Title: Looking for your input...
Post by: madmedix on August 20, 2015, 09:22:09 pm
Hi gang,

It's time for a rebuild for ol' Mad Max [90 TD Jetta]; and whilst I have fun with that, I'm looking for a TDI. I seem to spying a lot of 2012 Jettas out there for sale with the auto trans; very few manuals. I'm having dreams of fragging DSG autos...hoping they are not the same unit. I love rowing gears. The boss does not....
I have to admit my head's been in the sand unless it's a mark II all these years...are there any ones I need to stay the heck away from?


[edit] OK, I've driven a couple of autos since the post above and that is one busy slushbox! I'm going to stay manual if I can find one in good shape. Anyone have any other pointers on things to watch out for?
