Question about 2006 Volkswagen Passat
Hello, Recently my GLS 6spd. with 39k smoothly stalls less than 1 sec. after releasing the starter. I pop the key out and try again. After 1 to 3 tries, it starts normally. It's a leased car with turn in in 8mos. so unless it quits altogether, I'll live with it. Taking an intermittant problem to a dealer is too often a waste of time. Thanks, Dan
You almost have to treat these 2.0T vw's like a diesel, mine does the same start stall game. I find that if you just put the key in and let it go through its system checks it somehow makes this problem stop. I always jump in and justy fire the car right up, then it started doing the stalling problem. i started putting the key in the dash the whole way without starting it, letting the yellow steering wheel light go out and let it quit doing all its dings and whatnot. then start it and havnt had the problem since

I had this same problem with my 2006 Passat 2.0L T w/24K miles (actually would take as many as 12 times to start) - it's currently at the dealer and they are replacing the entire steering column - glad it's under warranty.
