My cousin has a 98 that he has owned since then. His dad had it first then him and as far as I know I never heard him complain about it...I do know that nissan does make reliable cars though

Yes, they do share a lot of componentry, but Audi's are not just VW's with a different badge and a higher price tag. You said Audi is just VW's high end extension a la Toyota/Lexus etc. What a retarded comment, Audi wasnt invented to be that to VW over 100years ago. I'm not making any claims whether or not audi's/vw's are reliable or not....i'm claiming you make large generalizations about these brands.
Dont let your mom see you cry.

I know one thing, its a LOT cheaper to fix anything american versus something foreign. Ill stick with whats tried and true.

btw I got a friend with a vdub, he was sold on them till now. Biggest POS youll ever see. His moms passat had an engine oil sludge issue that vdub wouldnt warranty. He has had a ton of electrical issues with his gti. he wont buy another one once someone buys his. itsa nice ass car, but its about as reliable as a pile of dogshit

Ugh... I hate to say it's true... but it is. I've loved Vdubs and still do but still don't own one because I've see what my brother has gone through with his old GTi and his old Jetta. They're really a car you should own if you have the funds to keep up with it, do it yourself, or have a magical mechanic from Germany at your disposal. And sometimes you just get lucky and get one with no problems. But I'd say that electrical problems are almost always a Vdub issue.

So till I can afford to own the Vdub I've always wanted, I'll stick the the japanese cars that have always treated me better. I'll post a pic of my car for this thread later on too.

btw, thanks alasdairm for the explanation on the angled carrier, that actually makes perfect sense now hah.

LOL AGAIN, YOU ARE STILL TYPING You're have no point so all, and your questions lead no where; much of VWs and AUDIs are the same cars and a ton of people on this thread alone have testified to that. You are just wasting everyone's time now and you are below me considering I've been pwning you over and over Since you like to throw out things that don't matter, I'll do the same:


And to alasdair:
Read back and see there were 2 people in this debate. Don't chastise anyone, people can discuss and debate however they want, it doesnt need to fit your codes of conduct

we all have opinions here and can discuss them without taking it to a level too far. I feel this topic is hanging on a cliff...just my opinion

oh and for the record "cowboy kid" I never claimed that simply b/c one company has been around longer than another that means that they have a better product as your VW and SCOOBY example states. Seriously don't be a pompous ass just chill. I said that how long a company has been doing business HAS A BEARING on their product. It's common sense. I never said that the length of time dictates with a garauntee a superior product over a younger competitor

Twisting people's words to your favor is kinda like lame dude.. FAIL
Backtracking on your words like JBlaze=FAIL
JBlaze Don't debate if u start name-calling as soon as you start to lose, nobody likes a douchebag bro. Nobody twisted your words, they just embarrassed you with them. You said what you said, I mentioned correlation/causation(google it, or go to college) and I disproved everything you said and you could not handle it. Oh, and definitely learn how to spell "guarantee"(HINT: It's not "garauntee").
JBlaze=FAIL

A few people on this thread are, so done deal. Lets just keep showin off pix of our whips
Mine at the moment:

Not exactly snow material though, I'd love to get into something like this again(my old car, sold to a buddy now in North Carolina)


If anyone knows of an 03-06 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS for sale or trade lemme know, I'm super interested. Amazing AWD, rugged dependability, and 28mpg is just hard to beat Best overall snow car besides a WRX/STI in my opinion, but whatever we drive, I'm sure we can all agree that the stoke of riding is whats important, as long as we get up there thats what matters

First and foremost, you will never "embarrass" me especially not in a childish debate. You do not affect my life. Good luck with your cars though!!

1) I am not losing or winning. We aren't in highschool. This is not a contest
2) and you are right so stop acting like a douche ( I'm sure no one on this thread thinks I'm a douche )
3) I did go to college, been running my own business since 19. One typo, oh no, I must be uneducated.
4) Handle what, arguements with people that push pointless topics? Yea you're right I can't handle it b/c I have better things to do.
5) Let me feed your ego:

I am totally wrong, I must not now how business work, am uneducated yet I run a 7 figure business, you are always right, and you definitely wrote the book on "Audi, VW: Compared and Contrasted"

Sorry for the post Snowolf



Back to the topic of cars.
