My car is going in for 100k service.
Is it OK to go without the belt replace at the moment? I know these modern timing belts can go "suddenly" without showing wear.
Anyone have any input on the subject?
Hi, Driving my Golf at 20 mph when suddenly crashed into two cars. The cause was a stress fracture on the inside of the alloy wheel causing sudden loss of pressure. Looks like the car is now a write off. Any claim on alloys from the manufacturer??
The key got stuck in the ignition and I couldn't turn the car off. I could turn it to the right and it doesn't grind like it does usually but can't turn it off. It took a lot of tries before it finally came out. Then it seemed to work just fine for about 2 days and then suddenly stuck again...

The radio in our 2008 EOS suddenly went into the "Mute" mode and the "Mute" button will not function. We do not have/use bluetooth. The Navigator spits out audio just fine; we just are muted in the radio/media portion. It seems to me we need the VW version of "Control-Alt-Delete".
Where exactly is the microphone for bluetooth? When I am driving at high speeds on the highway, the person on the other end can suddenly hear background noise and cannot hear me any longer and the call has to end until I get off the highway. Is this normal? Thanks.
