    Rear wheel hot with burning smell

    I went for a short drive yesterday and when I returned I parked in the garage and noticed a slight burning smell and found the smell was coming from the rear passenger wheel as it was much warmer than the other wheels.

    Handling on wet roads I was wondering how the 335d handles on wet roads. I know I wouldn't want to have it on ice and snow but I was wondering it this would be a suitable car for southern Florida? Thanks Tom

It is such a great driver's car that really can spoil you. The fuel economy on the Passat has steadily climbed to almost 40 mpg per tank, whereas the...
