    I've noticed that it's hard to find trailer hitch mounts in the U.S. for some Passat models. Particularly any of the all-wheel drive models. I have a W8, which is like a unicorn here in the North America. Does anybody know if there's even a hitch mount available for these? Or am I wasting my...

    I purchased a 2004 VW Passat wagon this year that has a trailer hitch receiver installed. How easy (or difficult) would it be to install a pigtail for a trialer I am pulling, without splicing into any existing harnesses. Is there a kit available antwhere? Any guidance is appreciated.

    I put a trailer hitch on my 03 wagon. It works well, now I need to hook up lights I called the nearest dealer (50 miles away, I live out in the boonies) Asked them if they had any sort of kit to plug in trailer lights. Ha - they said I can't pull a trailer with a Passat. I tried to read to him...

    Can anybody throw some light on the issue why there aren't any trailer hitches available in the US for the 3.6L 4 motion Passat wagon? There is a model available from the European Westfalia and I have heard of a Canadian manufacturer but nothing in the US. The Westfalian model is very pricy...

    So, I successfully installed a trailer hitch on my 07 4mo wagon. Now, I need a wiring kit so I can have lights on my trailer. Does anyone have a source for a plug-n-play wiring kit for these cars? Thx!

    You always see these threads, look at the gruesome pictures, then think things like "man, that's horrible," "at least they're alright," but usually it's.. "I'm glad that's not me." This time, it actually was me. Moving home from school last night, I got hit by a tractor trailer. There is this...
