I have a '08 2.0t Passat Variant (~ 45k miles) which is going through a severe lack of power under all loads. The 0-60mph times, for instance, which were completed at around 8 seconds, can't get done under 11 seconds now.
I took it to a repair center, where It had all its spark plugs and the pressure regulator valve replaced. I talked to the guys about my issues, but they had the car checked with the VAG and nothing abnormal has come up from it.
The problem still remains after the service has been done.
Do you guys have some hint of what may be causing this issue? Apart from the lack of power, the engine seems to be running smooth. Could it be a faulty turbo?
