  8. How to set stereo to remember the last volume level?

    Volkswagen Tiguan Forum
    This may sound like a dumb question... But every time I start the car the radio turns on at the same volume level which is a little too high for me first thing in the morning. Every car I have had in the past 35 years had radio turn on at the level it was when I turned the car off earlier. How...

  12. Rabbit or Rabbit S?

    VW Rabbit MKV Forum 2006/2007/2008/2009
    How can you tell the difference? I've been led to believe I have the Rabbit S. It's an '08. I'm sorry if this sounds like a dumb question, but I've had the car for roughly a year. I believe the paper (when I bought it from the dealer) said "Rabbit S," but I got it at a Nissan dealer, and I was...

  20. 2008 Rabbit 2 door hatch 2.5L Where is the Air Filter Located?

    May be a dumb question. My owners manual is for people who take their car into the garage to add washer fluid, so it is very sparse with information.
