    My control arm broke as i was coming off the highway. Luckily nothing bad happened. I was a little shaken up. It was totally my fault for not fixing it right away. I knew it was making sounds for awhile now. I'm a little bummed because the wife does not want me to fix it, and she wants me...

    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 replaced the radiator, engine mount, brake pads, oil changes, ABS module, and a few other things. Awesome forum, but all...
