THIS JETTA GLI IS A RARE COMBINATION OF COLOR & OPTIONS.  IT WAS PURCHASED ON NOVEMBER 30, 2011 and garaged and babied ever since!

From the Editors of AutoWeek written April 25, 2013: The Jetta is Volkswagen's franchise player in the United States. Last year, two of every five VWs sold here were a Jetta. The success springs from a simple formula: Combine a roomy compact sedan with a firm German ride and a sticker price that doesn't break the bank. It's been a winner for more than three decades in the States. The sixth-generation Jetta arrived two summers ago as a 2011 model. Designed with Americans in mind - part of VW's plan to boost US sales to 800,000 units by 2018 - the wheelbase grew 2.9 inches for more rear-seat legroom. New styling and a 0.8-inch cut in height resulted in a wider, sportier look. In its first full year on the market, sales soared 43.9 percent. VW swapped the previous generation's platform independent rear suspension for a beam axle and shifted the faux leather for upper trim levels. Low-level models sported too much hard plastic on the inside. To some, this Jetta felt cheap. Not so with the Jetta GLI which returned for the 2012 model year. Here is a well-equipped sixth-generation car with an independent rear suspension, sport tuning, lowered ride height and a limited-slip differential. Spotters should look for the larger front spoiler with vertical fog lights, red brake calipers and dual exhaust tips. Inside, the GLI is fitted for serious fun with large-bolster sport seats and a leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel and shifter, all with contrast red stitching. Your feet play with aluminum petals. Upgrading the Jetta GLI to the Autobahn trim gets you the Fender Panasonic audio system with 400 watts of sonic boom and a subwoofer in the trunk. VW fans recognize the upgraded hardware - it comes from the revered Golf GLI hatchback. But on the showroom floor, Americans overwhelmingly choose sedans. The GLI also donates Volkswagen's vaunted 2.0 liter TSI turbocharged four-cylinder, rated at 200 HP and 207 lb-ft of torque. Power flows to the front wheels through a six-speed manual or six-speed dual-clutch automated transmission. The purist in us favors the manual, but we tested a 2012 Jetta GLI with the DSG dual-clutch transmission. The first thing we learned is that the traction and stability control cannot be turned off. So a 0-60 mph sprint starts with a brief burst of wheel spin at launch as the turbo burst rises but is quickly shut down by the electronic watchdogs. We reached 60 mph in 6.5 seconds and covered the quarter-mile in 15.1 seconds at 93.3 mph. Now here's a hint for DSG owners: Put the shifter in sport mode, which permits the engine to briefly rev past the 6,000-rpm redline before changing gears. Thrown into corners, it takes a little care to push the GLI just short of the limit, where the momentum-killing electronics take over. We covered the slalom in 7.9 seconds at 42.4 mph and pulled 0.84 g on the skid pad. Overall, the car feels quite stable and the sport seats grip you without inflicting pain. The Jetta GLI's performance makes owners grin, but the value - on the sticker and at the gas pump - has them bust out in a smile. The car feels as planted as a BMW 3-series wrote one owner. For me, the price, performance and extra equipment make this the best all-around car for an enthusiast on a budget. We agree.

VW recalling 2.64M vehicles worldwide over engine, light issues

Thu, 14 Nov 2013

Volkswagen is staging a massive, worldwide recall that's already grown from 1.68 million to 2.64 million vehicles and covers three different issues across a number of vehicles. We already reported on 61,000 Tiguans getting recalled over lighting issues - that was just in the US. Globally, however, VW will be recalling 800,000 Tiguans, according to Automotive News, with the focus on CUVs built between 2008 and 2011. The issue with the Tiguan relates to a simple fuse swap, so this is rather unremarkable, aside from the sheer number of vehicles being fixed. The real, troubling issues relate to gearboxes and pickups.
239,000 Amarok pickups (pictured right) are being recalled over fuel leaks, while 1.6 million vehicles are being recalled to swap the synthetic oil in dual-clutch transmissions with mineral oil. Now, the transmission issue is one for the global Volkswagen Group to address, not just the VW brand - vehicles from Audi, Škoda and Seat use the same seven-speed DSG and are covered under the recall, as well.
Why the switch from synthetic to mineral oil? Apparently, using the synthetic oil in a DSG and then subjecting it to stop-and-go conditions or heavy loads in a hot and humid climate can lead to electronic malfunctions, according to a Volkswagen press release. The switch, from the sounds of it, is largely a preventative measure.

2014 Volkswagen XL1 [w/video]

World's Most Efficient Car Impresses, Not Without Compromises
Among our many duties at the recent Geneva Motor Show, we were offered a pretty exclusive drive in the new Volkswagen XL1 hyper-efficient plug-in diesel hybrid. There is so much that is interesting about a car like this reaching production from a major automaker that it's tough to know where to begin.
First off, you should know that - at least for this generation - there is absolutely no chance in Albuquerque that this "1-liter vehicle" (i.e. a vehicle that can burn just one liter of fuel to travel 100 kilometers, or 62.1 miles) will ever make it into the hands of North American customers. We, too, were having trouble imagining an XL1 in typical American traffic, surrounded by comparatively massive pickups and SUVs. The driving experience had us recalling a couple of weeks in 1999 when we drove the then-revolutionary Honda Insight hybrid on US roads. We keenly remember the feeling of being very small and vulnerable, even as we felt proudly green in our 61-mpg Tochigi pod. Thing is, the Volkswagen is smaller still, and nearly as light despite its more complex drivetrain and safety features.

Auto execs surveyed say VW, BMW most likely to grow

Thu, 17 Jan 2013

A new survey of top global automotive executives indicates both Volkswagen and BMW are the most likely to grow their market share over the next five years.
Tax advisory firm KPMG LLP has released its 14th annual Global Automotive Executive Survey, which includes responses from over 200 executives. A total of 81 percent of respondents said they expect to see Volkswagen make gains, compared to 70 percent last year. BMW, meanwhile, saw 70 percent of those surveyed say they believe the company will increase its market share. That's a jump of 7 percentage points over last year. This is the first time in the history of the survey that BMW has claimed the second-place spot.
Meanwhile, Hyundai has seen its perceived market share potential slacken for the third year in a row. Around 61 percent of those surveyed predicted gains for Hyundai, down from 63 in 2012. Toyota also has a surprising year, but for just the opposite reason. While the manufacturer had slipped in ranking since 2011, it enjoyed the largest increase of any company in the 2013 survey, jumping to 68 percent from 44 percent last year.
