    Looking at maybe selling our minivan for a 2015 Passat V6 SEL. Supposedly brand new in a dealer showroom. So I have a few questions: 1) How much should I pay for it? 2) What should I look for in terms of issues for a car sitting in a showroom or lot for 2 years? 3) Would you do it? 4) Should I...

    2005 Passat Wagon V6 GLX. I've had this happen to me twice now. My car will sit in the garage for 3 or 4 days without being driven. I'll pull it out in the morning and the check engine light will come on(solid, not blinking) and it will idle mildly roughly. This rough idling improves with...

    Fresh plugs in motor. Hard to start after the car has been sitting for a while. Once it cranks it runs rough for a min or so and then it clears up. Strong gas smell in the exhaust while it is running rough. Check engine light flashes while it is running rough. Is it possible that a coil can act...

    In most cars, there are a set of rubber bumpers that you can adjust to change the clearance of the hood, but on my Passat, all I see are the two larger rubber squares that the hood I guess rests on. Is there any way to adjust the hood so that it sits flush? I have no idea if the car was ever...

    Never really pulled the trigger on using them, but I've had them for quite some time. They would need taller tires installed (45's) and the current ones to be sold (40 sidewall). They are 17" Work wheels, forged I believe and polished like a mirror. I may sell them. My only other choice in...

    Hi, I've just inherited a 2000 V6 passat that has been parked for the past 4 years. I'm somewhat mechanical skilled (I've replaced brakes, calipers, oil, spark plugs, cleaned a carb in other cars before), but I've never worked on anything as "modern" as the passat. I figure I would start by...
