      On the side of your remote/keyfob, you will see a small button. Press it and the metal blade pops out, for you to keep. You can lock out the boot and fuel cap, along with the glove box with the...

      Could be a pulley somewhere. Those are known to make some terrible noises, when they wear out.

      Dealer is usually the best place to go for OEM. As I recall, the dealer charged $180 for a new OEM battery and installation. Your price will vary, but I have found the prices to be generally...

      Your fuel economy will always vary, based on traffic, speed, acceleration and inclines. To get accurate results, you have to eliminate every variable.

      I can't see how the 3.6L Passat is settling over the R32, either. Both cars weigh about the same, but the Passat has more power and a better interior. Not to mention, the 3.6L has an even deeper...

      Your external air temperature sensor is close to the road, it reads high because the road radiates on hot days. You could be getting a bit of heat off the other radiators as well, causing it to be...

      My view is that it's better to maintain what you have. You know the faults and how to deal with them. With a different engine, you get new problems to go with it.

      Most common problem on these cars is the compressor. Cooling performance just gets worse over time. Eventually, the compressor just dies.

      The smell wasn't that of a damp nature, it was just a stale sort of smell. Further inspection shows the filter dated back to 2009.

      Not much today, changed the engine air filter and the in-cabin air filter. I had some smells inside and the old filter had the same smell. I hope this gets rid of the problem.

      Absolutely! I don't want to know how much petrol I've wasted, just to hear it wind out. I try not to do it too much but, it's addictive.

      I average around 17-19MPG city and 24-26MPG highway with the VR6. My driving style tends to be a bit more lively.

      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...

      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.
