Reported by afarrelltx for the Volkswagen Passat TDI

While driving 40 mph in city, engine quit running. While cranking engine to restart it, a loud banging sound came from low in the engine. Engine would not restart. Suspected a failed, chain driven balance shaft module(common on the BHW engine). That was not the problem. Mechanic pulled oil pan and found crankshaft broken at the #2 cylinder, connecting rod journal. Purchased a used engine online. The shop did the BSM delete modification and ins...

So, in a 2012 CC R Line, 2.0L Turbo 4cyl, 22,000 miles - tires are dead due to cupping and the alignment of the car. The cupping causes road noise and it is due to the car's alignment of its tires. I have been told by the dealership that you need to rotate tires every 5k miles and ensure you have an alignment done EVERY oil change... or at least check it. good luck.

Reported by lycanmultimedia for the Jeep Wrangler

I own a 2006 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 6 speed manual transmission 6 cyl. 4.0L. The clutch pedal safety switch has broken loose from the firewall. This is a very common design flaw that Daimler Chrysler/Jeep has known about for decades but refuses to compensate owners for or do a recall on. Getto fixes include workarounds like placing a fuse into an empty fuse slot or bypassing the switch altogether. Along with that, the clutch pedal rod also...

My two back doors will not open. I already know that the latch needs to be replaced on the doors but what I really need to know is an average of what the cost will be. A lot of places will rip you a new a**hole and it would be nice to be able to point out which car repair shop would be that average.

I believe the hot dry climate of Az. made the handles brittle. After moving to Oregon the handles were subjected to conditions at the opposite end of the spectrum. No realm apparent solution other than using care if you make a similar move.

Reported by MWT for the GMC Sierra 2500 HD

Replace your exhaust manifold bolts stat, and get the new ones online or from O'Reilly (I think $15.99 or less for all 12) make sure grade 10.9 so they won't break off in your head. If you haven't fixed this yet don't let the dealer do the job or if you do provide the bolts as the ones they use will break shortly. I was going to get the bolts from the dealer because I wanted them quick and everyone else was sold out, but they were $6.99 each...

Reported by cmckissack for the Mercedes-Benz C350

The problem actually started with the battery going dead. Engine lamp came on. I didn't notice anything in particular with the engine other than that. After having the local Mercedes dealer examine the car they replaced the battery for $388 (P&L). They then reported that my intake manifold and gaskets needed to be replaced as well as the thermostat ($1562.87 + $443.05). After the shock wore off I went home.

Reported by MTK for the Nissan Murano

During a routine oil change and maintenance, Midway Nissan told me the head gasket was leaking and told me the price would be over $3000. I was aghast to have a major engine repair just outside of warranty. Looking on line, I seemed to be a fairly common problem due to poor quality/faulty gaskets used by Nissan during manufacture. I called Nissan expecting they would surely due something for me to protect their reputation (e.g. major engine r...

I purchased this vehicle because I was tired of purchasing used vehicles and having to make repairs all of the time. I have had to have the ignition coils replaced 2 times within the last year. This wouldn't be a bug deal if each coil wasn't $100+ to replace! I do not recommend this vehicle at all.
