    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Innocent victim of a T-boning. It's difficult to see in the photo, but the rear left wheel is significantly bent in at the top -- I'm not quite sure what has been bent, but something has, and the rear door is pretty well jammed shut. Nobody is injured. No airbags deployed. What's the...
  6. Pot Hole = TOTALED 2000 GLX 4Motion!!! Now What?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I am still in disbelief. My hubby ran over a pot hole and it blew out two tires, bent one of the rims and caused a side air bag to deploy! The adjuster said that the car is totaled! He is estimating that we'll get around $3,000 which seems too low to me. Has anyone been through this? I consider...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So, it happened, my car died. This is my second Passat and it's died on me now for the first and only time. It overheated today and the heads are bent, oil in the coolant etc. After a 3-hour ordeal a mechanic advised me to total it and take what I can get. Should I sell it to a scrap yard...

    This was my 2000 GLS 2.8L 5-speed. I never thought about it in terms of safety but I found out quickly enough. I escaped with only two broken legs and some glass in my arm, but today with the help of titanium rods I'm already driving another manual B5 :thumbup:
  15. Frightening Totaled Passat

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello all, I first joined here in July 2008 when I got my first car, a 1999 Candy White V6 5MT. On Wednesday morning on my way to class, I put it into a guardrail at about 30-35 MPH and it's totaled. (Waiting on insurance to clarify but as you can see from the pictures -> Photo Album - Imgur...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Okay PW. My 2001 V6 b5 with 90K got rear ended this Thursday. Exactly 1 week after I paid to get my blauparts timing belt kit installed. This was my first VW and I love it. The adjuster will be looking at it this week and I expect it will be declared a total loss. Damage includes the bumper...
