    I know there are not many Consumer Reports fans on the forum. Regardless, I am going to post the latest reliability data that CR complied this year form the 1.1 million car owners who participated in the reliability survey. The 1.8 is a problematic car.

    Does anyone know what the latest versions for the PDIM are? My phone acts a little quirky and I was wondering if they have updated the PDIM software. When they flashed my ECU this week it cleared up a lot of the annoyances I was having.
