1981 VW Rabbit Pickup Truck, 1.6 Diesel N/A engine. Miles are 304k and actual. Was going to be a project but as projects go I have others that need more attention.  I have driven the truck as a city commuter for the past few months. She starts cold, runs well.  Transmission works well but as with most MK1 needs the shifter bushings replaced and shifter adjusted. Driveable as is but tricky to shift. I replaced the lower radiator hose, diaphragm in vacuum pump since I've owned it. Body is rusty as the photos indicate. The driver's side A arm mount is rusty and has been reinforced with a metal bracket as indicated in photos. Rust on rockers, and drivers floor board. I have driven the vehicle up to 60 mph and it does pull straight.  The steering column bearing will need repair due to the infamous "clunk". Once again still driveable but needs attention. Heater core is seeping but she does put out heat. Wipers, headlights, and custom tail lights are all functional.  This truck is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end the auction at any time. $500 deposit due upon auction completion the remainder to be paid cash in person. Local pickup only I do not ship.  Bidders with less than 5 feedback will have their bids cancelled***** Feel free to email any questions.

2014 Volkswagen XL1 [w/video]

Mon, 11 Mar 2013 11:57:00 EST

World's Most Efficient Car Impresses, Not Without Compromises
Among our many duties at the recent Geneva Motor Show, we were offered a pretty exclusive drive in the new Volkswagen XL1 hyper-efficient plug-in diesel hybrid. There is so much that is interesting about a car like this reaching production from a major automaker that it's tough to know where to begin.
First off, you should know that - at least for this generation - there is absolutely no chance in Albuquerque that this "1-liter vehicle" (i.e. a vehicle that can burn just one liter of fuel to travel 100 kilometers, or 62.1 miles) will ever make it into the hands of North American customers. We, too, were having trouble imagining an XL1 in typical American traffic, surrounded by comparatively massive pickups and SUVs. The driving experience had us recalling a couple of weeks in 1999 when we drove the then-revolutionary Honda Insight hybrid on US roads. We keenly remember the feeling of being very small and vulnerable, even as we felt proudly green in our 61-mpg Tochigi pod. Thing is, the Volkswagen is smaller still, and nearly as light despite its more complex drivetrain and safety features.

Chrysler slows minivan production, hasn't built VW Routan this year

Wed, 13 Mar 2013 08:25:00 EST

Chrysler has slowed production of its Town and Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans this week, Automotive News reports. The Windsor, Ontario plant will cut its three shifts from eight hours each to four hours each in an effort "to align production with market demand," a Chrysler spokesperson told AN. Chrysler also builds the closely related Routan minivan for Volkswagen at its Ontario facility, but has not built a single example thus far in 2013.
Sales of Chrysler's minivans fell 15 percent for the first two months of 2013, and a large part of that has to do with the 26-percent drop of the Grand Caravan alone (the T&C was only down by one percent). According to Automotive News data, as of March 1, Chrysler had an unsold inventory of 24,713 Town and Country models and 18,547 Grand Caravans - a 69- and 43-day supply, respectively.
"No sense running full speed now, then have a lot of vehicles sitting around a few months down the line," Chrysler spokeswoman Jodi Tinson told AN. Full production is expected to resume again on March 18.

Audi investing $30.3 billion through 2018 for product expansion

Sun, 29 Dec 2013 18:31:00 EST

How does Audi plan to reach two million units in annual sales and pay for the 11 new models it's adding to its lineup - an expansion that may include models named SQ2, Q9 and F-Tron? By increasing its investment to 22 billion euros ($30.3 billion US) between now and 2018. That figure represents an increase of about 500 million euros over the previously planned outlay, according to a report by Automotive News, and that could be due to Audi wishing to goad the momentum that pushed it to 1.5 million annual sales two years ahead of schedule.
It's also about staving off the challenges from BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Now that BMW has been able to turn some of its attention away from its "i" series of Megacity cars, it will reportedly spend more than planned in 2014 as it continues the rollout of ten all-new vehicles and 15 new-generation vehicles through the end of next year. Mercedes, having been dropped to third in the sales race, is preparing to add 13 new cars over the next six years.
Audi's money is going into technology, into product like the next-generation TT and the Q1 and production expansions and upgrades all over the world. The expenditure represents just under a fourth of Volkswagen's 84.2 billion-euro ($115.7 US) outlay devoted to taking the number-one global automaker title away from General Motors and Toyota by 2018.
