I know you’re in pain. Years of indignities, losses, betrayals and broken promises have left you empty and wondering if there’s anything left to be hopeful about. I feel much the same. But come with me. There is a better way. We can find peace together, in an old Volkswagen GTI.
Do your feet get tired from terrorizing whole cities at a time, particularly after climbing all the way up a skyscraper? You, giant mayhem creature, need a Volkswagen 411: the big Volkswagen.
We don’t know whether we should call this creation a Nissan Patrol or a Volkswagen Bus at this point, but it gets very muddy and that’s all that really matters.
This weekend I was doing a few minor repairs to my 1995 Audi S6 in preparation for Radwood next month. One of those involved replacing the 22-year-old self-dimming mirrors, which had discolored and separated a bit from their backing. I bought a set of European-style convex “blind spot” mirrors to fit for maximum rear…
The case could be made that the original Volkswagen Beetle is the most iconic car ever made. Its modern versions, well... not so much. But as part of its big diesel emissions cheating penance, Volkswagen is making a massive push into electric cars. And that could return the Beetle to its roots in an unexpected way.
Dieselgate has been a hell of a financial drain for Volkswagen, so the company has had to find some creative ways to save cash.
As part of its post-Dieselgate penance, Volkswagen is making a huge push toward electrification. But don’t expect plug-in hybrid electric vehicles to be part of that plan, at least not here in the United States.
I heard about Volkswagen discussing the possibility of a new, electric, MEB-archicture Kübelwagen or Thing a couple days ago, but was hesitant to write about it because, well, I’m not sure if it’s just idle talk or if there’s some grain of seriousness behind it. I guess it doesn’t really matter, because it’s…
It’s Friday. You know what that means. Time to take the Volkswagen BlueSport roadster out for a drive, even though VW never made it, so you can’t.
Volkswagen’s decision to cheat diesel emissions testing has been covered relentlessly ever since the automaker came clean about the scam in late 2015. The ins and outs of it never seem to get old, though, and German magazine Der Spiegel has a winding, fascinating tale today about the West Virginia University students…
U.S. regulators have approved a “fix” for 38,000 Volkswagen Auto Group 3.0-liter diesel SUVs, which should clean up some of the hundreds of thousands of deceptive emissions-spewing diesels in the U.S. and potentially save the company $1 billion.
Anyone can be a car enthusiast. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you drive. But it takes a special kind of maniac to own and love a car in New York City. If you’re gonna do it, you better do it in something interesting.
The Pikes Peak hillclimb is one of the most dangerous and challenging events in racing. The course is 12.4 miles long and climbs 4,700 feet to the summit of the mountain at over 14,000 feet above sea level. Volkswagen is making an all-electric race car to compete in the hillclimb next year.
The market, like nature, finds a way. Despite their ancient design, Volkswagen Beetles were famously still made in Mexico until 2003 and incredibly common as Mexico City taxi cabs until 2012. They’re illegal for cab use there now for being too unsafe, but the city’s Cuautepec area is plenty dangerous on its own.
Following concerns about the manual on the Volkswagen Jetta GLI getting dropped for the 2018 model year, company executives have reached out to reassure us all that the shifty-stick will be returning on the updated Jetta for the 2019 model year. Every day we inch closer to a nuclear war that will wipe out the vast…
The time has come to mourn the death of yet another sporty car nameplate. This one doesn’t affect the North American market, and while inevitable, it’s kind of a bummer nonetheless. The Volkswagen Scirocco is no more.
