    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2003 GLX 151k Headed to 200K! The wife had been shopping for a new car and just didn't find anything she liked as much as her passat. So at 151k, it got its second timing service. Looking back, the car has been pretty solid. Of course there have been a few issues but all in all, it has been...

    Classified Archive
    So after a short 11 months of having my 99' V6, and thousands of dollars later, the smartest thing to do is take it to the junkyard. 197,000+ miles with a huge oil leak in the engine and smoke coming out of the calipers pretty much set me off that it was time to say goodbye. (Mind you I put...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
