Solid 1989 Jetta diesel, daily driver. Study the pictures carefully, feel free to contact me with any questions. Come drive it.

The mileage will be higher than the listing shows, I will keep driving it everyday until it's sold.

The body has very little rust, the worst rust being a few odd holes in the trunk wall. I touched up a few rusty spots with primer and OEM spray paint. The overall paint finish is fair. The body is straight, and the front end has been recently rebuilt with new ball joints and tie rods. The door handles are hard to operate, and all doors will open. The keyed cylinder for the trunk is missing, trunk still latches. No key for the doors.

The interior is old, and there are some stains. The cushion is crushed in the driver seat. A few trim pieces are missing or broken, nothing too bad, interior is fair. Brake pads, rotors, and master cylinder less than a year old. 4 new Firestone tires installed last winter, plenty of deep tread on the tires. Turn signal arm does not return.

The engine runs good and strong. New timing belt and water pump were installed at 250,000 miles as a preventative measure. Battery and alternator are less than a year old. I use a 50/50 mix of diesel and waste veggie oil in the same tank, the fuel mix is heated with a heat exchanger under the hood, works fine. The car has passed the Ohio emissions test every time; the emissions are clean, very little or no smoke. I replaced the glow plugs, relay, and block heater a couple years ago, all are still working. The AC system looks complete, but does not blow cold air. The exhaust has a new first pipe, gasket, and clips at the engine, and new pipe back to almost the rear axle. The muffler pipe is rusty, the muffler is not OEM.

The shifter is very loose, and it takes some finesse to go thru the gears, all the gears work. The fuel pump drips when engine is running, and leaves a few drops where the car is parked. The temp. gauge is not working, but the coolant system is full, and the radiator fan cycles. All other indicator lights work.

The Jetta is very solid and runs good. It is 24 years old, has old parts, and is driven daily. Sold AS-AS.

I encourage you inspect and drive the car. I work near Cleveland Ohio. Send me your phone number and I will call you back, or post any questions you have.

VW previews retouched 2014 Touareg for Beijing

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 18:00:00 EST

Volkswagen is in New York this week showing off its new Jetta and Golf TDI SportWagen concept. But in less than a week, the German automaker will be off to China for the Beijing Motor Show, where it will showcase the revised Touareg you see here.
A subtle update on the Touareg that's been on the market in its current form for four years now, the facelifted model features reworked styling front and rear, an updated interior and a host of new technologies to keep it current in the highly competitive SUV market. Among those new features are larger bi-xenon headlights, coasting function, Google Maps integration and a post-collision braking system designed to prevent a second crash.
VW will offer the new Touareg with a variety of engines around the world, but in North America it'll carry over the same six-cylinder powertrain options as the outgoing model: a 3.6-liter V6 with 280 horsepower, a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 with 240 hp (though torque isn't listed, we'd expect around 406 pound-feet, same as last year) and a hybrid that marries a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 to an electric motor that combine to deliver 380 hp.

New VW Beetle Convertible ad needs no disguise

Mon, 18 Feb 2013 13:01:00 EST

Convertibles make you do funny things. Ask someone if they'd drive a hardtop in near freezing temperatures with all the windows down and they might not even answer, thinking the question so ridiculous. Give that same person a convertible they love and you might just have to ask them to please put the top up even when snow is on the ground.
That guy has to take precautions to enjoy his proclivities, and as this new ad for the Volkswagen Beetle Convertible shows, not everyone understands. Have a watch below, and note that there's just one woman in the minute-long spot, and she's nowhere near the car. Seriously, why didn't VW run this commercial during the Super Bowl?

Anti-UAW VW workers move to form own union

Sat, 30 Aug 2014 15:01:00 EST

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.
