See Wikipedia for more info on Chinese VW's




The Volkswagen Group is represented in China with 12 brands and has delivered over 35 million vehicles with its joint venture partners FAW (FAW-Volkswagen) and SAIC (SAIC VOLKSWAGEN) since entering the Chinese market in 1984. Volkswagen Group China has over 100,000 employees at 34 Chinese production plants in 23 locations. In 2017, approximately 3,000 dealers (with 330,000 employees) sold 150 different Volkswagen Group models totalling 4.18 million vehicles in the People's Republic of China – this represents an increase of 5.1% as compared to the previous year. As of August 2018, the Volkswagen Group holds an 18.3% share of the Chinese passenger car market.

Just heard how successful the Volkswagen company there in China.

New here and found this thread

Dec 2018 bought a 2006 Mk4 Golf for our son heading off to college summer 2019. To make sure it was ready for the cross country trip (several anticipated), we did full suspension, cam,timing belt, tune, and most anything else that could be done short of actually tearing into the block. After a couple false starts, we headed up to Cape Flattery on the Olympic Peninsula since it is considered the most northwestern point in continental US then proceeded to drive to Key West to visit family before heading up to his school in Daytona Beach.
5400 miles in 8 days. Updated with our trip back after installing a new transmission in the parking lot of his school to drive back. 3400 miles in 55 hours + change.

Car got attacked by a bison in Yellowstone and tore up rear passenger door pretty bad. Just bought a donor twin to his that I am likely going to turn into my commuter since it should get roughly 2.5X the mileage of my Ram 2500 with Cummins.
If you count all the trips, airports, etc, my map looks a lot different.

I ended up driving through Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama last month, bringing my total up to 48 states visited. The only two remaining states are North Dakota and Alaska.

I hope to get North Dakota in May, but that depends on Tesla finishing construction of their Supercharger network across I-94, although it's certainly possible to make the trip or at least visit the state without using Superchargers. Alaska will happen next year. Then I need to plan a coast-to-coast trip across Canada, just for fun.

An 03 GTI VR6, my 86 GTI VR6, and my current TDI did the large majority of these states. My Cobalt ticked a couple of these boxes too though.

I think my next major road trip will tick the rest of CONUS off the list.

Last cross country trip I went to mt Rushmore crazy horse and Yellowstone. Coming out of Yellowstone to Salt Lake City and going through the 12 miles of Montana into Idaho and south to Salt Lake City put me in all the 48. I’m hearing the Alcan highway can be tedious, but it may be done after I retire. Not a fan of flying so I’ll wait for the bridge to Hawaii to be built. :)

Depends on how you drive it. I had a new 2015 GSW I bought in Orlando and drove it home. From Helena, MT, it took me 5 days to get to Anchorage, driving by myself in September. If you drive in summer when it doesn't get dark, you may be able to do it in less time. I overnighted in Calgary, Dawson Creek, Watson Lake, and Whitehorse. I had time to do some cycling or hiking each day. Bon voyage!

After our last trip taking the son back to school in Florida, we ticked off a few more states. We had planned to get several more but we were right in front of all the really bad storms that hit the Midwest back in early August and we had to make certain we were in Daytona Beach to meet the wife on the 13th.



We will be filling in several of the gray states on our trip back next summer.
