    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm honestly really worried here. I apologize if this is a little long or bad to read. Kinda shaken and freaked out about possible financial problems this could present. About five days ago my brother and I were in my car looking for a restaurant pretty late at night. I had just moved into...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I just bottomed out my car and cracked the oild pan on my 1999 V6 :banghead: . Oils leaking fast. Should I call insurance for coverage? How big a deal is it to replace the oil pan on a V6? $$$? The belly pan is already lost long time ago. 1999 GLS V6 Manual Trans 98k miles. Thanks

    Took a fun dip by my house at 70+. Fastest I had taken it before was 50. Typically I would floor it near the peak of the dip and accelerate through the trough, getting light (minimal neg G) on the launch out of the dip. Well yesterday was different..... I decided to speed up well before the...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was driving through an intersection today (one I was unfamiliar with I may add), and there was a large dip on the other side (crossing a major hwy.. not just a gutter). Anyway, It took me totally by surprise and my car bottomed out and hit the ground pretty hard. As a result, I scraped up the...

  10. First road rally - bottomed out

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Ran my first road rally over the weekend, and had a blast. Did not win, but it was a family outing - and we had a really good time. To avoid the traffic areas, some of the roads were kind of off the beaten path ( a few gravel dirt roads also ) We came up over a hill - perhaps a little on the...
