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.

Getting a new diesel-powered car just got a bit easier. Volkswagen has announced a new Jetta TDI Value Edition for 2014 that trims over $2,000 off the starting price of a Jetta TDI, making the most affordable diesel-powered car in America even more so. Prices start at $21,295 (*plus $820 for destination) for a Value Edition with a six-speed manual transmission, while a six-speed dual-clutch automatic adds $1,100 to the price. For that money, owners will get 140 horsepower, 236 pound-feet of torque and 42 miles per gallon on the freeway.

Despite the lower price and being down on content versus the previous base Jetta TDI, the Value Edition does come quite well equipped, with standard heated cloth seats, a six-speaker stereo with a Media Device Interface, satellite radio, and one-touch, up-down power windows on all four doors. Customers will be giving up some notable stuff though, including tilt/telescopic steering, Bluetooth streaming audio, power seats and a multi-function steering wheel.
Still, if you're aching to get your hands on a new TDI, this is now the most affordable way to do it. We suspect having the lower MSRP will help the German manufacturer make even further diesel-powered inroads here in the States, a land where they cleared their decks of over 100,000 TDI models in 2013.
Investors have canvassed courts in Europe and the US to repeatedly sue Porsche over its failed attempt to take over Volkswagen in 2008 (see here, and here and here), and they have repeatedly failed to win any cases. You can add another big loss to the tally, with Bloomberg reporting that the Stuttgart Regional Court has dismissed a 1.4-billion euro ($1.95B US) lawsuit, the decision explained by the court's assertion that the investors would have lost on their short bets even if Porsche hadn't misled them.

Examining the hedge funds' motives for stock purchases and the bets that VW share prices would fall, judge Carola Wittig said that the funds didn't base their decisions on the key bits of "misinformation," and instead were participating simply in "highly speculative and naked short selling," only to get caught out.
With other cases still pending, the continued streak of victories bodes well for Porsche's courtroom fortunes, since judges will expect new information to consider overturning precedent. If there is any new info, it could come from the potential criminal cases still outstanding against former CEO Wendelin Wiedeking and CFO Holger Härter, who were both indicted on charges of market manipulation.
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.
