    The air conditioning on my B6 Passat never worked as expected ever since I bought it new in 2006. It has a climate control where I set the temperature to LO (lowest setting) and depending on the outside/inside temperature, it can take up to about 30 minutes before I start noticing somewhat...

    Hey guys. Just recently bought a used Passat Wagon, its a 2002 B5.5 1.8T and has 260K km on it. There are a few bugs I am working out, and will likely be asking about those later, but at the moment I wanted to ask what the expected mileage for this beast would be? I am getting about 430km to...

We took our first road trip in the '03 Wagon today, and barely achieved 25mpg. This was in light interstate traffic using cruise control with only two...

    Anybody suprised? :suspicio: In Feb, Phaeton sales were only 152 . if that trend continues, we'd be looking at under 2,000 per year. VW orignially said they expected to sell 5,000 per year then they dropped this to 3,000 just before it seems like they will struggle to sell 2,000...
