  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I started a thread about my misadventures with a broken cam chain tensioner on the passenger side. The result of the replacement of the CCT was that the car is misfiring on all passenger bank cylinders only. Drivers side is fine even though I changed the pads on that side (meaning I took the...

    I'm hoping this post is in the right place. I just bought a 2013 SE with 9k miles and am thinking about buying a VW extended service plan. Any recommendations re: which dealerships offer the best prices? FWIW, I lucked out with a Toyota extended plan which cost $1300 and paid the entire $3,000...

    So now that I've overcome my dilemma on whether I should keep my 2001.5 Passat 5-speed with 143,000k or sell it, (I'm keeping it!), what potential repairs should I keep in mind or be ready for at that kind of mileage? I plan on driving this car into the ground so I will be tackling each issue...

    I have an idea and feedback is welcome. About 50k miles ago, I broke the plastic pipe that went from the pump to the exhaust and replaced it with a length of 3/4" heater hose.

    What's the general consensus on these extra protection plans, or is there one? What did you choose, why, and what has been your experience? As a general rule I don't buy the extra insurance on products, like electronics, and only bought one on a set of tires once and never used it.

    Got rear ended the other day and apparently I didn't plan it well. The person who hit me was insured by the same company as the last one that rear ended me. The adjuster noticed that the last repair wasn't completed, so I only got reimbursed for a patch and paint, not a bumper skin...

    I just had an oil pump put in my 1.8 at a cost of $800 and the dealer told me that the insurance plan I had doesn't pay the tax so on top of the $100 deductable they added on about $65 in tax. Is this right?
