    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion

  3. How Risky is Driving with a Failing Thermostat on 2001.5 Passat GLX V6 ATQ?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Symptoms: On a road trip, my dashboard temperature gauge wasn't coming up to normal mid-dial 190 degrees F. It was fluctuating at lower temps. I could still get adequate heat in the car, but I might have had to set the temperature higher than usual. A short time later I got a Check Engine...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The past weekend we drove on a 2hr trip out of state then 2 hours back. On the way there the AC worked fine the entire time until about 1 - 1hr and 15 min in and it just turned off. It was still blowing air but it was no longer cold. I shut it off for about 10-15 minutes. Turned it back on and...

    Well unfortunate situation here, I was driving on a local road about 40 mph when all of a sudden my VW Passat 1.8t 2003 died, without any warning, no engine light, no sign of an issue at all. It sputtered just a little before becoming unresponsive. I had to get the car towed back to the house. I...
  6. Won't Start sometimes, Died while driving, Now won't rev.

    Volkswagen Passat CC Discussion
    I have been having some issues I can't figure out. A month ago my 2000 Passat decided that after running errands that it didn't want to start back up, I tried a few times with no success. I let it rest for an hour and then tried again with it only turning over. At the suggestion of someone in...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I have a 2009 2.0 TSI and the car has started to lose power while driving. I was about 50 miles from home and it started acting up.

  11. 2007 Passat 103Tdi Jerkiness whilst driving - long term intermittent problem

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I have a 2007 Passat 103 Tdi with 6-speed DSG and have been considering replacing it but the wife and I like it so much that it is likely we will replace it with another Passat. I would consider keeping it though if I could solve an issue that has been intermittent for the past three years. It...
  12. Ticking/clicking in the 1st few Minutes of Driving.

    B5 Garage
    99 1.8T A/T Only makes this sound for the first few minutes of driving. If I start the car and give it gas in park or neutral it doesn't not make any noise. It only makes the noise under acceleration for the first few minutes. Originally I thought valves or cam chain tensioner, but now I'm...

  14. Driving lights for a 2014 SE TSI

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I have looked and it seems like there is no good option for driving or fog lights for this thing. The headlights are barely adequate and I would like to put some more light up front. I live in the country, like driving at night, and don't want to be the guy that kills Bambi's mother. I can get...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    We've all had situations where we couldn't avoid hitting something due to speed, safety comfort (risk taking), etc. About two weeks ago, driving on a Sunday afternoon (w/ sun at bad angle), guard rail on the right, semi-truck in passing lane, running 60-65...I first noticed the object about 1/4...

  17. Scraping sounds from brakes while driving

    B5 Garage
    Got a very neglected Passat, rusting outside with no driving for three or more years... I knew sooner or later I will need to do brakes, because rotors looked overgrown with rust and I had to un-stuck after finally starting the car first time. I was hoping the pads will make rotors more shinny...
