      I've owned a number of VW's and I'm not sure reliable is the word I'd use to describe them. My R32 had a major DSG malfunction that I had to go in three times for before it got fixed and my JSW is...

      Could be the actual actuator mechanism is bad. The one on the rear driver's side door on my JSW is starting to go and intermittently will refuse to either lock or unlock (depending on its mood). This...

      You keep mentioning defraud, VW didn't defraud the government. To defraud someone (or something) is to use fraud in order to obtain money. VW didn't get a single dime from the EPA or any other branch...

      The so-called "cheat" device exists, we can all agree on that. And VW is ultimately responsible, sure. But it's not like they took a vote on it and everyone in the corporation hit the "yes, let's...

      The whole point of all those court cases is usually to determine whether or not there was prior knowledge, but let's be honest here. There usually is. Someone somewhere in the company usually knows....

      Toyota was fine after their scandal, and GM doesn't seem too worse for the wear. Mind you both of those automakers had actual alleged deaths involved in their respective scandals. VW's scandal is...

      I agree with this wholeheartedly. They're also significantly and noticeably cleaner (in emissions), even just by looking at it visually. Though I don't like all the added complexity, but I guess...

      Urea injection reduces NOx emissions. It's one of two ways of accomplishing it, the other being the way most 2.0 TDI's do it, by "catching" it somehow (I don't know the exact details of how it works,...

      The media has gone completely nuts about this. I'm hearing about this on podcasts that I listen to that have literally nothing to do with cars. VW has not done anything diabolical or risked their...

      I'm sure an expert will chime in on this eventually in one of these threads, but in meantime, my understanding of it is that NOx (nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide) is the primary culprit and the...

      I believe it's been stated that EU and US regulations will converge in a couple years when it comes to diesels in passenger cars. (Currently they are different for both markets, which is why it's so...

      I largely agree. Nothing against the 1.8T, but I don't want one. I want at least a 2.0T. Lately I've found myself missing the old VR6 from the R32 (though I don't miss the awful fuel economy), and I...

      I'm not a big fan of the current Tiguan's styling, so I was really impressed by the looks of this new one. It's honestly pretty good looking, more so than a lot of its competitor vehicles. The short...

      I think the D5153 is the basic unit and runs on some variant of Windows (Windows CE maybe).

      GM5153 adds screen mirroring and a few other minor things. Useful if you want to use like Waze via your...

      There's no question people want it (especially enthusiasts). I think the problem has always been one of cost versus benefit. Since AWD is now a done deal and is definitely coming here, and the TDI is...

      We are a culture of convenience. Most of average folks love the idea of a set it and forget it appliance. No one wants to have to constantly fiddle with things or settings or always be readjusting....

      I don't profess to be an expert, so someone else can eventually chime in on this, but I believe largely you're right. Winter tires can often help significantly if your issue is simply traction in...

      I was not aware of that and to be honest, I'm surprised they're ok with it given how soundly they generally seem to enjoy panning things that come with "primitive" suspension (especially if they come...

      Supposedly the whole AdBlue beam suspension mess is because the TDI engine originally never required the fluid (and was designed to run without it), but increasingly strict regulations (and possibly...

      Subscribed on the off chance that this happens. My only reservation is that my hatch opens high enough to hit the garage door (when it's open and in the stored overhead position), which isn't a...
