      It's the oil pump bolt. On some VR6 engines from '06 and '07 it backs out, oil leaks and the engine seizes. Fixed for '08. It's not all VR6's from those years but enough to raise some hackles and...

      I'd save up a little more and get an '08. The '06-'07 VR6 engines have a potential oil bolt problem which was fixed for model year 2008, as was the peeling interior issues which affected some...

      I have turned in two other VW's under lease. My advice is to have the inspection and see what they say. In other words, do not replace tires or anything else unless they bring it up.

      It wasn't covered under warranty until there was a voluntary recall. VW wound up issuing some refunds for the work done prior. It's expensive too, around $1800.

      Brake fluid change every two years, regardless of mileage. Fluid gets condensation in it over time.

      I get that noise too, have since the beginning, every time I start the car (almost every day), with no ill effects. This was discussed in the B6 forum and we all agreed the startup noise was normal.

      I think you need an extension for the Sirius cable or a local dashboard puck. The cable from the "diversity antenna" -- shark fin -- comes down from the roof and into the car's module in the right...

      I didn't think a non-VW dealer could CPO a car. I mean, they don't know what it's been up to or where it's been, if you know what I mean.
