    Does anybody use the automatic parking feature on the Autobahn?

    Well, I guess it is semi-automatic because you still brake and feather the gas. How well does it work? Does it require a huge parking space?

    A slightly different AC question

    How is the AC in the back and in the hatch area? Will the GSD be happy back there? Sizewise he fits, but there are no vents back there. Thoughts?

    PSA - Chamberlain/LiftMaster garage door controls 888LM

    A few weeks ago my wife came home and said "you forgot to close the garage door." I slapped myself a couple of times and forgot about it. Today, I'm having dinner and the dog jumps up from under the table, and goes racing to the door barking her head off. I look out the window and see my...

    Who blew up their R on I-270 tonight?

    White R, blew by me at 20:00 doing 90 or so in the 55. I was in the middle of 3 lanes doing 65ish about two miles from where it goes to two lanes. About a 1/2 mile ahead there was a big puff of white smoke and he stood on the brakes and pulled over. He nearly ran a painters van off the road...

    Since we're posting useless articles

    I thought this one might get a chuckle. The comments (and the responses by the author) are funny as well. Now, I think we all know that manual transmissions are a dying breed (and I bought into automatics ages ago) but idiotic articles like these just show how stupid the internet has become.

    What mods weren't worth it AND ended up costing you a lot of money in repair costs

    I'll start: I bought a new 1996 Yukon. Great car but my local speed shop (this was before Google and Altavista and Ask Jeeves were the search engines) recommended that I install a performance ignition kit that also included all new wires. I noticed no difference but talked myself into thinking...

    This post was inspired by the "replaced my windshield" post. What issues to we believe are inherent to the MK VII but in reality are the same issues that are complained about on other cars. If you know the cause, then please post that as well. Let me start "Soft", easily chipped windshields...

    Decisions, decisions

    I realize that buying a car is a purely personal decision and outside influences shouldn’t guide my decision but I wanted your guys’ thoughts to see if I’m overlooking something. A bit of background. I had a MkV GTI and then an R32. Loved both cars, hated the dealership. From there I moved on...

    vs Hyundai

    I recently rented a base Mk7 Jetta. While sitting at a light I looked over and there was this Hyundai revving his engine. It was on. We were on a bit of a decline, so when the light turned green I put it in neutral and shut down the 89' Excel.
