  1. Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Hello, everyone, After having my car 140 hp 2.0 tdi passat serviced at a non VW place, the usual oil and filters change, and also the diesel filter change, I experience a loss of power, more outstanding beyond 100 km/h. In fact, in a steep motorway, the foot all down on the accelerator, the car...
  2. Volkswagen Passat CC Discussion
    My 2014 CC runs fine on 87 octane. Why pay more? The owner's manual only RECOMMENDS premium, but does not REQUIRE it.

    The Bentley manual recommends using 5w40 or 10w40 motor oil. I went to my local auto parts store and the only 5w40 oil they sold was Shell Rotella T6 Full Synthetic, so I used that when I changed my oil. At the time I didn't notice the fine print on the label saying it was heavy duty Diesel...

    So does anyone know the last year they offered a Passat with AWD/4-motion? I have it on my 2003, and notice on the VW website it is only offered on the CC. Just wondering when it went away.

    A little while ago, the check engine light came on on my 02 Passat V6. The dealership couldn't find anything wrong with it but they ended up replacing some vacuum line that they said could have been the issue. Coincidently, my dad put regular gas in it around this same time. The check engine...

  8. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Its a 2000 1.8t Recently I had to put in regular for a short while due to fuel prices ( thank god it went down now ) and I noticed it was sort of sluggish off the line. The throttle response was laggy or slow as in I would touch the gas and the car would feel strained. Which really bothered me...

    So I bought 5w40 synth oil and asked to see if they had a filter for my car. The guy tried to upsell me a $18 mobil 1oil filter which is apparently synthetic. He said that is what should be used with synthetic filter. I never heard of it. Anyone recommend the more expensive filter over the...
