This leak is intermittent but I think it's coming from the left front shock or???
I noticed a couple of oil streaks on my driveway but noting in my garage and I suspected it may have been from someone parking in my driveway.
I tried to wash it off but it won't come out.
Just the other day I noticed another streak of an oily substance right after my wife pulled onto the driveway and stopped.
The leak was behind the left front wheel just inside of the tire line.
The streaks are about 12" long.

Has anyone had a similar experience?

Check the CV boots and drive axles. I have an 04 Passat that goes through axles and they leak in the area you describe.

what year is your passat? If it's a 1.8T automatic, I am think it might be transmission fluid, leaking from your ATF cooler seals, might wanna check into that.
