    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm getting these two codes that crop up about every 200 to 300 miles or so on my '03 Passat V6. They always come up together. After doing a lot of reading/researching, most people simply replace their cats when these codes come up. However, I REALLY want to avoid that since I am in...
