You are bidding on a 2000 VW Beetle TDI  

My wife has been using this car to commute back and forth to work for 5 years.  44 miles each way.

Only one person riding in the car each day.  We bought the car in 2008 and are the 2nd owners. It had 109k miles when we purchased it.  It averages 40+ miles per gallon and it has to go up and down mountains because of the area we live in. It gets even better mileage on flat interstates on trips.

The car looks pretty good for a 13 yr old vehicle .  It has a spot on the front passenger side fender where while having it serviced someone must have spilled some brake fluid on it and I didnt know right away and it took the clear coat off. It shows in one of the pics.   We also only have one key and without a working remote.  Anyone whos buys it and has the time can take it to a VW dealership and have one programmed.   This is a used car and not giving any problems.

Nothing on the road gets better mileage than a TDI except an electric car.  Look around,  these cars hold value better than any simply because gas prices. 

A local mechanic friend of mine told me he has seen these diesel TDI's with over 500k on them. He said the car will simply wear out before the engine.

NA auto output to reach 11-year peak

Thu, 13 Jun 2013 08:00:00 EST

According to Automotive News, automakers are expected to manufacture 16 million light vehicles in North America in 2013. That's up 500,000 units from last year and marks the largest number since 2002. The prediction comes courtesy of LMC Automotive and IHS Automotive, which point to the improving US economy as a bellwether for total production. LMC Automotive says North America will produce 16 million vehicles while IHS has a slightly more optimistic forecast of 16.1 million units. A total of seven automakers are slated to increase production on the continent this year. Nissan is set to see the largest jump at 20 percent over last year.
Volkswagen, meanwhile, is one of the only manufacturers predicted to scale back production. Analysts expect the German company's output to fall by 23 percent to 170,000 units, thanks in part to slow demand for the Volkswagen Passat and Jetta.

BMW, Ferrari, VW cars use tungsten mined by terrorists

Thu, 08 Aug 2013 13:31:00 EST

Bloomberg Markets is reporting that BMW, Volkswagen and Ferrari have been using tungsten ore sourced from Columbia's FARC rebel terrorists. The extensive story focuses on Columbia's illegal mining trade and calls into question the provenance of the rare ore that is used not only in crankshaft parts production, but is also found in the world's computing and telecommunications industry for use in screens.
The ore is mined by the FARC (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia, or Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia - People's Army), and exported to Pennsylvania, where it is refined. The refined ore is then sent over to Austria, where a company called Plansee turns it into a finished product. Now, it's important to note that we aren't talking about the world's supply of tungsten here. In 2012, Plansee's American refinery purchased 93.2 metric tons of tungsten, valued at $1.8 million. That's peanuts, with the entire Colombian tungsten mining industry producing just one percent of the world's supplies.
That doesn't make indirectly supporting FARC any more acceptable, though. BMW, VW and Ferrari are all committed to not accepting mineral supplies from the Democratic Republic of Congo, which is also in the grips of a guerrilla insurrection funded, in part, by illegal mining. The same commitment would figure to extend to Colombian mining, but as BMW points out, it's difficult for a multi-national manufacturer to know where every item in its supply chain comes from. A company spokesperson says as much, telling Bloomberg, "These few grams out of the billions of tons of raw materials passing through the BMW supply chain are of no practical relevance."

1000-hp Mk1 VW Golf is terrifyingly cool

Tue, 04 Jun 2013 19:58:00 EST

There are plenty of things to love about the Mk1 Volkswgen Golf. The machine's horsepower isn't one of them. From the factory, the little hatch cranked a breathy 112 horsepower from the most robust form of its 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. Boba motoring, however, has taken that figure and multiplied it by a factor of nearly 10. If 1,000 horsepower sounds terrifying in a machine with a wheelbase of just 94.5 inches, it should. A massive Garrett GTX4202R turbo force-feeds the little mill through a tweaked 16-valve KR head. The crew calls the beast the 16Vampir, and we think that's fitting.
Of course, we'd wager you quit reading right about the time you set your eyes on that headline. Those of you who've stuck around this long can point yourselves below to see the maniacal creation in action. You won't be disappointed.
