    I am new to the area and was wondering what dealers you would reccomend for service. I checked the 1.8t list and it only has North Scotsdale listed. Who do you reccomend, and who have you had bad luck with? TIA

    My mother in-law's friend took their Passat to the dealership to have it serviced. I don't know all the details, but the technician hooked it to the computer and said, “you had this thing up to 110 mph”. She said I’ve never driven that fast. Turns out her husband did. Busted!
