VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 Opinionssuggestions needed on TONS of problems with 2006 Passat

Bought a CPO 06 20k mile VW passat that is a piece of crap & literally had everything replaced within 6 months - a few of them within 3 DAYS of purchasing the car. From entire AC system to radio to ignition module to steering column instrument cluster to heater gas tank dropped & replaced fuel injectors I believe coil packs fuel lines radiator leaking water pump driver door handle because it stopped

Wow tboyd Sorry to hear. I have an 06 2.0T with just over 44k on it (bought it used in May 09 from a Ford dealer). Previous dealer had it on a lease and only put 15k on it and took great care of it. I definitely havent had all the problems you described. Had to have the intake flapper motor replaced AC had issues but I fixed it for just 33 (needed a new sensor) ignition coils were replaced as a recall

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 2006 model Trouble with ignition key can anyone hjelp

I have a major bug with my passat 06 mod. Ive just passed 120.000 km and every service maintenance has been handled at a licenced VW garage. Now suddenly the ignitionkey is not working anymore. It seems like it does not recognize the key.. Anyone knows this problem Is it permanent

If it is the keyless entry function that is not working it could just be the battery inside the key. If the car starts and then stalls you could have one of a few problems. The US cars were recalled for Electronic steering lock control modules that could cause that symptom. You could also have a failure of the key immobilizer or a related part. You will need to have someone scan the car to find out

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 passat 3.6 problems

I have a problem with my car and I hope someone can help. I am new to the passat market. I just purchased a 2006 passat with the 6 in it. I have had it for 2 12 months. I tried to search for the same problems I have but cant find anyone who has them also. When you are driving the car it just shuts down. No hesitation no prior warning no lights that come on. The car will go from driving 60 to 70mph

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 does anybody actually have a problem free 2006 passat

i know that internet is a common place for most to complain about the problems they are having. so you dont usually get to hear from people who have no problems with their vehicle. im curious to know who has spent the least amount of money on their passat. ive got an 06 2.0T and i wanna be able to keep it for a few years. but i dont wanna spend a small fortune on it. all ive read in general reliability websites are negative comments. so what do u gotta say

My 06 3.6 passat quit blowing cold air during May then after fiddling a bit with the climate controls it started working fine again a half hour later. So maybe there are AC problems cropping up for this generation. I traded for a TDI Jetta in June. My passat was trouble free for 85000 mi except for the known recalls sudden wiper motor failure (warranty) battery cable (warranty) ignition coils (warranty

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 KeyIgnition Problem

So our 06 passat has been giving us strange starting problems. It is like it will not recognize our key and not start or give the key back. It is very intermittent and if you wait a few minutes and play around with the key it eventually will start or give you the key. A few weeks ago a code did come up saying something like Steering Lock Malfunction or something. It only gave that error once and I

My 2006 passat was giving problems to start. Diagnostic tests showed that the electrical system in the steering columnimmobilizer was the problem. It appeared that the system was not recognizing my key. Finally it had to be towed as the problem got worse. Nearly 1300 Cdn dollars later ..it was fixed. I heard from one of the mechanics there that they have had a similar problems with quite a few passats...

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 Would you buy this 2006 Have you bought a used 2006 and regretted it

Hi all Ive read the threads on the problems with the 2006 but surely they cant all be total lemons I found a 2006 with 40k miles from the original owner and a few months extended warranty left. A fair bit of recall and warranty work already performed. I think people are nervous about this model so its only 12k which is a lot less than the Camry Accords of the same year and mileage. Its tough to find

I bought a 2006 w 27k on it back in October. I also bought the b-b warranty. About a week after owning it the ignition switch went out (wouldnt send signal to radio to shut off w car radio would stay on) and trunk latch (wouldnt stay closed sometimes or register on the display as being closed). Both were replaced for free by dealership. No problems since. My son loves the car.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 2006 3.6L Engine Failure

We have a 2006 3.6L 4-Motion which now has almost 32K miles. We have had some annoying trips to the dealer (80 miles away) for problems I have not encountered before with other vehicles. That being said we love the car and would like to keep it for a few more years. (My last VW was a 1971 Super Beetle Convertible.) However it appears there is an engine issue relating to a bolt in the oil pump either

and at least be able to read other codes set without a 80 mile drive to reset a simple light. Even with these issues the car has grown on us. I don&8217t believe there is an American car in its class. When it&8217s all working right you can&8217t beat it It&8217s because of these glitchy problems that I am very attuned to what may lie ahead with engine problems.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 Electrical Problem with 2006 Passat 2.0T

I have a 2006 passat 2.0T. Some times when I get in the vehicle and try to start it the dash systems will just flicker with a clicking sounds and it barely displays anything on it. It will do that for a few minutes then all of a sudden it gets full power back and lights work fully and starts. It will also do this when I dont try starting it. Like this evening I went to unlock my car and it wouldnt

it. Its odd because the passat seems like it has several electrical problems. The driver window switch is messed up because sometimes when I have it go on auto down or up it will go the opposite direction. Then the dome light wont come on sometimes when I open the door and I have to mess with the switch on the ceiling a little. That starting problem goes like this...Ill put the key fob in the ignition

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 HID kit problems... need some help

I posted this on Vortex but havent gotten any hard answers. Here is where Im at right now I installed my new HID kit on my 2006 passat. We turned on the xenon headlght option with our factory VW scan tool got rid of the relay harness that came with the kit but now my High beams no longer work. I then tried turning off the shutter option (adaptive factory xenon option byte 3 bit 4) w the scan tool but

Sorry for being outdated but I got a problem. i installed a HID xenon kit on the low beam on a b6 passat 2006 when the ignition was turned off all was good. When I started to drive the car and switched the high beam on the low beam xenons started flickering. Went back home said what the hell took another hid kit installed in on the high beam ( ) and seemed to work... until I started to drive the car

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 2006 Passat (BPY) AC cold air stops and starts 15-30 min later

I checked the refrigerant but its ok. I start the car and after running and blowing cold air for a while the cold air stops. Air still flows but its not cold. Then after another 15-20 minutes its starts blowing cold air again. Any leads will be greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance

I have recently begun having the same problems with my 2007 (56K mi). Short trips are fine but long trips result in lowered air flow and warmer temps I think too but hard to say since the airflow is so weak. Turning off the AC but leaving the fan on actually brought in cool air for a few min then I could turn the AC back on. I did this routine for a 5 hr ride fun. Once the sun went down and the outside temp dropped from 90 F to 78 F it seemed to run better -). I have also had trouble with the regular vent air. If I turned the temp controller knob up not even a quarter turn from cold it would get hot. I may ask the dealer about it at the next tuneup but I ran into AC trouble with my 2002 that could not be fixed. Since I needed a timing belt soon and brake work and they were offering a great trade in deal I gave them the 2002 for the 2007. Both cars have had ignition coil failures. Hoping to stay with VW...thoughts on the AC issues would be great.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 auto window roll down

Does yours work Its supposed to roll the windows down when you unlock the doors. Its a setting in your MFD setup under the convenience menu. You can set it to DriverAllOff. I tried both driver and off and neither work. Maybe its possible to enable with a VAG-COM

for my dealer to disable the trunk opening and for me to disable the roll down feature in the convenience settings. This is not convenient - but its better than offering the contents of your car to anyone who wants it. The REAL solution is a software modification Not to open the trunk if the car is locked (which it does I tried) and only to roll down the windows on command within 5 minutes of ignition

PONTIAC SOLSTICE So I bought a Volkswagen instead...

I know I know...let the lashings begin. I was one of the most excited people about this car. However as someone whos always carrying drums and mountainbikes I just couldnt justify waiting for the Coupe to come out and buying one. As desirable as it is I was lying to myself that it wouldve worked for me. Ooh Look A pie in the sky Dreams come and go I guess. So after much deliberation with some of the

As desirable as it is I was lying to myself that it wouldve worked for me. Ooh Look A pie in the sky Dreams come and go I guess. So after much deliberation with some of the money I had squirreled away for the Coupe I bought a 2009 VW Jetta 2.5 SE fresh off the showroom floor. I love it. Its extremely solid and the fit and finish is very impressive. Performance wise its very fun with the 5 Cylinder and handles tightly too. I nearly bought an 09 GTI but decided on the Jetta to get a little more practicality thrown in. As a former VW owner I couldnt resist the lure back to Germany. Ultimately Im very happy with my decision but maybe one of you kind folks can let me drool over your coupe when the day comes I guess its too late really to say anything... but my wife and I have had a number of Volkswagens. Right now my wife has a 2004 Volkswagen Beetle (that she bought new) and we also had a 2002 Volkswagen Jetta 1.8T Sport that we also bought new (which Volkswagen bought back from us after only 13k miles and 25 seperate trips to the dealership for repairs). We also own a 1973 Volkswagen Bus (which we will NEVER sell). So I guess you could more or less say we are loyal Volkswagen buyers but you would have been MUCH better off having bought the GTI. Volkswagen does a really good job of fit & finish in their vehicles... so when you buy them you REALLY think youre getting quality. But thats more or less far from the truth. After only a few years still really starts to break. The Jettas are some of the most unreliable cars that Volkswagen sells. I dont presume to understand it but all the Volkswagen Jettas and passats that are made in Mexico are more or less garbage. You can get the Wolfsburg edition which is actually a German import (comes with some special options and color combinations) and those are far more reliable. That said the GTI is made in Germany and is of far better quality than the Jetta. If youre still within the 3-day period... I would highly recommend returning it and buying the GTI instead. If you plan to keep this car for a long time I think youre going to kick yourself. Granted the GTI does make you look like a college kid (are you) and the Jetta is a bit more young adult young business man look... but the quality difference is NIGHT AND DAY. We have a guy at work that has a 2006 Jetta with the 2.5 five cyl and Im constantly driving him to the dealership to pick up his car. Its only a lease but Ive personally dropped him off about 6 times in the past year and I know hes asked a bunch of other people. Obviously I dont mind doing it... but its clear that there are huge problems with these cars. My wifes 2002 Jetta was a mess. It was a great car but we ended up taking it into the dealership 25 times in less than 13 thousand miles. They ended up just buying the car back from us. Granted this isnt the same model as what you have now... but VW still hasnt gotten their st together. My wifes 2004 VW Beetle Convertible hasnt been so bady... but luckily for us everything thats broken so far has been repaired under a recall (something with the air bags the windows falling into the doors the failed ignition coils etc...).
