    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The car is coming up on 100,000 soon and makes me begin to consider an extended warranty but I'd like to hear the opinion of people that are or were actual customers (what company did you use, how were claims, etc.). There's nothing on the car that I couldn't fix myself except the W8 engine...

  12. Toyota Extended Warranty for my new Passat???

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Hi, When I purchased my new 2013 Passat, the dealer was trying to sell me a warranty from Toyota. His reasoning was that it had a longer duration of eight years vs. seven for the Volkswagen. Does anyone have any similar experience or feedback. Do VW dealers honor non-VW warranties? Can I use...

  19. Extended warranty... starting to pay off

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    2009 Passat purchased new in DEC 2008. Well, I know that the odds are in the favor of the warranty companies, but I hate being uncovered. Less than 30 days out of warranty for time (mileage only 31K), the airbag light came on. Bad sensor on passenger side - parts and labor $377; warranty...
