    OK, so I had a meeting last Sunday morning and I promised I would go grocery shopping after, so I took the SUV. I come home to find that my dad had wanted to help me out and change my oil which I mean, gotta love Dad. Only problem was, he ****** my oil filter with a wrench or pair of pliers and...

    Not a Passat topic, so Moderator please move if you like. My son-in-law works for Karma's R&D group and brought this one for us to see. Definitely gets the looks on the road! It also makes a "Tron" electronic motorcycle sound when running at low speeds on the batteries.

    I drive my B5.5 GLX sedan rougher than most people.

Very fast Passat :) 0-60 in 7.13 seconds now and 203HP on...

    Hello everyone, I just joined the forum and could use a little help. I'm looking at potentially purchasing a 1999 Passat. The car is in excellent condition and runs great. It has one issue however. When you start the car all four windows go down halfway, and won't go back up or down. Normally...

    Just back from a stereo upgrade - including amplifier for which the battery was disconnected from long time. Its a 2006 passat b6 and in the instrument cluster it shows that boot lid is open even though the boot is locked. When I close everything and lock it with remote, I no longer hear the...

    So I had a fault for my Thermostat for about a month. Three weeks into having the check engine light on because of the thermostat (kept reseting the faults with Vag-Com) my A/C stopped blowing cold air. So I took it to a shop and they told me most likely why your A/C is not working is because...

    As some of you may know from my other threads (Elusive Oil Leak and CEL Catalytic Converter Below Threshold bank 1), my car is just too much of a money pit. It wasn't taken care of as well as it should have by the previous owner, and it no longer makes sense to throw $700/month into a car that...
