    Hello Passat World. I just bought a 2004 Passat with the 1.8T engine. It seems fitting that I make an account here to join the community of Passat owners. The car is very fun to drive, I must say. It replaces my 1995 Mercedes E320, which was unfortunately totaled by an old woman. So, right...

    This is my 10th VW/Audi. A 2007 Passat Wagon with 91K. One owner who did all service and maintenance religiously. Bought from my VW dealer. Looking for advice on which maintenance items I should do immediately.

    I want to give feedback on B5.5 Wagon tail lights purchased from Latvia via eBay but cannot post in the proper forum. Hopefully this 2nd new thread in this section will allow me to do it.

    I had a 2008 Passat 2.0T Komfort and it ended up bending all the valves 2 weeks ago. I had already dumped 5k in repairs over the past few years and I was done dealing with it. I loved the car outside of the "not running" part. I was really sad to see it taken away on a flat bed, something about...

    We have been enjoying this car for a couple of months now and I'm trying to look into fixing some of the issues that we've come up with. Looking forward to learning more!

    Hey Guys, Has anyone in Australia bought parts from Blauparts for their Passat? I will be doing a timing belt on my 2002 Passat and found they have a very comprehensive kit that includes far more than any locally purchased kit. VW Passat Timing Belt - 2.8L VW Passat Timing Belt Kit - 30V Enha...

    I purchased a replacement key fob from a company that seems to be reputable. Had a mobile guy come out and he cut the key and programmed it to start the car. All went well, but when he tried to program the keyless entry the new remote will not program. I have only one master key and that does...

    Hello to the CC crowd. I have been coming to this site for over a year now. Most of it was for help getting a oil pressure problem solved on my 2001 Passat V-6, 4mo wagon. (We still own that car and it is running fantastic) I find this site to be one fantastic place. So I thought I'd let the...

    Just getting this out of the way. Will have questions along the way I am sure. Have a 2002 Jetta TDI at the moment and love it, but at over 30mpg the 1.8 Passat is not a bad choice. The extra room isn't bad either. By the way, what oil should I use??? Just kidding. ;) I am familiar with the...

    There are LOTS of non-OEM lip wings on eBay.....they generally come from Taiwan, they are painted, and they are only $30-$40....much less expensive that the OEM ones.... The pictures look good, but pictures can be deceiving. And I wonder how good do they really look and how well do they...

    Hello audiophiles!! I did a search and was unable to find an answer to my question. So I recently purchased a 2001.5 Passat with Monsoon OEM setup (6 cd changer and amp) and I've run into a little dilemma with the head unit. It currently has a crappy "Dual" aftermarket radio installed as shown...

    I am new to the VW Passat, just purchasing it yesterday. She runs great, with the exception of an issue I had in another post. This post is regarding an oil leak I have that I originally thought was coming from the valve cover. Well, after pressure washing the engine, top to bottom, I thought...

    Just purchased a Chinese stereo off eBay. Price was right but suspect quality will be average at best. In life I have found you usually get what you pay for. Anyone out there have some reviews. Brand is Ouka and comes with DVD, GPS, 7inch screen, Bluetooth, runs windows ce 6.0.

    If so, how do you like them. The price surely is RIGHT! I was considering the Alzor 608 Omanyt Replicas for my b5, currently have an older 17" ROH set that came with my previous passat. I'm really inbetween something flat 10spoke like these, or even a wider 5 spoke. Any alternative ideas...

    I'm looking to purchased a used Passat. I'm looking at 2008 and newer models as I've heard that they have some improvements from earlier models. One I'm going to be looking at is 2008 2.0T with the FSI engine. I'm somewhat concerned with the problems with oil consumption and the cam follower...

    WOW! I learned so much about my car in just a few weeks of reading/searching. I had no idea about all the "little" things that can make a big difference in performance and reliability (like the oil specs). Anyway, I got a 2004 Passat GLS 1.8T manual transmission with 112k miles on it. I had...

    I will be taking delivery the last week of September according to the dealer. Sort of hope its sooner, but whatever. Very excited. Paid $200 over invoice. Black on Black 6MT. I had been back and forth with the dealer since the first week in August and I guess persistence and patience paid off...
