SOURCE: VW PASSAT BRAKE COST!
ROTORS WILL RUN ABOUT $60-80 PER ROTOR. PREMIUM PADS RUN ABOUT $40-70 PER PAD. PLUS ABOUT 3-4 HOURS OR SHOP TIME AT AN AVERAGE OF $60-70 PER HOUR
I DO SUGGEST CALLING 3-4 OTHER SHOPS NEAR YOUR AREA AND GET AN ESTIMATE FROM THEM AS WELL.

the switch in the shifter lever is most likely worn out or miss adjusted remove the cover from around the shifter look for two contact switches where the up down shift is press gently do they click no replace them yes move the closer to the strike plate

Your power steering pump has gone bad. Consider replacing it. I had the same problem before.
It moans when u turn at a stand still but rolls freely when in motion?

Check the fluid level in the resevoir. If it is low then top it up. However, it went low for a reason - maybe it's just because your brake pads starting to wear out or you could possibly have a brake fluid leak.
If your in any doubt have a pro check it out.
