    So about 3 months ago I had some major issues going on in my life. Lost a car, lost my job, almost lost the roof over my head. A good friend of mine that I worked for for many years bought my a car. This car so happened to be a 2001 VW Passat Wagon. At first I was like "shoot a stationwagon"...

    Hello to all! I purchased a used '06 Passat 3.6 last night in Dallas, and drove it home. It drives/runs beautifully. It has 120,000 miles on it, and I'm sure hoping it will be good for another 100,000. This is my 2nd Passat to own... The first was a '94 B3 which I bought new... loved that...
