    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......

      Volkswagen and their U.S. dealers have had a tense relationship since the diesel emission scandal broke. From the departure of Michael Horn to dealer meetings where tough questions were being asked to Volkswagen executives. But it seems some progress is being made on repairing it. 
      In a statement released today, Volkswagen announced they have reached an “agreement in principle” with its dealers over compensation for losses due to the diesel emission scandal. According to Automotive News, the preliminary agreement will see dealers get a cash payout within 18 months from a settlement fund. The payout for each dealer will be determined by a formula that is currently being worked out. Volkswagen has also agreed to purchase "“unfixable, used” diesel vehicles from dealer inventory under the same terms as buyback offers for consumers".
      This settlement comes after a group of Volkswagen dealers filed a lawsuit against the German automaker back in April.
      The settlement is still being finalized and will need to get the approval of U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer in San Francisco before anything else can happen. Volkswagen says they hope to have everything finalized by September.
      “We believe this agreement in principle with Volkswagen dealers is a very important step in our commitment to making things right for all our stakeholders in the United States,” said Hinrich J. Woebcken, CEO of the North American Region, Volkswagen in a statement.

      Volkswagen and VW-Branded Franchise Dealers in the U.S. Reach Agreement in Principle to Resolve Diesel Litigation
      Herndon, VA - August 25, 2016 - Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (“Volkswagen”) today announced it has reached an agreement in principle to resolve the claims of VW-branded franchise dealers in the United States relating to TDI vehicles affected by the diesel matter and other matters asserted concerning the value of the franchise. Volkswagen has agreed to make cash payments and provide additional benefits to the dealers to resolve alleged past, current and future claims of losses in franchise value. Volkswagen and the dealers’ counsel will now work to finalize details of the proposed settlement, including how to apportion payments to dealers in the appropriate manner.
      Details of the agreement in principle are still under discussion and are expected to be finalized at the end of September. Any proposed agreement will become effective only after approval by the Court, and the parties have agreed to keep further terms confidential as they work to finalize the agreement. Under the agreement, Volkswagen will consent to the certification – for settlement purposes only – of a class of VW-branded franchise dealers in the United States as of an agreed date. 
      “We believe this agreement in principle with Volkswagen dealers is a very important step in our commitment to making things right for all our stakeholders in the United States,” said Hinrich J. Woebcken, CEO of the North American Region, Volkswagen. “Our dealers are our partners and we value their ongoing loyalty and passion for the Volkswagen brand. This agreement, when finalized, will strengthen the foundation for our future together and further emphasize our commitment both to our partners and the U.S. market.”
      Steve Berman, Managing Partner of the dealers’ counsel Hagens Berman, said, “Our clients recognized the best solution would be one that not only allows them to recoup lost franchise value and continue to employ thousands of American workers, but one that also charts a strong course for the recovery of the Volkswagen brand in the United States.”  Berman added, “Now that there is a path forward for dealers, they can continue to work proactively to take great care of their customers, who are also VW customers.”
      The plaintiffs filed the initial complaint against Volkswagen on April 6, 2016, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. The litigation was subsequently transferred to the multidistrict proceedings in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.

      We know a fair amount of Volkswagen's upcoming three-row crossover,
      It will be built in Chattanooga, TN Engines will include a 3.6L V6, 2.0L Turbo-four, and Hybrid. (No diesel) Using the MQB platform Possibly named Teramont  But we don't know much about how it looks. Yes, we have seen spy shots that tell us it will possibly look like the CrossBlue concept from a few years back. That doesn't mean there are still some surprises in store. We now have the full picture thanks to some leaked shots.
       
      Chinese outlet Auto Sina got their hands on photos showing Volkswagen's new crossover in an engineering garage. The production model matches up with the CrossBlue in terms of overall design. The front end features a large grille, LED headlights, and a chunky front bumper. The interior features a similar center stack design found in other Volkswagen models. 
      The crossover features a V6 badge, which most likely hints at a 3.6L V6.

      Volkswagen is facing criminal charges over the diesel emission scandal in the U.S. The Wall Street Journal reports that investigators from the U.S. Justice Department have found evidence of criminal wrongdoing. It is unclear what the evidence is. According to sources, federal prosecutors are still trying to figure out what charges should be brought against Volkswagen.
       
      Sources go on to say that prosecutors and lawyers from Volkswagen have held preliminary discussions about the case. The two parties are trying to reach a settlement before the end of the year. A matter up for debate is whether the Justice Department will seek a guilty plea or a deferred prosecution agreement; a deal with the U.S. Government would aim to dismiss the charges at a later date if the automaker complies to terms of a settlement. Both Toyota and General Motors have gone down this route recently, dealing with safety issues.
       
      Investigators have been reviewing over 1.5 million documents as part of the criminal probe. Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates said back in June the probe involved “multiple individuals.” It is unknown if prosecutors are planning to charge Volkswagen employees over the diesel emission scandal. If so, they would need to be extradited from Germany to have their day in court.
