      I SOOOO wish we still had access to the European version of the Passat. I'd jump on one in second. Sweet ride.

      What I did was extend the headrest up all the way and then wrap some clear shipping tape around the posts where I wanted the height set to. It may not be the best, but it has kept the headrest from...

      Does anyone know if the R-line can be had with tan interior for Grey or Silver exterior? In 2012 when I got my SEL, the Grey and Silver could be had with tan interior. I prefer that over black. But...

      I once purchased an extended warranty on my A4. At the end of the extended period, I think I came out about even. At the time, I was concerned about the timing belt as the tensioner was a problem....

      Not sure I totally agree with that. Look at the Jetta. The first year of the new jetta, VW chose to decontent the car. Rear drum brakes, lost independent rear suspension, very cheap interior...

      Yup, this does this on my 2012 SEL. I live at the top of a long hill. So I run into this every single day. I just pop the tranny into Tip mode and then it doesn't do that any longer. Once I'm at the...

      I also have a 2012 SEL. Only issue so far has been one of the HID lamps went and was replaced under warranty.

      The 19" Savanah's on the SEL may not be the best for your winters. You may want to...

      So I took the Tig to the dealer to look into why the Adaptive headlights stop being "adaptive".

      They told me that I had them turned off. Apparently there is a way to set them on or off in the...

      I agree. I like the idea behind the names. Now, for a VW enthusiast like me, we already know that VW names come from specific meaning to describe the car. I like that.

      I disagree. The quality of the interior materials are much better then the competition. Is it as stylish? No. But that's what I like most about the German brands. They have more reserved styling that...

      I have the same car. I have to say I like it. Fun to drive with the sportier (stiffer) suspension and 19" Savannah wheels. I think for 2015 though you have to get the R-line to get the wheels. Not...
