    I want to start this thread to see what kind of problems people have with their B5 1.8T. So far Myself, I had the following problem :

    The most recent one - cost CDN$2000
    - ABS Control Unit was shot, needs to be replaced
    - Oil leak around oil cooler unit
    - Head light spray nozzle needs to be replaced
    - Secondary air injection hose

    Previous One - CDN$700
    - Needed new gasket for rear differential
    - needed new gasket for for valve cover

    Older record - cost unknown
    - Tranny slipping, replaced entire tranny under warranty, the dealership claimed that the tranny cost AOA CDN$14000
    - Door doesn't open - some mechanical issue with the inside panel
    - Radio (Symphony II) was replaced
    - Fuel tank lock - Pressure unit rusted out, unit will not unlock
    - Secondary air injection valve - stay open, replaced under warranty
    - Oil pump - Vehicle consistenly reports low oil while there is oil
    - Heated seat - Gets extremely hot even set to 1 (though could be a good thing for the winter here /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif)
    - Vaccum hose - Wear and tear
