Hello long time vw diesel nut. It all started with an 81 rabbit diesel pickup in college (2009). 10+ vw diesels in stock now most in need of repairs or scavenged. 3 mk1 pickups, 1 91 Jetta eco diesel, 2 mk4 alh wagons on the road. B4v tdi x2. Many parts mk4 Jettas and a golf

Now I'm in the market for a new b7 Passat tdi. Leaning towards a manual. Looking for experience with these rigs as I am faithful to my mk4 wagons but growing family = bigger car (want a Passat wagon but alas no b7 wagons in USA).
Questions:

1. What are the problem areas with the b7 rigs besides emissions equipment.

2. I read vw is extending the warranty on emissions equipment for 120k miles. Any details on that?

3. is there a timing belt write up for the b7?

4. Is this as bad idea I see them for $6k with autos and around $8-10 with a 6 speed?

Thank you in advance luke

Welcome to the forum.


Its nice to see you made an intro on your own. ;)

This is a new forum layout with loads of bugs which have been reported in the new thread. There is no TDI Wiki at the moment or or original similes. It doesn't show the car spec/location or signature properly either

We Are Live - Community Feedback

This has been talked about many times.

I've made a pole which no one has posted in, there are a few votes but no comments.

Do you like the new forum features?

Hello Keith glad to see I got your approval and best wishes.

Do you recommend I post my question on a new thread? I only found one major problem and that was clogging heater cores.

I'm not sure what is in TDI Wiki until it comes back.

Ok that was another question I had. Is there an estimated time table on that fix? Thank you in advance
Guesstimated time, how long is a piece of string? Its up to admin to get their finger out as they installed this crap new site without doing a Beta run first to iron out any problems..

Hello!

Just to warn you, this site's premium section (wiki, as its called) is gone. The mods do not have a timeline for getting it back.

I have been, and will be harassing them until it's fixed.

Don't pay for anything until it's fixed!
