    Thanks to our Premium Care coverage we were given a motel room for the night and a hire car so we could continue our trip down to visit my parents on the Central Coast. It was important that we made it as Dad has dementia and this is probably the last visit that he will remember who I am.

    Who else has a pic to share?

    Not too sure Pat but it looks like a valve problem that also caused the exhaust to rip apart at the seam, she's running like a bucket of s**t and sounds like a Mac truck. Very disappointing as the engine was rebuilt less than 5,000ks ago :(

    That's two down and one to go, our mechanic is going to be busy when he gets back from his holiday.

    We were hoping not to make him so rich in 2010 :lol: He extracted $12,000 from us this year:(

    Nobody would guess from that puddle.....coil bracket. The worse thing is..i had the part at home waiting to replace. (we're still working on the puddle that happens only after hi-way running)

    We've replaced all the obvious things and it still happens. Troy's going to take the motor out in the next couple of weeks..and fingers crossed it's minor

    I didn't think to capture for posterity, my last one was a tow to Newcastle from Goulburn .

    That's at least part of the way to Melbourne and back isn't it? I had an unplanned overnight stop in Goulburn, train to Canberra, taxi (with insanely driving cabbie at no extra charge) to the hire car place, then free car hire to Melbourne and back. The hire car (not VW) did not break down. NRMA will allegedly reimburse me at some point before the end of time.

    The auto transmission guy at Goulburn did squeeze me in the next morning and only charged $30 for his assessment. Nice. He was next to the servo just before the roundabout heading south out of town.
