    2015 Passat TDI EA189? Coolant hose issues

    I have the same leak on my 2015 Passat TDI EA288. I told the dealership when it was under warranty and they told me that they couldn't find a leak anywhere, but it was really easy to find. A TDI mechanic that does not work for a VW stealership, found it and told me that he had someone else had...

    Not Again! VW Caught Cheating With Its Diesel Emissions “Fix”

    Shame on me? I'm greedy? Wow. If that is true, what word would you use to describe VW? Hmmm? Look, if VW screwed up, then that's their fault. IF they cheated ONCE, were held accountable, paid their dues, & I got paid ONCE, well then great. IF they cheated TWICE, are held accountable, pay their...

    Anyone smell coolant at shutdown?

    I have a 2015 Passat TDI SE manual and it has developed this smell in the past two or three weeks. It's at 60k miles and it hasn't leaked lately. It did leak, or at least I thought it did, once at 40k, BUT there was no smell OR light OR coolant on the floor of the garage. The reservoir was...

    2019 Kia Sorento DIESEL

    I remember the Youtube channel Autoline Daily had mentioned that an online viewer/subscriber had come across a caravan of Kia Sorento SUVS that did not have a fuel tank lid and was able to see a blue DEF fluid cap right next to fuel cap and wondered what it meant. I guess NOW we know. ;)...

    U.S. Approves first fix for 70,000 polluting VW diesel vehicles

    GoFaster, IF you read the article, it says that on Friday the January the 6th VW's fix was approved by the EPA & CARB. Waaaaaaay behind is a maaaaaajor exaggeration. I posted it two days later. On the Dieselgate forum it was posted on January the 6th with no one commenting on it. I also like how...

    Who has the most miles on their 2015 Passat TDI and how it holding up?

    Purchased in 12/2014. 21K+ miles and no issues whatsoever. A road hazard broke a part of the front grill. A road hazard also ruined one of the original tires and since no one had the OE at the available Discount Tire stores, I decided to check with the VW dealer and they wanted $260 for ONE...

    VW dealers to revolt against VW

    Looks like the VW dealers are getting the short end of the stick from VW and they are not happy. :eek: For me, I would just like to know that I could buy a new TDI should mine get ruined beyond repair. I'd hate to be in the car if that happened, but, :rolleyes: I would like to have options to...

    Newer TDI Passats Which Year to Buy

    2015 I had a 2012 TDI SE DSG and it ran really well until the accident. It was replaced by a 2015 TDI SE manual and I can really tell a difference in the new EA288 engine. The new motor seems to respond faster and seems to warm up faster. Other than that, they're both very nice cars.

    new Turbo & DPF gone -

    @scottcane: Well, the only thing I have to offer from my experience is when my early (green dash lights, not blue and red) 1998 1.8 turbo (gas) B5 Passat had 99,600 miles on it, the engine lights flashed twice out of the blue & the all the gauges went dead while I was on the highway...
