I can see that it's bent. That would require a whole rear axle. Looks just like my wagon. Shame it's banged up!surprisingly hard to get a good photo of the bent axle. if you shoot if from the rear, you can see the wheel is not in the correct position, but you cant' see the other damage, if you shoot it from the side, you can't really see the wheel/axle bend very well at all
Yes, VW made a wagon with the Alh. It's the Jetta wagon, though they really go for a lot right now, or the b4 Passat wagon which had the 1z tdi. Neither were longitudinal though. But, they're a lot easier to work on too and get a lot better fuel economy.Yes mine definitely is not that bad. The wrecker came and took my car to the iaii insurance yard. The wrecker driver said I would never see it again.
I am really torn on if I want it back. That example failed me in the mpg department.
Did vw make a longitudinal ALH passat wagon? Or any ALH wagon for the U.S. market?
I want to give a tdi another chance. The passat wagon was a good size for me. Maybe a tiny bit too big. I am still on the fence about the PD engines and the computer stuff. For either DD status or a new swap.
I really wanted the BHW just for the longitudinal engine. But i fear it is too complicated for reliability and parts cost if it is not going to be a easy 40 mpg engine.
