    Hey fellas, 2000 Passat wagon. On the highway only I get a vibration. It's the front left corner, and vibrates farily badly. It only vibrates on the highway. If I steer left or right, no change.

The chips were the result of rim being clamped during the tire change. I got Raxles 2 years ago, still driving OK and the...

    2000 2.8 auto. For the last few months, at low highway speeds (usually around 40-45) and only when gently and constantly accelerating on a flat or mild uphill, the car will seem to jolt forward repeatedly, every half second to two seconds. If I give it a little more gas, it kicks down...
