Do you know if these are North American totals including Canada or just USA destined?DeliveryValve said:I did a search previously about the production numbers in this thread and leicaman led me to passatworld.com member traubenberg who had all the info on production numbers of all 2000-2005 Passats.
Here is what he found for me....
2004 Sedan GL =1137 GLS = 7605 Total = 8742
2004 Wagon GL = 477 GLS = 3842 Total = 4319
Total 2004 TDI production =13061
2005 Sedan GL = 874 GLS = 5530 Total = 6404
2005 Wagon GL = 381 GLS = 3055 Total = 3436
Total 2005 TDI production = 9840
It is interesting that in leicaman's chart the production of 2004 is a lot lower then traubenberg found.
BTW - I have over 49,000 miles on my Wagon and just love this car!
I have a Euro spec so mine is slightly different than yours. I have a 2001 B5.5 AVF PD 130 1.9TDI 4 Motion. In 2005 the last service shows 175,000 km's. In 2006 the next service shows 106,000 km's. In German it notes that the odometer was changed some where in that time but doesn't note when. Any how it now reads 186,000 km's, so at a minimum it has 370,000 km's or 231,000 miles. It runs great and still averages about 35 mpg. I just towed a 3300 pound trailer 1200 miles with it over the Alps and back.KALaBenne said:Hey Ya'll,
I'm curious to know how many miles you have put on your B5.5. Part of the reason I bought mine is because I drive a lot of miles a year and I suspect many of you do the same. I bought my B5.5V 3 months ago with 94K and since then have added 10K so I stand at a paltry 104K miles. I plan on driving mine until the wheels fall off but I want to know where we are on proveing the longevity of these automobiles.
Since this is the picture/spec thread you could post a pic as well.
Anyone else have this curiosity?
BTW, I know all you B4 drivers are dying to gloat about the multiple thousands of miles on yours, but start your own thread please.
Just had ours done via a VW recall. Did not cost us a dime. They replaced glo plugs and reflashed the ECM.leicaman said:Did you have your glow plugs changed over to the new steelies? If so your ECM reflashed to accept the lower voltage of the new plugs?
I have 56k as of May 22, 2009 on mine and mine goes to Oilhammer in June for the BS, TB, WP, MM, etc., job.
It's still new! It should be for that mileage. Mine has 71K and I am seeing an alternator die.DezlDan said:I have a 2005 Passat Wagon....only 30,000 miles (50,000 km). The car has been bullet proof so far....amazing!
