    Always a puzzle with these cars. I'm driving along, everything was normal up to this point. Hit the left hand turn signal, and it starts blinking at about twice the normal rate - very noticeable. So, when we get to the parking lot, I jump out and confirm that the left turn signal lights (all...

    Many moons ago, two mostly used doors, driver door and rear right passenger door, on my 2001.5 Passat won't open from outside after unlocking. I had to slightly slam the outside door handle after unlocking each time to open them. I thought the locks were worn out so I replaced them with locks I...

    I searched and didn't see any solid solution to this. This is an '04... You have to slam the trunk hard to get it to latch shut. I feel like I'm going to break something when I do it. And the trunk does not move freely, it takes force to get it open & shut. Any fixes for this?

    This happens infrequently enough it took me a while to characterize it; but it's starting to really worry me. 2000 Passat 1.8T 5-speed auto 191k miles. When put into reverse, the car occasionally starts to move backwards - then bucks like a bronco! - then settles down and reverses normally. It...

    This is my first winter with my 01.5 Passat 1.8t, 59K miles. Seems like when its cold second and third gears shift really hard. There is a definite slam into gear. Only lasts as soon as the car warms a bit, a mile or so, but didn't know if this was a sign. :hmmm: Shifts perfect in auto or...

    Getting H&R springs next week w/ my OEM shocks @ EF1, Fabrizio recommended H&R, I hope it won't slam my car too low, he said it'll be around 1.75" drop in front and 1.5" in back....and the ride should not be bouncy...hope its true.
