2003 Volkswagen Golf Gti 1.8l 5-speed on 2040-cars
Dearborn, Michigan, United States
I HAVE DRIVEN THIS CAR PERSONALLY SINCE 2004. I PURCHASED IT IN OHIO WITH 10,000 MILES ON IT. I'M A 61 YEAR OLD PHYSICIAN AND THE CAR SERVED SEVERAL PURPOSES. IT GETS OVER 25 MPG, ITS NOT A HIGH THEFT CAR(BIG ADVANTAGE IN DETROIT) AND ITS AS MUCH FUN TO DRIVE AS ANY HIGH DOLLAR SPORTS CAR I'VE EVER OWNED. PLUS, AND ADDED ADVANTAGE IS I FIT IN THE CAR COMFORTABLY AT 6'7', 265. THE CAR HAS BEEN DRIVEN HARD, BUT WELL MAINTAINED WITH ALL OF THE REGULAR MAINTENANCE AND MOBIL ONE CHANGES AT 3K. THE CAR HANDLES GREAT IN THE SNOW WITH THE SNOW TIRES THAT ARE INCLUDED. I WOULD DRIVE THE CAR TODAY TO CALIFORNIA WITH NO WORRY. THE ONLY REASON THAT I'M SELLING IS MY WIFE BOUGHT ME A NEW GTI. THE BAD POINTS ARE SOME WEAR ON THE BOLSTER OF THE DRIVERS SEAT. I BOUGHT NEW FOAM AND WAS PLANNING TO REPAIR THAT. IT HAS THE CHECK ENGINE AND AIR BAG LIGHTS ON. THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS FROM ONE OF THE O2 SENSORS. I HAD ONE REPLACED,,,,AND IT WAS THE WRONG ONE. THE DEALERSHIP TOLD ME TO LEAVE IT, ALONG WITH THE AIR BAG LIGHT WHICH THEY SAY IS A GIVEN TO HAPPEN WITH THESE CARS. THE ONLY OTHER PROBLEM IS A DENT ON THE RIGHT ROCKER FROM ME TURNING INTO A SIGN SUPPORT IN A BANK PARKING LOT COVERED BY SNOW. TIRES ARE MICHELIN MXM4s, SNOW TIRES ARE FIRESTONE.
ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE CONTACT ME

2014 Volkswagen Beetle GSR is black and yellow, black and yellowThu, 07 Feb 2013
Way back in 1973, Volkswagen decided it was high time to take the loveable air-cooled Bug racing. No, it wasn't painted in Herbie colors - Volkswagen called its sport-tuned machine the Beetle GSR, "Gelb Schwarzer Renner" or "Yellow Black Racer." Hence, the somewhat shocking paint scheme.
VW is bringing its sporty black and yellow Beetle back for 2014, and you can see live photos of it above. It's got a 210-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine under the hood (that'd be the hood up front, unlike the car's forebear), and a six-speed manual or DSG automatic transmission sends those ponies to the front wheels. Note that this car's output is up 10 horses on other turbo VWs, and the Jetta GLI and Beetle Turbo for 2013. The 0-60 run takes 6.6 seconds, and top speed is limited to 130 miles per hour.
Besides the in-your-face black and yellow paint, the GSR is outfitted with a large rear spoiler and 19-inch wheels shod with 235/40 tires. The bee-like hue carries over inside, with yellow stitching on black leather. Only 3,500 will be produced, each with its own unique plaque. Pricing has not yet been announced, but you're free to read through the press release below all the same.
VW outsells GM in China for first time in 8 yearsFri, 26 Oct 2012
In case you didn't know, Volkswagen is hell-bent on becoming the largest automaker in the world. The German carmaker has inched closer to that goal, having outsold General Motors in China last quarter for the first time in eight years.
Volkswagen's sales in China, its largest marker, increased by 21 percent last quarter to 704,991 units. Those numbers almost tripled GM's third-quarter growth, and were enough to beat out the American automaker's 664,765 sales. GM, however, still leads in year-to-date sales in China by a slim margin of around 77,000 units. The Asian nation also happens to be GM's largest market, and according to the report in Automotive News, China's car market may grow to be larger than the US, Japan and Germany combined in three years' time.
About the news his company was bested in China by VW last quarter, GM CEO Dan Akerson is quoted saying, "It's not whether you're the biggest car manufacturer. It's whether you want to be the most profitable." It should be noted of these figures that GM includes truck figures, yet excludes Hong Kong and Macau from its Chinese sales numbers, while VW does just the opposite. Through September of this year, Volkswagen had 5 of the 10 best selling vehicles in China. GM boasted three of the cars on that list.
UAW angered over VW workers getting right to defend anti-union voteThu, 13 Mar 2014
The United Auto Workers have called a decision by the National Labor Relations Board allowing anti-UAW employees at the Volkswagen factory in Chattanooga the right to defend voting down unionization at the plant "an outrage."
You'll recall that the union was defeated by a vote of 712 to 626 in a contentious February election. The UAW claims the outcome was unfairly swayed by pro-business, anti-union forces, including Senator Bob Corker and political advocate Grover Norquist.
This new decision by the NLRB essentially gives workers backed by the anti-UAW National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation and Southern Momentum a formal voice in the impending hearing on the UAW's appeal of the vote.
