Re: New intermittent wiper/washer issue

I see similar issues where the intermittent wipers won't work until I switch on the slow speed wipers. A friend at work with an Aura has seen the same problem. I suspect a firmware bug.

Re: Spongy Steering

To UForgotten - The vibration when turning the wheel you describe sounds like the intermediate steering shaft. The shaft can be lubricated or replaced if lubrication doesn't fix it. I just had mine...

Re: Traction Control Prob

Re: Cabin air filter is possible!

I spent some time looking at filters on the Wix website. The filter for the Chevy Cobalt (Wix 24882) is 9.75" x 8.5". Do you think that would work?

Re: So.. what tires are folks switching to?

Re: winter tires for the aura xe

I remember reading some reviews that said the Blizzak's would initially outperform the Hakkapeliitta's but that the soft outer layer on the Blizzaks wore off very quickly. Once the Blizzak's soft...

Re: winter tires for the aura xe

Nokian Hakkapeliitta RSi

I had the previous model (Hakkapeliitta Q) on my Passat and they were excellent on snow and ice. They held up well too.

Re: Looking for Aura Steelies/Hubcabs

I've seen a 2007 XE with what I'm pretty sure were factory steel wheels and plastic wheel covers. They looked good - fooled me at first.

By the way, I'm still looking for someone to swap my stock...

Re: Anyone interested in an Aura wheel swap?

I was planning to replace the tires with Nokian WR P235/55R17 to get back to the original XR diameter. The higher profile 55 series tires should be better in the snow as well as riding a bit better.

The trunk on my Passat worked this way. It had the same compound link trunk hinge design as the Aura. I think having the trunk stay closed when unlocked is a good design tradeoff compared to losing...
