    I thought dyno's can't bench above 1700hp.

    It's okay, he likes VW's, he obviously knows nothing about what cars are good and what aren't.

    This is very true, VW owners are a strange bunch.

    That thing is faster in the 1/4 than anything I'll ever own. I prefer courses with turns...and vehicles with 2 wheels.

    Quite a few actually:
    some fords
    almost all lexus's
    most honda's
    one or two nissan's


    Mostly cars that do a good job at what they're designed to do. Which is why I hate VW's, they're all pieces of shit (besides the TDI ones, those are nice) that fall apart easily. When you are around as many used cars as I am each day you would notice how shitty VW's are.

    This is pure gold.
    How does a car suddenly become shitty or not shitty simply by changing the motor and tranny?
    Hate to break it to you, but most cars, regardless of powertrain, share most of their features.

    The power windows in a V6 Mustang are the exact same ones in a GT.
    The headlights on a Camaro RS are exactly the same as the ones on a Z28.

    Your example also fails to note what exactly is wrong. Are the gas motors crappy and the diesel's good? Is it the rest of the car?
    Nice try hoss.

    VW's are unreliable pieces of shit. TDI's save themselves by good economy and reliability. I don't care if my interior is shitty as long as my car lasts well after the 100k mile mark. Seeing as most VW's fall apart well before then makes them shitty.

    To quote a reliability report on a select few of VW's:

    Gotta love your engine seizing from overheating issues caused by the manufacturer.
    What's more fun than a jack collapsing on you while you are changing a flat?
    Lose braking? PERFECT!
    I love it when my hood flies open while I'm traveling on the expressway.
    So you get a flat and your car sets itself on fire? Wow, at least you don't have to worry about the car falling on you from the faulty jack since it'll already be on fire.

    It's still not fixed? Even a couple years later of this known issue. Talk about a great company
    Don't really care about this, most cars have these problems.
    You guys seem to love bonfires. Always setting your VW's on fire and all.
    Again, a minor problem.
    Gotta love your wheels falling off while driving.
    More fires!

    but whatever dude, I'm done proving to you that VW's are worthless piles of shit ... think what you want

    Thats funny, mine just clicked over 110K miles.
    I guess I should probably let it know its supposed to die soon. Kinda funny though that many others have VW's going long after the 100K mile mark. You can lurk on vwvortex.com for a while if you want.

    I also find it funny that my dub is going this long with many original parts while my last vehicle, a good solid American pickup needed a new motor at less than 100K, required alternator after alternator, had electrical issues constantly and needed a new rear end (which is why I ditched the piece of shit)

    You still aren't making sense. The TDI's physically last a long time, but other factors contribute to reliability. Most cars on a platform share parts, yet for some odd reason, TDI VW's are more reliable than gas VW's even though they share like 85% of their parts.
    Again, nice try, but you fail.

    Gee, the fan motor making god awful noises and the coolant temperature rising would probably alert most folks to a problem.
    Take it in and get it fixed under warranty.

    Any jack can fail. I've used mine several times without problems. It comes down to being smart and making sure its on a flat, level surface.

    You know, if I saw a puddle of fluid under my car, I'd be a bit concerned. Again, take it in and have it fixed under warranty.

    Gee, a loose bolt...whatever shall I do? Oh yeah, put a wrench on it.

    The TSB said if you DRIVE with a flat, it can cause a problem. I guess if you feel its OK to drive with a flat, this could be a problem. Most people will pull over and put the spare on/call AAA.

    Wow, if you expose insulation to hot exhaust gas, it might light on fire. Holy fucking newsflash!!! Crashes are unpredictable at best, I'd be more concerned about the tank full of fuel.

    So, the front control arm bolts could loosen. You'd probably notice this though as your tire wear would get a little strange and steering a bit vague. Since VW's are much better about road feel than most American shitboxes, you'd really notice this.


    The one thing you didn't note that if this is a recalled item, the owners would get something in the mail about it. They take it in, get it fixed for free and go home.
    If its not a recall, its a TSB (Tech Service Bulletin) and the techs will take care of it when the car comes in for service. Either way, any possible issues are alleviated fairly quickly which is probably why we don't hear about ABS related fires or suspension falling off or hoods flying open.

    Could be like certain Mustang Cobras from a few years back where they didn't make advertised HP and you couldn't get the hoods open. How about Chevy Silverado's that had rear brake lines that weren't adequately shielded or parking brakes that dragged and wore out in 50,000 miles.
    Every manufacturer has problems. Thats why they issue these reports.
    Perhaps you'd care to post a few relating to the Ford Focus?

    VW's are not unreliable pieces of shit. You posting a few TSB's doesn't prove dick nor does making some stupid claim that a different motor makes the cars last extra long.
    Most VW's will continue running down the road long after a fox body has rusted itself into powder.

    says the guy with a C6 Z06 >* pic as his avatar.
    The car was just released and already its the best thing evar?
    Who's riding sack?

    Watercooled VW's on the other hand have been around for a LONG time and many of them are still running around without issue.
    Mine is almost 9 years old and has 110,000 on the clock. According to a few in here, it should have died a long time ago.
