I see in Consumer Report they are rating new VW's like the Passat and Golf to have predicted lower reliability. For the 2016's and later is that still true? What are the problems that are causing the low ratings? We have a 2016 Passat and have had zero issues.
I just bought an 01 passat at auction and of course electrical issues are ensuing.. can anyone provide a listing of the fuse number and ampere ratings that correlates to its function? It would be greatly appreciated. The car doesnt have a manual or info about the fuses and what they should be

What would i expect for a stock 1.8t w/ tip to put on a dyno.
Thanks in advance
