Yeah I have a 99 B5 V6 Passat and it has (to say the least) a few bugs. But I'm not sure what it is. When I got the car it didn't start at all I soon noticed the starter was bad and changed it and the car ran fine. Now a few months later after the rebuilt starter was put in I noticed when I start it the connection is poor at best. Sometimes it starts perfectly and sometimes it just makes a click noise and I would have retry until it starts (around 10-20 times) aside from just the starter being bad the oil consumption is off the charts I only use synthetic and always keep an eye for leaks but nothing it doesn't leak I worried where this oil is going exactly. Also the tranny mount is also whack. Not sure if this a normal thing with Passats but that is the least of my problems if the car won't start properly. To add on top of all those problems the airbag light is on and I plan on getting the computer reset and seeing if that would fix that problem but I'm not so sure about it. So I'm really confused weather I should waste a ton of cash on it to fix the problems or just sell it and look for a different car.
