    Wiring harness exposed under car

    The driver........I can read the terrain before I cross it. It comes from 20+ years of offroading, dirtbiking, etc. My point is....if you are dragging the bottom of your car, you need a car that sits higher. Donald PS My wife put 90% of the miles on the car. She also drove on the same dirt...

    GM accused of rigging diesel emissions

    But you said it was to cheat the consumer.......which is it? The sole purpose was to get by the regs as cheap as possible.......which is the whole truth. You saying to cheat the consumer was #1.....is wrong. Donald

    Wiring harness exposed under car

    You need to repair that and think about getting a car that sits much higher. I took our TDi on plenty of dirt roads and forest service roads, and not once did I scrape the belly pan. Donald

    My dealings with VW have been easy and quick. Most issues are owner inflicted. They try to beat the system or try to be clever in their dealings. Just go with the flow, file your claims to a "T", and be patient. It will be quicker in the long run. Donald
