      Man oh man.

      OK Mr. Trump, what about all those FCA assembly plants in Canada? Hmmmm? Another jagoff in the parade of idiots in the GOP race.

      First of all, I agree that the 2.5 is a great engine! But I after putting 160,000+ miles on my 06 GTI I have to totally disagree with the turbo lag thing. Maybe because I experienced turbo cars from...

      This ^^^^^. The way you checked your oil is not correct. See your manual for the correct way.

      The HV battery most likely will not drain....

      But your 12V battery will! Ask C-Max and Fusion Hybrid owners. If anything wakes up the CAN bus on a regular interval it will drain it.

      Interesting. Compared to my GTI, the car seems to not put out nearly as much heat, period unless it is on the last three "clicks" on the temp dial (I have an SE V6, not auto climate).

      In my GTI I...

      I saw that on Bring a Trailer last night. Thought that if someone was looking for one, this might be the one!

      This....

      I drove a loaded 2015 4 door sedan and I really liked it, even with an automatic. But around here rust is a huge concern with Mazdas.

      I wish aluminum rings were available a few years ago. Had terrible results with plastic ones. Tried three different sets of plastic ones.

      Yep, the V6 cars are pretty rare. Even new, I thought they gave you the best bang for the buck. Love the Fender system!

      I did drive a 1.8 TSI and was impressed with the engine. If I could have...

      I bought a set of Kumho Ecsta PA31 HP for my GTI and they are probably the best all around all-season tire I've purchased! Great prices too.
