****no Reserve Auction**** White Tdi Sedan With Brand New Tires on 2040-cars
Chatham, Virginia, United States
****NO RESERVE AUCTION****
You are bidding on a clean and very fuel efficient Jetta TDI with brand new tires installed on 6/14/2014. The timing belt service was done at 181,500 miles complete with new tensioners, water pump, serpentine belt and the heavy duty 100K timing belt. The interior has a few of the typical VW issues. One small radio knob is loose, the A/T selector lever trim is missing a small piece of plastic and chrome, the glovebox latch is broken (held closed with velcro), the center arm rest lid latch is broken, and finally the trim coating around the front door arm rests is imperfect.
I am the second adult owner and have driven it on the highway for the last 150K miles, commuting to and from school and work. No mechanical issues that I am ware of, just the ususal wear and tear of normal driving. I have always used full synthetic oil on regular oil changes. New battery installed about 6 months ago when it was cranking slowly during the heart of winter. Starts and runs great. I routinely got 45 MPG on the highway and more recently have gotten around 41 MPG in mixed driving.
Please ask any questions before bidding. You are encouraged to inspect the car by scheduling a convenient time to meet. Email me with any questions or concerns. Remember this is a NO RESERVE AUCTION so bidding without any intention or means to pay is unfair to other bidders. AS IS WHERE IS without warranty. Buyer responsible for shipping arrangements. It's a 12 year old car but I would feel confident driving it anywhere. PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS. Look at all the pictures and see the true quality of this car.
Good luck bidding.

Volkswagen is partnering with Target and Funny or Die in a bizarre ad for the latest Golf starring comedian Rob Huebel, probably best known for his work on Childrens Hospital on Adult Swim.
The commercial is titled The Way Too Helpful Neighbor and stars Huebel as the eponymous neighbor. The challenge is for Huebel to help improve his buddy's apartment before the guy meets his girlfriend's parents for the first time. The obvious way to do that is to slide a new Golf through an actual Target in Texas, while simultaneously showcasing the store's goods and the car's features.
The commercial is airing online now and on TBS during breaks in Conan O'Brien's show, with sneak peaks during other programs on the network. Auto advertising is becoming pretty normal for Funny or Die at this point, though, with the site previously partnering with Fiat for several videos. Check out the ad above and see if you think it works. Scroll down for VW's announcement.
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.
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.
