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.

America's minivan wolfpack has just gotten smaller by one. According to Automotive News, Volkswagen officials have confirmed what we've suspected for some time - the Routan is dead. Essentially a lightly reworked version of the Dodge Grand Caravan, the Routan actually hasn't been rolling off of Chrysler's Windsor, Ontario production line at all this year, but VW had yet to confirm its discontinuation. However, Jonathan Browning, CEO of VW America, has reportedly admitted that the Routan is being axed, with remaining units expected to be funneled into corporate functions for "internal purposes."

The move isn't unexpected - the Routan has never been a big seller, with just 57,650 examples moved since sales began in 2008 - peak yearly sales totaled under 16,000 units, and that was back in 2010. And while many have talked of the minivan segment shrinking, Automotive News points out that the segment actually grew 14 percent last year to 597,118 units, though it should be noted that most segments have been on sales upticks as the US economy chugs out of its recession.
So, is volume-crazy Volkswagen prepared to pass on large family vehicle sales? Probably not - the German automaker has signaled that it plans to build a three-row crossover in North America soon, and we wouldn't be surprised if it looks an awful lot like the Crossblue Concept from January's Detroit Auto Show - minus the fancy plug-in diesel powertrain.
Volkswagen still has its eyes set on becoming the top global automaker by 2018, and to get there, it's apparently going to need more boots on the ground. Automotive News Europe is reporting that VW is looking to increase its staff by 50,000 over the next five years - an increase of nine percent - which does not include an increase in its US dealer network.

According to the report, a majority of the growth will come from China where the automaker is also looking to double its production capacity in the same time frame. The Volkswagen Group is already expected to rival General Motors for the top sales spot in China this year, and such a rapid expansion in the region could make a good springboard for sales increases in other countries.
Cadillac and Buick have taken the trophies in J.D. Power's latest Customer Service Index Study examining satisfaction with dealer service. Surveying more than 90,000 owners and lessees of 2009-2013 model-year cars, the study found that those with pre-paid maintenance packages were ten percent more likely to buy their next car from the same brand.
Dealer satisfaction scores have improved overall, Cadillac nabbed the luxury segment ahead of Audi and Lexus, taking the crown that Lexus held last year. Buick keeps the mass-market dealer satisfaction win in the family, finishing ahead of Volkswagen and last year's winner GMC. The study also found that service department use of tablets increased customer satisfaction, as did "best practices" like "providing helpful advice." Who knew?
