      It was certainly a pre-production vehicle, as production isn't slated to start until some time in January IIRC. Now, whether that has any bearing on the materials, I can't say. Generally, most...

      Audi design continues to be a snooze fest.

      I've never heard anything but glowing praise for the D5, but I have no first hand knowledge since it isn't offered in the NA market. IIRC, it's still mated to the same 6spd auto trans as the other...

      That is not my experience. Transmission failures on the 6spd TF80 automatics is extremely rare.


      The new XC90 is all-new, so it would be tough to project what the ownership experience will be...

      This came through my shop a couple months back. (KM). You're good to go. The non-turbo is a workhorse & I wouldn't be surprised if you got another 300+ out of it.

      I don't think we're getting an Ocean Race V60, but the XC60 Ocean Race should arrive in the next couple months. :thumbup:

      They're all Aisin units, except the GM 4T65 in the 2003-2006 XC90 T6 & 1999 - 2006 S80 2.9/T6 cars. The earlier 5spd cars were the AW55, while the 2005+ R's got the newer 6spd TF80 units. The non-R...

      For June-August they replace it with Blackflies & Mosquitos.

      The new Drive-E 4cyl won't be mated to AWD until the next generation of cars built on the SPA platform, starting with the XC90.

      The XC70 & S80 will be replaced by S90 & V90 cars, (with a Cross...

      They're using MPI to generate that inspection form. I absolutely hate using MPI. It forces you to use a generic Pass/Caution/Fail, with generic descriptions like "Serpentine Belt Cracked" even if...

      :thumbup:

      I think it's a ploy to sell more tires when they put the new ones on the rear. The difference in traction for 99% of the driving population is moot IMHO.
