  1. I can’t not tell you how many times I have seem it over the years, freaked out and pulled over only to discover latter that I was 3-4 pounds off. Well they have gone and revised that message to a less scary “please check tires” message.

  2. Jay,

    When will you show a video on the CC VR6 Executive features cause that the car I want to replace my soon end lease of my 2008 VR6 Passat.

  3. So, I guess my 2012 CC Lux Limited doesn’t have KESSY; which cars have this option? Also, just out of curiosity, do you know who makes the stereo system in the 2012 CC Lux Limited? All I know for sure is that it has 8 speakers and it sounds pretty good but I would like to know who the maker is.


  4. Jay, I’ve used the keyhole to get into my 09 CC and my alarm was on. Although I unlocked the door I set off the alarm. I don’t remember what I tried to disable the alarm, but can this be done using the keyhole? I appreciate the time and any help you can provide!

  5. What do you do when you are at a car wash or valet parking? I imagine a lot of the workers there may be clueless about this keyless thing.
