2001 Volkswagen Passat Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 112015

Passat GLS 1.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 144,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Thermostat stuck open and engine temp never reached full operating temperature.

Heat still available, but made de-icing window slower in winter.

Probably affected fuel economy, but not noticably.

Still ran sweetly.
