    '11 JSW Manual Transmission Problems

    Since it's a CPO car, I take it to the dealer and a technician ride with you while you demonstrate the problem. I just bought a '12 Golf TDI and just got back from having some minor issues taken care of too.

    Yeah, I really wanted an eco hitch first. Torklift doesn't make a hitch for a '12 Golf TDI but, if I want to drive to NW Washington, they'll make a custom one for me!
