    I bought my :b55: in October after a fun test drive for just over 5k. It seemed like a smoking deal until… …the CLE comes on after a rough cold start so back to the dealer I go. Long story short, the dealer got really ugly the fourth time I took it back. :mad: I never asked for paperwork showing...

    I have just had an interesting and frustrating telephone call with VW of America concerning the recommended oil change interval for the automatic transmission. The car is a 2007 Passat with six speed automatic transmission with manual feature. The car was purchased as a VW certified vehicle and...

    I know this isn't the WTB section, but honestly - does anyone ever look there? The classifieds had nothing too, so here it is. I am helping a neighbor (very underfunded) to fix his Passat following a timing belt break. While we can rebuild his heads no problem, I was wondering if someone might...

    I unfortunitly ran over a speed bump friday night. I may have been going 35mph. It was dark, rainy and did not see hump in road. The huge noise freaked me out! I did not drive car saturday or sunday. I started my car this morning ready for my commute to work and my led display told me to STOP...

    So i was driving down a state road at about 60 mph, when all of a sudden my car jerked twice, and just died. I had jumper cables and attempted to get jumped by another car, and the battery was giving off juice, but the car would not start. Because the car was trying to start up I dont believe my...

    well im at 59k, so I had a 60k interval service. They checked, checked, checked, and checked....everything they should. The only thing they DID do (phsically) was an oil change and a new cabin filter. they said all belts and everything was ok. Cost me $240.00 for them to do a $90 oil change...

    So, I had been in upstate NY for an extended weekend, and was heading back home yesterday. We were on a back road in Pennsylvania, and were stopping at a store before we hit I-81. s I pull in, I notice this huge Dodge grill filling up my rear view mirror. I blow it off as just some jerk...

    Some complete arse ran straight into the back of my B5 this afternoon as was sitting stationary waiting for oncoming traffic to clear before turning into my own driveway. Tis a bit of a mess but hopefully fixable - we'll have to wait & see what damage has been done to the boot/trunk floor &...

    If you go to the German VW site, you can build a new Passat. It's fun, and if you use a web translator you can get past the language barrier. Then comes the 'sticker shock'. A pretty well loaded B6 will run you over 35,000 EUR - which converted to US dollars is over $46,000. Damn! Makes the...

    I'm a college student, and although I would love to add some extra touches to the car, but I simply can't afford to. Anyway, back to the subject, I had an accident on January 27th, and my car just ain't what it used to be. I'll post a bunch of before and after pics. There was also some very...

    I'm in need of the collective CB5 genius on this one. :bow: Doing a search didn't turn anything up here, nor there (Vortex), or anywhere (VAG-COM Yahoo board). I keep getting a sporadic CEL (Emissions Workshop). So I had Autozone do a scan for me andd here's what I got; P1132 - 02...
