      GF's has a 2.5, has the typical 2.5 problems so far. Leaky valve cover gasket and a leaky vacuum pump gasket. I ordered the gaskets for $22 total and will be getting to that and an oil change come...

      Besides Subarua CVTs, Honda transmissions are the most finicky I've heard of. Lots of money shifting due to suddenly broken forks/linkage, (just look up any moneyshift compilation and it's mainly...

      Does it have to be a '19 or '20? What about a CPO Audi A3, Golf/Golf Sportwagon? The Mazda 3 is a good choice. I test drove one, just didn't have enough power for me to comfortably drive it. I had to...

      The Bug is definitley dead (wouldn't be surprised to see it again though) the golf wagon is probably going to come back in a year or two though. I see plenty Alltracks up here in Minnesota, and lots...

      The only ones that upset me are the CTS-V and the Beetle. Though, all of these ending production make sense. They're not selling, we (TCL) may enjoy seeing the Beetle, CTS, Golf-wagon (which might...
    6. Has anyone else looked at a dyno graph for these...

      Has anyone else looked at a dyno graph for these things? 140wtq is about all it'll do on 93. And the torque curve is flat, 175whp too. I don't see it making anywhere near 250bhp without a turbo. The...

      I suppose a vehicle that is essentially two boxes strapped together isn't very aerodynamic. However, with CVTs (as much as I hate them), why couldn't it work? Surely the HR-V would use more fuel than...

      I won't pull over for an unmarked car. Told my significant other to do the same. Call up the station first to verify that it's actually an officer, have your hazards on and drive slow until you're...

      My TDI is "DieselGate" as per the DSLGATE vanity plate. Used to be "Diesel Baby" (License plate DSL BBY) due to my ex, when we split ways, I renamed it as part of the "healing process."

      Fiancee's...

      Don't forget about the VW/Audi (and BMW even) 12 year rust warranty. Completely transferable too. Find a 2009 or later somewhat rusty example, let the dealership deal with it for a couple weeks, and...

      Yeah, 17" touch screen, and only a brightness and (I believe) a dark mode setting. It's not the end of the world, but if I'm buying a $100k+ "future car".

      And while yes, there are blue-light...

      I also gotta ask, have you tried the newborn's car seat in the back of a proper sedan? The sloping roof can make you bend a bit more than is comfortable for me (6'1"). My Fiancee has a 4 door VW...

      Mk6 Golf R? I've seen a few for around that price. Kind of curious as to why a 4 door GTI wouldn't do it for you. Just need something different? A GLI is a nice sidestep and will be familiar when you...

      What range do you need? An e-golf might be a fantastic fit for practicality, CPO, and price. They're getting cheap now for some of the earlier models. You could buy an e-Golf, Leaf, and an older...

      Malone Stage 2, DPF/EGR delete. I got 48mpg going 75mph while driving home from my parent's over Christmas. Car had a bunch of stuff in it, I recently got the tune done so I'm still enjoying WOT from...

      Instant torque and a manual transmission is the reason I might always have a TDI in my life. I can't think of another DD vehicle that would drive the same. Though the M2 Competition is quit...

      I heard a figure that Tesla pays more on warranty work per car than Mercedes' does. Is this still true?

      My 2011 went through one DPF, my commute is really short right now which is bad for interrupted regens. I called a couple local dealerships and one verified that they'd cover everything even after a...

      What were the mileages of those "17 years" though?

      Did you lease each one? Keep it until 80k? The "Subie Standard" for headgaskets is 125k miles.
    20. I would like to see the code explained for these...

      I would like to see the code explained for these exact situations. I like Merc's gutsy stance by coming right out and stating that the driver will be prioritized over pedestrians. Would like to see...
