Default Used 2015 Passat

I saw a used 2015 Passat for sale recently. I'm assuming this car required emissions upgrade. How can I tell if they were done? There's no indication on the Carfax.

Thanks

I believe the updates required stickers to be placed under hood once they were completed. But there is also a web site from VW where you can input the VIN and receive that information. Donít have it handy but you could likely find it with Google.

dealer is best for verifying phase 2 has been performed, VW website was mainly for cash payments.

Also if you can get the car on lift, it'd be real easy to see that pipe cut in with the second O2 sensor.

Call a dealer with the vin, ask if it has open recalls. It takes time for paperwork to process through vw and carfax.

+1.

Open the hood, look for the emissions stickers. They're silver, about 3x4", and on the hood itself, mine are near the windshield. One for each phase for 2015s EA288 engine.

I'm looking at a 2015 to purchase as well and it has PARTIAL on that website. So once I purchase the car (from a chevy dealership), take it to a VW place and they will replace the exhaust and add the warranty??

There should be emissions warranty papers with the car. It's eligible for the Phase II emissions warranty after a certain amount of time and miles. You can have it done when the car's eligible. It may not be now. You can get a copy of the warranty terms at a VW dealer, or it's probably on line here somewhere. Most TDIs haven't had the Phase II fix yet because they don't have enough miles on them, so the car showing a partial fix is normal.

why you running multi weight oil? everyone knows should be straight 30W so it lasts 1,000,000 miles.
