    2013 oilpan blanket

    Does anybody know where you can buy an oilpan blanket/insulator/cover? I can find every other part for the oilpan, but the blanket. I guess it is named something else! Mine is soaked in oil after 147000 miles.

    Headlights blink (off-on)

    I recently found an issue when going over a bump. Driving at night, lights on auto (and on), when I hit a bump, the headlights go off/on (once) really quick (maybe 0.1 seconds... just enough to make you notice). It only happens once a night or one bump... subsequent bumps of similar impact do...

    Extended Warranty (Who? Not who?)

    Who is the best company? Who do you have? Do you have any complaints? How much $,$$$ ? I started reading BBB complaints on a few (reputable) and started getting discouraged. I know there is thousands of happy customers to each BBB complaint. But it still makes you nervous to fork out a few...

    Stiff brakes

    What is the deal with my brake pedal? When I go to start the car, more often than not my brake pedal feels like it has been pumped until hard. It starts fine, no problems. Just, what the heck happens to cause it. I have about 42k miles on it. It may have done it 10 times in 40k miles and 10...

    Lower rear end on Passat (level)

    What is the best way to lower the rear end of a 2013 Passat? The car has always looked jacked up in the back, until I go for a road trip. I read about spring kits, but for that cost! I figure there would be a way to keep the stock suspension.
