Hi everyone- I'm Revka, the Hatchbacks Message board host. As Host, my job is to assist you with any questions or difficulties that you may encounter on this message board.

You will find that Town Hall is monitored much more closely than most online Message Boards, and that we ask for (and receive) a very high level of courtesy. In addition, you'll notice that many of our participants are highly knowledgeable, and many are longtime supporters of the Town Hall community. I hope that you will become an enthusiastic member in this online community, too.

If you need help finding a particular discussion, or have any other questions or comments..., please post your message/s below. If the matter is urgent, you can also email me at revka@edmunds.com

Thanks for your participation at Town Hall! ;-)

    Here's a direct link to our ongoing BMW Mini Cooper (2002) discussion. Is this what you're referring to? Good luck. ;-)

    The fonts look different and not for the better. Did Town Hall change fonts? If not then I guess it is do to my changing the OS on my PC.
  • revkarevka Posts: 1,750
    I'm not aware of any font changes. Although I've never really paid close attention to the exact font we've been using here. What kind of changes do you notice? Did you make any changes to the text size via your View menu?

    Listed in the information area of Edmunds for new cars for the VW Golf/GTI under specs. it is stated the VW Golf/GTI is built in Mexico. This is incorrect as the Golf is built in Brazil and previously was built in Germany. Who is responsible for that section and can they be emailed about the error?
  • revkarevka Posts: 1,750
    You can send your feedback via this form. For future reference, look for our contact information in our Help Section. ;-)

    I sent one of those feedback forms months ago and nothing happened. Still the incorrect infomation persists. Oh well, I tried.
  • revkarevka Posts: 1,750
    When you sent your previous feedback form, did you let them know that you were expecting a response? Could be that they feel that their information is valid..., or it's possible that they're just very busy and plan on eventually getting to this matter. Not sure the reasons why, but very sorry for the inconvenience. All I can suggest is that you try again... or send an email to our Town Hall manager, Jonah Brown: jbrown@edmunds.com

    Good luck, and thanks for your participation.

  • Is there a Hyundia Elantra GT Hatch group.

    I'm looking to buy one soon.

    I bought a Santa Fe (Hyundai) pretty much bases on the info on that chat group on Edmunds.

    Thanks much.
  • revkarevka Posts: 1,750
    Here's a direct link to our Hyundai Elantra GT discussion. Happy shopping!

    Hi Revka!

    I am new to this Car world. I don't know which car is good for me to buy. I want a used car which works fine and can drive me to the places safely. I don't want many fancy features except necessary. My budget is limited to 4000 USD including all expenses. I am a student.

    I don't know what to look for in used car before buying. I have not used cars much so I am totally ignorant you can say.

    Please help me.
    Regards,
    Maulin.

    Feel free to join in any of the discussions here. Also, I'd like to suggest that copy/paste your message into our Used Hatchbacks - Got any ideas discussion. Let's see what kind of feedback you get there. Okay?

    I think it would also serve you well to read the steps (1-6) outlined in this Edmunds' article: How to Buy a Used Car. This should be enough to get you started.... Good luck, and happy shopping!

    Hi Everyone - Did you purchase a new vehicle recently? We look forward to hearing what you paid in one of our new Prices Paid & Buying Experience discussions.

    Also, if you scroll through the list of Hatchback discussions here, you'll notice that many of these pricing discussions are also linked back to this message board.

    Try using the open search box on the left side of the page to see if there's a "prices paid" discussion for the vehicle you are interested in. ;-)

    Hi!

      I started a new post a few days ago under the Hatchbacks section (Info: 2004 VW GTI vs 2004 Civic Si), but I'm having trouble finding the thread. Can you help? Thanks!
  • SylviaSylvia Posts: 1,636
    Yes, your post was moved to a discussion that already covered the comparison of these two vehicles.

    Best Hot Hatches - GTI, Si,...
  • trimixtrimix Posts: 9
    Thanks! No wonder I couldn't find it under the Hatchback section =)

    I am interested in a used Ford Focus ZX5 with all options (e.g. traction control). I have no idea how difficult it will be to find one. I am wondering if there is a site that I could go to that would list production numbers and installation rates of various options for the 2003 & 2004 Ford Focus.

    Thanks
  • SylviaSylvia Posts: 1,636
    Your best bet is to ask in the Ford Focus ZX5 discussion.

    Good luck!

    I want to post a question on my 93 Probe GT. I had it stored for a while and now the engine starts quick, runs smooth, but idles at about 2000 rpms and after it warms up the idle falls and returns to 2000, constantly going up and down...codes
    out of car are 56, 65, 14, 1 using a Ford NGS with a Mazda interface card. Car is an automatic and the O/D Light blinks out the code too....

    MAF is fine and TPS is fine too???

    Thanks,
    Dave
  • SylviaSylvia Posts: 1,636
    Welcome! I'd ask the question in the following discussion - Idle or Stalling Problems - All Vehicles . There are plenty of folks who will be able to assist you.

    Hi,

    I'm looking to trade-in my mid-sized SUV since I find I'm using it 85% of the time in city driving and the mileage (15-16mpg with premium) is a major bummer. However, I do like the spaciousness of the cabin and the roominess in the back seat, which makes a big difference with two car seats in the back. My wife's Outback Legacy feels very cramped with the car seats and is really too small for me in the front (I'm just about 6'0"). I thought about the Scion Xb, Honda Element but have safety concerns with all of those. Can anybody recommend a roomy hatchback that gets good mileage (24+ in the city) that also has good safety features.

    Any idea where I should post this question?

    Thanks!
  • SylviaSylvia Posts: 1,636
    Welcome! Try posting in Which Hatchback?.

    The Scion xB is covered in our Wagons area and the Element is discussed in the SUV's board. You can access these discussions by using the Browse by Vehicle pulldown menus on your left. You might also post your inquiry in Help me select a wagon to see if other members come up with ideas that meet your criteria.

    Also try some of the research pages:
    Honda Element Research
    Scion xB

    Good luck!
  • hi im new to the site and im trying to find the way to post a question about my ford escorts timing. where do i need to do this at or can i ask you?

    You'll probably have better luck asking in an existing and active discussion in the Maintenance & Repair board.
