      I didn't notice that. I still own my GLI and I'm at almost 9 years of ownership (purchased 10/05) but only 85K.
    2. Door wiring harness lawsuit? Just got letter

      I got a letter about a class action lawsuit for owners of 2005/06 Jettas about the driver's door wiring harness. I searched here and found two threads:Door wiring harness too short and one for a...

      Edited: re-read your post and realized I needed more coffee. My reading comprehension early in the morning is not good without caffiene. Oops!

      IIRC, Jamie stated that VW wants to move most models to MQB as fast as possible. I believe he said they've been talking about accelerating new model intros so they can utilize the cost savings of MQB...

      1. That just looks like a restyled Jetta. Where's the coupe styling elements?
      2. That's the Cross-version, right? IB4lowerit

      Children have been killed by power windows. It's rare, but it happens. That's why manufacturers no longer put 'rocker style' switches on door panels; small kids would step on them while hanging out...

      Wait a minute, if BOTH lights are going out at the same time, isn't the problem at the switch or ECU and not at the headlight itself (frayed wires or not)? If the wires are frayed on both sides,...

      Interesting question. Honestly: I'm not sure. I'm 40 now, so this happened a long long time ago. You tend to 'fuzz out' the bad memories and focus on the good ones. It was tough for early-teen me,...

      If the repairs exceed the monthly payments for multiple months, then yeah, you might want to consider unloading. What else has gone wrong on your car? Right now in my household we have a 2007 Saab...

      Incorrect. You can get the 1.8T in a manual. I'm not sure if you can get a *Premium* model in a stick, but you can get the regular 1.8T Beetles with a three-pedal transmission.

      While I don't have a Beetle, or a car with frameless windows, just a couple of thoughts:
      1. My windows have frozen up on my framed window car. Granted I park outside 100% of the time and the temp...

      I'm not going to win any friends with this one, but dude, this all sounds like you're making a big deal out of what is just a used car repair. If a brake line popped on your now 8 year old car, would...

      My paternal grandmother died from ALS. She had the rare "bulbar onset" ALS; it was horrible.

      We didn't see my paternal grandparents very often, maybe twice a year, but I vividly remember how it...

      I miss going to that show. I took 2nd place some years ago when I had my retro-styled New Beetle. I'm not sure when I'll get to go back to COVVC: that's a HUGE weekend for my business in my...

      You can remove the strut pucks yourself. It's been documented here a bunch of times. If the dealership didn't remove them the first time they might not know how to look for them this time either.
