I have a 2013 Passat. It seems to be running harder than normal. 40 mph can put the rpm's at 4. This just started today but at 50 mph the car seemed to be struggling and the rpm's were between 4 and 5


Asked by Jun 30, 2016 at 07:39 PM about the 2013 Volkswagen Passat

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Something doesn't feel right, but I don't know if I should even drive it to work
tomorrow. It has 47,000 miles and just had the oil changed by volkswagon
dealership in the past two months.
