I thought we were going to get an AWD version... Will it only come in Alltrack guise? »
In the spirit of the now gone Top Gear, I have decided to honor them by creating a people carrier (minivan to us Americans) racing series with 3D Tuning based on this episode: »
Today I was going along nicely towards my brightly colored home, being transported by all 1.4 Liters of BlueMotion’ed turbocharged fury when all of a sudden this “CHECK OIL LEVEL” message and triangular exclamation mark icon light came on: »
So it’s been 3 months since my accident in February where I totaled my Passat wagon. :( I am finally on the last step of recovery. Finally got my brace off and can start therapy to bend my knee again. My lung is fully healed and finally feeling free again. Now begins the quest to find a car. »
Just seen this, and the want is strong, a TWIN TURBO 993 Porsche engined
T3 with a 6 SPEED MANUAL. So fine. »
So my father-in-law has one, his is silver so its not this white one, its the other one. His Routan has 63,000 miles on it and it sounds like crap. I just drove it tonight for a couple of hours and despite the fact that its supremely comfortable and the interior is holding up well considering what it is...the… »
The Bombardier beetle is a finely engineered bio-mechanical machine which deliberately mixes precise amounts of hydrogen peroxide and hydroquinones, and uses a rapidly moving valve system.

Well, that was unexpected. According to multiple news sources (Automotive News and BBC) Volkswagen board Chairman Ferdinand Piech. He just tried to oust his hand picked successor, CEO Martin Winterkorn, but he found himself alone when the board said nein. Piech has been kingmaker at VW for years, but, apparently, that… »
Yesterday my girlfriend and I left Volkswagen of Santa Monica in a brand new Golf 1.8 TSI. Sounds simple enough but let me tell ya, the past three days have been a hilarious journey through the highs and lows of the car buying process. »
The 1995 Volkswagen Noah: embodying the curvaceous Bauhaus design ethos of VW in the 90s. There’s a whole lot of the later Jetta and Passat in the surfacing and cutlines. A spacious (but small-footprint) one-box six-seater.
