  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    We've all had situations where we couldn't avoid hitting something due to speed, safety comfort (risk taking), etc. About two weeks ago, driving on a Sunday afternoon (w/ sun at bad angle), guard rail on the right, semi-truck in passing lane, running 60-65...I first noticed the object about 1/4...

  6. Wheel and Tire Forum
    I'm looking for recommendations on lower priced tires for my new (to me) 17" wheels. I run a lot of freeway miles for work, and I don't race the car, or drive like an idiot, so the grip and performance of the tire is really secondary to the mileage. Wet handling is a non-issue, since I live in...

    I think I have a bad CTS again...it was replaced abotu 2 -3 years ago. I was scanning with a Scan tool (using a generic car) and the temp reading was jumping back and forth between 50 and 90*C (125 and 195*F). Does the coolant temp sensor affect the way the engine runs? I mean does the...

Now the city wants $21 more money because I didn't give them the $301. I'm going to take it to court. There are...
