    I have a stock Volkswagen Passat (b6), I got it a few weeks ago and the only thing I have done so far is add 35% tints all around. I was thinking about getting some lowering springs on it and I still have the factory warranty on the car. I was wondering if I lowered the car, would that void my...

    Hey Everyone. We have a B5.5 V6 5 speed. My dad received a letter from I guess a 3rd party warranty program confirming that our passat is not under warranty anymore. We've been looking into it, due that our passat needs a water pump and axles etc. I thought I would run it past everyone here on...

    I haven't checked into it but what responsives have been given regarding lowering while under warrenty? I was thinking of just having them install the OEM sport springs (if they still cover) but I know the labor charge will be a rip. I'm fine with them not covering involved parts if they would...

    Took my 98 1.8T wagon to the dealer to show him rust around the rear window of the hatch. They denied it. I checked the manuel and it has a 11 year warrenty on rust. The catch seemed to be it has to be perforated. Right now my rust shows through the paint and new bubbles are forming. Its real...

    Hello everyone! Here is my little problem. I would like to say possibly up until tomorrow I will like my local dealership. Let me explain, today while I was walking to my car I had noticed that my window brake and tailights were on. First thought that came to my head is, "I left me lights on!"...

    So I realized awhile ago that my wastegate actuator rod was inevitably failing, due to the "rattling" sound during deceleration. I have a 99 1.8t with about 79k miles on it. Im the second owner. My question is whether this would be covered under warrenty. I know that you can get the...

    Has anyone had any luck having the dealer replace a torn CV boot under the 100k drivetrain warrenty? 2000 v6 5speed The Owner's Manual under Coverage, paragraph titled Drivetrain say's, "differential and all internal parts, drive shafts, and constant velocity (CV) joints." What's the dealer...

    So heres one for the people with warrenty knowledge... 1) if you get your timing belt checked at the recommended intervrals by an indi shop, lets say east coast for example, and the timing belt goes causing horrific damage, would vw's warrenty still cover it? and 2) if you have an extended...
