Hi
My '95 Passat estate seems to have developed a rougher ride, and I've started noticing that when I go through a bump, like a small pothole, it feels like the back of the car shifts sideways slightly...

I'm thinking I need to get the shocks looked at?

Thanks!

Colin

Sounds like failed rear axle bushes, quite a common problem and not too bad to do.

OK, will investigate that, thanks!

Presumably I shouldn't drive around with it like this?

Depends on how bad they are, get it inspected.
