Interesting. I’ve never seen an ad but sometimes I get a page load error randomly.
I get a TON of page load errors like this, multiple times per day, but never with any other site:

Probably the wrong thread for this, so... sorry I guess? Back to our regularly scheduled free for all.

Yup that’s exactly the error message. I rarely use a computer to visit here but don’t remember seeing that on my laptop.

Not so much what I did to the car, but what I found.

There's a spot on my driver's side upper seat bolster, where the leather is already wearing through... on a 7 month old car. I've had other vehicles for years of hard work use that didn't show that kind of wear.

We are not amused. There's a clear trend of materials VW used on this car that look good, but are comically fragile. Interior plastics, windshield, headlight lenses, and leather seats apparently.

It really bothers me, and it's a trend in lots of other products. Durability under normal use is literally one of the cornerstones of the value equation, and the finishes on this car are obviously weak in that area.

I leased the car for write-off reasons, with the intent to buy it out at the end. I suspect I won't want to keep it, if this trend continues.

Also, noticed two huge dents in my rear passenger side door where someone must have hit me in a parking lot somewhere.
Always fun, my car has been hit 3 times in the past two years. Always in the parking lot... do my best to park as near to the curb as possible, in a spot where there is only parking on one side of it. You could literally lay down in the parking spot next to my car and still be in the line, yet people still find ways to hit it.

Disrespectful mother fuckers.

I never park anywhere that people can park on both sides of the car. It's also best to park on the passenger side of cars if you must park next to them. A car is always going to have a driver but not always passengers.

Unfortunately even this strategy isn't fool proof. Some douche still managed to put a quarter sized dent on the hatch and scuff my bumper in the rear.

No matter the time I never park close to a store, my condo, or the doors where I work. Lazy people who won't walk are are same people who dent car panels.

I was able to buff out what looked like grocery cart damage on my bumper. So far, no dings. It's helps that neither car gets out much over the last 2 years.

Mine got dinged when I was at the hospital getting my baby. I saw it, but I wasn't too upset at the time. I looked at it the other day and I got pretty pissed off though.

I believe it's doing a redirect to help filter out the spam bots but as we've all seen it doesn't always work as intended

Did they have a pre black Friday special on babies at the hospital? I hear the trade in value on older kids is crazy right now, too. Good time to trade up.
