  1. Farewell and Thanks

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Traded in my '00 V6 Passat 5 spd with 200k miles last week for a '16 Sportwagen Limited Edition. Had the Passat for 11 years and 130k miles which would not have happened without the tremendous input and advice I received from probably 100's of PW members on a multitude of repairs I did myself...
  2. Farewell Passat

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was planning on getting my front control arms and brake hoses replaced last week. I was passing by a local Subaru dealer where more than a few of my family members and friends bought cars from. Don't know why, but I turned into the dealership. I ended up trading the Passat in on a very gently...
  3. Farewell, Passat ownership!

    Anything Auto
    It is a bitter sweet day for me. I traded in my 98 Passat 1.8T 5M today after 11 years of ownership. She's made me smile, she's made me pull my hair out, and almost break a toe when I kicked her tires (don't do that, they're pretty solid). But all journeys must come to an end, and I'm leaving...
  4. Farewell Petra and Club B5/Passatworld

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I had been looking around for a replacement wagon for Petra for about 8-12 months when I came across a 2004 Audi Allroad with only 78 000km (~45 000 miles) in October. Petra had been racking up miles slowly and was really getting past the point where I usually sell my cars and buy another one...
  5. A somewhat reluctant farewell

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Well, I've finally grown tired of the constant repairs I'm needing to make on my beloved Passat, so I went out and bought a Kia Rio 5 yesterday (I know, I know, won't be nearly as fun :cry: ). So, anyone know a good forum for Rios? It's loaded, but of course lacking in power, so y'know, might...
  6. To PassatWorld B5 forum memebers: Thanks and Farewell !!!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi folks, and thanks.... I've been a PassatWorld member since 2006, and yesterday I let go of my 2002 1.8T wagon in a trade for a different make. During this time I have literally saved thousands of dollars with the helpful advice from post searches and my own requests for help. There was...
  7. Farewell VW - March 2001 to May 2013 - and Thank You Clubb5

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I posted a similar posting over at VWvortex.com. But it was clubb5.com that came first for me, so I wanted to customize this a little from that posting. In November of 2000, I joined VWVortex around the same time that I joined Clubb5 as I became interested in buying my first VW. Probably, few...
  8. Farewell!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Tomorrow I am trading in my B5 for a 2013 Passat. I will be leaving the B5 club, and joining the newer breed of VW. I have loved all the knowledge on this forum. I will still be on here lending what I have learned along the way. Oh yeah, I will have some B5 parts for sale on here maybe...
  9. Farewell Passatworld, you've helped me tons

    Anything Auto
    I don't post here anymore, haven't in months really, but I still lurk pretty often for guides on how to fix my passat. It may be extremely nicely kept in and out, but as I fix one thing, the other gets mest up and it's even more money that time. It's time to say bye to my b5.5 passat I've had...
  10. Farewell to the 1.8 T

    Volkswagen Passat CC Discussion
    I purchased a 2000 Passat GLS 1.8 Turbo, automatic, leather, heated seats, etc as my daughter's first car in 2008. We all loved driving it and I was really happy about all of the safety features. +1 for a Dad concerned about his daughter and with only 112K on the vehicle, I thought we'd have...
  11. A proper farewell to my Passat

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I know that I don't know anyone on here because I never post, but I wanted to put this out there... A month ago my beloved 49,000 mile DEAD MINT 2002 Passat GLX wagon was involved in a hit and run accident and was totaled. Fortunately it was parked overnight and no one was in the car at the...

  13. Farewell to a former B5.5'er

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    We lost another Passat owner to the Audi world, Motolegends has moved on. I took a 3 hour trip to pick up some left over parts from Jeff over the weekend and what a wealth of knowledge this guy has on Passats. 30 years of being around German engineering and it shows. He took the time to go a...
  14. Farewell, friends: my B5 is gone!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    After 10 years and 8 months of driving the car since new, I have sold my 2000 Passat! After owning various cars over the last 30 years, I never had one for nearly that long, and it was definitely the best car I've owned to date! 160,000+ miles. Like a member of the family! But, the wife and I...
  15. This is my farewell; Thanks for all the help and comradery!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I bought my 2001.5 GLX 2 1/2 years ago, the 5th VW I've owned since I got my license. This car has been so much fun to own, and despite having 140k on the clock now, it still gets confused for a brand new car, and drives like a dream. Despite all this, I've had my fair share of issues...
  16. Farewell, you all have saved me mucho $$$

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

  17. Farewell

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Just wanted to say thanks for the help over the last 6 years. Just traded in my 01 Passat. Repairs were stacking up and I couldn't face another winter with no (or very little) heat. Just picked up a CPO '06 Acura MDX with 20K for a steal. Mileage not a whole lot worse than the v6 4mo I am...
  18. Farewell

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Well, my wife and I have officially gotten out of the VW world. We just bought her a 2006 Subaru Outback 2.5i. We love it so far. Her Passat had turned out to be a lemon. In about a year and a half, we had three (3!!!) repair jobs that cost $1000 each. And these German auto parts are never...
  19. Farewell PassatWorld... and Thanks.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The company that I work for has just bougth me a new Acura TL - Type S. So, I've just sold my beloved Passat. I just wanted to say thanks to the PassatWorld Moderators, as well as Thanasi, for putting together such an excellent website. These forums have been a wealth of information, as well...
  20. Farewell B5.5... Farewell PassatWorld!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    As many of you know I totaled by "beloved" B5.5 Passat about a month ago...:cry: I've had some mechanical problems for about the past 4 or 5 months, that I have had some difficulty remedying. Mostly do to mechanic misdiagnosis, but some due to myself trying to save a buck or two. Anyhow, the...
