  1. 2012 Passat - CAUTION!!!

    Volkswagen Passat TDI Discussion
    It's always a learning experience with a brand new car. ;) I just found out while clearing ice and slush from around the base of my windshield that you can NOT raise the wiper blade arms more than a couple of inches before they contact the hood. It is not possible to stand the wiper blades...
  2. Windshield Replacement & VIN Number Caution

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Just had my windshield replaced at my place of business while I worked. I went with a company that my Insurance Co. (Amica) recommended (Auto Glass of New England). From reading previous posts on this site I knew to look to see if my VIN number was visible after the install. Well you can't...

    I bought some Auto-RX last night. Today I get a phone call that several gasoline transactions from Florida were put on my card last night and this morning. Auto-Rx is in Florida. I am in Wisconsin. I'm not saying they did it, just that their site might not be secure. I will inform them...
  8. Floor jack caution: I bent one of my frame rails...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This must have happened the last time I rotated my tires. I think I was too hurried to use my little plywood block on the jack stand, and a nice little section of the driver's corner frame rail now has a deep indentation in the shape of a jack head By frame rails, I mean, more or less, the...
