Complaints.com

Here is a interesting Web Site. I found a number of complaints for my VW Sportswagen Radio. I have no problems with mine but some owners did. Check out your Vechiles for Recalls, Lawsuits, etc. My Boxster has zero listings. Interesting IMS listings.

I am interested in why you say "Complete Idiots... whatever. Audi engine?" If you will explain your reason for your post.

Thanks!

Interesting but not of much value since it has so few comments.

For example, the site says that the 2003 model year is the most problematic but there are only 7 complaints and only 2 of those are IMS related.

Even worse, one of the comments is about Motor Meister, a well-known scam garage. I say well known because they would offer to rebuild a Porsche engine for less than 50% of anyone else - which should have been a HUGE red flag in and of itself. Then owners acted surprised when their engines sat there for 6, 8 or 12 months with no work performed.

There's just not enough data on this site and readers can find more comprehensive summaries of the wide ranging problems associated with Boxster ownership on this and other Forum's.

This site is not just about Porsche Boxsters. It's about all types of cars owned. There is plenty of factual data about many vehicles. As mentioned about my VW. Lawsuits, Recalls, etc. However I understand there will be some that will find fault with the site, and it's OK to agree or disagree.

He was quoting comments from your link. Did you not read your own link?

That site is pretty useless.
Seems like itís mostly people angry about their own stupid choices.

I read a number of articles. One list I read was about recalls on vehicles with the Takata air bags. I recall a large number of vehicles with Takata's were recalled in the past. I guess it goes along when stupid choices are made

Hey... I'm in a good mood... and it's after 6A, Pacific.

The site is a piece of s h i t e. There are far better sites out there and with greater cred.

Lew... why you pushing and pressing on that cr ap site, Man? You got some skin in their game?

Yelp. That's where I go. S h i t e's real.

Complaint.com or whatever? Hey, now there's a catchy name.

Happy Birthday.
