    When I first started here I had just purchased a 2013 SE, then three years ago, traded it for a 2016 SE. Now three years after that got a 2019 R-Type. Got to admit, they keep getting better and better. Ride difference between all three are #1 = 2019, #2 = 2016 and #3 = 2013.

    Yesterday was day 1 of ownership for a 2000 Passat. 120k miles on the clock and it is a pretty sweet example of a nicely maintained vehicle. With just under 8 hours of ownership it is out of my control now. While you may have thought I sold the car, it merely has passed hands (temporarily) to my...

  12. W8 Variant - Other major repairs to look forward to?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    As is typical for the tiptronic W8, the torque converter crapped out and ran $3300 at the dealer to fix. I also had the main radiator spring a leak to the tune of $1400. I'm also aware of the potential valve issue where an oil galley can get plugged and they have to dismantle the motor to fix...
