    My 2001 V6 has 45K miles, and the thermostat is failing open. The 10yr/100K warranty covers "Engine: cylinder block and all internal parts...water pump..." Because the thermostat isn't mentioned in the list of inclusions, and mounts outside of the block, I don't think there's a good argument...

    I've been reading all over the place about the black coolant sensors that go bad very early. I have not yet been able to locate my coolant sensor on my 2004 Passat wagon (GLS, 4mo, 1.8T, 5M) but I'm not sure if this is something I should look out for. So far I haven't had any problems; the car...
