      On our older B5 Passat, the maintenance schedule recommended 105K miles for the timing belt. There was also a sticker on the core support from the factory in Germany that said 75K miles. I believe...

      Yeah, parked it towards the end of March, right after it's 3rd VW Carefree service (which included the Haldex flush), right after it turned 20K miles. Not sure when I'll see it next, but I plan on...

      Ok, so I'm coming up on 3 years soon, but will be out of town before that happens, for a fair bit of time (~2 years). I plan on having the dealer change the motor oil before I park the car, but I'm...

      I was told it wouldn't be covered since I too am out of the 12mo/12k mile rattle warranty period. Guess that's what I get for snoozing on this. $90 for the buckle, I think I'll wait until some...

      seems these are made by CoverKing based on the names - is the premium for the Satin Stretch worth it over TriGuard? Are the generic hatchback covers that bad, for an indoor only use?

      Ok, next question in this line: where do I find a good (indoor) dust cover? Are there particular ones that are good, bad? Or are they all pretty much the same?

      Even at the same weight, smaller wheels will have less inertia. They may not help unsprung weight, but would help with acceleration and braking. I would love to run 17" wheels, but just don't have...

      long term storage

      Hey Folks,

      I've never stored a car long term before (at least not successfully, but that's another story). I am looking into putting the R away for a while, but don't really know what I should...

      Hey Tyrol, for the understeer, why not reduce the front sway, rather than increase the spring rate in the rear? My understanding is that the front sway increases roll stiffness at the front, and...

      I've found the MFA average consumption to be pretty close to actual, believe it or not. I don't understand why people hate it so much.

      Mine started acting up, would work only on the passenger side, but not the driver's side. New battery also fixed it for me. Key fob buttons still worked fine with the old battery.
