2009 Volkswagen Tiguan S (757)

Overview: This week we’re looking at the 2009 Volkswagen Tiguan S SUV. I took this on a road trip for a thorough testing and found it to be worthy of my trust. Highway as well as dirt roads, but I did not give it an off road test because it is...

2008 Volkswagen Jetta SE (705)

Overview: This week we’re looking at the 2008 Volkswagen Jetta SE 2.5 which is a substantial little compact that borders on being a luxury car relative to the competition. The Audi and Acura, although listed as competition, are over priced and cost to benefit suffers. However some people are more concerned...

2008 Volkswagen New Beetle S (668)

Overview: This week we’re looking at the 2008 Volkswagen New Beetle S coupe. But I have to bitch about the “dumbly engineered sun visors”. The windows are unusually large and the engineers and test drivers (yea right) went brain dead when they ignored the need to cover more of the window...

2007 Volkswagen Eos 3.2 liter (661)

Overview: This week we’re looking at the 2007 Volkswagen Eos (Greek goddess of dawn) 3.2 liter 2-door retractable hard top convertible. That is a leap forward and a leap of faith for VW much like the Phaeton which, of course, will haunt VW through each new launch. Well they need not worry...

2007 Volkswagen Rabbit 4-door (659)

Overview: This week we’re looking at the 2007 (late year model) Volkswagen Rabbit 4-door sedan.

2006 VW Jetta 2.5 (588)

Overview: This week we're looking at the 2006 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 4-door sedan. This is nice. I like the changes, even if it does resemble the Audi. Not that I dislike Audi. In fact the new grill treatment is growing on me, but I like the VW grill better. I enjoy driving...

2006 VW Passat 2.0 T (585)

Overview: This week we're looking at the 2006 Volkswagen Passat 2.0 T. VW does some great things and although the Phaeton was a bust I believe such efforts help to make the rest of the line better. Ahhh, well then the Edsel should have made Ford better you say. I'll have...

2005 Volkswagen Touareg SUV (557)

Overview: This week we're looking at the 2005 Volkswagen Touareg SUV. Classy is the first words to come to mind when looking at this SUV. And although I like SUV's like most of my readers I resist recommending them because of the impending fuel fiasco. 15-20 real miles per gallon is unacceptable,...

2005 Volkswagen GTI (556)

Overview: Ok, so after I drove the Jaguar XJR I knew I'd have to return to the real world. But thanks to VW I got to have a fun week driving the very agile Volkswagen GTI. I like speed so the Turbo was great and I even got to pass a...

2004 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan TDI (509)

Overview: This week I headed to the Pacific Northwest to test the 2004 Volkswagen Jetta. Why? Because I love that part of the world and this is the weekend for the cattlemen's Bar B Q in Southern Oregon. It's a time for fun and games and great Tri Tips to go...
