    Hello, I live in LA area, Covina. Anyone here familiar with Bozzani VW? I've been taking my car there for years and wanted to know if anyone else had taken their car there and if so, was it a good experience? Regards, Hans

    This has been posted before, but I'm posting it myself because I'm just outraged at the VW stealership model of business. The antenna base gasket on my 2004 Variant finally gave up the ghost; I was at the dealership on Friday for an express oil change, and asked if they stocked the gasket in...

    My 3.6 4motion wagon will be due for 70k service soon. The car is under CPO, so I might decide to have the dealer do the service so that it shows in VW service history. What kind of gauging can I expect from the dealer service dept?

    Soon I'm having my VW dealer do a lot of recall work that won't cost me a cent! However, do dealers like this work or not? Since I'm assuming they're getting reimbursed by VW I would think and hope they like doing recall work, but I wasn't sure if anyone knew any inside info about whether or...

    I need a rear window washer squirter as well as some door panel clips. I know ECS has the clips, but they want $12 for shipping for just the clips and I didn't see the rear squirter listed.

    About 30 seconds after driving away from the house the engine started missing something awful, turned around and hooked up the OBD, missing on cyl 2. A quick search here resulted in a most probable cause as a faulty ICM or as the repair manual states "Ignition Coil Power Output Stage", the...

    http://www.cnn.com/2007/AUTOS/05/25/gm_vs_camry/index.html Two things: 1. If "brand" means anything, one wonders if looking at the same cars with Toyota or Honda will make a difference. 2. If the salesmen are good, they'll know how to take advantage of letting the customer try out the...
