  1. Car Audio and Electronics
    Hi All, Happy New year, I'm looking to buy a replacement battery for my 2014 Jetta SE for when I need it. The battery is original from 2014 and still works perfect, but I figure its more than living on borrowed time. I figured I would buy a similar OEM battery from the dealer given that their...
  2. Cabriolet
    I really need quick help with this, I appreciate y’all’s time so much- So starting a few weeks ago, every now and again when the car was stopped it would stall. I was always able to just restart the car, and continue on like nothing happened. Today, the same thing happened, however upon...

    EPC and Engine light This is my first VW and I'm still figuring out stuff. I got into the car after work and just pressed start/stop engine button. This started the head unit, interior lighting and hvac system. On the instrument cluster I see EPC and engine light on. These lights go away when I...
  4. Passat (B6)
    Hey guys, I've recently come into ownership of a 2013 Passat with 2.5L L5 with 156k miles. However, there are a few things that the previous owner (a family member) never bothered to fix. At 2000 rpm, the engine starts to sound "rough" and doesn't sound like its accelerating smoothly. At the...
  5. Jetta/GLI VI
    There's a grinding noise that pops up every once in a while when I get into the boost a little bit, but only at low rpms. I saw a video recently where a guy stepped on the gas and that same noise popped up, but the he put "Boost Leak??" In the description for that specific sound. Not sure what...
  6. TDI and Diesel Forum
    Hey all, I’ve seen mixed forums on this issue. I need to replace my oil pan on my 2007 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 2.0 and I’ve come across this: VAICO Oil Pan V10-1884 | Sparesbox I’ve seen people complain about VAICO’s products like control arms, ball joints, oil pumps, etc. But what about oil...
  7. Golf V & Jetta V
    I kinda touched on this in my last post. I have an 06 GLI that wasn’t very well maintained by the previous owner. Upon inspection, I realized it’s going to end extreme maintenance or a total swap. I find that the swap would probably be less of a headache than a restoration of the current. I’m...
  8. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    ive owned a 2001 gti vr6 for 5 years daily driver with 255,000 miles. Had timing chain and guides done at 113,000 miles.

    Hey guys, I just got a new Jetta R-Line and bought the 8-Year Extended Warranty and 70K maintainace plan for $2400 & $1500 respectively.
