    Hi, I'm coming up on 50,000 miles on my 2012 Passat 5-speed MT. I've been doing the regular 10k service intervals at the dealer (only had the car for two years, bought it used directly from another person), but now the dealer is telling me that the trans fluid should be changed at the 50k...

    About the only remaining issue with my 2005 GL I got last October is a crackly radio. CDs and my IPod sound great, but the radio reception is awful. My mast had rotted insulation, so I replaced that first. It didn't help, so I took it to the VW dealer in town and they diagnosed it as a bad base...

    2004 Passat Wagon GLS with standard stereo with cassette player - not a Monsoon! Yes, I'm the original owner. Kids drive the car now, use stupid tape deck adaptor to use Iphone or Samsung for their music. Oldest son uses CD's on occasion. 5 years ago I installed a Enfig adaptor to play my...

    I have a 2001.5 V6 Passat. The coolant temp switch is failing as I recently changed my thermostat when I did my timing belt but the temp gauge is now fluctuating from 1/4 warm to normal back to 1/4 back to 1/2 (normal) when I am on the highway or sitting in traffic. I know the temp sensor...

    Long story short my mechanic wants to put in new water pump and timing belt. He said the water pump was worn out as it was not turning with the belt when the car was running plus it was loose. The timing belt he said is something you change when you change the water pump plus he said it was...

    Hi, this is my first post in the forum. I have problems with my Passat. Sometimes it will start and will run a few hundred meters, and sometimes 1-2 mil. But before dying, the car runs fine. When the car dies it is as if I turn the car with the key. The starter motor is going around as usual and...
