    Hi all you VeeDubbers! Thank you for having me. It's great to be back in the seat of a fine German automobile. The last VW I had was in Augsburg, Germany while serving in the U.S. Army there. It was a fine little '57 Bug that took me all over most of Western Europe in 1966-68.:salute: Glad...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This is my first post here. I have been a member since 2007/2008 and have visited the site off and on since that time. My 2003 GLX Passat 4MO Wagon is holding up well, but I am going over most systems and taking care of general (and more major) maintenance tasks. I will be taking care of the 5...

    Thanks for allowing me to be part of this group. I am new to owning a VW. Bought a 2004 Passat last week and so far am very impressed with it, although the rear passenger window lug broke yesterday. Off to VW tomorrow then lol.

    B5 Garage
    I wanted to share my story so far of our VW, a 2004 Passat GLS Variant 1.8T, Silverstone Gray with a rusty passenger front door. We ended up with our Passat as the best choice in a narrow field of cars in our price range at income tax refund time. Purchased at a used car dealer with 124,232...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    After 200,000 miles I am intending to pass my wonderful B5 1.8T onto my son. He was 6 when we test drove it together, now 20 and freshman in college. We have both loved the car and still do. It will be "The best present I ever had" for him :-) Onward now for me and the new passat is too big...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello! I will preface this by saying that I have been reading this forum for about a year and just recently registered. I bought a 2001 Passat wagon (B5.5) last year and didn't know squat about it. The car is 100% stock. It looked to be in great shape. It had 105,000 miles on the odometer...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I posted a similar posting over at But it was that came first for me, so I wanted to customize this a little from that posting. In November of 2000, I joined VWVortex around the same time that I joined Clubb5 as I became interested in buying my first VW. Probably, few...

    Don't know if this is frowned upon, but I wanted to publicly thank Gene 1.8T. I was in need of a shifter handle and with a couple short PMs and a couple days Gene was able to help me out. I am very greatful for his help, especially during the holidays. Thank you so much Gene! Happy New Year!

    Good job on a great site. I am new to the VW community and so far have had great luck with my early 2001 b5 wagon. I have always been a Toyota guy but I am appreciative of the generous leg room being 6'1". Next up I am going to swap the console for B5.5 with cupholders! Thats my biggest...

    ...who have posted so many great solutions to keeping these fine automobiles running strong for years. I just began doing my own maintenance and repairs on my wife's 2001 Passat 1.8T and I would not have been able to accomplish what I have if it weren't for this forum. I've learned so much...
