    This is my second VW, when I was young the first car I ever owned was a Jetta. I hardly did anything and it ran for years. Now that I’m older and have had a couple of cars I’ve returned to VW and I’m ready to take good care of my Passat.

    Hello, all! I'm samurai65. I just bought a 2003 Passat GLS with the 1.8T engine. It was well-cared for mechanically. I am typically a Japanese fan (nineties Mitsubishi, mainly). I just sold my 1992 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 (insanely fast car, for those that don't know), but I really enjoy this...

    I've spent hours reading the many threads concerning the lack of cabin heat on a b5. Time to start joining the conversation. I wonder if there is a BEST thread concerning heat that I should start with? I've flushed the coolant to rule out a clogged heater core, and I've pulled a few codes...

    Hi Guys, This is the great forum that I have learned a lot from you guys. However, without a good knowledge of the automobile, sometimes, it is hard for me to understand/follow some threads. So, how to start to learn about the car? I do not expect myself to become an expert as most of you...

    General interest question for the DIY mechanics - at age 40 I'm just starting to learn how to work on my car. For those of you who've been at this a while longer, I'm curious to know: What motivated you? How did you get started? What did you find most helpful as you were learning and...
