Bro! I didn't figure out that you have a Passat until Meghan told me!
You definitely should have at least a couple of ignition coils in your glove box. They will fail but it's no big deal: you just pull over and yank them one at a time and replace them with a new one until the engine stops running rough.
You should also check your engine mounts
It's awesome! And seems to be in excellent condition. Had my mechanic check it out. A few minor fixes, but basically very solid. One previous owner who did whatever VW service suggested. Complete service history. 100k. What year is yours? I'm sure you told me but I've forgotten.
2002 -- I think yours is either the same year or 2001. Do you have a stick?
It's a heck of a car--drives so nicely!
@monkey1 2004. 5-speed manual. 1.8L turbo. FWD.
Definitely a sweet ride. You also have some sort of positraction switch for winter that prevents a wheel from spinning independently of the other one. It is a life-saver!
Oh yeah. All manuals en route. Full service manual runs $100!
