    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My car, a faithful '04 M/T Wagon has given me 145k of more-or-less reliable service. But it's also due for a bunch of things all at once that I think it's time to let it go. Right now it needs: - T-belt (regular service) - Suspension refresh (LCA's (already done the UCA's) and shock mounts...
