I've been lurking around here long enough. This will be a thread tracking maintenance and repairs on our vehicles. Current fleet consists of a 2014 Golf TDI with the DSG transmission, a 2011 Suburban, and a 2008 Passat station wagon with the awful 2.0t BPY engine. As you can see, one of these things is not like the others. 

Currently sitting on a conference call, I'll start a new post later and I'll go vehicle by vehicle. 

 

I love the GRM community, and look forward to being a part of it. 

 

I will leave you with a photo of the station wagon in it's natural habitat.

Welcome! I'm actually curious about experience with the 'burban of all things.  Been eyeballing those as a tow-pig that can also serve family duty.

The Burb has only required spark plugs, brakes, oil changes, and a couple window switches in 110,000 miles. It feels underbraked according to my wife who tends to call it the race truck. It serves tow pig and family duty wonderfully. It is about to need trans cooler lines as they are starting to seep at the crimp. It's been a solid rig.

Welcome

The newest body style looks good to my eyes. I don't make new Suburban money though, so used it is for us. She's ready to move on I think, to what I don't know.

She really loves those. We may look into leasing since she keeps the miles low. She's also a big fan of Range Rovers and the F-Pace.

 With a burb in that color you could totally dress like this guy and get away with it on the daily.
