    STOP! Check coolant!

    I've been getting a "STOP! Check coolant! Owner's manual" warning sporadically for a while now. I decided to finally swap out the coolant expansion tank as I assumed it had something to do with the sensor. Swapped it out, went for a drive, and got the warning again. I have appropriate levels of...

    PRNDS Flashing - 09 GTI

    Here's what happened to me today. I was driving on the highway when my PRNDS started flashing. My car started behaving as if it was stuck in a gear in DSG Manual mode. It would shift at very high RPM and shift down at very low RPM. I had to drive (slowly in the right lane) for a bit before I...

    Mismatched rims bad for car? Help.

    Hey guys, I ran into a pothole last year so one of my winter rims is busted. Tire is fine. Aside from aesthetics is there anything that can go wrong with the vehicle if I have 1 rim different from the other 3? Size would obviously be the same as it would fit the tire... Rim, wheel, whatever.

    Slammed into a pothole, quick question.

    Ok, I slammed into a pothole with my 16inch aluminum rims. The tire itself looks fine but the rim itself is bent and cracked. Should I switch all my tires and rims back to my 18's until I get it fixed or can I just use the spare? That would leave an 18 and 3 16's. Also, Belle Tire said they...

    MI - Jax Kar Wash

    Hey guys, You guys ever take your car through this? So far i've had great results from the exterior wash (i'll do the interior myself). How bad is this for the car if I don't wash/detail myself? It seems like a pretty decent service. http://www.jaxkarwash.net/ Opinions?
