    I don't have much experience with working on cars - but I'm loving reading about the PASSAT and the options available in modifying. I would really love just a checklist or advice on what upgrades I can / should do to make it feel more of a luxury feel. I'm not going for anything loud or ghetto...

    So , I had a concern about my transmission going on my 03 1.8. Well my fear has come true. After I replaced my engine mount , I decided to check the oil level in the trans. It seemed a little low so I pulled the drain to make sure there was in fact oil in it. I only let out a few drops and it...

    I just bought my wife a 2007 Saab 9-7X. She always turned her nose up at Saabs, but we drove it on a whim and she loves the thing. I'm surprised at the comfort, ride, and handling. I'm hoping the mixture of GM and Saab is a happy one- they received great consumer reviews.

    As my 05 Passat TDI approaches the 200,000 mile mark, I'm thinking of selling it and buying an Audi AllRoad with a 5-speed V6. I live in the land of blowing and drifting snow and the AWD might be nice. Any thoughts? Anybody that's had one, and what was your experience?

    Just joined this site. the wife purchased a new '14 TDI SEL, this past November. So far she seems delighted. Her previous was a '03 Audi A4 1.8T Quattro. While she really liked her Audi, it had developed some serious mechanical health issues at 98K. It seemed fruitless to spend the money...
