      VW has not been involved in the takata recalls at all, just FYI. The website for checking recalls doesn't seem to work very well either.

      The variable valve lift on the exhaust does change based on engine load, in my car it tends to switch over to full open around 3,000 RPM under normal acceleration, so that may be what you're feeling....

      I've never read about a failure of the rear diff or mounts from someone who did not drive the car hard on a consistent basis. I'm not saying it's never happened, but I've owned a MS6 for 2.5 years...

      I don't want to look up the description for each code right now, but the symptoms sounds like intake valve carbon build up and/or bad intake manifold. If the CEL is flashing, that indicates a...

      If that was the case, an open differential would spin both tires. That isn't the case. One tire will spin while the other is essentially free-spinning. This is where the term "one tire fire" comes...

      In for some info. I've been wondering the same thing. I have an S w/ LP, so no rain/light sensor. I actually have an auto switch installed from an SE, but the auto position is useless. Will a...

      Oil change, tire rotation, cabin air filter. That's pretty much it besides topping off fluids and inspecting the vehicle.

      It actually should help as the differential will transfer torque back and forth between the wheels as needed to maintain as much grip as possible. Are the wheels still going to spin? Yes, but chances...

      The turbo failures seem to be popping up less and less, so I wouldn't be too worried. We still have yet to see a single GTI with a failed turbo at our dealership.

      The one we received came with every accessory, clutch assembly, turbo, engine harness, etc. already installed, so there really isn't much to mess up. It's essentially undoing coolant lines,...

      Did your car come with the bridgestone summer tires? The stock pirelli all season will spin through 1st and some of 2nd on a stock car. The bridgestones I have on my car do very well, even with the...

      Direct injection engines are going to see more fuel dilution by design. It's pretty common, even on different platforms. The fuel is being injected at ~3000 PSI directly into the combustion chamber,...

      Interesting. Volkswagen has not released any information to dealers via Elsa yet. Normally they give us some advance notice. I'll post more info if I'm able to find any.

      We have a car at our dealership with very similar problems. The initial complaint was the clutch pedal was stuck down to the floor. That was looked at, then the car was picked up. About a week later...
