No idea.  SWMBO dropped it of and picked it up.  It has become her car :(

Lots of dealers have been using the incorrect oil for these cars when doing the 'free' oil changes.

I hate that when that happens.  I've essentially lost the Prius to the wife and I'm stuck with the Rav when I need a car to travel in....  So much so that I've ordered a new radio for it.

I shoulda seen it coming.  With the sole exception being the C14 each and every new vehicle has ended up being hers.  If she gets her MC endorsement I'm getting a lawyer ;)

I guess the same thing has happened with our Jetta. My wife drives it most of the time but that's because I'm riding my bike.

Once the bike gets put up after the roads turn to crap around here, I drive the Jetta. My wife and I commute together since her workplace is right on my way to work and we work the same hours, I just drop her off and pick her up. We did this for a short time using the bike but she said that the helmet messed up her hair.  :P

Probably cheaper to just buy another C14.

24000 miles.  Still loving it.  Mileage has dropped to low 40s with the cooler air.

We're still loving our JSW too. It's coming up on a year and around 9k miles time to change the oil. I'm too anal to take it to the dealer for my 'free' oil change, so I'll be doing it myself to make sure that it's done right.

Got 11,500 miles on my 2012 Passatt TDI, bought in August. I absolutely love it to death. The only thing I didn't like was the "beep" of the horn when I locked the door, and I found that that feature can be turned off. Still in love.

Just started looking into the tdis again and found a couple nice deals on Passats.
Price: $27,255 Sale Price: $23,555
Price: $27,290 Sale Price: $23,590
I'll check and see if the prices are legit and check them out.

As much as I love the Jetta, the Passat is that much better.  Looking forward to reading about your new car :)  I do warn you, you won't ride as much when the weather turns sour, the mileage is better with the TDi.

Hopefully the prices are solid and not false advertising. I was looking at the Jetta and the Golf until I saw these prices. I'll know by the weekend.

TONS of info on the TDIs here.

Be warned about the doom and gloom crowd though. To read what some of them have to say you'd think we were driving a time bomb.

We have just under 11k on our Sportwagen and it's been flawless. Still lovin the car.

I don't drive my truck much but I did fill the tank (35 gal tank   :o ) right after the local station winterized the diesel. I feel your pain. I'm taking the truck today just to get it out and about.
