    What Is The Timeline For Next Golf?

    William Maley

    Staff Writer - CheersandGears.com

    July 25, 2012

    Car & Driver reports that Volkswagen has confirmed the dates of when the Mark 7 Golf and its variants will be going on sale. The base Golf will go on sale next spring for European markets. North America has to wait until the fall to get theirs.

    However, North America and Europe will get their hands on next GTI at the same time when its launched next Fall.

    Also, Volkswagen is considering whether to send the next generation GTD over to the states. If you don't know what GTD is, take a regular GTI and drop a diesel engine into it.

    Would be a heck of a car if VW could get its reliability problems into line.

    I think the bodywork will look sweet...but the repairs...not so much.

    Once again, methinks GM might be building better cars than some of their competition....

    Clearly VW is hurting as I saw this morning on TV that the Puget Sound VW dealers are offering Golfs and Jetta's with no money down and only $79.95 a month for 36 month lease and 15K miles.

    This just screams I have crappy product and have to give it away like Mitsubishi did to keep cars moving off the lots.

    79 bucks? link please!!!! i wonder what the catch is.

    VW is NOT hurting. Passats and Jettas are flying out of showrooms. .....

    Golf is classic, for Europe. I wish they could sex up the Golf a bit. Something akin to a Verano hatch, pls.

    I might have leased one a couple years back if they hadn't had the lame 2.5 in it.

    Here is one I found on the net.

    http://www.leasetrader.com/Volkswagen-Jetta-Lease-Specials

    The company that was running the crazy $79 lease on Jetta's and other VW cars in a TV commercial was Larson Auto's VW dealerships. They are pretty much it for the area other than one other small family owned VW dealership in the northend.

    http://www.larsonvw.com/page/incentives/en/#

    This is their incentive page. It looks like the $79 might be on a stripped manual Jetta. But to confirm the price they want you to give them your info and they will get back to you.

    Flying out of the showrooms yes, but they still have the worst dealer network of any car maker, and a huge number of quality issues.

    love the scirrocco or whatever the German name is. Corrado?

    I don't think it would sell a lot here, but I do think VW would benefit from it being here.

    I parked next to a CC today, and I've always liked it..... but now I am not at all interested, and it's got the interior guts from the several years old old Passat.

    The new Jetta and Passat are not VW but are the new face of VW, and it is selling like mad. The Beetles, Golfs, and Rabbits are what VW sort of was.

    Yea saw Larsons add for Washington state again, Manual Jetta with cloth interior, am/fm hd radio and the normal required safety devices for $79 a month. For $89 a month they say you can step up to navigation and a few other bells and whistles and then they have a $99 jetta with auto and a $109 jetta fully loaded if I read the commercial right. So much thrown at you in a 30 sec spot.

    These lease rates should keep them moving cars, but I wonder if there is really any value in the residual and with their quality issues, I wonder how long these cars really will last.

    ...and ironically...I would have traded in the Miata for this rather than buying the MINI Cooper S had the Socorro been available.

    VW screwed themselves out of one sale (me and the Mrs) by not having this available stateside...

    read today where sergio marchonne is accusing VW of dumping cars in Europe.

    They're sort of dumping them here too, but their quest is to like double sales......

    even my Dad now wants to look at a new Passat diesel. He always wanted a Rabbit diesel. I highly doubt he will be ok with the build quality on the new VW's......

    • I was hunting around for Airbus 340 vids.  How I miss this plane.  Back in its heyday, if I got on an Airbus 340, I was sort of steamed I didn't get onto a Boeing 747.  Now, I wish I had ridden on more of them. This video is sort of long, but very educational.  For one, it pointed out that the Airbus 330 (twin) and Airbus 340 (quad) were developed at the same time and share a lot of parts ... both are 2-4-2.  The 340 (quad) fell out of favor, while the 330 (twin) keeps spawning new variants, the latest of which is the -900 neo.   They made 4 of the Airbus 340 - 200, 300, 500, and 600.  One saw a lot of 300s and then a lot of 600s.  I've flown on both.  The 300 "looks" better.  Yes, it was the current time's answer to the very dated Boeing 707 and its skinny engines.  The 600 roars and those big engines get that disproportionately long fuselage (longer than a 747, IIRC) to rotate fairly quickly. Just great!  A cool 300 version, flown by Swiss and obviously in Swiss airspace.  Did I mention that I miss this plane?
    • I couldn't photograph it, but I saw a near perfect silver Saturn Aura sedan today.  I don't see those often.  I'm guessing they were possibly on the same platform as the Grand Am and Alero, but they did a nice job with this car.  Toward the end, Saturn was making some nicer looking cars, quite a step up from the spartan jellybean products they initially rolled out. Some dog/car sightings ... all this afternoon: 1.  I went to the AAA to load up a travel card and a little black lab puppy was hanging his head out of the car window near where I had parked and was wagging up a storm. 2.  I was sitting there getting coffee and, looking at the drive through, a guy driving out of it with one of those whipped coffee drinks let his dog in the passenger seat take the first big lick out of all that whipped garbage on those drinks ... don't give your dog sweets. 3.  I saw an upline SUV from which a German Shepherd had hoisted himself up via the console and was sticking his head out of it. They are all goofy critters.
    • @ccap41 This will help as the final 17 states have approval that has triggered the first of the funds to install coast to coast along all national highways Chargers. States get final OK to build highway EV charging network | AP News QUOTE:  The Transportation Department said it had OK’d EV charger plans from a last set of 17 states, triggering the release of $1.5 billion in federal funds to all jurisdictions nationwide — or $5 billion over five years — to install or upgrade chargers along 75,000 miles (120,000 kilometers) of highway from coast to coast, with a goal of 500,000 EV chargers nationwide. Plans for the other 33 states and the District of Columbia were approved earlier this month.
    • No, I have not had a chance to see a GMC Hummer or the Rivian in person yet. While I have seen plenty of Rivian R1T around this area, I also saw on the news that the Bellevue service and delivery center had their first R1S's, I have not seen like you one in the wild yet. Thank you for posting, awesome to see. I do like just about everything on the Rivian both internally and externally. GMC Hummer, my big issue that we have discussed here in other threads and @Robert Hall and I believe others here have also mentioned is the depressing black all interiors and the lack of options for said interior colors. The First Edition GMC Hummers were a no go with that ugly colored black and white or was it grey and white, NASA inspired theme. While the wife and I both like the external styling, the internal is a failure to us for colors, style and layout is fine. I have to say that I am really liking the Rivian look and style works so well. It is going to be interesting to see what GM and Ford does for Full size SUV EV style. I also already responded to a GM survey on full size SUV/Trucks and bashed them about the lack of interior color options and exterior color options. Why does an EV from GM not have a green color of some sort to show off their Green Auto's?
