    Just got a letter from VW today for my 2014 Passat. "In cooperation with the US EPA and California Air Resources Board we are informing you of our decision to conduct an emissions service action on certain 2013-2017 model year VW vehicles. The issue is ECM software may cause unintended system...

    After considerable thought, I decided to keep my TDI and have VW do their "fix" instead of taking the buyback. After all, I love my 2012 Passat and couldn't find anything I liked better--not even a newer Passat. At least not for what I'm willing to pay;) Problem is, between December 8, 2017...

    Last week this happened once and it was mild so I thought I was imagining things. Today on the way to work it happened four times. I'd get the Emissions Workshop alert, a flashing Check Engine light, and the car would sort of "stutter" a little and there would be a lack of power. Soon as the...

    Took my B5 in for its every 2 yr emissions inspection, and it failed; which really surprised me because it has been running great. The test is a dyno test, with and OBDII scan too. The engine lite was on, but it has been for years and never cause a failure before. The main problem appears to be...

    So I've got to get my emissions done which means getting rid of my CEL. I plugged my OBD in and only got P0411. Saw it was related to secondary air pump. I unplugged my SAIP awhile ago because it was making a horrible whirling sound and I read on here it isn't necessary. I thought this was good...

    So, long story short, after fixing some other codes/issues I still have P0420 on my 2003 1.8t AWM and need to pass emissions. I will be leaving the country in a few months and getting rid of the car anyway, so I don't want to dump a bunch of money into it and also don't want to buy another car...

    I've always wanted to own a TDI diesel but the price seemed steep and where I live in New England a nice clean used one is rare. Does anyone here think the TDI emissions scandal might result in good deals on them? What are the drawbacks to buying one of the affected cars?

    01 Passat 215000 miles. I did a bunch of repairs to eliminate emissions dash light. How many miles do I have to drive before all codes reset, so I can have the car rechecked for emissions again?? Thanks much

    Does anyone know where this is? It is a green capped schrader valve in my truck and plain as day, but I can't find anything like it on the Passat. Am I jsut overlooking it or do they use another method to connect smoke machines to these? TIA.
