Carsguide Senior Journalist Richard Berry had this to say at the time: The Passat 140TSI Business wagon is one of the best excuses for not buying an SUV like seemingly everybody else.

Volkswagen Passat Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Passat here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Volkswagen Passat 2012: What does the flashing wrench indicator mean?
Hi Chloe, the wrench symbol is the service indicator light on this generation of Passat. I would take the car to your nearest licenced mechanical repairer and have them read the fault codes logged in the ECU, which is basically your car’s brain. Basically, when a part of your car stops working properly it sends an error message to the ECU, which has an error code it can display when the mechanic plugs their scan tool into the computer. This model Passat had an issue where the service light would come on, requiring the ECU’s software to be updated by the dealer. I’d take the car in and see what error codes come up as the first job.
Volkswagen Passat 2013: Is my car safe after a transmission failure?
There is little chance of anything else being damaged as a result of the transmission failure. I understand your concern about the safety of the car given your experience when the transmission failed and left you in a precarious situation, but the chances of it happening again are pretty slim now it has been repaired.

You can go to your dealer to get your key fob replaced, but without more information about your vehicle I can't guarantee how cheap it will be. If you don't want to go to your dealer to get your key fob replaced, check out this article for more options.
Volkswagen Passat 2006: Oil pressure dropping after top up?
It’s not related to the oil, the oil you used was correct. It shouldn’t lose oil pressure so quickly, if it does there is something going on within the engine that needs addressing. If the engine is making a bad sound, don’t drive it, and get a mechanic to check it.
