    I like mine...great little ski machine. Showed 28.8 mpg last night with that box on the roof. Get the S to avoid the panoramic leaky sunroof issue/fiasco/ nightmare for some. If you find one with a sunroof I'd seal it off with vinyl or caulk or something.

    Think that 9-5 wagon is a fantastic car for the money.

    I was thinking the S for the 4Motion.. Auto or Manual? Heard the manual feels a little sloppy

    Anyone have any experience with the new Mazda 3 AWD? It looks like a sharp little ride.

    Several of us Alltrack owners here, search this thread. I have the manual and like it. The VW forums describe a simple mod to the clutch: https://www.google.com/amp/s/forums....ring-Mod&amp=1

    Love the manual...it is why I bought an Alltrack vs anything else. DSG is an equally fine option for those that swing that direction.

    Sorry if my post made it sound like I bought the Saab at that price. I own it. Been in family since 2008 new. That 1400ish was just her latest repair tally at 160k miles.

    About 10 years ago there was a guy tooling around Silverton in a cherry b+w jacked 4wd Nomad. Such an awesome sled.

    They look sharp with a few mods!!

    That's a good looking red ryder.
    I had an '09 Jetta Sportwagen, sold back to VW. Now have a '12 JSW. Both TDI's...
    - 2010 - 2014, the JSW is a golf rebadged for NA

    Helluva better go'er than the jeepoo. Loved my pano roof, only a small percentage had real issues; a couple of minor mods for leaks and squeaks. Wish I'da gotten a pano on the '12 but good without it.
    And you can mod the shite out of them on so many levels.


    I like my DSG, get about 38-40 mpg daily. Got 35 driving to Alpy from JH last spring, loaded and a box full of gear in gnar weather hauling ass. And studded snows which have a higher rolling resistance.
    And I can race it up the pass with any other manual.

    Shaggy - Your location says Norwalk; My Dad is from Clyde. I skied at MT. Mansfield once as a kid w/cousins...

    There was a dealer from near Cleveland pushing VW buybacks last spring with a ton of nice deals, checkitout.

    Just because I've never quoted myself before...

    No you can't get much real world info about these because they haven't made it to the states yet, they're on the water. I checked out the sedan to get a feel for it and it's nice, even the seats are mostly acceptable. The awd is only going to be auto there's a stick but only in the fwd. Blah. Next...

    The hatch has some HUDGE C pillars.. Hopefully it has some blind spot monitors! Sucks auto only on the awd.. Didn't Audi just drop all manuals from the US? Might be a very bad trend!

    This is a great little write up on a wagon...

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/5372...09565445748677

    First ask yourself, are you ready to fight off hoards of women? Because this is your ride to cougar town, and guess what? You can fit 7 of em in this thing at a time. Comes with a pack of Trojan MAGNUM condoms because you can’t be knocking up every beauty you bring home to the trailer park. 5.7 v8 because there’s no replacement for displacement, yes it will boil the tires off, yes it will get sideways and pucker your butthole, yes it does leak about every fluid you put into it. If your grandpa didn’t have one of these bad boys in the 90s was he even proud to be American? Yes it does have the rear facing 3rd row seat, or you can fold them all down and literally live in this thing. You can live in a car but can you race a house? Been daily driving this land barge for about a month and a half now, but my old lady told me I need to sell it because of all the women she’s had to fight off. Runs mint, it’s rusty, leaks fluids, breaks suck but work, asking $1200 open to trades.

    But I think I read a mediocre review of the new volvos here tho- too much tech that messes with ones ability to actually drive? I think I read it here at least

    keep posting up the sweet new wagons here, gang, so I can get more ideas bc lord knows we don't need another what car/ski/boot for me thread

    3months in w/ the 2020 V60xc. The tech is fine, though navigating thru the touch screen windows was a little clunky at first. I like the heads up display projection setting for real time speed limit and current speed , and the camera system is robust enough for self-driving but hands have to stay on wheel or a warning comes on and it shuts down. Less storage in the seat compartments than the xc70, miss yhe front seat pocket for sliding wallet/phone into.

    Move upside and let the man go through...

    These look like awesome rigs but way too much work - like weíve gone to far and are fighting tech instead of it making things easier. I may be wrong as I havenít driven one but I want things in the following order for general daily drivers:

    Utility
    Performance
    Safety
    Convenience tech

    I know people will order those differently but thatís me.


    Have we started to expect so much from a car that it has started to demand things back from us?

    You can turn off almost all the nannies, navigation, etc. in my 2018 MT 340 x-drive, take it to the track and scare yourself.

    My neighbor has a beautiful 2016 328xd wagon. I saw her yesterday and reminded her I would be really interested in buying it once she wants to sell. Something about 40mpg really interests me. Not sure if a diesel wagon is the best call when it is freezing though. Anyone deal with freezing fuel avoidance?

    Generally a non issue since they switch to winter blends. I've started my TDI in -30C with no issue.

    The only concerns are if you drive south to where they don't use winter fuel and then head back to cold weather. But some Powerservice white would take care of that.

    Yeah that 328d xdrive sport wagon is sexy. Wish they made it with some clearance like an all road and it would be the perfect ski car. Apparently the new A6 allroad is coming to the USA , could be what Iím waiting for. Although that Diesel engine is badass in the bmw.
