Well hello everyone! Never swam to this side of the pond...
I was always in the Mk2/3 & TriState forums. Left for a while, now finally getting back into a VW.
Always had fun on this site, and was hoping you could help. I'm looking to buy a B5, looking to spend $2500-5500 and have been looking at cars with 80k-125k miles and manual transmission. My question to you expierenced Passat owners, what should I be looking for when checking these cars out? What issues are common? What should I be concerned about breaking or changing when I do buy one at a certain milage (i.e. timing belt, turbo, etc.)?
That being said, I have been looking at the classifieds and what not, but if anyone knows of a good deal not too far from NYC let me know!
