Hi All,

Let me start off by saying that for the last few years my car has "seemed" to turn over a little slow. Could just be me, could be Passats in general - I have no idea. I bought a new battery six months ago with no noticeable difference. My car has never left me stranded but today I couldn't start it after work and needed a boost. I have heard that the alternators are bulletproof (correct me if I'm wrong) in these cars so I have no idea where to start looking. Could it perhaps be a short somewhere? Is there an easy way for me to test the alternator? I don't know if this is purely coincidence but both of my seat warmers stopped working about a week ago (fuse is fine). Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated - I wan't to avoid taking into the shop. TIA!
