      You must be careful though... German cars only run well on Jews.

      I had that happen as well on my GLI. It threw misfires in cylinders 3 and 4, then it mellowed out and went back to normal until it threw a code for the cat. It has been sitting at the dealer waiting...

      You're in the wrong section. Try the mk5 or mkv forums.

      However, I will say that I had the P0442 code on my GLI and it is now getting the cat replaced.

      It's not bad overall. Just think the fuel economy and anemic feel of the 2.5 sucks. I haven't driven the new 1.8 in the passat but I hope it is better. It felt better in the jetta I drove with the...

      I was approaching time for the 30k service on my 13.5 GLI. I was within a couple hundred miles of the service when my car decided to run like a Subaru and throw multiple misfire codes. Those lasted...

      As I said, I can't get excited about it. But if I was looking for a Japanese family sedan then this would be at the top. I prefer the 2014 Camry SE despite being automatic only but since I'm not...
