 I am selling my 1990 MK2 Diesel Jetta. The engine is not running. I was driving and gradually lost power until the engine stopped. I suspect the head gasket, but I don't have a lot of time to work on cars anymore and bought a new car.

  I did a LOT of upgrades to the car and I think the VW community should have a stab at keeping this car on the road.

  It has keyless entry, power locks, power windows, Serpentine belt conversion with new alternator, Electronic compass and self-dimming mirror. (If you have ever driven these cars, you know the dimming mirror is a really nice upgrade) The vehicle has a Grease Car conversion. I actually only ran the car on Diesel. I wanted to get into Grease, but never had the time. So since I have had it it has just acted as a second tank. I also put some new Wheels on the car. Aluminum cast wheels. You can see them in the pics.

  The interior is blue cloth and had a clarion stereo. I put in a remote located USB connection to the radio, so you also have that capability. The radio has a module you can get for Bluetooth, but I don't have that. But you can upgrade it if you want to.

  Here is a video briefly showing the car and it's upgrades.   http://youtu.be/OmjrXhNsf6I

  I just want the car to go to a good home. The serpentine belt conversion was 600 bucks, the grease car conversion was between 1200 and 2000 the power mirrors, keyless entry, and power mirror was 600 to 1000, so there is a lot going on here.

  I am putting this up with no reserve and I will let the auction run. If it goes for a little or a lot, that's up to you. Just remember it turns over, but is not currently running.

  Thanks, I look forward to giving this car a new home. Great car for these tight times. I used to drive it 200 miles a day when I taught at MSU. It's a great car.

Volkswagen offers Beetle Classic, priced from $20,195*

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 14:31:00 EST

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.

VW budget sub-brand stuck in limbo over VW standards, costs

Sat, 01 Mar 2014 09:01:00 EST

Reports in October 2012 claimed Volkswagen had begun investigating the creation of its own budget brand. This came after having failed to purchase Malaysian car company Proton or produce a meaningful partnership with Suzuki, and after watching Renault-Nissan make piles of euro on Dacia and plot the return of Datsun.
For VW, more important than the question of what to call it was how to build it profitably and in a way that didn't damage the VW brand. According to a report in Autocar, a satisfactory answer still hasn't been found. The hurdle is how to hit "'necessary' quality and safety levels" at the price points needed to make the venture worthwhile. At the time of the 2012 report, German outlet Der Spiegel said VW was trying to get prices down to 6,000 to 8,000 euro ($7,784 to $10,379 US), about two thousand to four thousand euro under the price of the VW Up and in line with the cost of a 6,790-euro Dacia Sandero in Germany.
In March 2013, VW announced, "We want to bring a true budget car to the market in China in the foreseeable future," the most concrete move in that direction after years of planning to make a decision. Working with local Chinese maker FAW, it was predicted that the vehicle in question would appear around 2016, but as of November last year a final vote on it needed to wait until this year because "We are still working on the cost side" and profit possibilities for a car that "has to be durable, it has to be precise, it has to be safe."

2015 Volkswagen GTI [w/video]

The 911 Of Hot Hatches Takes The Compact Game To New Levels
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.
