    Hey guys! I've been reading on the forum for a week! First time passat owner! I love VW small liter diesel! I have a few caddys (1.6D, 1.9D, 1.9TD) and I thought an 04' TDI Passat would be a great addition! As I drove the girl home(craigslist), engine code popped up: PO741 This came from my...

    Car 2002 V6 FWD. 52K miles. Car had no pre-existing problems - just did the timing belt because of its age (actually had zero signs of aging), and did the water pump while there (Graf with dry paper gasket. Got everything buttoned up and refilled coolant. Idled car awhile and checked for...

    Hey. 2000 VW Passat ATW B5. I'll start from the beginning.. Awhile ago I busted my mirror switch when I was getting out of my car-clumsy me.. I ordered a new one from ECS and installed it. It worked for a moment then stopped. I checked my windows (because they run on the same fuse) and they...

    I own a 2008 Passat with a 2.0T that has 51K miles. Well anyways I just took it in for scheduled maintenance and got a loaner car (2014 passat) with the 2.5L. WOW what a huge step down from the previous model. The engine seemed very underpowered and rough/unrefined,the interior seemed much...

    The car was very nice, interior was clean, pulled hard, clutch felt good, shifted smooth, and it tracked straight. However, there were a few things that raised some concern with me as I was driving and looking it over in the parking lot. 1) The CEL was on. I didn't have a scanner with me, but...

    Overall car was very nice. :driving: some fading in the leather, but that's to be expected. A few things that we noticed while looking it over that raised a few eyebrows: 1) There was moisture in both the driver's rear taillight (had about an inch of standing water) and the passenger side...
  10. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I liked it. A few things I noticed: The 2010 seemed harsher over rougher road than my 2002. Body roll going around clover leafs seemed about the same between both cars and my 2002 has 150,000 hard miles on it. (The salesman let me and my friend take a test drive on our own so I pushed it...

    I had some extra time and the dealer was close by...that's what I told my 2004 B5.5.:D For the price, it made my old 2004 GlS with leather & sunroof seem like a pos. The DSG is amazing for the shift feel and watching the tach needle move so fast as it shifts. I was impressed by the diesel, no...

    So I was in Pensacola this weekend, and it FLOODED. Insane amounts of water (to me) and I was camping at Fort Pickens... Well the road there was flooded with seawater/ rainwater. Well, it wasn't really deep. Just a lot of it. Well after going through it all, my speedometer/ odometer have been...

    So, my local VW dealer sent me and probably thousands of other people a flyer for a buy-back promo. I bit and went down yesterday to see their inventory. Just for kicks I drove the 2010 Jetta TDI sedan, 6spd manual, and that car is pretty nice. It has some really nice interior features that my...

    This is the tip tranny that got a hole punched in it and I had to drive it home with fluid pouring out. Since I got it back it works fine, better than before, But it's a little louder than before. I can faintly hear gears whirring or something like that. Is it burrs on the gears or some other...

    Last weekend, we cleaned her up and took a 3 hour drive to Chula Vista in San Diego. I just wanted to share some pictures from Dub's by the Bay.

    Driving home from Home Depote, I saw 4 of the new camaros sitting out on this lot looking lonely, so I decided to stop in and say hi to a few. This one, 20" chrome rim with a reflux silver paint job caught my eye. As I was telling the car my history and getting to know her, a sale man walked...

    Last week was a cold morning, went outside and my car wouldn't start. Figured it was a bad battery, bought a new one that night, and was good to go. When I went to start the car that time, the locks cycled a few times, engine clicked a few times, and nothing... lights and AC all worked...
