    Hello all! VW virgin here and I need an opinion from long time users. Just got a 2013 Passat 2.5L S about a month ago. Got it used with about 10,000 miles on it and last week the throttle body died on my way to work and left me high and dry. I had it towed to the dealer who fixed it for free...

    About a year ago, I picked up an 02 Passat that ran and drove, but had a long list of issues. Almost all of the useful info that I got off the web to fix it, came from here.

    I acquired a '96 Passat TDI almost two weeks ago. There are a few niggling issues I hope someone can give me a pointer in the right direction for resolving them. I have tried searching for resolutions for these issues. When it comes to things mechanical, I have ten thumbs. 1) The owner's...

    So, as a relatively long-time member of PW, I've read the many horror stories of water ingress. Well, I went outside this morning, looked at my windows, and there was condensation on the inside. :icon_eek: I found the backseat driver's side to be SOAKING WET. The backseat passenger's side...
