I purchased this GTI for $8,300 on 12/30/2013 with 77,700 miles on the odometer.

I've repaced the powere steering pump & pulley belt, the front brake discs and front and rear pads. 

The paint and overall exterior condition is in good shape. The tires have 70-80%.
Exterior Condition: 
- There are a few tiny dings located on rear wheel wells and one on the lower rocker panel. 
- There 2 shallow dimple dents on the engine hood (hardly noticeable). 
- The passenger sideview mirror will be installed this week.

Note: The automatic transmission slips in 2nd gear. The mechanic explained that the car is basically driveable but will eventually need a transmission replacement. I have been using it as a daily driver. In order for the automatic transmission to shift from 1st gear to 2nd, I have to accellerate to about 5,800 RPM (approx. 25 mph), immediately let up on the gas pedal, allow the tachometer to drop back down to approx. 1,200 RPM, then slowly apply the accelerator pedal and the car will drive/accelerate normally to your desired speed. The transmission will reach the 5th and cruise control works fine, especially on the highway.

Volkswagen Golf Wagon leaked ahead of official unveiling

Sat, 02 Mar 2013 20:10:00 EST

Wagons ho! These three images of the upcoming Volkswagen Golf Wagon have leaked online ahead of the car's official debut, which may very well be at the Geneva Motor Show. Looking over the photos doesn't really bring any surprises - after all, this is a VW Golf with a wagon rear end grafted on, or basically what we expect next Jetta SportWagen will be.
We can only share these three images at this time, but fret not, folks. There's little doubt that all the details and images will be flowing from Volkswagen in short order. In the meantime, click on the images above to view them in high resolution.

Volkswagen looking to acquire Proton, Lotus?

Thu, 26 Jul 2012 13:01:00 EST

Let's say you're an automaker bent on world domination looking to grow your sales. That's going to have you looking at Asian markets, because that's where some of the biggest growth has been, and that's exactly what Volkswagen is doing as it considers making another run at Malaysia's Proton.
Reuters reports that Volkswagen is interested in at least a partial stake, if not a controlling interest in Lotus-parent Proton as a way to continue a production presence in the region without having to build its own factory.
Volkswagen already builds the Passat in a DRB-HICOM facility in Pekan, Malaysia, and plans are in place to build the Jetta and Polo there, as well. With both southeast Asia and its relationship with Proton figuring so importantly in Volkswagen's plans for expansion, buying into Proton can help ensure stability. Volkswagen is being tight-lipped about the whole idea, but CEO Martin Winterkorn did recently say, "it's our clear goal to continue the successful (expansion) course of past years with great dynamics and stability," which sounds an awful lot like deals are on the table to smooth the path to further growth.

NA auto output to reach 11-year peak

Thu, 13 Jun 2013 08:00:00 EST

According to Automotive News, automakers are expected to manufacture 16 million light vehicles in North America in 2013. That's up 500,000 units from last year and marks the largest number since 2002. The prediction comes courtesy of LMC Automotive and IHS Automotive, which point to the improving US economy as a bellwether for total production. LMC Automotive says North America will produce 16 million vehicles while IHS has a slightly more optimistic forecast of 16.1 million units. A total of seven automakers are slated to increase production on the continent this year. Nissan is set to see the largest jump at 20 percent over last year.
Volkswagen, meanwhile, is one of the only manufacturers predicted to scale back production. Analysts expect the German company's output to fall by 23 percent to 170,000 units, thanks in part to slow demand for the Volkswagen Passat and Jetta.
