I have 99 Passat!!! It's been great but wow I'm spent. I'm a single Mom and I hate going to the dealership or any shops. I feel they take advantage of me. I as charged almost 40 bucks to put oil in my car. I'm a girl, but I'm NOT stupid. I know how to check my oil, change tire, battery, and so on. My dad and brother both gave me the basics. Just spent............

Don't feel singled out. Many places rip everyone off, not just women. Sometimes it's premeditated and sometimes it's incompetence. The best thing you can do is to find a trustworthy independent mechanic who works on a lot of VW/Audi's. They may not be easy to find, but they do exist. Write-ups and advice from this forum will also help you tremendously.
