    Hi all, I have been running Castrol 20w50 since we bought the car in 2016 and I am thinking of switching to Shell Rotella T4 15w40.

  13. Air-cooled / FAQs
    Just found your site; I have owned my 74 "orange" Love Bug since new. Purchased during the fuel crisis of 1973...traded my Olds 442 for it. I live in Texas, so stopped driving it in 1980 when we had a string of 40+ 100 degree days. I retired in 2016 and decided it was time to "un-retire" the...

    I just went over 101K and my car is running flawlessly. Always has been a stellar performer, and it has been a a perfect 10 in the maintenance dept.

    Dear VW, We are new 2019 Jetta SEL owners. By "we", that includes our 7 lb pooch. There are times we go places that are not dog-friendly.
