  1. Passat (B5)
    I’m getting an older car to keep around for emergencies and am loving the b5 Passat wagon. I wfh now and this thing would likely only be driven a few times a week or even month. I also live in Colorado which snows a decent amount but not super crazy. I’ve found 2 wagons locally, one 2005 TDI...
  2. Passat (B6)
    Recently got oil change, after that car started behaving abnormally. It wouldn’t accelerate as usual and on incline roads it will hardly run. I took it to the same shop and they said it's a camshaft timing issue. They cannot fix it and suggested me to take it to another who would have more...
  3. Passat (B7)
    I tried buying a manual from eManualOnline and it is so awkward with .pdf (almost all sections locked) and .avo file (virtual machine super complex load of file crashes) that I am suspicious the whole site is a scam. Can anyone recommend a digital manual for the North America 2014 1.8t gas...

    I have a JB1 tuner for sale from Burger Motorsports for $280. It is brand new and has not been installed on any vehicle yet. I am only selling it because I cannot return it online to USP Motorsports where it was purchased from, and I went with the JB4 instead. I love my JB4 and I highly...
  5. Passat (B7)
    OK, 7 months ago my 2014 Passat with 1.8 turbo suddenly overheated and I limped into a mechanic shop at 11 pm for him to fix the following days. It over heats after about 5 minutes of creeping along at 30mph. No coolant ever leaked. He blamed the water pump, and after first replacing the...
  6. Passat (B6)
    So my timing belt broke and I put new on, and I am not sure if my timing is 100% correct. The car turns on, is smooth at idle and the problem is when I accelerate. Car starts wobbling and shuttering. What problems occur when belt brakes, and do you think its bad timing. Thanks for help.

    I did the PCM update on my 2018 Passat and I don’t think I’m reaching the same miles on the tank of gas. Maybe it’s my driving/drop in temp (Chicago). But I’m pretty sure MPG’s dropped. Sorry too lazy for hard numbers. Any feedback, TIA
  9. Passat (B7)
    My 2016 Passat SE has the dual zone climate control. A few weeks ago I noticed the driver side was blowing ice cold air from the outside but passenger side was working fine. I adjusted the temp on my side and then it started working again. Yesterday, it stuck and there's no fixing it with just...
  10. Passat (B7)
    I'm new to the VW world. I believe I've seen other B7 Passats have 4 motion with the V6. I was wondering if its possible to install or swap 4 motion into a TDI model? I love the TDI but would love AWD up here in Wisconsin. Any feedback is much appreciated.
  11. Passat (B5)
    Not looking to sell at the moment just wanted a ballpark of how much I could get for my 99 1.8T i’ve done all the preventative maintenance (Water pump,Timing belt, Accessories belt etc.) Also changed the MAF has no rust it has 243000 km but clutch was swapped at 200000 with plenty of life left...

As of 2023, VW’s Chattanooga plant will only build crossovers. “We’ve made a decision to cancel the Passat for the U.S,” said Ralf Brandstätter, VW brand CEO, per Ward’s Auto. "The sales...

    You ever see a cat just kind of mess up? There’s something so fun about seeing such a dignified, elegant creature be clumsy for a moment and that’s kind of the appeal of this recent video from Volkswagen. Made to celebrate international doughnut day (which is every day in this office), VW asked...

    The millionth vehicle ever produced at Volkswagen’s Chattanooga plant has rolled off the line. The car is an Aurora Red 2020 Passat R-Line. “It’s gratifying to me that our team is back to work and able to mark yet another key milestone since the opening of VW’s Chattanooga plant,” said Tom du...

    There are certain advantages to being neighbors with Canada and one of them is that they sometimes get neat cars that never came to the US, like this 1992 Passat CL G60 Syncro Wagon . First sold in British Columbia, it was imported to Georgia in 2018. Not only is it an all-wheel-drive wagon...

    Among the colors that Volkswagen sells for the Atlas, one of the newest ones is Racing Green. If the name rings a bell, it’s because it was used on the B5 Passat. If you’re the type of VW fan who knows old color codes like pedants know commas—which is pretty likely if you’re reading this—then...
