    Hey y’all, So my car has developed a bigger vibration at highway speeds that goes away when I’m under 50-60 mph. It also seems to go away when i push on the brakes. Any idea what this could be?

    I recently hit a pot hole with my passenger side rear tire whilst trying to avoid it at the last second on the highway. Needless to say I hit it at about 40 mph. Not good. After hitting the pot hole I noticed rear end vibrations at both low speeds all the way up to 75 mph (I did not want to push...

Itll shake the glasses off your face. i have a new bearing on the right side and new axles on both sides and new upper control arms on the right as well as both tie rod ends being new. car...

    I have a pretty oddball, slightly concerning problem with my '03 V6 Passat, Tip, but not AWD... anytime i try and "roll-through" a stop sign, the transmission shifts HARD when I mash the accelerator coming out of the rolling stop. IE, I'll let off the gas and creep, but not come to a full...

    Transmission and/or Clutch issues at ATF 5 speeds of WV Passat 1.9TDI 2004 Hi everyone, I'm the happy owner of a WV Passat 1.9 TDI from 2004 of 136 bhp with close to 100k mileages (genuine). I only changed the cam belt and the rear break pads - expected weariness for this mileage and car age...

    2008 Passat Komfort wagon: I had the front tires replaced last week and now there is a creaking sound when steering left or right at low speeds (say up to 15mph). Seems to go away above there. Temporary due to better tread now or something sinister? Thanks.

    I recently purchased a 2003 Passat AWM 1.8T. On my first freeway, 85 mph, trip the car swayed back and forth in a weird front to back way. I immediately knew it needed new struts. Sure enough at 133k miles still original OEM. The front left and right rear were completely shot. This explained my...

    Howdy, I own a 93k b5.5 AWM. Recently the car has been giving me issues starting, it takes 2-3 cranks and a bit of sweet talk to turn her on. Accompanying that symptom is a loss of power at ~4k rpm @ hwy speed. If I push the pedal past what I've been steady at, she seems to give me the...

    So for awhile (probably 2 months or so) my car has been making an odd clunking noise on the driver side. It only really happens at low speed. I assumed it was a bad strut mount (since I didn't replace them when I put my Koni's in). Well this weekend I tore everything out and noticed that the...

    I have a 2002 2.8 4motion with 134,000 miles. The coldest night -10f the car had to be towed home with no or very limited movement in any gear. To me it seemed like it was very low on fluid. I drained and pulled the pan. The fluid level was not low and not burned. I dought it was ever changed...

    I saw some similar posts but they didnt seem exactly the same (no CEL coming on) so thought to post it here in its own thread: We have a 1999 4 cylinder passat wagon with turbo (automatic tranny) that is having some serious issues. Upon acceleration from a standstill, the car just lurches...

    I have a 2000 VW Passat V6 2.8L. I'm looking to change out the low pressure switch because the oil pressure light with the stop engine keeps flashing. This only happens when going below 40. I can sit in the Garage and run at any RPM with no posts. I wanted to inspect the switch and test it...

    2002 1.8T AWM FWD 137K. White smoke from exhaust at highway speeds. Oil consumption 0.6 Qt per 1000mi. Gurgling sound from dash on acceleration when cold engine, combined with white smoke, I am thinking coolant is getting mixed with gas. Is it VCG or something else?

    I have a '98 Passat two wheel drive. I have done a search and found a lot of posts about this issue, but they do not address the specifics of my car as as I see them. I noticed that when I turned sharply at low speeds I felt a sort-of left to right pusing of the steering wheel. Did not happen...

    I have a 2007 Passat 2.0T with 84,xxx miles on it. When I am on the highway, maintaining constant speed (60+ MPH), and accelerate to pass, my car jerks. It isn't while downshifting, so I would speculate that it has nothing to do with the transmission. I took it to my dealership and they told me...
