    Has anyone ever towed their B5 behind an RV? Looking for options. Ideally, we'd find some kind of "attach to the front of the car" solution. We have a 30 foot Winnebago with a class IV hitch on it, and would like to tow our '02 Passat Wagon 1.8t. I know car dollies are simple, but it's seems...

    Got my 4motion towed last night and I can't think of any way to figure out if they really put the whole car up on a dolly like they said they did or if they just dragged it by 2 wheels. It was only towed for about a mile or two. Would I be able to notice something wrong already if they towed...

    So here's the series of events... Plowing down the highway at 80mph, I hear a "ding", glance down and catch a glimpse of the MFA saying alternator, but it quickly went back to normal. About 30 seconds later the car dinged again and the MFA displayed Alternator Workshop! The message dissapeared...

    Okay here is the deal. I have an 04 GLS that I purchased at 24,000. It was in good shape but had no history. I have treated it like a baby and am currently at 53,000. I give it full synthetic oil at changes and am always on time. The car had to be transported to my mechanic as I was afraid to...

    One of my customers is one of these crappy buy-here-pay-here used car lots. The called and had me go grab a car down in Branson for what was essentially a voluntary repo. The car struck me as so bizarre, and I've always liked weird things in general, especially cars. Especially cars similar...
