This is my first. I bought my Passat and A4 within a month of each other back in '06 and have loved them both ever since. :thumbup:

AHOY!! And welcome aboard. I'm one of the old FARTS (Fathers Against Rebellious Teenagers) around here, so you'll need to ignore me most of the time. I don't know much about Passats, but my first VW was a 1900cc air cooled Beetle which I purchased brand new in 1969 for $1,999.00 out the door!

My first car is also my 00 Passat. Nice VW trunk emblem shot, that's my token shot (if you look in the showroom, you'll see ;)). Welcome to the club, good luck with whatever you choose to do to the car.

First VW for me was 96 Passat VR6 with 5-speed, which I bought after my girlfriend at the time had just bought a 96 Passat VR6 auto. Now we are married and have two 04 Passats both with the 1.8T and tiptronics, but mine with 4motion.

That's a great 1st car if you can fix problems yourself (or afford to pay for them). The V6 is a pretty good engine. Just watch for oil leaks and make sure the timing belt has been changed at 70K or so.

The engine can run on mid-grade fuel just fine. It might ping on regular (mine did only in 5th at low rpm). Oil type is not as critical as the 1.8T, just be sure it is changed every 5K.
