    EPA fix & DPF ?

    I'm leaning towards keeping my Passat with 135k on it because it's been a great car but by keeping it and doing the EPA fix I'm wondering how long the DPF will last and what the cost will be after EPA fix.. I usually keep my tdi's for 300k+ but the DPF is concerning.. What's the cost going to be...

    2012 Passat Wiper Blades

    Just an update I got about a year out of the onyx beam blades. For me these worked great and are just starting to slightly streak now so I just had them put on. These aren't the easiest to put on only because you need to take the stock plastic insert that is installed on the onyx blade and...

    Heating System

    I didn't have this issue late winter but I am due for a pollen filter change so after I do that maybe I'll get lucky. It was 29 degrees when I left work tonight and as soon as I started the car the windshield was completely fogged with in 10 seconds of starting the engine. Really odd. I have...

    Heating System

    The issue is not to get heat. It's strictly trying to get rid of fog on the inside of the window.. The first thing I tried was full heat on max set to defrost.. That's only way to clear it up is full heat with the windows cracked.. Just full heat will not get rid of it completely. I have a 80...

    Heating System

    No matter what I do it takes 40 minutes to get the windows fog free.. This morning 36 degrees and tried AC on for 10 min, straight defrost on high for 10 min, auto set to 68 and then 72 it does matter.. I don't remember this issue last year.. Only thing that's works is defrost on with windows...

    FYI Rain-X Wiper Fluid Warning

    Well I removed it and not the light is permanently on.. The dealer that told me about VW knowing about this issue also said this sensor is on hold because of this issue. I called another dealership and they said the same thing about the sensor. Does anyone know if it's easy to pull out this sensor?

    FYI Rain-X Wiper Fluid Warning

    I just posted this to let people know that it can cause an issue and VW is working on it.. The OEM stuff works OK in warm weather but if you apply Rain - x correctly it works great. Once you apply it u need to buff the hell out of it with a dry cloth or paper towels. You will not use your...

    2012 Passat Wiper Blades

    Sorry. Yes they fit but had the guy at Advanced Auto do it. I told him that there aren't any option really for 2012 passats. He said to try these and they fit. The wipers come with the plastic adapters so they snap right into the square hole on the wiper arm. I have a 53 mile commute to work...
