      The biggest problem with Passat A/C system is that it's just underpowered for the size of the car, it's never going to get frigid and the system is designed to cause less performance drop. I would...

      While premium was pretty much required on the TFSI, it is okay to put cheap stuff in the TSI. However, it is said you lose around 11hp if you do so. Although VW doesn't acknowledge it for the US...

      I think a small amount of noise is normal for this type of steering, particularly if it is under more load like turning the wheel from a stop. However, it's loud enough to bother you, it couldn't...

      Possibly moisture somewhere, near one of the electronics boxes that control the system. I had that once after the car was washed. Let it dry out and all was fine. I can't be more specific than that,...

      In addition to the speakers, you would need the Dynaudio amplifier for close to $1,000. As nice as the system is, it's incredibly expensive to fit yourself.

      I think you can get the sport package on the 2.0t, you get the same stuff as you'd get with the 3.6 sport. Good luck finding one, those are quite rare.

      I don't have time for your pedantry, TFSI is a common term for the earlier engine. I use TFSI because this is an international forum and the 2.0-litre was in fact offered around the world without a...

      All of the engines in the B6 Passat are FSI, it's VW's moniker for direct injection. Fuel Stratified Injection

      Of the three choices, you have 3.6L VR6 FSI (2006-2008), 2.0 TFSI (2006-2008) and 2.0...

      I feel the same way about my B6. Compared to a bunch of new cars, it just feels more substantial and higher quality.

      From what I've heard, it's much less of an issue with the VR6. Not really a problem until 100k or more.

      I would suggest against a Phaeton, the running costs would be much higher. You're looking at maintaining an $80k car, which is no small order. I did the same thing when I went from a problematic 2.0...

      When your windows are fogging up, you need to run the defrost cycle. This will run the A/C compressor as well as route hot air to the window vents. Don't forget to hit the rear defrost, too

      I have had my 2006 VR6 for over a year now, it has almost 70k on it with no real issues to speak of. All I have is a problem with TPMS where the light is always on, but it doesn't show a message...

      Models with the sport suspension were lowered by 15mm. I don't think sport suspension was an option for the 2010 year. However, it is possible that you have VW's Driver Gear springs or some other...

      To be honest, it looks absolutely terrible. Those wheels don't look look right on any VW and the trend is ridiculous.

      For the majority of people, these cars don't make financial sense past 100k or so. Repairs and maintenance items rack up and it's not feasible to keep the car longer. You really have to decide...

      I don't have that problem with the VR6 engine.:D Then again, the fuel consumption is pretty awful.
