    My wife owns a 2009 CC with about 43,000 miles on it. Rather than to buy a new car, I am researching installing some up to date safety features, i.e. backup camera and blind spot detection. Hope to get some help from forum members.

    I have a 2003 Passat GLX V6 sedan. It has a climatronic system. Sometimes while I have the temp set to 64 degrees F, the air blows, but is not always cold. I verified that the compressor is coming on, and that the electric fan is working. I did a diagnostic on the climatronic and got the...

    The tabs on my pass side front marker light were busted and so the assembly was popping out. I bought a new one on eBay, was putting that in, changed the burnt out bulb, got her all buttoned up and tested the lights. Nothing. All four marker lights on the bumper tub strips don't do a darn thing...

    I've always wanted to own a TDI diesel but the price seemed steep and where I live in New England a nice clean used one is rare. Does anyone here think the TDI emissions scandal might result in good deals on them? What are the drawbacks to buying one of the affected cars?

    I know the door locks are supposed to automatically lock after you exceed 10 MPH, but mine do it every time I go over 10 MPH. I might be crazy but I dont remember them doing it every time when I first got the car. Am I crazy does this happen to everyone and I just didnt notice it initially...
