braking

  1. New Member Introductions
    I recently purchased a 2020 Passat. I chose it over other makes and models because I LOVE THE STEERING! Question: The car has suggested I brake when there is one else even in sight. Can I shut this feature off?

    I am getting a wheel shake/pulsation when I brake, more noticeable at high speeds. I also feel a grind as well. The issue will not happen when I first brake, its only when the car has been heated up a bit and then it will start. I went to the dealer today and everything checked out good with the...

    '00 Passat 4Mo wagon, 2.8L, ATQ, 134 kmi During routine braking, I notice when the tach drops to ~900 RPM it momentarily bumps up to 1000, then it smoothly drops to ~630 and quickly bumps up to 680, where it remains. The warm idle speed is 680, which is within spec for the 4Mo. I don't feel...

    I have a MY07 2.0T Wagon. I have developed a shudder in the front right when speeds get about 50 mph and it gets worse the faster until about 65 when it lessens but doesn't go away. Accelerating lessens it, braking makes it go away. It is accompanied by a rattle at lower speeds. I thought it was...

    04 V6 GLX Auto with Trip 165.000 miles While braking hard to make a turn the other week I noticed that the brakes (while no issues to date) simply didn't seem to want to slow the car down like I'm used to in other cars I've owned. I was going maybe 35-40mph when I was approaching my driveway...

    I have a 2007 2.0 wagon .. for the last several months it has been making a squealing noise when braking (only during the final stopping stages, not when initially applied) and when turning right. It sounds like a belt whining. My first thought was the accessory belt tension, though it's weird...

    Since last week I hear fairly loud crunching sound (similar to a spring) each time I hit the brake. What would possibly be the cause?

    Hi my 2003 Passat 1.8t FWD has been making a sound that has me a little concerned, not too concerned because it's been doing it for almost a year but it does seem to be getting worse. When I decelerate I hear a humming or almost vibrating sound like I was traveling over tiny speed bumps that are...

    99 Passat 1.8T Auto. So i put on new cleaned rotors and Bosh quiet cast pad. On the front . Left caliper felt a lil funny when compressing the pistion. Pads were not that worn but did not seem to stop the car well. Also pulsed through the pedal. So i thought just replace pads and rotors...

    Hello All, I am having an issue with my daughter's 01 Passat GLS 1.8t. I am not sure if it is a problem, per say, with the transmission or whatever, but the title pretty much says it all! She runs, drive, shift properly, but, when coming to a sudden stop in drive, the transmission disengages...

    I have a 2000 A4 Quattro 2.8 liter manual tranny with 209 K miles that has recently developed the following problem--the car shudders when I apply the brakes. The problem is most pronounced when I’m going 30 to 50 mph but it’s still there at higher and lower speeds. The steering wheel really...

    Just got back from 2 weeks vacation. 2002 passage was parked. Keys lost with baggage. Spare key needed to be reprogrammed. Towed to dealer. Reprogrammed, no problem. Driving away, the rear brakes grind/pulse at the rate of tire rotation, slight pulse in the braking action as well...

    So if I'm on the motorway doing 70-80mph and I need to use my breaks to slow down to abouut 65mph, then I go to accelrate there is like a slight jerk. This has happened for a year or so, but sure it's getting worse, any ideas wht it could be? I don't have access to a code reader and not sure...

    Got a new problem, I went to leave my neighbor hood this morning which is about a 1/4 mile from my driveway to the main road. I went to brake @ the end of a road leading out of my neighborhood @ a stop sign and Passat would not stop. I applied my brakes going ~20mph, pushed the clutch in with...

    I am have a strange issue with my 05 passat wagon. Fairly often while driving at highway speeds I will hear a weird noise coming from the instrument cluster / gas and brake pedal area and then it seems like the car is applying the brakes briefly itself and it will pull to one side or the other...

    I'm experiencing a shudder at the very end of braking. It usually doesn't happen when braking from higher speeds. More likely on a slow roll up to a stop sign or red light. It actually feel more like when gears aren't meshing and they finally find the right groove. Has anyone experienced...
