    I live in Seattle, where most of the winter is spent driving in rain, except for weekends where I drive up to the mountains for skiing. My one and only current car is a '98 Passat 1.8T FWD which is on its last legs at ~250k miles. I will probably be looking for a new AWD vehicle in the spring...

    Do any of you run snow chains on your cars occasionally? What wheel/tyre combo are you running? Do you get intereference issues between the added snowchain and your suspension. Here in NZ we are fond of snow chains for getting up ski fields and across the alps during mid winter. I currently run...

    I have a 2017 Passat and live in Atlanta. A week ago when we had heavy wet snow my front assist sensor gave a fault and quit working. When I got home there was about 3/4 inch of packed snow on the VW emblem/ sensor. I cleaned i toff and it works fine. How do folks up north and in Europe keep...

    Believe it or not, I am moving to Minnesota (from NYC) and anticipate needing snow tires (duh!). My 2003 Passat W8 wagon has standard 16" wheels with 215/55-16 all-season radials. Since I like to have snows mounted on wheels, does it make sense to move up to 17s or stick with a set of 16s? Any...

    This is for my wife's 2002 1.8T 5-spd Passat wagon. Has been her daily commuter and kids transporter for the past 12 years. Still has the original Wellington rims and she has done a great job keeping them in great shape without significant curb rash. We took it for a ski trip recently and had to...

    We had some snow recently here in Raleigh, and too many of the local drivers are bat-shit insane in the snow. My wife got stuck in traffic and didn't feel safe driving her Solara the rest of the way home, and she fortunately found, of all places, a DOT maint. depot to hang out in while traffic...

    My new Pacific Northwest hometown is LOADED with awd subarus and giant 4x4s, so I was pretty sure I was going to be following in a spray of salty snow melt for the next few months. Being from the southeast I had no idea what to expect from my first snow outing or from the 4motion and TIP in the...

    Howdy! Me again. So! I'll be driving to Alaska next month, and had a question about some suspension stuff. I have a Bilstein B16 PSS9/10 kit for my Passat, but if I were to jack it up just maybe 3 or 4 inches and fitted just slightly large winter tires on, would I be ok? Thanks! NTU Thinking...
