Hi Everyone, happpened across this site while googling for info on how to change a headlight bulb on my 2005 VW Passat TDI. What an awesome site, incredibly helpful. Look forward to inteacting with everyone here for a long time as my TDI is a "keeper". I bought it new 5 years ago this month, it's never been in a VW dealer yet, have had all the service done to spec by a local shop. Ron:D

Thanks for the introduction. Look through the 2004-2005 VW Passat TDI new owner checklist and buying guide in the FAQ section. There are some things in there which you may not have heard before and important service intervals like the timing belt. One common reliability modification is to replace the oil pump/balance shaft. These have been noticeably problematic with higher miles and failure will result in a damaged engine. Other than that these are pretty reliable cars, welcome!
