      My mom reads mysteries, and let me know one of the characters in one she's reading has a Fox. Specifically an...

      Yep, bypass it to get home (and then do the heater core before winter!) Bypass is pretty simple, maybe a foot or so of hose and two clamps. Doing the core is much more involved, but the bypass...

      Yeah, as many others have said, even the basic is cheap insurance if you have older cars. I have two old VWs, drive a long way in the middle of nowhere, and have used the towing many times. Add in...

      I was in a similar position. I have a fun car for the weekends and just needed an economical commuter.

      Seeing your "gravitating to" post, I'd say drive 'em all and see what feels best to you. ...

      Automatics and manuals are pretty much equal on fuel economy anymore; autos still seem to cost more to buy. You would think that would be a factor with penny-pinching kids. But their parents mostly...

      Hard to find; not looking forward to the next time it needs done.

      Looks like you're on the right track. Hope you are, anyway. Yeah, the fuel system looks different than ours. And vacuum is a big deal on these cars, so any little stuff like that is good to fix...

      Well, I might be wrong about the transmission then; in the manual there is a section about a different, sport-shift auto that I do not have. I assumed that was the DCT. I won't be creeping along...
