    My Old '98 Jetta TDI Alternator Has Finally Died At 25 Years Old!

    My son has had the old girl in CA for quite some time. It has 280K+ miles. The car has been phenomenally bulletproof! The best investment I ever made in a car. In fact, the A/C compressor was the 1st thing of significance to go bad, and it failed after 7 years and 180K miles (we live in FL...

    Can someone explain to me the whole service interval wrench and when to change oil?

    I changed our 1998 Jetta TDI every 20,000 miles per oil analysis. It now has around 270,000 miles and runs great!

    At What Typical RPM Do You Typically (Manually) Shift You 8-Speed?

    Just curious. My similar 6-speed BMW X5 3.0L d35, I typically upshifted to next higher gear at 1,700 RPM. I've been shifting my new (to me) 2012 Touareg 3.0 8 speed at 1,750. How about you manually shifting? The torque curve indicates it should be fine when it drops down to around 1,400 RPM...

    2012 Executive realistic price

    I just bought a one owner, VW buyout 2012 Touareg TDI Sport w/only 80K miles from a VW dealership for $15,800. $27K seems HIGH. With THAT low miles, might have been all/mostly city miles which is not good on a vehicle (lots of short trips not fully warming engine).
