    Locked up brake calipers: I am at my wits end with this damn car.

    Just wondering how many miles you are getting out of your brakes, all original on my 13 beetle at 108k and original rears on my 14 passat at 113k, replaced the fronts at 72k because of warped rotors for a 2nd time still had 50% or so pad life.

    Best tire choices in 2022?

    I have michelin defenders on my beetles (205/55 16 and 215/55 17). Michelin doesn’t make primacies for my 13 tdi (17” rim) either, so just went to the defender last year, it’s a little different feel than the primacy at first, but 5,000 miles later it seems the same. I have primacies on my...

    60K plus miles in and repairs will almost total last year vehicle purchase

    That makes s3ense on the water pump, the timing belt and serpentine belt were replaced on mine at that time because of the coolant contamination to the belts. I chose to pay for the tensioner and the rollers so I don’t have to replace any of that until 183k.

    60K plus miles in and repairs will almost total last year vehicle purchase

    If you have to remove the timing belt for the camshaft seal then the serpentine belt would come off first meaning you shouldn’t pay labor for that, it would be part of the other repair. There’s no difference in putting the old belt back or changing to a new one.

    60K plus miles in and repairs will almost total last year vehicle purchase

    Was the water pump leaking? Is that the cause of the early timing belt/water pump replacement? Mine failed at 53k under powertrain warranty.

    Well this is a fine mess, could use some direction

    Early 2012 meaning built in 2011. I saw an early 2012 passat in a dealership service dept one time that autozone installed a battery backwards, you could smell the fried electronics final bill iirc was around $12k, this was 2014ish so the car was fixed and not totaled but it took awhile. Later...

    Well this is a fine mess, could use some direction

    Have you driven it at all? If it was an early 2012 before the master fuse then i could see multiple modules being fried, but later ones (later 12s and up) seem to just fry the master fuse.

    Was stuck in snow, now car shakes between 25-35mph

    I haven’t had fuel injector fail in either car (passat & beetle), so I don’t know the symptoms for that.

    Was stuck in snow, now car shakes between 25-35mph

    It wouldn’t hurt to check, my beetle would stumble under hard acceleration the summer prior to my last frozen intercooler.

    Start with good battery. Then check the main fuse.

    Was stuck in snow, now car shakes between 25-35mph

    I’d start with checking the intercooler pipe on the passenger side for water with the stumbling. As far as your warranty, should be 6/26/22 or 127815. 4 years or 48000 miles whichever comes first.
