    My mechanic just did a timing belt and water pump replacement on my 2000 1.8T. He said that it would be better to replace the serpentine belts for the alternator and a/c because the car is old. I tried looking for OEM belts but couldn't find any. Are 3rd party belts by Dayco or Duralast fine?

    My 08 Passat 2.0T AC works intermittently. On Highway it can be middle of 50s to 70F. On local road it can be 80s, 90s or even above 100 F. I am in Florida.

I don't know if it's caused by incompatibility or just plain bad turbo. When the car is under heavy load...

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a 3rd party manufacturer for a replacement oil pan ('02 V6). All I need is the lower pan and gasket (are there any issues with using the existing sensor?). Thanks!

    Hey Everyone. We have a B5.5 V6 5 speed. My dad received a letter from I guess a 3rd party warranty program confirming that our passat is not under warranty anymore. We've been looking into it, due that our passat needs a water pump and axles etc. I thought I would run it past everyone here on...
