You are looking at a 2002 VW Golf TDI. This TDI has a clean CarFax. This TDI has about 151,000 miles on it, which as you know is nothing for a diesel. These VW diesels can run well into the 300,000 mile range without any major issues. They are also extremely fuel efficient. This car runs amazingly well, today I drove it from CT to NH and back. The trip is about a four hour round trip and there were absolutely no issues. This car is loaded with options including a sunroof, Ice Cold A/C, Cruise Control, Heated Cloth Seats, Monsoon Stereo, and much more.
This is a used car so there are a few minor issues that could use attention. The flip up center console lid is broken, which is typical for VW's. The driver side power window does not work. All other windows including the sunroof work flawlessly. All other power accessories work well. There is a pulsate in the brakes, so they will need to be done sooner then later. The tires are about 50-60%. There is some staining in the carpet, trunk carpet, and headliner. The car could use a good cleaning. Cosmetically the car is in decent shape. The hood has some small chips from normal daily driving. The passenger side has a dent/scrape along the rear rocker panel, dog leg, and bottom of the door. There are two pictures that show the damage very well. It really isn't that bad and you could probably just leave it. I do not know whether or not the timing belt has been done, so I would assume it has not.
I am a dealer. We have a small shop off of exit 1 of route 95 in Ashaway RI. This is a wholesale piece that I decided to offer to the public do to the amazing condition it is in. This car is being sold AS-IS. Because it is a wholesale piece there are no additional fees such as the Doc Fee. You will also be responsible for registering the car in the state that you live in, paying sales tax in the state you live in, and other fees incurred while registering the car. If you are from out of town and you are flying in to pick it up. I will be happy to pick you up at the airport, as long as you fly in at a reasonable time. I would be happy to send you additional pics, I can only guarantee that pictures can be sent during the first 4 days of the listing. I also cannot guarantee that questions asked in the final 2 hours of the listing can be answered.

The struggle over unionization at the Volkswagen factory in Chattanooga, TN, continues to get more complicated. There's now a second union fighting to organize at the plant; although this one is staunchly against the actions of the United Auto Workers. At the same time, the UAW is still signing up voluntary members to its recently created Local 42 at the facility and is reportedly near having a majority of the hourly employees on its side.

The new, anti-UAW union campaign is being spearheaded by employee Mike Burton, according to Reuters, and he calls his group the American Council of Employees. He claims to already have 108 signatures in support of his organization. Burton believes that the UAW is harmful to businesses, and his goal is to force another vote to determine a preferred union among workers.
The UAW was initially defeated (712 to 626) when it attempted a union vote at the Tennessee plant in February. However, UAW secretary-treasurer Gary Casteel told Reuters that Local 42 has already signed up over 700 members. If it can reach a majority of the roughly 1,500 employees, the group hopes VW might consider recognizing it as the factory's union.

North American car buyers get a bit of a slap in the face when it comes to delivery schedules for new the Volkswagen Golf and pumped-up GTI models. We'll just repeat the old chestnut: It's worth the wait... even though it still stinks. This time around, Western Europe is taking deliveries of the new Golf as we speak, and GTI deliveries start between May and July. North America doesn't get the Mk7 Golf or GTI until about July of 2014.
So we approached our first drive of the new GTI with this chip on our shoulder: "You're making us wait? Well, then at least give us the exact car we'll be able to buy. No compromises, mein freund." And so it was that we extracted nearly all of our drive impressions from behind the wheel of what, for the United States, will technically be a model year 2015 two-door Volkswagen Golf GTI Performance with the standard six-speed manual.
Brazil: the country of carnivals, indescribable beauty adjacent to abject poverty, Ayrton Senna and old Volkswagen models. Only they're not old - they're new, they're just based on old designs. The original Beetle continued production there long after it had been phased out elsewhere, but the original Kombi van has lasted much longer. That ends today, however, with the iconic VW Microbus ambling out of production on the last day of 2013.
VW kept making the van in Brazil with the original air-cooled 1.2-liter boxer four until 2005, after which the original design was updated with a 1.4-liter water-cooled engine. Today, however, it ultimately falls prey to safety regulations that mandate that all vehicles - no matter how old their design - need to have airbags and ABS, forcing Volkswagen do Brasil to cease production of the Microbus after a 56-year production run. But the latest word is that the Kombi (as it's presently known) could get a stay of execution - or at least a resurrection in short order.
According to reports, the Brazilian government is looking into granting the Type 2 Microbus an exemption from said safety regulations, reasoning that the van was designed long before the advent of airbags and ABS. If the measure goes through, the Kombi Last Edition (pictured above) could prove not to be the last at all. So what do you think, should the Microbus get an exemption from Brazilian safety regulations for nostalgia's sake? Vote in our poll below, then have your say in Comments.
