    Advice on first TDI

    I am trying to find a photo of a modern concept chevy minivan and cannot. I am pretty sure I have it saved on my camera roll someplace. Was very cool. Someone mocked up a nice a-team version but the one I am thinking of was mostly silver.

    Advice on first TDI

    I think it will be pretty hard to meet all the points you mentioned. I ended up getting my wife a '12 Highlander so we could put one kid back in the 3rd row to keep the 3 of them from fighting as much. It was also nice to have more room in the back to stack extra suitcases.

    Thanks all for the good ideas. I almost bought a grey set with round holes as Anton suggested. Swapping the round clips with the oval ones from my old wore out mats. My local dealer said he could get me a set for $189. I told him no thanks. I called WeatherTech and they said the mats did...

    '04 PD Jetta Cruise Control Issue

    Dan, That is the hose that many people use a "Dog Leash" or "Doggie Collar" to keep it from coming loose right? I will go check it this afternoon. I replaced it once a few years ago and wish I would have just bought the "Dog Collar" back then. Thanks,

    '04 PD Jetta Cruise Control Issue

    Thanks for the suggestions. I did have my Brake light switch replaced under the recall and that fixed an issue where the cruise would turn off. This is different because the cruise stays on but just allows the speed and RPMs to die down for a little bit and then it comes back very quickly...

    '04 PD Jetta Cruise Control Issue

    Lately while driving on the freeway, with cruise set usually somewhere between 60 and 75, occasionally my car will slow down. I can just cancel the cruse speed back up and reset the cruise and all is fine for a while again. If I don't do anything about it after a little while the car will...
