Have you had the recall for the coils done within the last year ?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Was done at schmelz countryside as a recall but im thinking the coils that the dealer installed may be defective
Expert:  vwtech0405 replied 6 years ago.
Ok we have seen many issues even with the new coils but since you have not replaced the plugs in so long I recommend you try this first if the plugs don't fix it then replace the coils . I hopefuls helps .

Approximately how much will it be to replace the coils and spark plugs on the 1.8 turbo passat? I am guessing the coils can be replaced for free as part of the recall and then the spark plugs.
Expert:  vwtech0405 replied 6 years ago.
About $150 for both thats spark plugs and the labor
