Thanks, I dig the looks as well. I had super good luck with my VW, even bolted a supercharger on it for a while, but when the repairs started, they came in waves. I had my car in the shop 4 times in 2012 and when I had to take it back in Feb. I was looking at plugs, wires, and coil to the tune of $1200 bucks. Thats when I bailed. Now I can change a spark plug, but if you ever tried to work on a VR6 you would rather pay someone else to do it. Changing the water pump? Drop the engine. Might be better on the Passat since its a much bigger car, but I doubt it.
Stay away from the Chargers. If you go look at them, you will end up wanting the SRT and those are running big bucks. Dang fine looking car. I started out my search driving the new Dart, loaded with options that is a pretty nice car too.
anyhoo, not an auto writer or anything but here is my story from last month...http://www.seahawks.net/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=65464
