Probably sold my 1.8t b5.5, cause i need. More fuel efficient vehicle since my job relocate me farther away. Been looking at mk4tdi wagon and came across a 2004 passat wagon tdi with 185000mi. Sone searching on the web and found that they have balance shaft and transmission issue. My plan is to keep the car another 4-5 years so she have to give me at least 60-70k miles without much trouble. Are they really that bad???
