There's a wood floor, it's damaged by the sliding door from rain, because of the gap. The sliding door bracket seems to be broke and needs to be replaced to fix that. Some rust and a couple of dings. There's some surface rust, the only rust I see that goes all the way through, is the step up spot, just below the front passenger door opening. The interior is molded on the ceiling and a tear near the front passenger door. The interior side material is coming loose or needs replacement."
For sale by owner. I have the Texas title. Does not have a camper top. Ran great about 6 years ago, drove from Tyler to Andrews in far west Texas, to Dallas, and all around Tyler. Doesn't haul arse, but was fun to drive and we never had any problems with the motor. It has been sitting up and not driven for 6 or so years. My son just got a smaller car because of gas $ and then moved, so nobody has driven or messed with it. For that reason, I'd trailer it home and replace fluids before tinkering with her to avoid causing any damage. The mileage states 01,057. It doesn't have the 100,000 number slot. The guy we bought it from said he rebuilt or replaced the motor. She will probably need some new tires. It's a 4 cylinder automatic. There's a wood floor, it's damaged by the sliding door from rain, because of the gap. The sliding door bracket seems to be broke and needs to be replaced to fix that and easy enough to find online. The ceiling has some mold and the side material is loose or needs replacement. Some rust and a couple of dings. There's some surface rust, the only rust I see that goes all the way through, is the step up spot, just below the front passenger door opening. Please view the pics and ask any questions if you are unsure. Thanks and good luck!

The United Auto Workers have called a decision by the National Labor Relations Board allowing anti-UAW employees at the Volkswagen factory in Chattanooga the right to defend voting down unionization at the plant "an outrage."
Wed, 18 Sep 2013 12:30:00 EST
You'll recall that the union was defeated by a vote of 712 to 626 in a contentious February election. The UAW claims the outcome was unfairly swayed by pro-business, anti-union forces, including Senator Bob Corker and political advocate Grover Norquist.
This new decision by the NLRB essentially gives workers backed by the anti-UAW National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation and Southern Momentum a formal voice in the impending hearing on the UAW's appeal of the vote.
Volkswagen has been responsible for its fair share of witty, clever commercials. "Tiny Vader" might be the most popular, but somehow, we think this newest spot will find a big audience. VW delivers not so much a cover, but a reimagining, of 1980s Norwegian pop band A-ha's famous music video for "Take On Me."

The original opens with an animated motorcycle race, which is revealed to be part of a comic book. VW's version replaces the motorcycle with a Passat, which strikes us as an oddly sober choice when there are cars like the GTI and Beetle in VW's portfolio. But never mind that - take a look down below for the entire 46-second spot. For reference, we've also included the original music video. And if you aren't a fan of the musical stylings of A-ha, just think, VW's choice of 1980s music could have been much worse.
As Volkswagen prepares for the launch of the seventh-generation Golf, it continues to show off some of the car's different variants. With the standard Golf and the ultra-efficient BlueMotion Concept out of the way, now we're finally starting to see some of the sportier versions planned for the hatchback. Confirmed for a debut at the Geneva Motor Show, Volkswagen has now given us our first glimpse at the Golf GTD.
Just think of the GTD as a diesel version of the GTI with all the handling and styling upgrades, and then add a torquey engine to the equation. (We had the chance to sample the current GTD over the summer, so click here to read more.) To go with the new body style, VW also gave the GTD a new TDI engine consisting of a similar turbocharged and direct-injected 2.0-liter inline-four layout but with an output of 184 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque - that's an increase of 14 hp and 22 lb-ft over the current GTD. That's a pretty good oomph, but the GTD won't be setting any acceleration records with VW quoting a 0-62 mile per hour time of 7.5 seconds thanks to the car's 3,036-pound curb weight.
The styling of the MkVII Golf lends itself quite well to the more aggressive body kit found on the GTD (and likely matching the GTI). The new front fascia and blacked-out grille give the GTD a sporty look up front, while 17-inch sport wheels, rocker panel extensions and smoked LED taillights finish off the visual changes. The GTD will only be offered in three exterior colors: Tornado Red, Black and Pure White. As expected, the interior gets the plaid seat inserts and flat-bottomed sport steering wheel, but the car also gets stainless steel pedals, a black headliner, ambient cabin lighting and a specific gauge cluster readout.
