    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I recently got my CV boot repaired by a local mechanic. This was the second time in 6 months that I have had to take it in. The mechanic messed up my ABS the first time and refused to fix it since he could not scan the car (Aftermarket radio problem) to see where the ABS was acting up. I told...
