      Actually, I am.

      I am thinking about trading my (perfectly fine, zero problems) Golf TDI with an EV, while getting an all-new Jetta/Golf wagon to replace my Passat. Preferably an AWD TDI...

      Diesel has been cheaper than premium (what I would drive, otherwise) all this year, and has been cheaper or equal to regular all year round. Since I get much, much better mileage on Diesel, and...

      100% chance if I had the same convincing and bottom-line successful influence on the program manager that I had a few years back... :(:(

      Yeah, really.

      Here, most stations carry Diesel. And with a range of 500 - 600 miles highway or country roads, it's not that I have to ever sweat it, anyway.

      But, more importantly, Diesel has...

      My son's mountain bike (he is an adult) fits just fine in my Golf with front wheel on - although it is more difficult to get it in and out than with my previous MkIII. :confused:

      We have had all...

      Congrats, good choice.

      I did not even know you owned a BMW. You change cars more often than I by T-shirts.

      I agree with the general sentiment that Diesels are about as efficient as (sometime...

      Another entry point for water is a clogged drain where the battery tray is located. There should be two drains, each covered with a rubber grommet that is supposed to prevent splash water from...

      Many of us who have driven manuals for decades just love the additional control it gives you.

      Outside of medical issues or largely stop-and-go commutes, I see no reason to drive an automatic -...

      A couple of us here have had the problem of the driver's side control of the passenger window not doing a one-touch full close or full open due to rain hitting the switch right in the wrong spot. ...

      Assuming it is similar enough to my MkVI, just don't let the clutch go at start without a bit of go-pedal. More so with A/C and additional passengers. These engines need a bit sensitive treatment...

      That's understandable, and many feel the same way, but that's how it goes. With a German manufacturer, you typically need to wait at least 6 months, sometimes longer, before prices drop...

      I'd probably try the most recent 2.slow or better 2.5 MT Golf you can afford, for reliability and longevity. I own a 2000 B5 Passat wagon (2.8 AWD), and everyone will tell you that they require some...

      Seems that not only Motor Trend but also Car and Driver really liked the GTI with PP.

      Conversely, I'd recommend a newish 2.5 Rabbit/Golf with the 170 hp engine. The most reliable car VW has built, so far, and also a pretty peppy one, at that. :thumbup:

      I would not get anything but the PP LSD if my daily or weekly drive involved tight corners or twisty hill runs. The LSD also helps in the mountains under adverse conditions - be it leafs,...

      I guess if you cut them up a bit you can build (play-) castles out of them. :thumbup:

      Well, the fact that it was still "hip" to advertize by stressing Monsanto origin is a bit of a chronological give-away... ;)

      Saw the first one not parked, but driving +- alongside me for about 1/2 hour today. Presence has definitely improved - it's not a car you can overlook any longer. I know opinions vary, but I am not...
