  2. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    When I purchased this car after not being a VW owner since 1986, I hoped for "3 years or 200,000 miles" and also hoped to teach myself a lesson about the need for regular/routine maintenance. That was 3-1/4 years ago and appx. 65000 miles and not-quite-as-much-as-I-should-have-done routine...

    So now that I've overcome my dilemma on whether I should keep my 2001.5 Passat 5-speed with 143,000k or sell it, (I'm keeping it!), what potential repairs should I keep in mind or be ready for at that kind of mileage? I plan on driving this car into the ground so I will be tackling each issue...

    We have a 2003 Passat 1.8T GLS Wagon with automatic, leather, ESP and Monsoon that has 88k on the odometer. After much searching and test driving we can't find anything currently on the market that we would rather have. We would need a wagon type vehicle with good visibility as a replacement...

    Needed to jump start my car at the weekend while at the coast, but didn't have any jump leads, so I spoke to the peple that run the carpark and they sent one of the life guards over to jumpstart the car except he connected the leads around the wrong way and has now fried the wiring loom, ABS...

    I've read and received responses on this but to date all of it related solely to 2001 and earlier PCV systems which apparently were REDESIGNED beginning 2001.5? w/many other changes. This is verified by looking specifically at the EKTA diagrams differences. So who has replaced MORE than the...

    I searced "decklid" and "remove decklid" and more... The glass behind my third brake ight (center brake light) looks like crap -- dirty and such. Is there an easy way to remove the decklid or to clean back there that I'm not thinking of? I'd also like to give the decklid a good cleaning. Any...

    I know that most everyone continues to do modifications to some extent regardless of age of your vehicle, but I would think that at some point the cost of maintenance becomes priority than modifications. Currently I'm at the stage where maintenance costs are starting to consume most of the...

    Has any figured out if the Phaeton grip handles fit Passats?? And the next question is can any of us afford them?
  14. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Is this some kind of safety mechanism installed that ayto matically bumps you down to 2nd gear? because it knows you are puching so hard you need to do something in a HURRY? I accidentally discovered this today. For what its worth: I have a 2002 Passat GLS tip. Thanks
