    Thread: ?'s about an 2005 Passat TDI

      I am in need of some general info about the reliability and problems with B5.5 TDI's. I'm thinking about grabbing one, but unsure about any problems these cars might have or what I should look for when buying. Share any info that you think is helpful. I greatly appreciate it.

      Balance Shaft issues, camshaft issues, transmission issues. All are pricey to fix but they are super nice cars when those problems are taken care of.
