    Hi, At above 70mph, i feel passat 2017 R line model is wobbly, it is moving out of my lane very easily. Is it normal since passat steering is sharp and sensitive ? Suggestions and experience please.

    I recently purchased a 2003 Passat AWM 1.8T. On my first freeway, 85 mph, trip the car swayed back and forth in a weird front to back way. I immediately knew it needed new struts. Sure enough at 133k miles still original OEM. The front left and right rear were completely shot. This explained my...

    I recently bought a 2001.5 1.8T which had 123K on the odometer. I replaced all of the PCV system with new parts since I was getting a lot of fumes inside of the passenger compartment. I replaced the vacuum lines and the diverter valve with the 710N. The PO had replaced the expansion tank and...

    While driving the car shut off an would not start again. The car just makes a monotone sound when trying to start. Took the battery to Autozone and they said it had a low charge but were able to charge it. ICM seems to be ok. Can't really see the tb because of the two hoses in front of it. But...

    I had my 04 V6 FWD stall today on the freeway. It started missing a little bit then started running real bad it acted like I was running out of gas so I proceeded to an exit where it died completely. I tried restarting and it sounded like it was out of gas. (I Refilled about 50 miles back) I sat...

    03/V6-- Going up steep and long freeway hills (like on the 5 in between LA and SF) , when really hot (90/95+) and AC on, sometimes causes the heat gauge to start going up to one notch below red. Turning off AC solves the problem. There are signs on that freeway telling people to do so (turn AC...

    99 1.8t manual controls. I took it into a shop and had it evacuated and recharged. it worked just fine while parked at the shop but when I hop on the freeway the air is not as cold. It's still a little cool but not enough to cool the car off. Any ideas ?

    2001.5 V6 4Motion GLX I just took a 350 mile roadtrip where I used the cruise control quite a bit. On the trip I noticed that when the car was under a constant velocity the car was fairly quiet, but if I ever had to turn off the CC, or take my foot off the pedal to allow the car to coast to...

    Just died. No weird sound or sputtering and won't restart. Timing belt replaced 6K miles ago. It turns over fine and sounds like a normal engine cranking(not the fast broken TB sound). Also when the engine turns over I can hear the fuel pump running with my ear toward spare tire well. No blown...
