      First mistake, trusting ANYTHING in a BMW cooling system. ;);)

      Properly inflated even the initial Corvair's were not that much more unsafe than any other car of the era. Remember, Mercedes, VW and Porsche also used swing axle suspensions are were not targeted. ...

      If this is true it sounds like a bad idea. One of the main reasons Top Gear worked so well was the camaraderie and banter between the hosts. Changing hosts often would almost surely impact that in...

      Agree... with his injuries a recovery is pretty much impossible, and while he most likely has no idea, prolonging the suffering IMO makes little sense.

      haha, yeah my dad had two as well and LOVED them. Unfortunatly the red convertible one he really liked died when he ran a stop sign and t-boned a cop. :laugh::laugh:

      Just off the top of my head I would here is a few items that would count as engineering blunders with some already mentioned.

      Cadillac V8/6/4
      Olds Diesel
      Lancia rust issues
      Vega engine block...

      true, Im just not sure the VR6 really belongs on this list because almost no engine out there is without some fault and most need something before 150k, Any VR6 included.

      I had my 2001 Jetta VR6...

      True, but in terms of performance, its not even that great anymore, and a "base" 488, schools it.

      Why? As others have noted on here, certain cars really dont ever "die" unless completely burned to the ground. Hell look at some of the current rusted and wrecked disasters of air cooled 911's that...

      I actually think that TGUS may actually be better now.

      IMO the biggest problem with TGUS was that it was always trying to be a carbon copy of the TGUK, with only minor variations. Maybe this...

      This is something I would describe as a huge blunder. Whoever thought it was a good idea was simply an idiot... I fully understand regulations and the need for more environmentally friendly...

      what I was wondering as well. I thought it was supposed to be harris and schmidt.

      Im waiting on this... I just dont see how VWOA is going to sell the remaining TDI's on dealer lots... my prediction is that they buy them back from the dealers and sell them in other markets.

      in fairness, they didnt really have a choice given the car architecture if they wanted to add AWD.
    16. It was fairly stable when the tires were...

      It was fairly stable when the tires were correctly inflated, but in the era way before TPMS, people rarely did that, and thus it was prone to oversteer.

      The ultradrive is still used in some derivative forms with added gears.

      And yes, it was a half baked design but it was also the first computer controlled automatic transmission, so it was bound...

      No. All of these can work very well when engineered correctly. Try again.

      This is true. In many cases anecdotal internet tales are greatly exaggerated compared to real world data on the percentage of engines that are actually affected.



      Again, though its...

      Nah dont agree with this one. They can require chain replacements, but its often way after 100k, more like 150k+ Many engines have issues with chains after a while...
