Newbern, Tennessee, United States

This is a 1971 Volks. Weekender (metal top = no leaks!).  I purchased the Bus in 1997 in Florida.  Body is very sound, with minimal rust for its age.  One bad spot in floor, drivers side(installed a metal plate when I first bought it, had no problems).   The odometer has 23,926 miles, I would assume thats 123, but have no idea as I am not original owner.  Rebuilt original engine has 40,000 miles and has been in garage for the past 5 years (not driven).  Ignition switch went bad when I parked it, have new switch hooked up but not mouted.  Motor runs great, has minor modifications:  2 barrel weber carb, step cam to keep up with interstate traffic!  Brakes are good, and lights, including interior and dash work.  Rear tires are like new, front are worn on inside(front end may need attention, but I couldnt tell from driving it).     All interior (including camping equip) is original Westy equip.  Interior needs minor TLC as you can see by the pics, cat damage to rear bench seat in corner.  Great daily driver, and with a little attention would be a eye-catching weedender!  
Also have lots of extra engine parts and some extra camp gear pieces, such as ice box pieces and also have the canvas cot that goes across the front seats(mounts are in place).   Purchaser responsible for pick up, Bus is located in Newbern, TN, any questions please email at seratt@cableone.net or call (731) 445-3573
Thanks for looking,   Jason

VW outsells GM in China for first time in 8 years

Fri, 26 Oct 2012 18:31:00 EST

In case you didn't know, Volkswagen is hell-bent on becoming the largest automaker in the world. The German carmaker has inched closer to that goal, having outsold General Motors in China last quarter for the first time in eight years.
Volkswagen's sales in China, its largest marker, increased by 21 percent last quarter to 704,991 units. Those numbers almost tripled GM's third-quarter growth, and were enough to beat out the American automaker's 664,765 sales. GM, however, still leads in year-to-date sales in China by a slim margin of around 77,000 units. The Asian nation also happens to be GM's largest market, and according to the report in Automotive News, China's car market may grow to be larger than the US, Japan and Germany combined in three years' time.
About the news his company was bested in China by VW last quarter, GM CEO Dan Akerson is quoted saying, "It's not whether you're the biggest car manufacturer. It's whether you want to be the most profitable." It should be noted of these figures that GM includes truck figures, yet excludes Hong Kong and Macau from its Chinese sales numbers, while VW does just the opposite. Through September of this year, Volkswagen had 5 of the 10 best selling vehicles in China. GM boasted three of the cars on that list.

IIHS says these are the safest cars of 2013

Wed, 02 Jan 2013 19:15:00 EST

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has revealed its annual list of Top Safety Picks, an award that highlights automobiles it says offer "superior crash protection." A new and still more significant award, the Top Safety Pick+ honor, is given to those vehicles that earn good ratings for occupant protection in four out of five areas of measure. And while some 117 vehicles were given the TSP seal of approval for 2013, just 13 passed muster for TSP+.
To be fair, IIHS only evaluated 29 vehicles with its new testing procedures for TSP+ (we'd expect that the number of qualified cars will rise substantially for 2014). Luxury and Near Luxury midsize cars were the first groups evaluated, followed by midsizers in the Moderately Priced Cars category - unsurprisingly, it's only midsize cars that you'll find among the class this year.
Only two luxury sedans made the list of 13 for 2013: the Acura TL and Volvo S60. The other 11 cars on the list included entries from domestic, Japanese and German car makers: Dodge Avenger, Chrysler 200, Ford Fusion, Honda Accord (sedan and coupe), Kia Optima (but not its close kin, the Hyundai Sonata, strangely), Nissan Altima, Subaru Legacy and Outback, Suzuki Kizashi and the Volkswagen Passat all made the grade.

J.D. Power customer survey of dealers counts Cadillac, Buick as big winners

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 17:35:00 EST

Cadillac and Buick have taken the trophies in J.D. Power's latest Customer Service Index Study examining satisfaction with dealer service. Surveying more than 90,000 owners and lessees of 2009-2013 model-year cars, the study found that those with pre-paid maintenance packages were ten percent more likely to buy their next car from the same brand.
Dealer satisfaction scores have improved overall, Cadillac nabbed the luxury segment ahead of Audi and Lexus, taking the crown that Lexus held last year. Buick keeps the mass-market dealer satisfaction win in the family, finishing ahead of Volkswagen and last year's winner GMC. The study also found that service department use of tablets increased customer satisfaction, as did "best practices" like "providing helpful advice." Who knew?
You can find details on those and more findings in the press release below.
