VW diesels will soon be relegated to the dust bin of history. As I presume this place will be too.
If this board didn't go out of its way to limit talk and sharing of info on the biggest thing ever about VW and diesels - diesel gate and what VW was doing about it, it sure looked that way.
I have some questions others probably share as well.
Like: do individual owners of the vehicles involved have to file suit in the case I read about in the media, (the article said a judge had given "the parties" to June 21 to work out a deal) or will the deal cover everyone?
That is what...
Those that say "don't panic" are probably the same ones who sat listening to the band play on the Titanic.
My guess is it is the death of the diesel engine in passenger cars. Gonna take too much money to make them compliant.
VW will spend some money to get past the cost to us current owners...
On the highway I get about 45. Last trip I averaged 49 heading off our caprock to lower elevations over about 180 miles. Also, 75+ mph most of the time.

Just out of the blue would act like the accelerator was not connected to the engine for around 2 to 2 and half seconds. On mine it was usually accelerating (or trying to) from a slow down.

Thanks for giving me the benefit of your experience Revpeach.
Since it is a front wheel drive and will be on the tow dolly, I wasn't too worried about mechanical damage, but, my Jetta Sports Wagen is, relatively, so low and long, especially behind the wagen's rear wheels, I was afraid it might...
I am thinking about hauling my 2014 behind an RV later this summer. It will be on a car hauler (front two wheels off the ground on a two wheeled carrier).
I have some concern about how long and relatively low the JSW is as far as dragging the rear bumper area going through dips.
Of course, if...
I've had this type of sensation from day one with my 2014 JSW. Compared to my 2004 feeling like it was on rails at any speed, I was very disappointed.
I don't know what VW changed in the suspension, but it is noticeably less secure feeling. I had a 2009 Jetta coupe and it had less...
Just got an HTC One cell phone. My Nokia Lumina 1020 wasn't a problem when I "found" it last October. Ditto wife's Samsung cell phone.
My 2014 Jetta says "compatible phone not found".
How do I fix that?
If I take it to the dealer can they update the data base?
