    What do you love or hate on your Passat and why?

    When I say leaks, I don't mean enough where you notice actual level reductions between oil changes. I am talking that occasional drip that finally makes it down to the ground caused by various components mentioned. It's just my thing that I don't like. We are on a forum where I think it is a...

    Passat B5.5 Recurrent Limp Mode Defies Repairs and Frustrates Both Owner and Mechanic

    Is this the end of my TDI?
