The Volkswagen Passat Mk6 was introduced in May 2005 as both a 4-door saloon and 5-door estate. Turbodiesels included 1.9- or 2.0-litre units. A five- or six-speed manual gearbox was fitted as standard to all models, with a six-speed DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox) automatic transmission available as an option on most 2.0-litre models. A wide range of standard and optional equipment was available within the model range to suit most tastes, including an anti-lock braking system and air-conditioning. Our repair manual for the VW Passat is here to help you through every stage of servicing or fixing your car.
