    My Indy repair shop I have used exclusively for over 10 years suddenly closed its doors. I have had little luck finding a replacement. One place told me they were not accepting any new "clients." As my 2005 Passat is running cold and I have negligible heat, I'd like to find one soon! Does any...

    Wife hit a snowbank with the passat so she needs a new front bumper skin for her wagon. I live in maine, but if you are willing to ship it we can talk. I will also drive to new hampshire to buy one as well. Any color is fine, and I really just need the painted part anyway. Grilles and such are...

    I just bought a 2003 Passat GLS Wagon with 85,000 miles. It sat in a friend's yard with the windows rolled up and bits of child and dog trash left inside. I never knew you could grow mildew in multiple colors on the same piece of fabric. Lifting the cover off the arm rest in the back seat was an...

    Does anybody recommend a good wrench near Portland, ME? I was going to do my front brakes, but just got a warning from the cops for an expired inspection sticker. We just moved, the 4th is here, and I just don't have time. I like Rennen, but way too pricey. Thanks!

    Hi all. This is Mike from all the way up in Southern Maine. I just recently purchased a used 96 Passat VR6 with 92,500 miles on it (one previous female owner and no mods.) This car was so clean inside and out (and amazingly everything works) that I couldn't pass it up. I'll upload pics...

    I live in Maine where our roads become a lunar surface much of the year. I am considering a suspension upgrade for my 99 1.8T sedan with 75k. I don't drive it hard, no track work, but lots of highway and two-lane commuting. Would like to tighten up the wallowing in the ride and improve the...

    How's it going fellas, Just wondering who's from the Maine area and owns a Passat... they're not that common and I love the fact. I own a '98 GLS turbo and I love every minute behind the wheel. So much in fact that I've put 12k on it since February, but that's a different story altogether. This...
