In five years?
2001 VW Jetta 1.8T Wolfsburg (sold June 2003)
2003 BMW 330i Perf. Package (returned May 2006)
2003 Mazda Protege ES (sold in June 2005)
2006 BMW 330i ZSP (picked up in Munich, April 6, 2006).
I'm never satisfied. And I'm the auto industry's dream come true. I go through cars constantly and the 2003 330i was the only car I've held through its entire round of lease/payments. Before 2001 I had a 91 Nissan Stanza I drove from 95 to 2001.
#383 of 1379 I need help with a new car contract!!!!!!
Sep 09, 2006 (11:25 pm)
I purchased a new car last saturday, the car 300 miles on it, and the second first day blinkers stopped working, then, after 5 day engine light show up in my panel...
I live in GA, the lemon law does not help to return my car...beacuse it have not even been in the shop yet (i SUPPOSED TO HAVE AN APPOINMENT WITH THEM TO FIX IT NEXT TUESDAY, BUT THE ENGINE LIGHT CAME UP TO DAY)
Together with that they sold me the car with a contract that is subject to aproval, and they just ask me that the need that my co signer have to go like primary...and I have paper work again..will that be my way to finish with this nightmare?
So if i refuse to make a new contract they just have to keep the car, ant thay don't suppose to charge nothing to me?
I need help as soon as possible, if someone know about this, or had the same situation I will apreciate advises...I do not wanna keep a "new problem car"

According to Car And Driver's 2007 new car preview, the GTI's suspension will be lowered about an inch or so, and launch control will be offered.

Vortexers are saying that the lowering won't occur until December for 07s. Shrug. They'd probably know more than me about it.

What's interesting is that I've read a large number of (overseas) reviews of the Speed3, and THAT reviewer is the only one to have ANY issues with the characteristics of the electronics managing the DSC/torque steer management system.
I couldn't tell from the review but I wonder if a pre-production car was being evaluated? Is it possible that the behaviour of the torque steer management system was still being tweeked?
