      QFT

      I've spent a lot of time in one of the most polluted cities in Europe: Milan. Yes Milan, you'd be surprised to see how high Milan ranks in cities with the worst air quality globally. The...

      The sunroof drains are the least reliable part of the car. Consider it a blessing in disguise that there is no sunroof! We have 2 v50s and are praying that the drains don't clog.... It sucks when...

      I'm baffled by it too. I'm sure there's a venn diagram of outback buyers and VW buyer demographic and I'll bet they overlap quite a bit.

      I know people that buy outbacks here because of the non...

      We have a 2006 v50 2.4i and the 2010 R-Design v50 and both wear rear pads faster. In fact my 1999 Passat did too. I can't find the article right now - but the way I understand it is that in many...
