    Hello fellow Passat drivers and enthusiasts, I am an owner of a 2004 Volkswagen Passat. It’s the 4-Motion model with the 1.8t engine. For those of you that know this car, it’s great to drive and having it in a manual transmission makes it even better. So, with that being said, I’m looking to...

    Hi everyone, I couldn't find a thread that covered this. Sorry if it's a repeated question. My driver's side heated seat works only on the '5' setting on the dial. It gets so warm that the front edges get too hot. When I dial it down to any other number/setting, it seems to turn off. Would...

    I get this weird drop off in accelerator response when I make a hard left turn. After a few seconds, it comes back to normal, but for that brief time it's like it's gone into neutral. Engine doesn't rev up like stepping on the gas in neutral, though, it just doesn't have "oomph". It doesn't do...

    My "new to me" B5.5 Passat had the sunroof fuse pulled. The owner told me it had a mind of it's own, so he kept it closed. I put the fuse back and everything worked just fine, all winter. But when spring and sun came around, the sunroof would refuse to close all the way. It would try to...
