      Not happy with it, but every VW I've owned (6) did this. Sometimes I would love to just have some cool fresh air w/o running the A/C but warm air blows out. All the Japanese cars I had from 1973-2000...

      I LOVE my 2013 3.6!
      -To me, the interior is not any cheaper than the much beloved B5. I know, I had one
      -Prefer the understated styling
      -Real quiet and comfy but the handling is not bad at all...

      That is exactly what mine is doing! Heck, with my GTI I can back off the temp to halfway after a while. With the Passat I need to keep it at 3/4ths just to maintain heat.

      My Metal Shop teacher in high school drove a early 70's Ford F-150.

      Back in those days, it had F O R D in metal letters at the front edge of the hood.

      Hmm...I am tempted! I used to own an R32 and I miss the sound! Just wouldn't want it to be too loud.

      I live in IL near Indiana....might not be too far.

      Exactly! When VW first started the campaign I thought OK, they are cleaner than the last gen diesel but no cleaner than any other car that meets specs. All cars have to pass the same tests (depending...

      Did you know Murray from TAD Motorsports that prepped the old Mitsubishi Eclipse for SCCA/Michelin PRO Rally series driver Henry Joy? Great shop, nice dude. Lost track of him.

      Oh yeah, I love my 13 Passat 3.6! I'm averaging 28 with 80% highway driving. Since mine is FWD torque steer is pretty hairy but the SOUND!!! Sport mode DSG=yeeeehahhhh!

      This ^^^^ and what the previous poster stated....I had the same thing happen years ago with plastic hub rings. Had to ditch the wheels, this was before you could find machined hub rings.

      But your 12V battery will! Ask C-Max and Fusion Hybrid owners. If anything wakes up the CAN bus on a regular interval it will drain it.

      Interesting. Compared to my GTI, the car seems to not put out nearly as much heat, period unless it is on the last three "clicks" on the temp dial (I have an SE V6, not auto climate).

      In my GTI I...
