    General Maintenance & Repair
    I had my car in for a tire repair, and while it was there, I asked them to recharge the A/C since it had been blowing warm. And TirePros was charging $129 while Prestige in Santa Rosa wanted over $300. The tech charged the A/C and said the low/high pressure should have been around 35/200 but...
  7. Heat vs Touareg (and Touareg secret)

    Drivers Lounge
    Hi All, Thought I'd share a quick story about Cleveland's high heat today and it's effects on my Touareg. I was on a local highway and the "flat tire!" warning sign came on.

    Mobile Electronics and In Car Entertainment

  13. 90D7 Recall air suspension work not done

    Australia & New Zealand
    It is becoming apparent that even though I have the 90D7 sticker on my door jam, the dealer has not actually carried out all of the work. On my 2005 V10, the only work that had been done was 3 software upgrades. In searching the forums, it seems that all 2005 V10’s had the air suspension...
