    So I hop in my car today for that joyous Friday afternoon drive home, and my front passengers side door window was going up and down at will the whole way home. Possessed? Maybe, but not likely. :hmmm: This has never happened to me before. How can this happen all of a sudden? And conveniently...

    New to forum. Picked up 2008 Passat with 166K miles. This thing had a multitude of issues. HPFP and follower gone. No Boost. Tons of Oil in intercooler. Fans running on and off when the car is off in 15 degree weather. Hope the pros here can help me get her back on the road!!!

    It's taken me a few years to get back on my feet. Four years cancer free now and almost as long without my own car. Been sharing the hubby's Forte. It's been a great little car and with the previous 2008 Sonata making it 2 for 2 with Hyundai/Kia reliability, I'm thinking of one for myself. First...

    I have 2006 B6 Passat.....I noticed you do not have much mods for the 3.6 FWD. I like the car, I like the power the car has but I was what else you can do to get more power of the car besides basic bolt ons and chip. I do not want boost it, more like naturally aspirated. The R32 has a 3.2 motor...

If I sell all 3 cars I still wouldn't be buying a used car that needs some work & I do not want to finance & have payments. My choice is to sell or part...

    2004 ATQ w/ 99k miles. The display on the cluster will be nice and bright sometimes. Then it will be dim on the upper half. Then it will be dim all around. Today, for the first time since purchase not to long ago, it would not light up AT ALL. This is my g/f's car and she drives our daughter...

    Well I guess I'll begin by saying that this was an unintended exterior detail, I was supposed to be at work yesterday but awoke to find my faithful companion lying dead in the yard which was and still is tough to swallow. I had to keep my mind off of the whole ordeal so I detailed my car. To...

    Hello, I currently have a 2000 passat 1.8t fwd, don't remember engine code, love it but I will be giving it to my family. I'm currently looking into buying any year model of the b5 v6 passat. And I found one in my area and was wondering if anyone that has experience and advice to fill me in...

    ...and here is the result. I freaking love it. It toned down the "LOOK AT ME!" look and got the color scheme back on track (black/tan/chrome). Loving every second of it. And of course, had the parking sensors painted to match. Rear was also done, which I think makes the car look a tad lower...
