    I recieved a 2002 Passat Four Motion GLS, Wagon, with the 6 cyl, 2.8L motor, a couple years back. The car itself looks as though it's in really nice shape. Although looks can be decieving.

    Hello all! Saturday, I wrecked my 2006 Nissan Sentra, and the insurance check was miniscule. So, on Thursday I'm picking up a 2001 Passat GLX (127k on the odometer) from a local lot. It was $4,700, and I was worried about having to do an immediate TB service, but I did some checking today and...
