    I am looking at changing my car in September. My first choice is a Tornado red Passat estate (wagon). My recent trip to the dealers, however, educated me about the Golf Estate.

    Mom needs a new car. Passat wagons are getting nice discounts right now...I've seen them for around invoice, 22k. They love my 01.5 but my mom feels like the Passat is too big. Ok, so I try to get her in a Jetta wagon. But my dad thinks the 1.8T is too unreliable and the 2.0 is too weak. He...
