The recall is for a lower linkage/control arm. have had my car inspected and been told it requires replacing, but they cant do it till august. not sure if i want to drive my car between now and then. might try another service centre.
Just picked up a 2001 1.8T NZ new with FSH and 1 lady owner. Of course, it's black. Got sick of looking at Singapore imports with lotsa bling and oil sludge covered firewalls. Contis say this is "a very well serviced, very good example", and oh yes, 49kms too. I'm happy.
Hey Im from Auckz got a 1999 black vw passat v6 2.8 and loving it =D paint work is like new and drives like a dream. just had cambelt and waterpump done along with a full service. About to put 19' Mandris Millenium wheels on black with chrome polished lip. Looking for some adjustable springs but apparently they are few and far between for the passat. Also getting a custom front bumper and audi a4 chrome grill stuck on without the badges. Wondering whether my car is part of this recall as I had an aa check done on it and they said the front left suspension arm bushes are perishd... Think thats going to be pretty pricey
John be aware of the electrics in your car, if they start to play up flick it asap as it was imported from Singapore apparently there have been frequent probs in nz with the wiring loom diminishing on singapore imported passats which = MEGA $$$$ uke:. Just giving heads up :driving:
Just bought an '02 1.9TDi wagon (NZ new). Great car! It was lowered with (German made?) springs and Bilstein(sp) shocks by previous owner who was a traveling sales executive (not boy-racer . Rides a little harder than I am used to / prefer but it sticks to the road like on rails.
