    I love my Mk7 TDI wagon. The torque on the highway is fantastic and I just got back from a 550 km road trip and averaged 5.4 L/100 km.

    Is metric always gpm instead of mpg or is that just a Canadian thing?

    GPM is the go-to in Yurp, including GBR which I think is an inbetweener like the US. It's really a more realistic measure of efficiency.

    Whatever it is. In 'murican it's mpg and I'm pulling avg 40 mixed driving. Probably closer to 45 on long trips. So nice. #rollincoal

    No clue, but the units do make more sense because it's describing fuel consumption.

    It converts to 43.5 mpg. Not bad consisting there were zero fucks given about saving fuel.

    Apparently the front clips are a dead match for the front end of a new Charger which dramatically improves the look. I can respect it same as any other longroof though.

    I would recco the recall TDI to anyone. Mine doesnt have a urea tank and if wanted the retune to stock (better power and mpg bit dirtier) is cheap. I have not bothered as I'm old and she has plenty of power. One of the best highway cars I ever drove. Never downshifts and the torque pulls up hills.

    Again thanks

    "In the 1960's there were only 2 cars made in America that had Posi-traction and independent rear suspension. One, was the Corvette, the other was the 1963 Pontiac Tempest."

    That brought back a memory. I haven't thought of my mom's Tempest forever. It was a convertible. It was a pretty nice little car back in the day.

    Back when those Magnums (my, how poorly that name aged) were still selling new, I considered one. Long roof, V8, and AWD. It seemed legit. But I remember it being a bit of a dog and the interior was junk.

    I do wish they'd continue to evolve them with the Charger. My 5 year old son is really into Challengers/Chargers right now and I would totally be up for a wagon version.

    I love wagons. But that is fugly

    The D pillar should be red. As is it looks like a hack back. The wagon parts should blend with the sedan parts. Instead it looks like an El Camino or a Chevy avalanche with a bed cap.

    Oh no! Did it give up the ghost, or you're just breaking up with her and letting someone else have a turn? What was wrong with it? Just curious cuz mine is getting very needy as it approaches that third trip round the odometer.
