Why do you continue to take it back to the VW dealer? Find another local garage that can help. I read your issue and to me it might be a fuel related and most times you won't get a CEL light.

It's very common for the fuel pumps to go bad in all Passat diesel cars, try checking that. It's located under the back seat on the passanger side.
