OMG, the Caliber has turned into a MotorHome. LOL :eek: :D

Joking, glad you enjoyed the ride and had no problems towing the trailer.

How much can a CRD tow? The R/T can only tow 2000lbs with the tow package.

I've heard of CVT (Continuously Variable Transaxle) but not CDR.

What does CDR stand for?

Thanks.

Unfortunately the diesel is not available in Canada yet.

Obviously you are happy with its towing capacity. How is the mileage with the diesel?

It the engine of VW 2.0 TDI. On the engine it's marked CRD.
The difference is TDI is with 4 pomps and CDR is with 1 pomp.
I don't know how many pomps there are.:confused:

Maybe one on this forum knows.

Well, I know it, but what I don't know is the technical term in english (maybe something like injector-pump) however it's not a common rail, as far as I know VW don't use the common rail system at all.

Thanks for the mileage info. That is great and a lot better than the 8.24 that I'm averaging on gas.

I also saw a CRD emblem on the back of a European Caliber so it would appear that you were correct about the Common Rail.
