    What am i getting myself into.

    How do you guys feel about oil filters? Is there a big benefit in using a premium filter vs a standard one. I usually opt up just to be safe but today Autozone only had the $5 STP. Walmart has a Kand N for around $7 and $14. Im doing 10k OCI on my 2014 CPO.

    Tuning a CPO JSW and the Warranty

    I drive like the old man that I am. With my 2005 TDI I average 40mpg. With the 2014 Im getting 34. I knew going in it would be less but really expected a 10% reduction. Not sure what they check for on the newer diesels. On my old one they only look under the hood and plug in the computer. No...

    Tuning a CPO JSW and the Warranty

    Im seriously considering doing a Malone Stage 2 tune with DSG on my 2014 JSW. My major concerns are the five year emissions warranty, the CPO 24 month warranty and passing SMOG in California. The 2014 after the fix has better power than my 2005 but considerable less FE. Obviously Im wanting...

    Not Happy With My FE

    Ive had my 2014 JSW DSG for one month. First fill up I got 34.7 mpg. Second fill I got 33.2 mpg. My 2005.5 Jetta gets 38-42 mpg. I used to shop for the cheapest fuel in town. Ive been putting Shell in the 2014.

    Inaccurate Speedo

    Those radar speed limit signs that tell your speed keep telling me my speed is around 5 mph lower than my speedometer. I confirmed it with a friends GPS. Also it seems the MPG measured by the Onboard computer is around 10% higher than what I calculate manually. Any ideas? Thanks!!!!

    What Maintainance Manual do you like?

    I have a 2005.5 Jetta. I do minor maintainance. I dont think I would tackle anything bigger than a timing belt. I need to remove the front air dam and grill due to hitting an animal. I also need to replace a rear door lock. Im looking at buying the Bentley for around $85. What do you think?
