Question from eBay member: Are the running board rubbers and fender beading painted over?

Answer: Running board rubbers and fender beading are not painted. The rubber comes from Germany where the previous owner thru VW America located NOS( new old stock) and bought all they had left.

The German VW'S had color coordinated rubber to match body color. USA versions black only. Good Question.

Question from eBay member: Does car leak any oil? Can car be driven from Fl to Ca?

Answer: Car does not leak any oil or transaxle fluids at all!  VW's do not leak if properly maintained and built.

In my opinion car could be driven anywhere no problem. My question would be why drive such a spectacular car 3500+ miles . On a trip of that magnitude potential damage from rocks, truck tires,& who knows what could happen. I recommend an enclosed truck driven by pro's. This VW is that nice.

Question from eBay member: Do you have pictures of the total body restoration, is it a bare metal refinish?

Answer: Yes do have pictures provided by previous owner showing total bare metal restoration and refinish. Will be passed along to winner. Thanks

Question from eBay member: Has the structural metal (usually rusted areas on most) been replaced?

Answer: Both pans newer, front pan under apron ( spare wheel well) and rear back seat pan( under the rear seat seen from under car above transaxle. Yes you are correct these areas usually are rusted to various degrees. These were replaced by previous owner as part of a high end restoration process. A professional job, can not tell from factory lots of money spent.  All metal epoxy coated (sealed) then 3m truck bed liner the tuff stuff not undercoating or paint that comes off, this stuff is difficult to remove period. This VW is solid!  Thanks

Question from eBay member: How does car do in everyday traffic. I live in New York near the city so it's some stop& go and occasional expressway driving?

Answer: Car does nicely in stop& go traffic, as well can easily keep up with traffic on highways. Over the last year car has been driven and tested under similar driving conditions. Engine is 1385 cc with the MSD ignition system, Nos alum. finned valve covers( extra cooling) non crash box transaxle so 1st gear goes in at near dead stop. Makes driving in stop/go much more relaxing.Thanks

VW announces recall of 26,000 2014 models with 1.8T engines

Tue, 22 Apr 2014

Volkswagen has followed up on a stop-sale order from earlier this month, announcing a voluntarily recall of 26,400 vehicles that are powered by the brand's 1.8-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The new mill replaced the despised 2.5-liter five-cylinder in the Jetta, Passat, Beetle and Beetle Convertible last year. Weirdly, though, of the 26,452 units covered in the recall, only 1,655 are customer vehicles.
According to VW, the affected models were built between February 1 and April 6 of this year, and feature bad O-ring seals in the transmission oil cooler. Apparently, the faulty O-rings could cause a fluid leak, as they won't seal between the oil cooler and transmission. VW is blaming a material change from a supplier for the problem.
There have been no fires, injuries, accidents or fatalities relating to this issue, which VW will be fixing free of charge. Customers will need to report to dealers to have the O-rings replaced.

2013 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo Convertible

Wed, 10 Apr 2013

Less Flower, More Power
Pardon our political incorrectness for a moment, but the Volkswagen New Beetle was, undeniably, a "chick car." There was almost nothing that the New Beetle offered to enthusiasts (of either gender), and by the end of its run, VW had even stripped all of the exciting engines from the car's lineup. Looking to resurrect some of the excitement behind the Beetle, the third generation of the iconic car ditched the cuteness when the coupe debuted for 2012, and now the 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible aims to show how much fun drivers can have without a top.
Celebrating almost six and a half decades of the Beetle convertible, Volkswagen is offering a trio of distinct special editions that celebrate three of the car's most popular decades (the '50s, '60s and '70s), but as one of the unofficial cars of the 1960s, it would almost be a crime not to test this version, right? Besides, this is also the only special edition to get the turbocharged engine. While our first drive of the 2013 Beetle Convertible was in the fuel-miser TDI variation, our two-week romp in the 2013 Beetle Convertible '60s Edition came just as peak convertible weather was kicking off down in Florida.

Volkswagen shows off performance-ish Passat concept

Mon, 14 Jan 2013

As part of its 2013 Detroit Auto Show debut package, Volkswagen has rolled out a sportier version of the Passat sedan, though it's strictly conceptual for now. A small dose of go-fast visuals have been added to the handsome Volkswagen, including 19-inch wheels, carbon-capped mirrors, an advanced front lighting system, LED taillamps and dual exhaust. Some carbon bits and upgraded leather are found inside the cabin, as well.
But the real performance chops come in the form of a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that sends 250 horsepower to the Passat's front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. That's a good boost in power over the 170 hp of the base 2.5-liter inline-five, but not quite as potent as the 3.6-liter VR6. A lowered sport suspension and revised electronic steering are also on hand, making things slightly more involving out on the road... we assume.
It's not quite the performance concept we were hoping for, but a more enthusiastic Passat isn't necessarily a bad thing. Scroll down for the press release.
