  1. Kids first car! 2000 Passat Im stoked

    New Member Introductions
    My kid got his first car, 2000 Passat, 1.8 tip. I know he feels good about it, he like my Jetta Wagon (1.87 Tip). We are going to be needing a bit of assistance, as it has a reverse issue, as did my Jetta, so I am counting on a few tips here and there to make his first ride not a nightmare. C
