Tdi Diesel, Metallic Blue, Like New Black Leatherette Interior, 50+ Mpg Manual on 2040-cars
of the car is in good shape
Centreville, Maryland, United States
You are bidding on a 2010 VW Jetta TDI w/ 6 speed manual transmission. I am the only owner of this car which was purchased 6/23/2010. Every service has been done by a VW Master Technician including the timing belt which I did at 130K (the timing belt is made of Kevlar and lasts a lot longer than the 100K interval VW recommends). If you are reading this you are probably familiar with the VW TDI cars and know that 163K highway miles is equivalent to about 40K city miles on a diesel. These diesels would rather run all day on the highway than sit still. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this car and will run great for many more years and easily another 200K+ highway miles as long as you change the oil with the proper oil type and change the fuel filter every 10K. I had this car Maryland inspected in June in order to buy out the lease and it passed easily once I put new tires on it. I just took a rock to the windshield and I have a brand new windshield getting installed in a few days. I bought out the lease planning on keeping it for a lot longer but I fell in love with the new VW Golf TDI last week and bought one so now I am selling my baby.
The interior is almost like a brand new car. Aside from minor wear on the steering wheel and shift knob you can barely tell it was used. I spend a lot of time in this car for work and I always kept it clean and treated it well. This car has a touch screen stereo with a 6-disc CD changer, AUX input to play your music through your phone or IPOD, and satellite radio. The stereos in these cars are notorious for going bad after about 4 years and this one was just replaced about 2 months ago. The seats are black leatherette and have always been conditioned 4 times per year. The drivers seat has power recline. I have the carpeted mats as well as the VW all weather rubber mats. I also have the trunk Cargoliner with the storage blocks to keep your items in place in the truck. I will also throw in the VW roof rack I have for this car ($300 new).
The exterior of the car is in good shape. The front end has a typical amount of rock chips for the mileage. The car was grazed in a parking lot on the left rear which left some very minor scrapes on the wheel well and a few dings on the rear door frame (see pic). The passenger side was also grazed in a parking lot which left a small dent on the door and minor scrapes around the wheel well (see pic). The rear bumper has some minor damage where a police officer's foot slipped off of the brake pedal behind me at a stop sign. He bumped the back at about 2 miles per hour and left a few ripples mostly on the plastic bump strip (see pic). There are a few other scratches on the car as you would expect with a used car. The car has been garaged kept since new and I wax my cars 4 times per year. There is no oxidation and the paint is still very shiny.
You can bid with confidence that this car will be very reliable for a long time. It also has a great safety rating and very reasonable insurance rates. I have this car advertised locally and I reserve the right to cancel the auction early.

Autoblog Podcast #327:
TheDetroitBureau.com reports Toyota has retaken the global sales crown. The Japanese automaker turned out 9.75 million vehicles last year, putting it just ahead of General Motors, with 9.29 million vehicles. Volkswagen, meanwhile, filled out the podium by building 9.1 million units in 2012.

Still, Toyota numbers fell just below projections the automaker made earlier in the year, due largely to a fierce territorial dispute between Japan and China that has seen mainland buyers shun Japanese goods. But the news marks a substantial comeback for Toyota. The company fell to third place in the global production race in 2011 after tragic earthquake and tsunami caused several plant closures.
In Japan, Toyota enjoyed a sales increase of 35 percent over the previous year, while the company's worldwide sales jumped by 23 percent thanks in part to new additions to the Prius line. The automaker is forecasting yet another increase for 2013, with the company projecting to reach 9.91 million units this year. Neither Volkswagen nor GM have released their own projections just yet.
Without a lot of information to go with them, our camera-toting spies have captured some new images of a Volkswagen Golf wagon variant that is almost completely undisguised. In fact, the one piece of camouflage on the tidy wagon would probably have gone unnoticed to most casual viewers. Look closely at the rear three-quarter view of the car and you'll notice that the apparent taillight clusters are actually fakes - the outline of the real units is faintly visible behind the blue bodywork and the sticker-like fake taillights.
It's a good guess then, that this Golf wagon (called a Golf Kombi by our spy photographer) is a prototype that's pretty far along in the development cycle for Volkswagen. We can't be sure what impact this will have on the company's small wagon offering here in the US, but we'd be pretty surprised if something very like this didn't end up as the next Jetta SportWagen. We might well have more information on that front, after we visit Geneva next week.
