If I have the car in DRIVE and I have my foot on the brake and am idling like at a traffic light, every five seconds or so the car will shimmy, VERY slightly, but just enough to be noticeable. Anyone else have this "experience"

The V6 on the Passats have been known to slightly be rough at idle (typically when you are stopped in Drive at say a red-light). Mine does it too occasionally. You can ask the dealer to check the RPM and slightly adjust it a wee bit lower (to reduce vibration) or higher (if it looks like stalling)
