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.

Recently, the finance arm of PSA/Peugeot-Citroën was in such debt trouble that it was pricing itself out of the car loan market. The rates it was paying to service its debt, which was rated one step above junk, were so high that it was forced to charge car-buying customers higher rates than they could find elsewhere. This was adding to Peugeot's already impressive woes by sending revenue out the door to competitors.

Two months ago a deal was worked out with the French government whereby the state would provide 7 billion euro ($9 billion USD) in bonds to guarantee the finance arm's loans. The French government could nominate someone to join the Peugeot board, Peugeot would guarantee more French jobs, and on top of that deal, other banks would provide non-guaranteed loans. The government would take no equity stake in the car company.
Although not yet finalized, the arrangement is meant to create some breathing room for Peugeot Finance to lower its interest rates for customers, and a government-nominated board member, Louis Gallois, was recently named to Peugeot's supervisory board. The arrangement was also openly questioned by at least three competitors: Ford, Renault - which is 15-percent owned by the French government after it received state aid - and the German state of Lower Saxony, itself a 15-percent shareholder in Volkswagen.
How does Audi plan to reach two million units in annual sales and pay for the 11 new models it's adding to its lineup - an expansion that may include models named SQ2, Q9 and F-Tron? By increasing its investment to 22 billion euros ($30.3 billion US) between now and 2018. That figure represents an increase of about 500 million euros over the previously planned outlay, according to a report by Automotive News, and that could be due to Audi wishing to goad the momentum that pushed it to 1.5 million annual sales two years ahead of schedule.

It's also about staving off the challenges from BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Now that BMW has been able to turn some of its attention away from its "i" series of Megacity cars, it will reportedly spend more than planned in 2014 as it continues the rollout of ten all-new vehicles and 15 new-generation vehicles through the end of next year. Mercedes, having been dropped to third in the sales race, is preparing to add 13 new cars over the next six years.
Audi's money is going into technology, into product like the next-generation TT and the Q1 and production expansions and upgrades all over the world. The expenditure represents just under a fourth of Volkswagen's 84.2 billion-euro ($115.7 US) outlay devoted to taking the number-one global automaker title away from General Motors and Toyota by 2018.
There have been many great car commercials over the years, but is it possible to define the best? Well, Ad Week recently took a crack at it by rating the top commercials of the year by looking at their view counts on YouTube, but Auto Express took a more democratic approach by putting the decision to a vote. Just after Thanksgiving, Auto Express came up with a list of the 20 popular commercials, and it tasked its readers with choosing the winner for the best car ad of all time. The winner? Honda's 2003 commercial for its then-new European Accord titled "The Cog."
While the ad never aired in the US, most car people have surely seen the impressive Rube Goldberg-style spot. In fact, the only commercial on this list that we saw on US television was the Volkswagen ad "The Force," but many of the others have become viral videos, including transforming and dancing Citroën C4. Of the 19 other commercials that vied for the title of best ad of all time, only the Ford Puma "Steve McQueen" commercial gave Honda a run for its advertising money.
