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 Volkswagen brand sold 407,704 cars last year, a 6.95-percent decline compared to 2012, and it's down a further 8.36 percent through the end of April 2014 compared to this time last year. In order to to put the sales football between its Strategy 2018 goal posts, the brand would need to add 100,000 more sales every year to achieve the lofty 800,000-unit target. Coming to grips with how unreasonable that is, VW US CEO Michael Horn has said, "For now, we have to have realistic targets."

The reasons for the brand's slow-down are imprecise, but lots of folks are throwing lots of reasons around. Last November, VW Group Chairman Ferdinand Piech told Bloomberg, "We understand Europe, we understand China and we understand Brazil, [but] we only understand the US to a certain degree so far." Analysts say the brand hasn't had midsize and compact SUV offerings, especially an overdue retail version of the CrossBlue, and the ones it does have are priced too high for their segments. It "didn't introduce enough new engines, or alternative technologies or model variants" for the Passat and Jetta. It devoted so many resources to China that the US market suffered. It was being outspent two-to-one on advertising by competitors. Its J.D. Power dependability ratings aren't high enough to overcome its past. It "has never really taken the US customer seriously." And so on.
There's still no official admission of defeat concerning the target, but reading between the lines there are some VW execs that appear to accept it won't happen short of some deus ex machina. Still,
The current Volkswagen Beetle already tries to be a fairly retro-looking ride by cribbing styling elements from the iconic original. However, for the new, limited-edition Classic model, VW is hopping into the time machine to grab even more vintage cues. The company is even cutting the price, perhaps in hopes of turning around flagging sales this year. You don't need to wait long for any of these upgrades either because the automaker says that the Classic goes on sale this week for $20,195, *excluding the $820 destination charge. That's $100 less than a bone-stock Beetle.

Starting as a standard Beetle with VW's 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 170 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, the Classic edition comes with a six-speed automatic and then adds some retro flair. It includes new vintage-look 17-inch wheels with simulated dog dish polished hubcaps over black spokes. It also comes with a rear spoiler, and the automaker is offering the model in Pure White, Black Uni, and Reflex Silver.
The interior mixes in a few more classic touches but includes modern amenities like a standard navigation system, satellite radio and multifunction steering wheel. However, the seats are finished in a two-tone design combining light brown leatherette on the sides and checked cloth centers, plus lumbar support for the driver's side. The shift knob and handbrake also get wrapped in leather.
Volkswagen sees a future where the bulk of the world's freight is moved into city centers by train, then offloaded onto a fleet of smaller, light-duty commercial vehicles for final delivery. Those vehicles could wind up looking something like the company's E-Co-Motion Concept that debuted at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The EV features a modular underfloor drive unit comprised of a battery, motor and gearbox that can be paired with any number of cab and body configurations to suit a buyer's needs, from a refrigerated box to a standard flat bed.
The E-Co-Motion Concept features a rear-mounted electric motor with 113 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque. A standard 20 kWh battery pack provides a driving range of up to 62 miles, while 30 kWh and 40 kWh packs could deliver 93 and 124 miles of travel, respectively.
