2004 Volkswagen Passat Gl Tdi, Diesel on 2040-cars

Year:2004 Mileage:164200
Location:

Fincastle, Virginia, United States

Fincastle, Virginia, United States

This 2004 Passat TDI is a rare diesel car that I have owned for more than half of its mileage.  I will continue to drive it 45 miles or so daily with confidence until it sells so the mileage will be increasing.  The fuel economy is excellent.  Visit the government crash test websites to review the high  scores that it has for crash safety.  It was recently inspected and passed without issues.  I changed the oil and filter this month.  The heat and air conditioning works as it should.  The Tiptronic transmission option makes this car really fun to drive if you want to take control over the automatic transmission.  It will have the owners manual, and 2 key/remotes.  It is clean and has never been smoked in.  

It is showing signs of its age such as cloth seat wear, interior door handle finish wear, an intermittent temperature sensor for the dashboard temp indicator (does not affect engine behavior) and an intermittent left rear electric door lock that works manually.  Most paint has chips have been filled over to prevent rust.  There a few minor dings on the body.  The pictures detail the rough spots.  It is soon due for a timing service that is customary for this engine as preventive maintenance.

This is a used car that I am selling as is without any warranty, no shipping, and no delivery.  The buyer must make arrangements to pick up or transfer it.  The title is clear and will be signed when the transaction is confirmed through Paypal.  A down payment deposit to paypal of $1000 is required.  Buyer must arrange for balance payoff (paypal preferred) and pickup within 14 days of purchase (negotiable).  The down payment may be non-refundable if the sale is not completed in agreed terms.

North American production of foreign marques to jump in 2014

Sun, 23 Dec 2012

Wards Auto has released its North American Light Vehicle Production Forecast for 2014, and the report predicts foreign manufacturers will increase production on the continent some 3.9 percent by 2014. If accurate, that should see 123,000 additional cars, trucks and vans produced in North America, swelling the total number of units produced both by domestic and foreign manufacturers to 16.9 million light vehicles from a projected 15.6 million in 2013. Much of the increase can be attributed to the fact that Toyota intends to produce another car at its Blue Springs, MS plant as well as a new Lexus model at its Georgetown, KY facility in a year's time.
Likewise, Volkswagen intends to move production of a currently imported model to its plant in Puebla, Mexico. Daimler, Honda, Nissan and Mazda also plan to build additional models on North American soil for the first time. Around two-thirds of the new North American manufacturing will take place in Mexico, helping the country soak up a full 20 percent of the content's automotive production for the first time. You can head over to the Wards Auto site for the full report.

Touring the Volkswagen Museum in Wolfsburg

Mon, 23 Sep 2013

Forgive the ribbon up top - this isn't so much of a Read This as a Look At This. Ran When Parked took a tour of the sprawling Volkswagen Museum in Wolfsburg, and while there's a spot of text about the different and unique vehicles on display in the rotating exhibits, it's largely the collection of pictures of odd, one-off VW-badged cars and vans that excites. If you're a fan of the weird and wild, this is a post you'll want to look at.
As RWP points out, this is the larger, but less busy, museum targeted purely at Volkswagen products. The smaller AutoStadt museum, meanwhile, covers a much broader swath, with products from other Volkswagen Group members.

World Car Of The Year down to its final four

Wed, 13 Mar 2013


Judges for the World Car of the Year Award have narrowed down the finalists to just four vehicles. Out of a total of 42 entries, only the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, Porsche Boxster/Cayman, Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ/Toyota GT-86 and Volkswagen Golf remain standing. For Volkswagen, this marks the second consecutive year the company has had an entry among the finalists, and the fourth time since 2009. In order to qualify, a vehicle must be on sale on two continents during the span of time between January 1, 2013 and May 30, 2013. A panel of 66 journalists from 23 countries then vote on the finalists.
Three vehicles have made the cut for the last round of voting on the 2013 World Performance Car as well, with the Cayman/Boxster and FR-S/BRZ/GT-86 running against the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. Meanwhile, the Renault Zoe, Tesla Model S and Volvo V60 Plug-In Hybrid are duking it out for the World Green Car Award. Finally, the World Car Design of the Year Award is up for grabs between the Aston Martin Vanquish, Jaguar F-Type, and the Mazda6. Check out the full press release below. Overall winners will be presented at the 2013 New York Auto Show.
