      He should also take in consideration that it sounds like the serious problems were covered under warranty. I'm sure many dealers/manufacturers would not have touched it after the mods. Even if the...

      I find Nokian's are cheaper in the long run because they last twice as long as many other snows.
      I got 228K on my wifes Passat with Nokians on for 11 Seasons. I went through 2.5 sets of summer tires...

      I bet ya, if you didn't muck with the suspension you wouldn't have had axle bolts come loose or broken weld.

      You pay to play.

      45K on 2011, only issue is intake so far. Completely stock. My 5th...

      Yeah that warranty is rigged to just expire just before you will probably need most of things on the list. Maybe you might get a free bulb out of the deal.
    5. What is typical battery life now on VW's (circa 2011)

      I read so many stories about batteries lasting only 2 years and dying with little warning and damaging things.

      Many owners said they died right on the 24 month mark (this may have been circa 2009...

      She deserves the CC, she has a good track record. She has a horrible commute and it's amazing she has not had more little bumps and bruses.

      Good news $2300.00 to repair. And that includes new head...

      The scrap yard route is too time consuming. I used to do that, maybe 30 years ago :)

      If it will be around $2K for a repair shop that would be great.

      Those parts do look cheap.

      It's good to...

      Any claim that pays out over $2000.00 is 4 points. Even though she was in a parking garage backout out going 3 MPH?.

    12. How much would you guess to fix this fender bender?

      My wife had a duel with a pile of plywood and lost.

      Anyway I'm debating to pay out of pocket vs an insurance claim.

      Total out of pocket due to insurance hike would be $2750.00 (4 Points for 5...

      Consistently no less than mid 30's. If you can restrain yourself which my wife consistently does.

      90% Highway. 6 Speed Manual and a light foot definitely saves a lot of gas on the stick version.

      Agreed.

      I NEVER pull the CC "UP TO" one of those parking stops. And mine isn't even an R-Line or Lowered. Doesn't the R-Line have even a lower spoiler than the Sport? You are just asking for...

      I'm not sure, but you might want to make sure it's not the intake manifold.

      I think it *MIGHT* possibly cause several different error codes and it's a pretty common failure.

      Mine was just replaced at 36K, 2011.

      I suspected these little 4 Cylinders were problematic which is why I got the V6 on my last Passat and it was fantastically reliable. 216K still no issues. No...
