I just had my tranny fluid flushed, so I know a bit about this. The tranny in the Passat is a sealed unit which means that you can't check the fluid level without having to lift the car, breaking the seal between the tranny pan and body and then check. I don't reccomend this. Also how many miles does the car have? If it isn't leaking and it has fairly low miles, under 55k for example your fine. Mine has 82k and the fluid was really low and really dirty. Hope this helps

there is no dip stick unfortunately but there is a place under ur car that you can check the fluid and again unfortunately this job need to be done by mechanic or you need to lift the car and have some tools which you can easily find on YouTube
