      VW's been working on this for as long as I've been on the Vortex. If Mazda beats them to the punch that's a strong endorsement to staying focused on one thing rather than trying to do everything.

      Someone who does their own wrenching, likes how it drives and how much space it has, has no problem with the headlights, and didn't need to ask your permission ;)

      FWIW it's the only ECM failure I'm aware of. He also noted that the reason it cost $4000 was that the dealer spend a lot of time and replaced a lot of parts tracking the issue down. I wouldn't worry...

      That looks like the sedan part.

      The part numbers for the outer tail lights for the wagon are 3C9945095P (left) and 3C5945096J (right).

      My friend was in the same position as you 6 months ago (baby #3 has since arrived) and they found a 2010 Yukon Denali XL with about 65k on it for around $25k. It's got the 6.2 V8, air suspension,...

      Uh, I don't think I'd go back there. The 3.6 doesn't have a timing belt, that's the pre-2008 2.0T. The 3.6 has a timing chain with no prescribed service interval (just change it when the guides or...

      If the life of components and fuel mileage (and performance I heard) aren't affected that must mean they're going to be replacing the system with significantly more robust components. They could have...

      VAG will gladly take your money all the same. But they've got to offer something for the plebes with budgets that max out at $35k.

      Major suckage! Glad you're OK.

      Usually front airbags = total, but with such a new car the cost probably won't reach your insurer's threshold for a total loss.

      This was in Denver. If you don't change these fluids you'll drastically shorten the life of your transmission and Haldex unit. They really are must-do items.

      Sounds like ECS put the wrong fasteners in the kit, but good for them for making it right.

      That was no r36. And he'll probably do the same thing as he did with the Passat: make a big stink about the issue and the dealer's response to it, then get a mod to black hole the thread as soon as...

      Careful: there are dozens of sellers on Amazon with similar-looking parts. I got one last year only to find it wasn't compatible with the version of Bluetooth on my phone.
