Hello folks. First time on this forum. I purchased my first 2005 passat TDI with 300000km today. Zero rust. Been driving golf tdi for over 10 years. Will certainly use the google search for any issues like the balance shaft delete or not to delete.. and any other issues I want to know.. cheers.

First time vw owner. Bought a 2012 Passat 2.5 5spd highline. Pick it up on Tuesday and thought this forum would be a good resource. I read the post, understand, and can't wait to get researching!

This website has been here for 15 years. The B5 Passat has been around since 1997, the B5.5 since 2001, the B6 since 2006, the B7 since 2010, and the B8 was released in Europe in 2014.

For the older models (B6 and earlier), almost any possible issue you might have with your Passat has been discussed here on this website. Let me state that again - almost any possible issue you might have with your Passat has been discussed here on this website.

There has been a rash of newcomers here who aren't taking the time to look for previously documented information and expect to be spoon-fed from the veterans here on how to fix their cars. We, the veterans of this site, expect you newcomers to take the time to utilize the google search utility at the top and bottom of each and every page here. This search tool provides you, the new user, with the ability to search the entire database using google's search tools for key words and tricky phrases that are pertinent to your problem.

Please take the time to a) read and comprehend the valuable info I've written here; b) post in this thread that you have read what I've written here; and, c) use the google search tool - you'll get faster answers!

Thanks-

Here with my first Volkswagen. 2002 Passat GLS. Got it for $400. It's got 155K on the clock. Previous owner thought it needed a transmission. Added fluid following the proper way of doing it and she's going down the road shifting smoothly. Going to add some 18 inch wheels from a 2009 Pontiac G6 since all of the VW wheel owners were very proud of the wheels they were selling. Glad to have found this forum! Thanks

I understand why the intitation to the club is a resounding spanking, but I feel a bit like a pledge in a high school pep club... I get though why it's necessary to spank the whole new class to correct the one who can't use a search tool. Understood.

Thanks for the heads up, new to this site. I am happy and enjoy driving my 2018 Passat SEL, and extremely happy that there are not as many on the road as the Honda Accord or Toyota Camry, I'm not lost in the crowd. Moreover, the 6 year 72K warranty gives me great piece of mind. Please verify if my USA model is a B8?
Thank you,

Just read JAYTHESNORK in the next thread and seems the 2018 Passat is the B7, if correct he answered my question.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL,
