2002 Volkswagen Eurovan Weekender Pop-Top 115,000 miles/185,000 kms 2.8 VR6 Engine It is with extreme reluctance that I offer a much beloved 2002 Westfalia for sale. I am a fanatic of older German cars and have had a life-long passion for VW campers. The van has never seen winter, has only been highway driven and maintained meticulously with up to date service (synthetic oil only). It is in excellent rust-free mechanical and physical shape. The original paint is virtually flawless and the interior even smells new. The interior shows no signs of fading whatsoever; this vehicle has spent the majority of its life indoors. The undercarriage has been regularly rust-proofed at Krown and is spotless and easy to service as a result. All seats look and support as if they were absolutely brand new. Service over the years has been performed by Bytek Volkswagen in Ottawa then Don Valley Volkswagen and Chris Symes at S&S Motors in Toronto (Euro specialists). All original books come with the vehicle and most of the service history is in the file with complete details available for the past three years. The van needs no conversion work for U.S. registration; even the speedometer is already in kilometers and miles. To the best of my knowledge it also shouldn’t require any work for safety certification in any jurisdiction; the tires have about 80% tread remaining, the rotors and brakes have very few miles on them. Features: - Comfortably seats 7 (or 6 without the additional jump seat in place behind the front passenger) - Sleeps 4 - Built-in 12v cooler mounted under jump-seat located behind driver’s seat - Power windows - Heated front seats - Cruise control - All original privacy curtains included along with full rear hatch screen, child safety barrier for upper deck and rare side door zip-up screen. - Auxilary battery (under driver’s seat) to power interior lights amenities without draining main battery. Additional features: - VW factory tow package including flat multi-pin trailer lighting cable that appears to be virtually unused - VW mudflaps - VW dealer installed rear parking sensors - UV block tinted windows - A full set of after-market German louvered window inserts for secure, rain-free ventilation from the front and side windows when parked or camping (pictured unmounted in trunk) - Built in 12-CD changer - Dash-mounted VW fold down shelf/cup holder - One year old front VW Eurovan-specific soft rubber mats - All weather carpet mat for rear passenger floor (not pictured) - Clear 3M scuff guards installed and like new on both front door thresholds A few items to point out: - This is not a brand new vehicle; are a few light marks in places thanks to less conscientious folk in parking lots and very minor chips on the front from highway travel. - As pictured, the upper tent has some easily repairable issues where the front panel has been, unfortunately, pinched by the pop-top closing mechanism. - At some point the previous owner (I am the second) had a valance mounted over the side door. When the valance was removed, the screw holes were sealed with silicone. These are barely noticeable and would be covered if a new valance were to be installed. The Eurovan MV Weekender is one of the most versatile vehicles ever produced. In addition to the purely recreational capabilities of the van, I often used to sit (and buckle up) in the back and do hours of work with my laptop on the table while my wife drove on long trips (see photo), using my phone as a wifi hotspot and an inverter plugged into one of the rear 12v jacks for power. VW vans may not often be thought of as mobile business centers, but that’s exactly what they can be when you need them to!

Volkswagen breaks 40-year-old sales record in 2012

Sun, 13 Jan 2013

The last time Volkswagen moved this many vehicles in America in one year, Richard Nixon was still a President in good standing, Let It Be was a radio hit and each car wearing the VW badge boasted an air-cooled engine. That's right, with a grand total of 580,286 vehicles sold in the US last year, the VW Group has broken its own four-decades-old sales record by 2,899 vehicles.
Of that 580k total sold, 438k were Volkswagens and 139k were Audi products - increases of 35.1 percent and 18.5 percent, respectively, in year-over-year sales. The ultra-premium members of the VW group also fared well; Bentley delivered 2,315 vehicles for a 23.3-precent increase, and Lamborghini delivered 520 units for a 52.9-percent jump. Bugatti, we're told is "right on track."
Jetta (pictured) sales paced the marque with 170k models sold, and Passat also finished very strong with sales of 117k total. Tiguan also racked up its best year on file, with 31,731 models shifted.

Toyota reclaims global sales crown, GM and VW not far behind

Mon, 28 Jan 2013 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.

Brazil contemplates safety exemption for VW Kombi as it goes out of production today [w/poll]

Tue, 31 Dec 2013

Brazil: the country of carnivals, indescribable beauty adjacent to abject poverty, Ayrton Senna and old Volkswagen models. Only they're not old - they're new, they're just based on old designs. The original Beetle continued production there long after it had been phased out elsewhere, but the original Kombi van has lasted much longer. That ends today, however, with the iconic VW Microbus ambling out of production on the last day of 2013.
VW kept making the van in Brazil with the original air-cooled 1.2-liter boxer four until 2005, after which the original design was updated with a 1.4-liter water-cooled engine. Today, however, it ultimately falls prey to safety regulations that mandate that all vehicles - no matter how old their design - need to have airbags and ABS, forcing Volkswagen do Brasil to cease production of the Microbus after a 56-year production run. But the latest word is that the Kombi (as it's presently known) could get a stay of execution - or at least a resurrection in short order.
According to reports, the Brazilian government is looking into granting the Type 2 Microbus an exemption from said safety regulations, reasoning that the van was designed long before the advent of airbags and ABS. If the measure goes through, the Kombi Last Edition (pictured above) could prove not to be the last at all. So what do you think, should the Microbus get an exemption from Brazilian safety regulations for nostalgia's sake? Vote in our poll below, then have your say in Comments.
