    I am experiencing some vibes from my 03 passat GLS wagon. They seem to start around 30 but can barely be felt, around 50-70 I can feel them a good bit. I've been trying to pin point the different events when I feel them, but it really does seem random. Sometimes they're worse when I accelerate...

    When I have my 2017 1.8T passat car in drive and have brakes on, moving slowly I am hear some slight tap/ knock sound on one side of front of car. When I put it in neutral and let off and reapply brakes I don't hear it, only when in drive. Any ideas?

    I have an odd a/c issue and was wondering if others are seeing the same issue? 2016 1.8 TSI SE. After the car sits over night, the next day the a/c blows ambient temp for 5 minutes or more before blowing cold. The compressor clutch has kicked in during that time period. After it starts...

    I'm hearing a 1/2 second "shht" sound at around 2500-3000 rpms in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gear when accelerating in my 2002 1.8t Passat stickshift. It almost sounds like some kind of valve or gate moving, like a sliding metallic solenoid actuating. During hard acceleration I don't necessarily hear...

    Ok My Passat has developed this odd clicking noise, seems to be coming from behind the intrument cluster area. It is not like a relay noise, but almost like a gear noise. It happens as I drive but disappears when I hit the brakes. It does not seem to be coming from the driveline, but again...

    Today I took my B5.5 for a tire change. Two weeks ago the car was tuned-up and had an oil change. Everything fine, smooth and excellent fuel mileage (30.1 mpg). Suddenly the car began with a misfire when the installer handed me the car. I asked him, WTF?? The obvious answer you might guess "oh...

    Hi all, I signed up to get some idea on what could be the issue with my Passat :( It is a 58 Plate 2.0 Highline with 69k on the clock. This issue has happened a few times now and I am worried it will happen again and again until it is all the time. So what happens is I will be driving along...

    Last week my alarm went off and since I was going to be away for a while, I uncoupled the + terminal on the battery, with the alarm still sounding in my ear, I walked away to get my bus connection. Today, I re-attached the batteries + terminal and since the car was not alarmed, unlocked the...

    Hello guys, I recently (well last May) purchased a 2015 Passat SE. I am wondering if anyone could give me some input on the things I noticed (and let me know if its normal). First off (and this can't be normal) I have been getting a rapid knocking noise when I switch on the vents and or A/C...

    Hi all! I've just bought a (cheap!) 1998 passat 1.8 estate as a towing car. It has an odd problem, that may well be "known": Driving along I can feel the steering pulling against me slightly in "pulses" - It will do it at a standstill so its not a tyre / suspension issue. For example on a...
