    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've been getting abs codes recently, and with the help of forum member AndreasPassat I have a fault code readout. Thanks Dave! He suggested I post it here for direction on where to go next. I know the car got a new instrument cluster before I got it, and one line talks about a bad connection...

    Had a coupon for a free tire rotation and alignment check. The car goes straight down the road, brakes straight and the tires have no abnormal wear. The shop said the alignment was out a bit, but that on my 2002 4motion wagon they would need to order adjustable arms to get the camber adjustments...

    Hi, I just bought a 2003 Passat 177K and a AMW 1.8T and the owner said he bought it new and all the service was done at the dealer he bought it from. I know I can pay like $50.00 or something to Carfax for a report but does anybody have any other (free) way of getting one? Kaptrob.

    Does anybody have a way to check a vehicle history? I know I can pay something like $50.00 for one but some people can look up unlimited amount of vehicles on their account. I don't know if this would be a problem or not. I just picked up a 2003 Passat 177K with the 1.8t AWM motor and...

    After getting my car back from the body shop and clearing all of the low voltage codes in every module, these two are the ones that came up that I'm not sure what they're for. I've got some others for speakers that are out and the DV solenoid that isn't being used anymore, and I currently have...

    I finally convinced my wife to get rid of our frigging Prius which she only loved because of the gas mileage and the statement it made on the road. A real thrill every time we pulled out into traffic getting it up to speed (NOT). Every time I drove or rode in it, I felt there was a total...

    I have a flex pipe leak and I found a reputable mechanic that has lots of experience with VWs. From reading on here I wanted to get just the flex welded in. He told me that in the past he has tried welding in flex pipes on VAG cars and that it is not possible to use a short enough pipe as the...

    Just looked at my posting history - rather dismal something like 48 posts since 2004 when I first joined. I think it has been at least 6 months since since have been to Clubb5 – ok so just using Clubb5 gives some slight history. So it is the wife’s car and very few mods have been made – put on...

    Changed out my driver's side axle today, for the first time. The info on this website was indispensable! Some additional points: Did NOT have to remove the pinch bolt and disconnect the upper control arms. Before jacking up the driver's wheel, I used the massive 3/4" breaker bar and socket...

    Hope this isn't a repost. The fifth-generation (1996-2005) Volkswagen Passat was always a bit of a problem child for the German automakers and its vehicle owners. While it was both handsome and a pleasure to drive, it was afflicted by numerous mechanical maladies, including engine sludge and...

    Consumer Reports' reliability rankings by brand - Yahoo! Finance I hadn't ever looked at this. All German brands except Porsche:thumbup: ranked below 20! Frankly surprised that VW was ahead of Audi; BMW; Mercedes BTW are Audi and BMW upkeep after 50K higher than a Passat? Perhaps VW of...
