      As to fuel prices, premium gasoline is around $3.30 these days, in the Bay Area, while 53+ premium cetane Diesel is about $2.60. It has been much like this for most of this year.

      I just rented a Dodge Charger (only a $15/day upgrade from a compact [Midsize in rental speak], since I had a free upgrade to a mid-sized car [Standard or Full-size in rental speak]). It's...

      Looks like you have an early MkVI - like mine. See wikipedia.com for all golf models.

      Reliability-wise the Chevy is rated above the Focus, but quite below the Corolla or Civic. From driving experience, I would rate it below the Focus and almost about the same as the Jetta, but quite...

      Sorry, that is an invalid inquiry asking for a refurbished carburetor for your car.

      Wrong year.

      Computing.

      Did I hear your date and time, correctly?

      I apologize - it appears you made...

      You got it wrong, the size comparison. And this car is and will be unobtainable in much of the world.

      Also, "Honda claims that the new Type R rockets from 0 to 62 mph in 5.7 seconds... The rear...

      But how do you know the driver is good at RWD and AWD vehicles? Because, he clearly is not, and modern FWD vehicles are much easier to drive.

      The unobtainable Type R is a great vehicle, but also...

      Quite a number of people have had intermittent control issues due to water ingress. For example, every time I adjust my left mirror, the door lock control freaks out.

      I would try some contact...

      That sounds like Canada pricing.

      Golfs are below $20,000 to slightly above, in the US - depending on models.

      I paid $25,000 with all the equipment I listed - but that was for a MkVI when they...

      No - not right now. Has been like that all year. And Diesel has been less than premium here since I have owned the car, on average (more than 5 years) - and premium (91!) is usually only 5% more...

      Well, with current Diesel prices in California, pretty much nothing, at all.

      I also got the-then tax credit for Diesels, and mine, considering the standard equipment was so well-equipped (large...

      Sorry, you are wrong on all accounts.

      All my VWs have been more reliable than their competitors or similar, at the time. And all my mpg have been confirmed paper and pencil. Sorry if you had a...

      Currently, here:

      Regular (89): $3.39
      Premium (91): $3.71
      Diesel: (53+ cetane) $2.97

      Well, apart from the fact that Diesel has been less expensive than regular, this year, here, you are also wrong about VW and Diesel reliability. E.g., the 2.5 Golf is a Consumer Reports darling with...

      Did you buy or lease the vehicle? If you bought it, definitely your insurance should be your point of contact rather than the dealer, and keep asking.

      Well, it used to be a common issue with MkIII and MkVI Golfs. Haven't heard about this in MkV and MkVI Golfs - so I would argue very uncommon issue.

      No idea what that means, but in the past I have gotten deals $500 to $2,000 better than market value - let alone MSRP. YMMV, and your sales qualifications may vary.
