has 11 used wagons available (4 are W8, 6 are GLX) and all ELEVEN are manual transmissions!
I'm sorry, but does that seem awfully unusual to anyone else? Three of the four W8 have less than 10,000 miles on them. (They've...
