Need to have the codes read and see what the MIL is indicating. Could be any of 150+ different things from small to major.

I too just purchased a 2006 Passat. I've had it 2 weeks today & the MIL Light came on while driving home. Im very pissed off. If it is minor okay..but if not i guess l have to eat the cost to repair. Car is running great. Any guess as to what it could be??
