Looking for workshop paper manual
I'm looking for a paper workshop manual for a B7 2011 vw passat .
I wanna buy a 2011 vw passat 2 litre turbo diesel. It has done 180000kms. I am concerned about any issues which may come with this high km. Is it still reliable or not?
In all honesty it's done a few miles so expect some maintenance. I would say if service done every 15000kms by VW or VW specialist it should be ok. Get a VW mechanic to check it out. In the uk it's common to see 90-120,0000 miles on the Passat around this age and they look pretty good.
Just make sure you get a german car specialist to look at it first. Not a vw dealer. They will also check the ecg gear that tends to clog up, especially if auto. They change at such low revs that engine doesnt work hard enough to burn off carbon deposits. But regular services and it'll last 200k km.
