      I'm in a similar situation ('08 2.5L auto), but the problem hasn't grown too bad yet. I'm at 95k now, so my fear is that it'll get worse and worse after the 100k coverage expires. It's tougher to...

      Chirping from Front Left Wheel

      I recently notice a very high pitched chirping coming from what sounds like my front left wheel area. The 'chirps per second' frequency definitely increases with wheel speed. From searches, it...

      Radiator Fan Issues

      I ran a scan of my car today after seeing the CEL and below is the readout. From what I've searched for and found, it seems like I need to replace the radiator fan 2 (V177). I popped the hood and...

      I prefer automatic just because I drive in a lot of traffic and I'm too lazy to want to be constantly shifting between 1st and 2nd. If I drove on more open roads, I'd prefer a manual.

      Isn't it I stayed a Holiday Inn Express last night? I know that because I'm both an engineer and I did actually stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

      Aero Eng here, which is close. You'll certainly work your tail off, but there are a lot of cool jobs out there (in theory, at least...). I get to throw stuff out of airplanes for a living.

      I've got a black Jetta and was considering the wolfsburg grill. My concern is that it'd look too 'murdered out'. In hindsight, I wish I had gotten a different color to begin with!
