    Time to look for an AWD/4wd vehicle for work

    So I'm a field person for an environmental remediation company. Sometimes I need to get on roads that are not paved, or graded... or even cleared of vegetation. Until recently, I lucked out and was able to snag the company Pickup/van/mid-sized car/etc. However, as our company hires more people...

    Tired of bubbling sidewalls

    Hey all, So, once again, my P-Zero Neros on Detroits have bubbled another sidewall on a pothole. This is the 6th tire I have replaced for this reason, always a front tire as well. Luckily I bought a wheel/ tire contract with my dealership when I got the car, which has paid for itself for the...

    Got a Call from VW service about Waterpump recall

    Anyone else get this? Talked to my service adviser (whom is a friend and fellow enthusiast) and he said it's for the water pump. Apparently they have a new revision that replaces the plastic propeller with a metal one. Still on the one that came with my car at almost 35K *knock on wood*. Afraid...

    Takata Airbags. - Yes they care for you

    Next time just install a wind sock and four 12 gauge rounds into the steering wheel. Much safer.

    My car usually tires to convince me I can get 340/tank, but that never happens. Usually around 280-300 before I get the dash light on. driving is around 50/50 city/highway, but I sometimes lean more to city driving. NJ is congested as hell...

    Walking dead !

    Sounds like Dr. Who. I don't hate this season, but it does get a bit rough to try and follow everything now that the party has split up. I knew Eugene was a hack as soon as he said what he was. Weird part is his lie saved Abraham. So, meh... I will still watch, but it certainly is not the...

    Civic Type R 2015

    Agreed on the longevity and reliability. But Honda also doesn't appear to be bumping any numbers. Their cars get heavier every generation, but the engine numbers don't increase. That's an equation for them feeling "slow and uninspired" down the line. Though this car looks fast and sounds bad...

    Stage 2 Intake Piping

    Okay, so this whole intake thing is a bit foreign to me in the sense of "stages." I searched the forums but couldn't find a straight answer to this. When I owned my MKV, the FSI's P-flo intake was only one large piece that went from the filter to the turbo inlet. For the TSI, it's now a...

    2018 Jeep Wrangler goes on a diet

    While true, fail.. Solid axle suspensions are preferable for trail rigs, as they are cheaper to lift and less prone to breaking. However, what kinda trails you gonna do on stock wrangler diffs. What are they? Dana 30s? That's less than a half ton rated Diff. Anything more than medium boulders...
