I also have a 1999 VX passat GLX. I had the same problem last year and had it repaired. It was around $1,000 in the Chicagoland area.
Good Luck

Check the idler arm and pittman arm, then the tie rod ends for ANY play. The pittman arm is the one on the steering gearbox that connects to the tie rod, and the idler arm is the one that connects from the tie rod to the frame. Replacing the parts is a pretty inexpensive and straightforward job, but you will need to have the wheels re-aligned afterwards.

First check your tyre pressures.If they check out ok, try wheel alignment.The fact that your steering wheel does not centre may mean its had new track rod ends or steering rack and hasn,t been aligned properly.

30% of a brake pad is still quiet a fair bit, unless you drive and use performance pads.

dealerships do say alot to make money from there customers,

if you stick to speed limits or a little bit over with no harsh braking and down gearing for cornering you will be fine with the 30% left on the pads, get them sorted when you come back though or after a week or so of being back :)

Very uneven tyre wear - wearing on both inside front tyres


Uneven tyre wear is caused by either worn bushes or incorrect tracking.

It sounds as though your car is 'toe in' and needs the wheels tracking - aligning. Take it to a tyre fitting bay - it doesn't cost much to have it checked/rectified.

I have a 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis with alignment problems causing tire wear. I had it realigned in the fall last year 2011 and months ago it's been steering to the left again... Just had it real


In the UK we would say 'have the car tracked' .. the wheel alignment checked and adjusted, which is a relatively straightforward and easy job.

However, be aware that there are other causes of tyre wear which isn't rectified by having the wheels aligned.

A bent or damaged steering arm can cause tyre wear. I once owned an old Mercedes that quickly wore one front tyre. Despite having the wheels tracked - aligned - three times, the tyre still wore. It wasn't until I looked under the car myself and found a damaged steering arm ...

A worn ball joint or worn/soft rubber bush can cause tyre wear. Having the wheels aligned cures nothing without first identifying the fault. I own a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee which, I am aware, has worn rubber bushes in the front steering/suspension set up. The front tyres wear badly, caused by the worn bushes. The tyres need replacing soon anyway, but I'll wait to get the tracking-alignment- done until after I've replaced the rubber bushes/tyres.

You've had wheel alignment done a couple of times and the problem of worn tyres is still there. It's not the wheel alignment at fault .. there's some other reason such as worn ball joint/rubber bushes or maybe impact damage to a steering arm.

The best option is to get a workshop to put the car up on a hoist for inspection. Tell them that wheel alignment ISN'T the cause of your uneven tyre wear. Any half-decent workshop should be able to find the cause within a few minutes.

A car which has suffered severe side impact - and has been repaired - can have a twisted/misaligned body. This too can cause uneven tyre wear

Squeeky brakes and tire maitanence light on. I only have 32000 miles on my 2009 murano.


first check your discs and pads to see if pads are worn down or there are any score marks on the disks, also the metal antivibration shims in front of the brake pads for wear and tear.check tyres for wear wrong tyre preasures/unballanced, and steering problems can cause exesive wear on tyres.
