      "If your vehicle has a problem proven to be caused by our fuel..." Good luck proving that fuel caused the problem. They'll be quick to blame the pump design and reference the NHTSA investigation.

      I've had mine since June, 2010 and haven't had any issues. It sounds like FM and SAT buttons were switched somehow. Pressing the FM button twice will toggle the presets, just as you've observed.

      It's rarely discussed because it's not mandatory to replace. The maintenance guide simply states that the DPF ash load should be checked at 120,000 miles. There's many owners above 120,000 miles...

      All the emissions equipment makes it difficult to hear the turbo spooling. It's normal to not hear the turbo very well in modern turbocharged vehicles.

      I believe Borg Warner makes the CR TDI...

      This. You'll pay a little more for Podi but it's worth it. Their column pods are like OEM and gauge is so much cleaner.

      I've tried New South and Podi and am much happier with the Podi gauge.

      I agree that the issue is overblown but there has never been any warranty extension on the HPFP. All claims are handled case by case.

      OP, you should be able to ask the dealer for the detailed...

      I don't disagree with this. The 1.4 TSI/Hybrid combo sounds better than any other competing hybrid out there. I'd just like to hear more opinions about it and possible try it out myself. I plan to...

      Trying to compare fuel savings between these cars is a wash. TDIs shine on the highway but diesel is more expensive. The hybrid is less expensive to maintain but the long-term durability is...

      Mine has done the same since new. I'm curious what the problem could be as well. Sometimes it doesn't work and others it does. There have been occasions where it could have caused a lot of harm. ...

      Yes. It's a VW spec oil and only certain manufacturers carry an equivalent. I use Mobil1 ESP. 5 liters costs me about $60 from the store. I believe you can find it a little cheaper though if you...

      2010 will give you updated electronics, gauge cluster, and most likely a better head unit if you find the right package. As far as engines there are pros and cons for each year. Not sure if you're...

      Next maintenance (30,000 km) will be even more because it includes a fuel filter change. The 60,000 km maintenance is even higher if you have a DSG.

      I don't see that being an issue. The down tube clamp and rear straps are adjustable. The slot for the rear wheel runs the entire length of the rack too so I would imagine any size bike would fit.
