So it happened again yesterday. It only seems to happen at highway speed when the weather is bad (windy and snowy).

It's not that the vehicle power shuts off. It feels like the car suddenly...

Mine is a 2012 with 80k miles. I bought it CPO in 2014 and paid it off in the fall. I'd like to keep it for another 3 years, which would take us to the fall of 2020. If it lasts, I'll either buy...

I'm kind of thinking a failing rear shock. The car is due for service in 2 months. Can I put it off until then?

How do I know if there is some other, more dangerous problem?

Did the roads get bumpier, or are my shocks going?

I'm suddenly noticing the bumps a lot more. It seems like the rear of the car is hitting small bumps harder and knocking me up and down. Overall, the ride seems less smooth. It's not a vibration,...

Thanks for the reply.

It didn't lose any electrical power. It just felt as if I had suddenly slowed and then accelerated hard. Or as if I had suddenly downshifted hard, or shifted down and...

Wait... back up. I know that this is going to lead us down a rabbit hole (NPI), but the GTI and the A4 produce the same torque, even though the A4 has more HP. So does that mean that they will...

It looks like the A4 has a 5.1 sec 0-60 and 13.8 sec quarter mile time. The GTI is 5.7 and 14.4. So why do you say that the Audi is slower?

Everything I read says that unless you're taking your car to the track (which I'm not) the GTI is so close to the R that the extra money isn't worth it.

MKVIII

It seems like VW likes to give the current GTI the same HP and torque numbers as the current or outgoing Audi A4. Does that mean that the next GTI is going to get 258 HP and 273 ft-lb of torque?

Anyone have any comparisons of the GTI and 2017 A4?

I love how fun my GTI is, and I love the hatch. I also love the sunroof and the DSG. But, I wouldn't say no to more power, or a bigger sunroof, or AWD.

I thought about the Golf R, but I also...
