      Nice but we've seen this before. VW should concentrate on getting this launched ASAP instead of continuously showing it. It's going to be old and dated by the time it makes it to market at the...

      I wouldn't call 6.8 seconds pathetic and these cars are not targeted to compete with one another. The Chrysler is a family car and not a compact sedan. The AWD on the Chrysler uses a wet clutch...

      Haldex 5 can completely decouple the rear wheels if there is no traction at the back so while technically incorrect, I think the default split is 5 or 10 percent to the rear in the S3. In a...

      Well, I wasn't taking to you. Noticed I quoted the OP who said something to the effect that they wished the SEL had a manual. The OP also has a TDI.

      No all new Tiguan will be on the US market for MY2016. The EU might get one but not here. As with the Golf, I suspect a build out will be done to keep the US stocked with old product while VW...
