    So I was test driving a 2010 Passat and I really like the car, the onlt problem is that there is these weird jolt or stutter any time I go from a complete stop to pushing on the gas. I will approach the stop sign, make a complete stop, then once you press on the gas the car will begin to move...

    Hi All, I just produced a video called Speed Kills Your Pocketbook, and it's about how the overaggressive enforcement of speed limits that are too low only serves to give the government our money.

    In Indiana, for 25+ MPH over, $114.5+$4.00 per mile. Is that per mile over for total speed? This could potentially majorly suck.

    I got a speeding ticket today just after getting my car back from the bodyshop. I figured I'd take on some backroads and make sure the alignment and everything was working good through hard cornering. Totally empty straight road and I got busted for 75 in a 45. $308 :(. I can take traffic school...
