  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. Golf V & Jetta V
    Long story short, I have an 09 Jetta wagon that has a sunroof leak. I am in the process of nipple-ectomy and replacing the god awful drain lines. The previous owner never drained any of the water out, so I now have a musty smell in the carpet and padding material. I am trying to see if there is...

    It is an unfortunate and uncomfortable fact that the E63 AMG Wagon is faster than the RS6 Avant in a straight line. It costs more and it makes more power, so it’s hardly surprising but there is a way to tilt the odds in your favor. Throttle House has taken the two cars to the drag strip and in...

    Last week, Volkswagen sent out a press release about dealers participating in a “Community Drive Atlas Initiative.” I don’t really care about the press release, what caught my eye was this picture of the Atlas with a decal on its side. The decal fills the space between the beltline and the...

    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...

    The rumors were true! Actually we’ve known for a while that VW would shooting brakify the Arteon, but these latest images show more of the car than we’ve seen yet. Apparently uncamouflaged, the Arteon Shooting Brake looks pretty much as you’d expect, if a little large. Remember, though, that...

    Electric cars accelerate very quickly. This is a fact so plain that it’s almost boring these days. That’s why, even though I’m rooting for EVs like the e-tron, it’s fun to see that dominance taken on by something like the RS6 Avant. That said, RS6 Avant isn’t so much a monster-killer as it is a...

    They say that unicorns went extinct because Noah couldn’t find a pair to put in the arc. With only 97 of these W8 Passat Wagons having reportedly made their way into the US, its conservation might be just as tough. But you can do your part. A 2003 model, you could be the third owner of this...
