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

    My point exactly, in ONT Canada, emissions testing is just a cash grab and not a method of cleaning up the air. As long as the NOx sensor comes up in "Ready" status, you passed emissions and are good to go. Where I live, they treat emissions testing as just another Tax. It is a Hippy Tree...

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

    In ONT Canada, the emissions testing for light duty diesel is to plug the car into a computer, turn the key to accesory, wait for the computer to signal that there are no "Not-Ready Faults", hand over $$ to emissions tester, drive away. The car is not visually inspected nor started. MrVermin

    On the road...

    At this time I must regretfully pull out of attending this year's TDIFEST. The repairs on my transmission did not go to plan and it is not finished, there is a part (a seal) that I can only get at the dealership and they are closed until Tuesday :( Hope you all have fun and a great weekend...

    On the road...

    OK, I was hoping to leave Toronto tonight around midnight to get to the Fest early Friday morning, but my Transmission decided it had other plans for me. After not being able to select reverse or properly get the shifter into 1st, 3rd or 5th, I thought that the shifter fork went bad. After...

    tire size help

    Weird numbers, according to the numbers the stock 195/65/15 tires will make 807 revolutions per mile, while the 235/70/16's you have now will have 697 revolutions per mile and should put your speedo out so that if it reads 60mph, you are actually doing about 69mph. But then again, we have to...

    tire size help

    The stock 15" Mk4 tires are 195/65/15, so if you go to 16" rims, you need 205/55/16 tires to fit and keep the speedometer/trip/odometer calibrated properly. MrVermin

    Airbag Recall

    Registered owners will be getting a letter in the mail from VWoA/VWoC about the recall and what to do about it. If you are the second owner of the vehicle, go to your local Dealership and have them check the VIN to see if it falls into the recall. MrVermin

    Driving from the WEST....?? anyone?

    Just an FYI, the price of Diesel in the GTA and surrounding area has dropped to below the $1 per liter mark, so that makes it about $3 per US Gallon after conversion. MrVermin

    EXCLUSIVE!!! Respite for Diesel Prices! - Costco

    GasBuddy showing cheapest Diesel in GTA at 101.9 (the Esso at Keele and Langstaff) So, if there are a ton of stations in the the GTA at sub $1.00 range, they must be highly secretive... Of course if you drive far enough outside the GTA, the price usually drops another 0.05 or more, but I can't...

    New guy getting closer....

    VWoA tends to feel that the US customers can't handle a manual transmission with all the bells and whistles at the same time. Canadians, however, are able to purchase the top of the line Passat TDI with Navi and Sunroof with the 6MT. Go figure..... I also don't get that you can't get the Passat...
