    TDI the 1.8T a dog?

    We rented a gasser while on a FL vacation... It would depend on a couple of things. If i drove a lot on the highway i would get the gasser, it's quiet and the room in the passat is second to none (especially with car seats in the back you dont have to give up any leg room). But at slow speeds...

    VWGoA Claim website

    I received the link to the online form this morning and took me through the steps on redeeming the $ for my 2013. You basically can still change your mind but it seems they are trying to get a feel for how many will be doing the buyback and how many will be taking the money and running. Things...

    Passat Replacement based cabin size?

    Yeah i'm 6' and cant imagine going on long drives with most drivers seats pushed forward much... I dread driving her Forrester because the seats are already not comfortable, much less when moving forward 3-4".

    Passat Replacement based cabin size?

    This, i dont plan on getting rid of my car, but if i had to i would still stick with the passat. There just isnt another sedan with the back seat room as this Passat.

    Failed water pump, 200 miles past warranty

    Good grief, 2 things, 1. the dealers and their service departments are crap (although you could get it done with the free 500 bucks they have given everyone) 2. Take car to a real mechanic and replace the water pump, for less than the cost of one car payment you are off and running again... I...

    VW radios

    Yes, I upgraded my old ant in my A4 jettas, the FM improved, the am not so much. This was just a cheap ebay upgrade. What year passat? I have the 2013 and i was looking forward to a better radio and it isnt much better... My wife's subaru is incredible compared to mine.

    New 2015 Passat TDI Highline owner

    The vent thing drives me crazy, everyone that has tried them hates them but the amount of water kick back from the windshield, even during misty times is bad and the water shedding off the roof into the car in the morning is crazy! I cracked the windows this morning and backed out of my...
