Maybe I am crazy? I started the car last night. It was 25 degF, and the wind was pretty whippy. I started the car, put it in reverse and was backing out of a parking space heading toward a big stone wall when I pressed on the pedal and it went to the floor!! I immediately pulled the emergency brake, pressed the brake pedal a few more times, no resistance what-so ever. I popped the hood, the break reservoir looked ok (you can't really see much since it is tucked under the cover for some unknown reason). I got back in the car, pedal is fine! I am thinking that perhaps I missed the pedal all together? There is a large space under it. Has anyone ever experienced this? I have a 2012 Passat SE sedan with a 2.5. And while I am asking....is there a service manual for the B7 series?
