      It sounds like Mercedes-Benz is bringing the V-Class to North America as the Metris:

      I wouldn't hold your breath, traditional "minivan" sales numbers are slipping, and I don't see VW tooling up a plant outside of the EU to make them. Plus, they'd probably have to offer a US-specific...

      I still like the Yokes overall, but the van's economy unsurprisingly was knocked down a notch over the Michelins, and they are a little louder at speed, but not annoyingly so. Traction on snow and...

      I spotted a prototype of Hyundai's forthcoming large van on Saturday morning, approaching the I-5 Tejon pass from the south.

      Nice. What makes it especially hard to let it go is the sheer lack of equivalent replacements. I plan on keeping my hardtop '01 MV for a very long time. Now if VW had continued to import these over...

      I'd suggest a 55 over a 50-series tire. A bit more sidewall for comfort - and much closer to the stock 225/60/16.

      Stock diameter = 26.6"
      225/55 diameter = 26.7"
      225/50 diameter = 25.9"

      (using...

      A friend of mine just picked up a Serron-equipped '14 Wolfsburg here in the San Diego area.

      They look great (far better than the Detroits from previous years), but I still prefer my Lagunas.

      I, too, had a tough time deciding between the two. But in the end, the GTI won out because of how much fun it is. Plus, I've already owned several Golfs, as well as VW diesels, but never a GTI. Since...

    18. Affordable source for EV sliding door guides?

      Hi all -

      I'm tired of my banged-up sliding door guide being worn out (and spraying silicone on the track frequently). Has anyone been able to find the center guide for significantly less than...
