    1. I think the main problem with this bill is that...

      I think the main problem with this bill is that it makes modifying your car illegal even if its used off the road. That's what people keep failing to realize and whether the EPA meant it or not...

      Valet had no idea how to use a clutch or manual transmission for that manner. You can hear him in the video revving the crap out of it at every take off. That is exactly what burns up the clutch...

      :screwy: How is it not a functional vehicle? Its runs and drives therefore is a functional vehicle. Seriously what you are saying makes no sense what so ever.

      Look at fuelly as that is real world data, not the EPA stuff which is notorious for being inaccurate.

      Overall average for a 2015 Golf TDI is 41.8MPG. The same exact Golf with the 1.4t is getting...
    5. The fuel pump failures seem to have no...

      The fuel pump failures seem to have no correlation to mileage. Some happen really early and other happen well after 200K.
    6. If you have a belly pan like you are supposed to...

      If you have a belly pan like you are supposed to then they don't corrode. People leave them off and salt gets sprayed up into the battery area and then bad things happen.
    7. 5W40 or 10W40 synthetic only and it must be...

      5W40 or 10W40 synthetic only and it must be changed every 5K miles on the 1.8t. Mk4s don't have nearly the sludge issues like the B5s had because they have a bigger oil pan and thus a larger sump...

      Sounds like someone is really butthurt and sounds like they are jealous they can't fix minor issues with their car...

      I do agree these cars were a bit troublesome when new but they were cutting...
    9. Nope, rear lca bushings once,...

      Nope, rear lca bushings once, struts/shocks/mounts once, rear axle bushings, and sway bar bushings twice. That's it.

      The lca bushings are a common problem and upgrading to solid tt/r32 ones fixes...

      The 2.0 is far from a sh!t engine. It slow and inefficient but very robust and reliable. Timing belt every 100K and they will run forever.

      As for the car, well I haven't seen any 15 year old...
    11. I drive 20K a year and a diesel VW is the only...

      I drive 20K a year and a diesel VW is the only way I can have a car that 1. gets good fuel economy, 2.goes a long distance on a tank of fuel, 3. lasts for a long time.4. Is comfortable to drive for...
    12. So the reality is that the car had two issues,...

      So the reality is that the car had two issues, leaking water and Bluetooth. I don't really consider the bluetooth a "problem" more like an annoyance. The leaking water was probably due to a seal not...

      The new EA288 is much more efficient than the older generation it replaced. DPF is now bolted right to the motor and it uses urea instead of heavy EGR which enables the engine to run lean and more...

      Idle IQ too low and/or failing DMF usually causes that.

      That is correct, its part of the MAF. You will need to replace the MAF in order to replace the sensor. Check and make sure the MAF plug is fully seated.

      If you have VCDS, it would be helpful to...

      Going by the way its worded, I have 3VWs registered to my address. Does that mean I can get $6K off? :eek:

      The thing is I do not know if the testing is consistent across all models. The NOX number the EPA got for the CR wagon was to load it full of passengers and drive it up a hill with the throttle at...

      I didn't think it was possible to make the new super duty even more fugly but I guess they succeeded. :facepalm:

      Best generation IMHO:

      The alternator pulley fails and then the belt gets sucked right into the timing belt causing the timing to jump. This has happened to several people. Usually the fix is just a rebuilt head...
