    Hello. I just bought a 2003 Passat GLX Manual for a second car and am loving it. I want to upgrade the in-car entertainment and can't seem to get the radio out with the keys I purchased. I don't care about the radio. Is there an alternate way to remove the radio without causing too much...

    It all started six weeks ago, just a few days before Halloween. I purchased a 1999 Chevy CT 1 ton dually with a 16foot cube on the back. 222k miles on the odometer.

    Hey everyone! I'm Dan. I'm actually a Jeep fellow, but my fiance owns a 2004 Passat 1.8L Turbo and pretty much just gave it to me. She was ready to donate it because she was told it needed a $2,000 repair. She didn't find it suspicious at all that the shop that told her that, also tried to buy...

    Just bought this '97 Passat VR6 today and sincerely hope I'm not irritating more knowledgeable veterans right out of the gates here. Not my intentions for what it's worth. First thing I did was read the page about knowing what you have, but can only assume I have a B4 based on the (1997 was...
