​I Just Want To Shove A Mattress In The New VW Transporter And Drive

I'm sure Volkswagen has a perfectly good business case to explain why it doesn't sell the Transporter in the U.S. I don't really care, because all I can think about is driving the new T6 cross-country and living inside, particularly now that I know the internal codename VW uses for its new diesel engine. » 4/15/15 10:30pm 4/15/15 10:30pm

The Volkswagen Golf R400 May Be Coming To A Dealer Near You

Volkswagen's Website Still Sucks

I spend a lot of time on manufacturer websites configuring various cars and trucks. Sometimes I even get paid to visit these sites in order to help a client figure out what model, trim, and options would be best.

10 Best VW Phaetons You Can Buy Right Now

I've made my list, checked it more times than I'd care to admit and now I'm ready to share. When I was in the market for a vehicle earlier this year I very nearly pulled the trigger on one of these fine examples you'll find below. It was to the point where I was ready to call up my grandparents in northern Louisiana… » 8/28/14 1:30pm 8/28/14 1:30pm
