    Hi, wonder how many people are like me. I loved my 1.8t Passat and its great features compared to other cars I could have bought in 2002...However I wish I got rid of it before it started to have high priced repairs constantly...then you find out how vw makes repairs difficult and expensive. I...

    On a recent trip to the Toy Store for Men, Harbor Freight, I was on a quest to obtain a nice 3/8" ratchet, as my new chariot, a '17 CR-V, uses 10mm bolts for nearly everything, and a 1/2" drive is overkill for that, if I even had a 1/2" 10mm, which I don't. Like many DIYers my only 3/8"...

    Hey folks, Got some great advice a couple of years ago on a 1.8 that I ultimately ended up (wisely) passing on thanks to advice on here, now I'm back to see what people think on my present opportunity. This is an automatic for the ex so she can have an easier time getting my son around and I...

    I've been on the prowl for 4 years. Came close to trapping a few, but was ultimately denied in the end each time, almost to the point of loosing faith in my quest. But today I'm here to tell you I finally captured the beast. And yes it really does exist. Well, I gotta go. I'll let the avid...

    New to posting but I've been using this forum since about 2006, as soon as my 2003 Passat Wagon 1.8T got old in a hurry. So now with a new discovery, its time for me to post and help out the community. -Rob

    15 years ago, this B5.5 came into our lives from a dealership in Vienna and has traveled through 25 states and 2 countries. It's been a faithful companion and hopefully will be for years to come! I have driven most everything that could be classified as a car and having experienced such a...

    I just replaced my battery on my 2001 Passat. It replaced a battery that I bought 9 years ago from the dealership, so guess where I bought this battery from? I cant believe I got 9 years out of this battery in Minneosta. The batter from the dealership was pPricy at $138.00, but for 9 years I...

    I just did my front brakes for the first time after 12 years and 149k. Nothing of note other than the caliper pins were bone dry. You'd never be able to tell they had grease at all. Needless to say, I ran them in and out of the bushings a bunch to spread the new grease around. I think I...

    So here I am as a Noob Tube poster... I have a several year history of owning VWs...fell in love with them circa 2011 when I bought my first one. Anyway, I needed a daily/winter car, so I bought my first Passat knowing nothing about them. My first Passat was a 2001 pre-facelift B5 4motion sedan...

    Having owned this Passat since February 2004, I have not needed to change any bulbs on the car, ever. I have however replaced the xenon bulbs a year ago, but the the original bulbs were still in quite good condition (no reddish hue, the sign of bulb going out). Anyway, now, today is the day that...
