Year:1984 Mileage:0

Upland, Indiana, United States

Upland, Indiana, United States

Up for sale is a VW rabbit turbo diesel.  It has a hydraulic lifter head turbo diesel swapped into it from a later eco diesel model. This requires no valve adjustment. This is the most desirable of the turbo diesels because of its fuel economy and reliability.  The injector pump is completely rebuilt which costs several hundred dollars.  The engine has around 125,000 miles on it and has all new gaskets, new coolant, new water pump, new timing belt, new glow plugs, new coolant reservoir, new oil change, new clutch, new fuel filter, etc.  It has a performance air filter and tall geared 4 speed manual trans.  It runs 10 psi of boost and is a really quick, fun car to drive.  not slow at all like its non turbo brothers.

The suspension and steering sytems are completely new and rebuilt.  All bushings were replaced with poly bushings which dont wear out as quick as rubber and are a little more firm so it handles like a go-cart.  It has all new fuel and brake lines with new hubs and wheel bearing all around along with brand new driveshafts.  The tank was cleaned painted and replaced.  The interior is minimalistic with a racing seat and a factory seat.  factory driver seat will be included.  heat works.  all lights work.  wipers work and there is one key that works everything.   

car has minor rust on the tailgate pictured and some surface rust under the car.  nothing structural.  it is a very solid vehicle that I wouldn't hesitate to drive anywhere and should serve you well for hundreds of thousands of miles. No body damage, never has been in a wreck.  paint is faded and swirled but very few dents and dings.  windows are perfect. 

Has a clean indiana title.  odometer doesnt function and was replaced.  body has over 100,000 miles on it and engine has a little over that much on it and will run for many hundred thousand miles more. 

Ask any questions and I will do my best to answer them accurately.  I reserve the right to end the sale at any time as it is for sale locally.  A $500 deposit will be made within a day of the auction and the rest will be paid in cash in person upon pickup.  you can make arrangements to have it shipped but I would prefer you to pick it up in person.

Volkswagen planning Up! hybrid model using XL1 powertrain

Sun, 24 Feb 2013 13:01:00 EST

Even though we've finally gotten a look at the production version of the 261-mile per gallon Volkswagen XL1, this aero-shaped two-seater was never intended for high-volume sales. Fortunately, it sounds like the same isn't true for the car's diesel plug-in hybrid powertrain, which, according to a report from AutoCar, could make its way under the hood of another Volkswagen model: the Up! minicar (shown above).
A potential Up! Hybrid would likely be able to return some of the same impressive fuel economy numbers as the XL1, but it would be a more realistic car with more passenger space and greater production capacity. The hand-built XL1 will use a 47-horsepower, two-cylinder TDI engine paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, and the 27-hp electric motor and lithium-ion battery helps deliver an all-electric driving range of 31 miles.
One of the core pillars of the XL1's design is its lightweight construction with a 1752-pound curb weight, which makes the Up! a perfect recipient for using this powertrain since it weighs just 300 pounds more. The report says that the Up! Hybrid is still in the developmental phase, so a production version isn't expected for at least another 18 months.

Volkswagen Golf Variant Concept R-Line puts the sport in SportWagen

Wed, 06 Mar 2013 07:31:00 EST

With the introduction of the newest Volkswagen Golf Variant, we get an early look at what will most likely be the next-generation Jetta SportWagen here in the US. To further wet our appetities, VW is now teasing something a little sportier with the Concept R-Line. Looking the part of a GTI wagon (or a stretched Golf R), the Golf Variant Concept R-Line has a production-ready appearance that has us hoping we'll see this sporty wagon sooner rather than later.
The R-Line starts off with a new fascia that isn't quite as aggressive as the recently introduced GTI, but it gives the new styling some extra punch. Below the fascia is a lower splitter that visually carries back into the rocker panel extensions, and the rear of the car gets some bright exhaust tips and a rear diffuser. The Lapis Blue Metallic paint job probably does enough on its own to add a sporty flair to the Golf wagon, and it's all finished off with 18-inch split-spoke wheels. Inside, the Concept R-Line shows off sport seats wrapped in carbon leather featuring blue nappa inserts in the middle.
Rightfully so, VW brought the Concept R-Line to Geneva with its TDI and 4Motion all-wheel-drive system. A sporty, all-wheel-drive diesel wagon? Yes, please. Scroll down for the full press blast with all the details.

IIHS says these are the safest cars of 2013

Wed, 02 Jan 2013 19:15:00 EST

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has revealed its annual list of Top Safety Picks, an award that highlights automobiles it says offer "superior crash protection." A new and still more significant award, the Top Safety Pick+ honor, is given to those vehicles that earn good ratings for occupant protection in four out of five areas of measure. And while some 117 vehicles were given the TSP seal of approval for 2013, just 13 passed muster for TSP+.
To be fair, IIHS only evaluated 29 vehicles with its new testing procedures for TSP+ (we'd expect that the number of qualified cars will rise substantially for 2014). Luxury and Near Luxury midsize cars were the first groups evaluated, followed by midsizers in the Moderately Priced Cars category - unsurprisingly, it's only midsize cars that you'll find among the class this year.
Only two luxury sedans made the list of 13 for 2013: the Acura TL and Volvo S60. The other 11 cars on the list included entries from domestic, Japanese and German car makers: Dodge Avenger, Chrysler 200, Ford Fusion, Honda Accord (sedan and coupe), Kia Optima (but not its close kin, the Hyundai Sonata, strangely), Nissan Altima, Subaru Legacy and Outback, Suzuki Kizashi and the Volkswagen Passat all made the grade.
