- 2011 JSW with DSG, Panoroof, rear air bags and the always fun velcro blocks, Blue with beige int
Returned my wagon Friday , after having it sit for a few months to replace the HPFP that died in Oct,( my 3rd pump in the car w 130,000) I cleaned it out and had one last drive praying my "new" HPFP would make the 16 mile drive. It was 25 degrees out but I had the Pano roof open the whole way, heated seats on and heat cranked up all the way, first time I drove it in 3 months and it felt like sitting in a favorite chair again. I bought it form Chris a Longhorne VW and was the car I owned the longest in my 30 years of driving 5 years, I put on 99.5% of the 130,000 miles and loved the car, it had taken me to 17 states and Canada many times, but with a cracked DPF and the latest Hpfp failure it was time to take the money and run. Without a doubt this board has been a lifesaver, I got donated parts for my latest HPFP, and acquired great knowledge here, I had a fellow TDI meet me at midnight while in Canada in Jan ( it was about 5 degrees) so he would read my codes when i had a issue all because I posted here, 15 minutes later he said he could meet me on his way home from work, YOU do not find this with a Honda board. I bought a used Saab 9-5 to replace my VW and the other day took it to VA and back 500 miles and 27MPG, I will miss my wagon, the space , the Pano roof and the MPG. But I will miss the folks here, I have over a 1000 post here and I tried to give back to help newbies as others helped me when I was a newbie. Good luck to all and I hope you all have much success w your TDI's and life.
