THIS JETTA GLI IS A RARE COMBINATION OF COLOR & OPTIONS.  IT WAS PURCHASED ON NOVEMBER 30, 2011 and garaged and babied ever since!

From the Editors of AutoWeek written April 25, 2013: The Jetta is Volkswagen's franchise player in the United States. Last year, two of every five VWs sold here were a Jetta. The success springs from a simple formula: Combine a roomy compact sedan with a firm German ride and a sticker price that doesn't break the bank. It's been a winner for more than three decades in the States. The sixth-generation Jetta arrived two summers ago as a 2011 model. Designed with Americans in mind - part of VW's plan to boost US sales to 800,000 units by 2018 - the wheelbase grew 2.9 inches for more rear-seat legroom. New styling and a 0.8-inch cut in height resulted in a wider, sportier look. In its first full year on the market, sales soared 43.9 percent. VW swapped the previous generation's platform independent rear suspension for a beam axle and shifted the faux leather for upper trim levels. Low-level models sported too much hard plastic on the inside. To some, this Jetta felt cheap. Not so with the Jetta GLI which returned for the 2012 model year. Here is a well-equipped sixth-generation car with an independent rear suspension, sport tuning, lowered ride height and a limited-slip differential. Spotters should look for the larger front spoiler with vertical fog lights, red brake calipers and dual exhaust tips. Inside, the GLI is fitted for serious fun with large-bolster sport seats and a leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel and shifter, all with contrast red stitching. Your feet play with aluminum petals. Upgrading the Jetta GLI to the Autobahn trim gets you the Fender Panasonic audio system with 400 watts of sonic boom and a subwoofer in the trunk. VW fans recognize the upgraded hardware - it comes from the revered Golf GLI hatchback. But on the showroom floor, Americans overwhelmingly choose sedans. The GLI also donates Volkswagen's vaunted 2.0 liter TSI turbocharged four-cylinder, rated at 200 HP and 207 lb-ft of torque. Power flows to the front wheels through a six-speed manual or six-speed dual-clutch automated transmission. The purist in us favors the manual, but we tested a 2012 Jetta GLI with the DSG dual-clutch transmission. The first thing we learned is that the traction and stability control cannot be turned off. So a 0-60 mph sprint starts with a brief burst of wheel spin at launch as the turbo burst rises but is quickly shut down by the electronic watchdogs. We reached 60 mph in 6.5 seconds and covered the quarter-mile in 15.1 seconds at 93.3 mph. Now here's a hint for DSG owners: Put the shifter in sport mode, which permits the engine to briefly rev past the 6,000-rpm redline before changing gears. Thrown into corners, it takes a little care to push the GLI just short of the limit, where the momentum-killing electronics take over. We covered the slalom in 7.9 seconds at 42.4 mph and pulled 0.84 g on the skid pad. Overall, the car feels quite stable and the sport seats grip you without inflicting pain. The Jetta GLI's performance makes owners grin, but the value - on the sticker and at the gas pump - has them bust out in a smile. The car feels as planted as a BMW 3-series wrote one owner. For me, the price, performance and extra equipment make this the best all-around car for an enthusiast on a budget. We agree.

How VW's hyper-efficient XL1 will influence the next Golf

Mon, 18 Aug 2014

In 2007, the European Union mandated fleet average CO2 emissions of 158.7 g/km. For 2015, that figure will drop to 130 g/km, and the target for 2020 is an ambitions 95 g/km. Thanks to some German politicking, that target will be phased in from 2020 to 2024, but it will still apply to 80 percent of passenger cars in that first year. In US miles per gallon, that's the equivalent of going from about 35 mpg to 42 mpg to 57 mpg. The current Volkswagen Golf is rated from 85 g/km of CO2 to 190 g/km depending on model - and zero for the e-Golf, so for the next-generation MkVIII hatch due in 2019, to meet the goal, Volkswagen engineers will need to introduce a bunch of new tricks. According to a report in Autocar, VW be mining its hyper-efficient XL1 for some of them.
Predictions for the next Golf include a variable-compression engine, an electric flywheel and an electric turbo, along with taking greater advantage of coasting. Volkswagen could be getting help from Audi with the electric turbo and variable-compression engine and electric turbo, with Audi already having shown off the former and brand technical boss Ulrich Hackenberg confirming the VW Group is working on the latter. It's possible the flywheel system could also have the mark of The Four Rings: Autocar mentions a British system that Volvo is testing, but the R18 e-tron Quattro racer has been using one for years.
The need for such features is because the company won't be able to net enough future gains from just aerodynamic improvements and advanced materials. As price will be a factor (the regulations are expected to "add hundreds of euros to the cost of building a car"), adding much more aluminum or carbon fiber is an unlikely option. We're told the next generation won't be longer or wider than the current car, and being Europe's most popular model, VW doesn't want to make a big bet on futuristic aero, but the report says the MkVIII will "likely" have "the most aerodynamic treatment yet seen on a production vehicle," the area where lessons learned from the XL1 will truly be seen.

VW recalling 2.64M vehicles worldwide over engine, light issues

Thu, 14 Nov 2013

Volkswagen is staging a massive, worldwide recall that's already grown from 1.68 million to 2.64 million vehicles and covers three different issues across a number of vehicles. We already reported on 61,000 Tiguans getting recalled over lighting issues - that was just in the US. Globally, however, VW will be recalling 800,000 Tiguans, according to Automotive News, with the focus on CUVs built between 2008 and 2011. The issue with the Tiguan relates to a simple fuse swap, so this is rather unremarkable, aside from the sheer number of vehicles being fixed. The real, troubling issues relate to gearboxes and pickups.
239,000 Amarok pickups (pictured right) are being recalled over fuel leaks, while 1.6 million vehicles are being recalled to swap the synthetic oil in dual-clutch transmissions with mineral oil. Now, the transmission issue is one for the global Volkswagen Group to address, not just the VW brand - vehicles from Audi, Škoda and Seat use the same seven-speed DSG and are covered under the recall, as well.
Why the switch from synthetic to mineral oil? Apparently, using the synthetic oil in a DSG and then subjecting it to stop-and-go conditions or heavy loads in a hot and humid climate can lead to electronic malfunctions, according to a Volkswagen press release. The switch, from the sounds of it, is largely a preventative measure.

UK auto magazine says this is the best car commercial of all time [w/videos]

Thu, 20 Dec 2012

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.
