    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Our son drove in from the Phoenix area for Thanksgiving, in the old '98 wagon which had a dripping water pump. He had an Air Force buddy with him, so I didn't feel right pushing too much to start on the car. Then another Air Force guy from their basic training days shows up and stayed over...
