      However, the valves are designed to clean themselves.

      The only problem is that this only occurs at extended high operating temperatures. So, unless you have an Autobahn or hill range in your...

      The new Golf/Jetta wagon is about the same size as my ~15-year old Passat AWD wagon. It definitely is not a compact, by any measure - even compared to the previous, quite large US Jetta (which was...

      Looks like you missed the "FWD with LSD" combination - which no Golf prior to the MkVII ever had - and, BTW, it's on record, on video.

      You need to replace - not just "top-off", the automatic transmission fluid every ~40,000 - 60,000 miles, depending on driving conditions.

      For people who bought a used car, this may mean the day...

      Conversely, the difference in reliability has narrowed to the point where for most people (outside OCD), it should not matter.

      Not that long ago, Consumer Reports rated the 2.5 Golf more reliable...

      I have always found that about the Golf - it just fits me.



      No IRS - no care. ;)

      My MkVI has an incredibly brilliant balance between superb handling and comfortable drive on rough roads -...

      I don't mind the wait if in the mean time they figure out how to make the TDI with IRS - no deal, otherwise - sorry.

      Remember, it is also a function of temperature. Summer tires conk out below ~40F, average all-seasons below ~20F, and excellent all-seasons perhaps below ~15-10F, when they get as hard as plastic...

      One should also note that Laguna Seca is a high-speed course, with most of the action in the ~70-100+mph range, and high-speed sweeping curves, on very smooth tarmac. This is not the GTI's strength...

      I am definitely very interested. Ideally, I would replace my almost 15-year old Passat wagon with the upcoming (for the US) TDI Golf/Jetta wagon - but only if it comes with IRS. Since I don't need...

      First thing, I would complain to VW about it: most VWs are so brilliant between a sporty and comfortable ride on bad roads - why should the new TDI Golf be any different?

      Not sure what to tell you, other than the cut-offs in Xenon lights are rather abrupt. When I first got my MkVI, I could not see anything beyond about 100 feet when not using high-beams. I told the...

      Nice and honest review.

      To top it all of (or not to have to), they got slightly better mileage in the faster, much roomier, and heavier GTI. :heart:
