Five Speed Tiptronic Transmission!  In manual mode you will just be shifting out of second gear as you pass 60 MPH!  No problem merging with traffic! This unique Passat W8 has had only two owners - both with no children.  The present owner is a meticulous retired airline pilot who has spared no expense to keep everything in perfect condition.  When professional refinishing did not remove 100% of the headlight lens haze, both headlights were replaced with factory new ones, at $500 each.  Front brakes were just replaced.  Rear brakes are fine.  This car just passed the NH state inspection.  It comes with EIGHT brand new tires (less than 5,000 miles on them), one set of original VW alloy wheels and one new last year set of wheels & winter Michelins from Tire Rack - all wheels road force balanced. VW requires full synthetic oil and recommends oil changes every ten thousand miles.  I have had the oil changed every five thousand.  It has a trailer hitch which has only been used to mount a bike rack.   It has only been serviced ONLY by certified Volkswagen and Audi technicians.  It has never seen a Jiffy Lube or a McDonald's drive through.  No food has been eaten in this vehicle! In the three years that I have owned it I have only carried a passenger on two occasions.  The leather steering wheel is in almost mint condition because it has had a cover on it most of the time.  I just bought a new set of VW Monster mats at a cost of $99 - only because there was a small hole in the driver's mat.  Always garaged!  Other than two and a half years in New Hampshire it lived its earlier life in sunny Dallas, Texas where it was also garaged - so no sun damage.  Many luxury features like headlight washers!  Lots of parts from the Audi parts bin in this unique vehicle which originally listed for almost $40,000. Unlike later model wagons and SUV's the bottom of the back seats are hinged at the base and fold forward, providing a protective barrier between driver, passenger and any cargo. VW recommends premium fuel, which I have used.  However, it will adjust to and run on lower grades. With EIGHT cylinders the acceleration is smooth, vibration-free and awesome.  On cruise control at interstate speeds of 65-75 MPH it averages 26-27 MPG which results in a range of over 525 miles!  Note actual computer calculated range in one of the photos. Further than Boston MA - Washington DC!
List Price when new:  $39,275.00   All service records available. This car was ahead of its time safety-wise, with stability control and side curtain airbags!

VW readying new VR6 with forced induction

Fri, 27 Sep 2013 16:29:00 EST

Volkswagen built a stonking, narrow-angle V6 in the 1980s and 1990s that was found in three different generations of the Golf (their performance iterations, obviously), three generations of the Passat, the New Beetle, the Corrado and the Touareg, among other VWs, a spate of Audis, Seats, a Skoda, and even the Porsche Cayenne. It was a sad day when it was announced that it'd be put out to pasture.
Rejoice, though, fans of the venerable VR6, because Volkswagen has a new, modern variant in the works that, according to AutoWeek, features direct injection and can easily be fitted with forced induction. In fact, AW mentions Volkswagen insiders that claim this unit will spawn a production version of the twin-turbo V6 shown on the Design Vision GTI from this year's Wörthersee festival. That unit produced an epic 503 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque.
Don't expect a production unit with that level of power (although it would make a hardy RS4 powerplant), though. In reality, AutoWeek is suspecting anywhere from 340 to 450 horsepower from the new mill. When it arrives at an undisclosed date in the future, it'll likely be found in the Passat and Passat CC as well as the production version of the CrossBlue.

This Or That: 1987 VW Vanagon Syncro vs. 1987 Land Rover Defender [w/poll]

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 12:44:00 EST

As I scoured auction sites and classified ads for the perfect vehicle to take into battle with Autoblog Associate Editor Brandon Turkus, I knew I needed to find something unique. You see, I'm currently 0-2 at winning a round of This or That, in which two of our editors agree on a category, choose a side, and argue it out over a (mostly) friendly chain of emails.
The first time we did this, my chosen Fiat 500 Abarth took about a third of the popular vote in our reader poll. The second time, my lovely 1980 Oldsmobile 442 did just a little bit better against a 1989 BMW 635 CSi. Despite holding the opinion that my automotive choices, though perhaps a little bit more... obscure than my fellow editors, are still better, an outright win would go a long way toward boosting my vehicular self worth a few notches upward.
With all of that out of the way, even if three isn't my lucky number after all, I go into battle against Brandon knowing full well that I've made the perfect choice: A 1987 Volkswagen Vanagon Syncro. My rough-and-tumble van/'ute has a formidable opponent in the form of a 1987 Land Rover Defender, which, truth be told, is exactly what I was expecting from Turkus, a self-proclaimed Rover aficionado.

Volkswagen CrossBlue Coupe is a green fun-machine we want to drive

Fri, 19 Apr 2013 09:00:00 EST

Think back to January's Detroit Auto Show. Those of you that are fans of the Volkswagen brand, impressed with green technology or simply fall into the "diesel geek" category, will almost certainly remember VW's CrossBlue concept with its diesel/electric hybrid powertrain, seating for seven, and somewhat awkward crossover styling. It was an impressive piece of future tech, to be sure, though it left something to be desired in the, well, desirability department.
Here in Shanghai, VW has brought along a CrossBlue Coupe concept that would seem to include most of the goodness of the original, but flavored with more sport and style this time around.
The CrossBlue Coupe makes use of the same electric drive components as the larger three-row concept: two electric motors (front and rear) powered by a 9.8-kWh lithium-ion battery. However, where the original concept made use of a TDI four-cylinder, the Coupe substitutes a 295-horsepower, direct-injection, gasoline-burning V6.
