      I assume you are referring to the "fuel door" and not the cap and neck. On my 2013 TDI SEL I found that the car doors have to be "unlocked" or the fuel door will not open when pushed.

      Within 2 days of taking possession of my 2012 Passat I had back-up sensors installed. The camera was not available in 2012 and I would not have taken the option if it was.

      Park the car facing up-hill or use a chamois/drying cloth to wick the water from the bottom of the mirror. It is a poor design.

      Allegedly Mazda is going to offer the CX-5 with a 2.2L diesel for 2013. If so, I donít see any reason for them not to offer the Mazda 6 in the US.

      We tried a TDI JSW and it was OK, but the seats were bad, those wings that stick out on the sides didnít feel right and I felt boxed in. The ride was stiff and it just seemed a little cheap compared...

      They don't look that bad, but to me it's just a piece of non-functioning junk I have to wash and keep dirt out of the mounting groove. And I can use the $375 to buy some really good scotch.

      For me a spoiler is a deal killer, if the car has one I won't buy it. Save the $375.00 (VW web site list price).

      I forgot to mention, white/lighter colors are really not that hard to keep clean,...

      It's the only diesel passenger car in my/this price range. Audi and Mercedes are a little too pricey for me.
