    Hill holder?

    I have a 2012 SE TDI. So a manual transmission. I have driven manual since I was taught how to drive in a 1936 Maxwell truck. (At least that is what I was told. Never have been able to verify the year or make.) When I first got my license, my father took me to San Francisco to learn how to drive...

    Volkswagen's Clean Air Act violations on 2009+ TDIs spark huge recall, investigations

    Hah! You should have seen it in the '50s when I was growing up! :D The air quality is way better now. When I go back to visit, I am quite amazed. I still remember when I lived in Westchester, near Lincoln and Manchester streets. I went to Santa Monica City College then, and on the way down the...

    Volkswagen's Clean Air Act violations on 2009+ TDIs spark huge recall, investigations

    I have not read all of this thread but I did not see the NPR interview with the VW CEO where he says VW did not lie. Brass ones, he has.

    Volkswagen's Clean Air Act violations on 2009+ TDIs spark huge recall, investigations

    I have been reading the posts just to see what my 2012 Passat will be looking at. The quality has diminished a lot. It would be nice to clean it up. I bought my TDI's for the MPG they give me. All of the recalls for my 1999.5 Jetta and 2012 Passat have NOT been performed up to this point...

    Code Reset.

    Darn. I could have reset it too. Oh well. I am not checking the site enough I guess. Steve in Aurora is a great mechanic for the TDI. I have used him forever.

    Another happy Farnham customer!

    Yes. He is 'the one'. I bought my Passat in July of last year and will buy from him again when the time comes. And the drive home was fun! Even with the one way flight with my wife to PA, I saved money.

    dim-less self-dimming rearview mirror

    OK. I have done my playing with the sensor. I really do not see an increase in the function of the mirror. I go to work at 0 dark 30. Covering the front sensor did not seem to improve the amount of dimming. Turning it off DID make it way worse. :) So, it still comes down to the fact that I wish...

    dim-less self-dimming rearview mirror

    Stole my plan! Though I was going to try it first with a piece of black tape just to see if it did anything. Thanks for the idea! Would be wonderful if it works.

    dim-less self-dimming rearview mirror

    I just tested my mirror while parked in my garage. I can see that there is some dimming but not as much as I would like. However, that being said, I put a flashlight on it and when it is dimming I can ALMOST stand the glare. When I turn the mirror off, the glare causes pain. :) So, I know I am...
