    when I come to a stoplight with my Passat 5.5 V6, there is a vibration that I notice. It's not a terrible vibration but certainly not as quiet and smooth as my wife's Camry. Is there anything that can be done to smooth this condition? Is this just normal for a Passat? I've asked to decrease...

    My 1999-v6 was driving me crazy with an annoying stumble caused when gently accelerating from 1100rpm but would clear itself up, and not be present on a hard-acceleration. I bought this car 2 months ago and since then, I've replaced the TB, computer, battery, fuel filters, wires and plugs in...

    Have been spending a lot of time here searching and searching (and a bit of searching) and have found a few threads with similar issues. Have also been blown away by the knowledge out there and the love for the Passat. The best part for a research junkie like myself has been the insight into...

    My car has started minor hesitation under mild acceleration. Having driven it a couple of times since I can now narrow down the times this happens so was wondering if anyone else has experienced the same (a) car drives fine until it is up to normal operating temperature - no hesitation at all...

    Hey guys I have been a member for a while but don't post often because the Passat is the wife's car and I own a Durango and I am on the Dodoge sites all the time. So don't flame me please. Anyway onto the question. I recently changed the oil in the passat and switched over to the Mobil 1...

    Several times now I've noticed a smell very similar to that of a brake pad burning that happens only once after a cold start, usually after I've gotten on the highway about 5 minutes into my commute. I've only smelled this when the windows are down. Its only a slight smell, but it is...

    New issue: When I'm stopped and the cabin vent fan is on (set to hot, cold or anything in between), I'll get a mild exhaust smell in the cabin. The smell quickly goes away after I start moving again but is noticeable within 10 seconds or so of stopping (long stoplight, drive through, etc.)...

    Maybe I am paranoid but I just had an oil change with a new tech. Afterward I think I am noticing a very mild slight vibration when I drive and when at a stoplight. This may have always been present and maybe I'm being paranoid and focusing too hard on it. I know that when I compare my Passat...
