  1. Passat was feeling lonely, blew a coil pack while I was gone

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    '06 2.0T 120,000 I finally got that goddamn banjo bolt out and looked inside. The car has been a little rough lately and threw, amongst others, a P2293 code.

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    After 33 years of owning VWs, we thought we'd look at trading our 2013 Passat on a very nice used Audi Q5 the dealer had on the lot. The salesman was very helpful and we were on the verge of making a deal when the Sales Manager stepped in and advised he really didn't want our Passat as they...

  9. Burnt oil smell - GONE!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My aging 2001 1.8T at 126K miles was suffering from persistant oil leakage from the CCT area onto the exhaust, and fumes getting drawn into the heater and stinking up the cabin.
