    I should have known better. The dealer strikes again.

    So I noticed a certain wiring harness was starting to fray on my 13 Passat (common problem) and since I was close to my 30k service, I thought I would just drop it off so they could take care of both. I normally do my own oil changes and have since new on this vehicle but I was also getting a...

    Fault Codes, Could use advice

    So I did a scan w/ VCDS and came up with 2 fault codes. I was really trying to avoid the dealer for anything even though I am still under warranty. Maybe someone could tell me what these are and if I should really get them checked by the dealer or just clear them. The car seems to be running...

    Trading Jetta in for Passat. Need advice.

    Well, even after the problems I had with my Jetta I decided I'm going to stick with VW. I test drove a couple hybrids but the thought of being stuck in one of those boring S*** boxes for 3 hours a day would make me want to shoot myself in the head. I've decided to switch from a manual to a DSG...

    Poor AM radio reception RCD-310

    I don't listen to AM very often but when I want it, I'd like to have it. Problem is, I can't get any channels to come in. Anyone else have this problem in their Jetta? Any fix for it? Or do I just have to live with it?

    Here's my problem. About once a week while attempting to shift into fifth gear under normal acceleration, the shifter will not go all the way into its proper position. But if I maintain normal pressure towards fifth gear on the knob while releasing the clutch, something releases and lets the...

    Diesel Cheaper than Gas!

    Bout freakin time. This hasn't happened in a long time (for me anyway). Diesel was actually 5 cents LESS than RUG. In my area Diesel has been at least 10 cents more for a while and even up to a dollar more in recent months as all of you know, i'm sure.

    Engine cut out at 60mph

    This afternoon I pulled out onto the highway, leisurely accelerated to 60 mph and was cruising along in 5th for about 3 or 4 miles when all of the sudden my engine loses power. I look down at the speedo and the needle drops to zero and yellow light comes on. NOT the glowplug light. It was on the...

    Wiper Clicking, not a relay

    I'm going to have to take it in for this one because its really annoying. I did a search and some said they have a relay clicking but this is mechanical in nature. Just wanted to know if anyone had to deal with this yet. The sound on the video is a little off, the clicking happens right when...
