    I own a VW and only need to advice that you should fight for an extended warranty!

    TDI's give great mileage and with a few upgrades WILL become an awesome torque machine!

    I have the 2002 Jetta TDi and I love it. The only thing I would change on mine is buy a standard. Mine is auto and gives me about 41-42mpg and my buddy has a standard and it gives him 47-48mpg and for me it was about the mileage, so I wish I had got a standard, but I love my jetta. No issues what so ever and I have 148,000 miles on it.

    How many times have the power windows fallen? How many times has the brake light switch been replaced because you can`t get out of park?

    Dude, Passat is an awesome car, go for it! I have the 06 GTI 2.0 FSI and this thing runs good! I would have bought deisel, but I went for the zip.
    still not to bad at 28-29mpg average...PR...

    They're camels, interior finish is awesome (better than a BMW or a mercedes), very comfortable, I don't know which model you plan on getting (i4 or V6) but the V6 hauls surprisingly well.

    Hoss you are correct, but they replace them with metal hangers instead of plastic and then give you a life time warranty on them. Had both mine done at once. FREE...So it isn't a problem.

    anybody wanna take over payments for an 05 GMC Envoy? 275 HP, I-6 cyl, 12-13 mpg

    what a mistake, lol. If i lived where half of you guys live i wouldn't complain too much, but $3.25 - 3.35 for REGULAR kinda sucks. and gas on the water at $4.09 sucks too.

    do you guys have tow vehicles, or you use these fuel efficient cars to tow trailers also?
