      Good list.

      I did have a loaner Pilot when Oddy was in for service. They are 2 different classes. Pilot space after the 2nd row is way way smaller. Wouldn't work for us on daily basis. But I...

      Pay close attention to what happens to trunk space with 3rd row up. Someone already mentioned the lack of space with Durango In the back. This will be the case with all these SUVs unless you go with...

      I really like the looks of these and went in to buy a DC version. I just found the seats too uncomfortable with no height adjustment and short cushion. Ended up trying the Tundra too and drove away...

      Lots of stock STIs blow up way before 100k miles, quite a few 2015 GTIs have blown turbos right off the bat. Any car from any make can have a catastrophic failure early. I don't frequent the Fiat...

      I also like the redesign but haven't driven one myself. Maybe it's a non issue in day to day driving with a better TQ curve. Still a 170hp car shouldn't be faster than a 245hp one (same class)

      Basically like the STI. You can order one any time. But Canada only gets 400-500 per year so you CAN get lucky and claim one on the way over already or you have to put an order in and wait 8-12...

      Funny thing is I have a huge problem when it comes to cars. I'm on my 25th car and get a different one every 6-12 months. I've owned a GTI, 335, 2 WRXs and an STI. I've never put anything other...

      It actually does not require 91. It says right on the website that premium is recommended for max performance, not required. The loss of power will be around 5-8whp with regular gas.

      Lots of late model Toyta/Lexus, Honda/Acuras drive around with no lights on at all around here. This is mostly due to poor dash design where the cluster is lit up bright all the time and makes...

      That is pretty strange. The Canadian version (vw.ca) has a fully functioning build tool that's actually pretty good to use. Including lease/finance payment estimators. Why would USA version not...

      I picked up a ZHP last month and previous owner had just bought brand new Contis. He did also give me a set of pretty worn Hankook Icebears. I wonder if I'm better off with new Contis or fairly...

      His turbo failed. VWOA can easily point to the tune and refuse coverage and they would be well within their right to do so.

      However, it looks like they are having big issues with these turbos...

      Fair enough. I just assumed since his dealer is mod friendly he wouldn't have issues with that first step.

      VWoA are the ones who would be causing issues with warranty denial. The dealer would submit a claim to have the warranty work done. They get reimbursed by VW. Now in most cases VW approves, but...

      I had dedicated winters on 2 of my WRXs and they don't prevent you from having fun at all. These cars have more than enough power to slide around even with snows on.

      He's not. I felt the interior wasn't any better, but this was from only a few minutes spent inside. I think what threw me is the steering wheel, it's a better design in the mkvi imo. It is...
