The Passat decided that it wanted to give me a present the other morning.
Ran into the shop this morning to get paperwork out of some vehicles. There was a current-generation Pathfinder, a new Pilot, and a VW Atlas all parked next to each other, getting leather. For reference, the Pathfinder was a 14, and it had the horrible velcro-like crushed-velour that Nissan used in those cars until…
