    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I sold my 2002 Passat a few weeks ago. 465,000 miles and still going strong it was time for something different. I found a 2004 V6 4motion wagon with 120K on the clock. Original owners, full service receipts, a well kept car. As luck would have it a week after I bought it we had a snow storm...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I have a 2001 V6 4motion wagon, currently at the shop. I had it towed there because it was leaning to the left. (Don't ask what happened, I honestly have no day it was fine and the next day I went outside to start the car and it was sitting on the fender. I was not the last...

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    A little over 1,000 miles and the car rides great and is very comfortable. I noticed something weird on my radio. Just above the Sirrius Dog Icon on the upper right hand side of the display is the word "CANADIAN". I called VW and Sirrius and neither have hear of that before. Radio/system sounds...

  17. Boost a car battery with a smaller 12v battery (say from a cordless drill)?

    B5 Garage
    Can a car be boosted with a 12V (maybe 14V) battery that is attached to my drill? The car battery has some juice! Not enough to start the car or even play the deck but does power on the interior lights in the car and the remote locking and unlocking of the doors still works. So I was hoping...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Traded in my 08 wagon for a Toyota vensa awd last week, already miss the steering feel from my old car.(the one on Toyota have less feel than those TV game:P) And the v6 did`t feel much powerful then the 2.0t on my passat too. Anyway, thanks for all the help I am getting here on my b5.5 & b6.
  20. Breaks, how long do you have when sensors say to check them?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This is my first Passat, it is an 04 glx with 75,000 miles and I am assuming the breaks are the originals. Last night the check breaks light turned on and I am wondering about how much time do you have before you have to change them (I know it all depends on how much drive)? Thanks in advance...
