  2. Volkswagen Tiguan Forum
    We purchased our first VW a while back. A used 2014 Tiguan. I've discovered the flipin' thing uses/burns oil. And naturally VW says unless the thing burns 1 Qt or more in 1,000 miles, its OK! No worries. Ours use oil, but naturally not that much. In the past 40 years I've had GMC...
  3. 1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    I have a 5 speed Mk1 pickup. They normally use 80/90w tranny fluid. It gets stiff in cold weather. I recently bought a Ford Ranger, 1996, with a 5 speed manual transmission. It uses automatic transmission fluid ("Mercon"). This fluid flows better at low temperatures and the Ford transmissions...
  4. Jetta Owners Club
    We were out looking at cars for my wife to replace her Ford Taurus. We took a test drive and really liked the car. But I've heard that parts are very pricey for VW's. I took a look at Rockauto and the prices seemed a bit higher but not outrageous when compared to a Honda Civic (the other car we...

    Hi All, Wanted to introduce myself. I was looking for a 2012 Tiguan 4motion with sunroof/nav & leatherette seats in California, but couldn't find one for under $20k, so I had to go with the older (09-11) styling and picked it up for $19k with 28k miles on it at a Ford dealership of all places...

  11. VW Tiguan Technical
    Hi all, I like the quickclear heated front screen provided by Ford, and understand it is now available on some VW cars, but not the Tiguan. It comes in handy when its freezing..as it helps defrost the screen..making it quick to scrape off. If anyone is interested, may be we can get together and...

  16. Jetta / Bora MK5 / 2005–2010
    I am sure this has been covered but the car makes a loud whining like an old ford power steering pump. And its not the power steering pump cause these cars don't have that part. The noise is loud but has been there for a while. Is it something to be concerned about.

  20. R32 Owners Club
    I took delivery of my 2008 Tornado Red R32 with 31,077 miles on the clock last night (12/13). I have been looking for one since some idiot ran a red light and totaled my tricked out 1980 Ford Fiesta XR2. Nice upgrade but I do miss my old car. Cheers, Craig
