Volkswagen Passat FAQs and Reviews Volkswagen Passat FAQs and Reviews Ask a Question

Ok, I've probably already messed up since I've already purchased the car, but here goes. I had an '03 Volkswagen Passat with 32,000 miles and some change on it. I really liked it, but I'd had some little problems here and there. My main problem was keeping the darned thing gassed up! It was a turbo, so buying premium was a drag! Anyway, back in July I ...
I have a 2002 Passat. Recently, after a heavy rain, there was substantial flooding in the floor on the driver's side. None of the electrical buttons worked, the hazard lights were frozen on, and no matter how much we mopped out the water, there would be another inch of it within an hour. Apparently, water came through the pollen filter seal into the car ...
I am considering buying a VW Passat (2001) for approximately $10,000. The car has 41000 miles on it and looks to be in great shape. I've yet to take it to a mechanic for a final check, but I was wondering what your opinion is based on the information I gave you. Thanks, Renee
I have a 2000 Passat. It was owned by my aunt for 2 years w/14,000 miles (sat for about 1 1/2 yrs before I bought it.) Whenever the outside temp goes above 70 degrees, the oil warning light comes on. Have had it checked, sensors changed, etc., nothing worked. As soon as the outside temp goes below 70 in the fall, the light does not come on again until the ...
Have disabled daughter - total and permanent - from work accident. She has a child to support and raise. Despite everything, company still not being responsible, in any regard - medical treatment, pay, etc. Went for over a year without medical treatment causing worsening of problem to the point of it now being irreversible. Does anyone know any avenue of ...
During the first 30,000 miles, I had to replace my rotors TWICE despite bringing my car in for service exactly when due each 5,000 miles. (VW says theirs are too short to cut.) Now that I am out of warranty at 40,000, I no longer intend to bring it to the dealer for service. I want to find a local mechanic to service my car. I have two questions: 1. what ...
I "need" to sell my car 04 vw passat 4 motion If I advertise myself ? free publications? What about people coming to my home, I
Is it worth paying for the 40,000 mile inspection for my 2005 Passat? It
I just bought a new car & was told the vehicle I want cost 3k extra so they were able to incorporate that in the payments because I needed a sunroof(claustrophobic) and leather(I am allergic to synthetics). I never saw the vehicle until they brought it out to me at 9pm, at which time it was too dark to notice a small dent on the rear passenger window. I ...
I am looking into leasing a Volkswagen Passat, either a new 2008 or a 2009. Do you have any advice about the reliability of this car?
I have a 2008 Passat. There is a dash warning light that looks like the frame of a car with a funnel on the upper right hand side (all in yellow). I have gas in the car. Do you know what this means? Thanks - Eric
This problem started happening about a month ago and occurs only once in a while and inconsistently. This makes it difficult to reproduce when trying to explain or show it to others. While driving, the car jerks as if I ran over something. It has happened about 5+ times and I have had others drive it to get their opinion. Its almost like the car slows ...
what does the warning light"P" with a strike through it mean.
When should the timing belt, serpentine belt, cooling fluid, transmission fluid and break fluids be changed?
I went to start my 2000 Volkswagen Passat and all you get is a click. No warning lights turned on and had to bump start it.
I want to purchase a car that seats 6 adults with some limited luggage and that can be converted to carry bulky cargo when just 2 adults are in the car. I live in NW CT and we get some significant snow and ice on the roads so it is a must that this car handle well in these conditions. I like a manual transmission because of the extra control but am fine ...
