      This would be funnier if it wasn't true. Dealerships don't want to deal with rattles. They see the order and see it as a way to drive around in your car, make a trip to Wendy's. They love it

      I learned a long time ago to not let dealers touch my cars for rattles. They make it worse almost all the time. I just turn my music up

      I think people are overly harsh on VW/Audi reliability. They had issues many years ago dating back to the FSI engines and electrical issues. I've had various VW over the last 5 years and never had...

      It was 400 watts in 2015. More watts wouldn't make it sound like crap. If anything it would increase high volume clarity. Can you explain what about the 16 sounds worse than the 15?

      I haven't heard the 2015, but my 2016 SE sounds just fine and not any different really than my 2012 GLI. The only thing that doesn't sound great is the frequency response of the Sub. If I'm...

      It's not a good time to lease a new Passat. Even though its a slight refresh, they want to get the 15's gone so residuals are set low and MF set high. In the next few months it will be a much...

      What did you not like about it? I had a 2.0t A3(15) and traded it in for a GTI. I liked it quite a bit minus the wind noise and I had a massive rattle that drove me nuts that I eventually gave up

      Satellite radio is extremely compressed. HD radio is borderline cd quality. With Satellite radio you get a lot of distortion in the lows and highs. Outside of the music choice, the quality is piss...

      Streak in Drivers window

      So since I got my GTI, I've had a streak on the outside of my window running vertical. I can clean it off, and the next time I roll my window down and then up I get a streak. I'm assuming something...

      I had a 16k Ford Fusion S that didn't make a peep, so people that justify it by cost are going to have your opinion. While 30k isn't terribly expensive, its also not an entry level car. My main...

      I made the same promise after my 2012 GLI. I was embarrased to have people in the car. I couldn't believe a new car could have that many rattles. But I love my GTI even with the minor rattling. I...

      I paid 25,500 on an SE with Lighting with costco discount and loyalty. That doesn't sound like that great of a price to be honest

      I had a WRX a few years ago and it rattled pretty much from day 1. Nothing severe but you don't buy a Subaru for interior quality. I'm not saying the GTI has bad build quality, because it doesn't. ...
