    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello all sorry if this has been discussed before but I can't find it if there is one.

  2. Dust Magnet?

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    OK, maybe I am over thinking it a little bit, but is it possible my car has some kind of positive charge in the paint job that makes it a dust magnet? Is my car generating an abnormal amount of static electricity? Is there anything I can do to check this? I have owned dark cars before, I have...
  3. Am I a magnet for bad drivers or something?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This morning, while driving to class, traffic ground to a halt, and the person behind me bumps into me. The next two cars then stopped just in time, till a dumb woman on a cell phone slams into them, pushing them into me. This is followed by another person running into her. In total 6 cars...

  8. Where do Passats rate on the Chick Magnet scale?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    If I was looking for a car with a high chick magnet rating, then I'd have gotten a used Mustang GT for my $12,995, about 15K after interest.

  10. Is it invisible? Is it a magnet?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Seriously, I have never had so many people pull out in front of me in any other car. Between getting tailgated all the time at 80+ on the interstate, and people pulling out directly in front of me in the city, I'm beginning to wonder if there is a "force" with me... It's just odd, no other car...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I just returned to the US from Germany in July and since then, I've ran over a board on the insterstate in West Virginia, another in South Carolina, and a mattress in Missouri. I got my car back Monday afternoon from having all the damage repaired from this. When I got home from work...
